Incentives to buy condo at Coral Canyon: Free Harley

If the course isn’t enough of an incentive, it looks like a free Harley-Davidson should sweeten the deal on a condo at Coral Canyon.

My location on Twitter: result of a great drive!

I realized tonight that my location status on Twitter shows me at the end of a great drive on the 7th hole at Talon’s Cove. I think I’ll leave my location at 40.327454,-111.901138.

Bring on the snow

I’m officially ready for the snow. The weather has been so great that I’ve been struggling to work inside all day. I’ve watched so many beautiful days from my desk that I worried I wouldn’t be able to transition to winter. That all changed today. On the golf course. I went to Thanksgiving Point thinking […]

TaylorMade Golf’s CTO: The Inside of Club Design

Today technology and science are pushing distance and performance for both tour players and weekend warriors. Benoit Vincent, TaylorMade Golf’s Chief Technology Officer, talks with Brad Baldwin about how technology and innovation are driving golf club design. Computer Aided Design (CAD) and sophisticated analysis and monitoring tools allow designers to create, “play” and even hear a club in a digital world long before it’s crafted into titanium or steel. Borrowing manufacturing processes from the aerospace industry, TaylorMade is stretching the limits of what a driver should look like and how it will perform.

TaylorMade Golf’s Product & Brand Man, Sean Toulon

Working with tour players like Sergio Garcia, Retief Goosen, Darren Clark, John Daly, Paula Creamer, and on and on. Working with an engineering team that pushes the limits of aerospace materials and design strategies to create 460cc marvels of art and function. As Sean said, “golfers are a pretty passionate group.”I learned that Sean was the guy behind the product, business, and marketing plans to create and launch the R7 driver. As he said in the podcast, he arrived at a European tour event on a Monday night with drivers in hand for testing.

Brad at TaylorMade

I interviewed Sean Toulon, EVP of Product and Brand Creation, and Benoit Vincent, Chief Technical Officer for a story I’m doing over at Rocky Mountain Voices…. He is one of the key guys (if not the key guy) responsible for creating the single driver head and customizing for each player with the Moveable Weight Technology (MWT)…. His background in aerospace design is coming to use with the new materials and manufacturing processes to create golf clubs and balls on computers first and then prototype second.
