Jordan Spieth: a New Era in Golf!

Jordan Spieth had a historical year for professional golf in 2015. 6 victories, 2 of which were majors, and earnings in excess of $53 million! 2015 will forever be ingrained in the archives as the breakout year for Jordan Spieth, but questions have arisen: can he follow up on such unprecedented success in 2016? Spieth squelched doubters quickly, as he ran away with the Tournament of Champions in Hawaii this weekend, the first event of the year! There is no question, Jordan Spieth is the real deal, and he can handle the pressure that comes with the rigors of golf on the world’s largest stages. But another pressure may be resting on the shoulders of this 22 year old phenom. A pressure much bigger than a back nine on Sunday to win a tournament. Jordan Spieth may be responsible for the next era of golf.

With that $53 million haul this past year, Spieth became golf’s top earner, surpassing the forever incumbent Tiger Woods from his perch at the top of the Tour’s money tree. There is no doubt that Tiger Woods is a shell of the player he once was, the superhuman talent that produced jaw dropping performances and ran away from the field week after week, year after year. The “Tiger Effect” propelled golf into the youthful realm of social media and pop culture. Over the past few years, several injuries and off-the-course issues have kept Tiger from competing at the level we had come to know and expect in the late 90′s and early 00′s, but the “Effect” undoubtedly lives on. A rare participation from Woods in a tournament turns the media into a frenzy; TV ratings spike during tournament coverage, and ticket and apparel sales soar to record heights. In 2015, The Golf Channel even provided live coverage of Tiger’s empty parking spot at a tournament while awaiting his eminent arrival. No kidding, his empty parking spot. At an injury-riddled 39 years old, Tiger Woods can no longer light up the course, but he remains the top trending athlete in golf and one of the most popular athletes on the planet.

Thus, a void is beginning to grow as Tiger Woods fades from the game. Who will fill his shoes in the spotlight? Sports analysts and journalists have suggested a group of young talent will take the reigns as golf’s next stars. We will agree, golf does not have a shortage of rising stars; Rory Mcilroy, Rickie Fowler, and Jason Day have all made their splashes on the biggest stages, but none have sustained success week after week.

Enter Jordan Spieth. The youngest in this flock of youthful talent, and by far the most consistent. Jack Nicklaus sustained success over the course of 5 decades. Yes, the 18 Majors stand out, but most people don’t realize he finished 2nd 19 times in Majors. 19! If he wasn’t winning, he was always in the mix on the back nine on Sunday- always in the spotlight. Jordan Spieth won 6 tournaments during the 2015 season, and finished in the top 5 in an additional 7 tournaments. The sustained success is there.

The fantastic start to 2016 only solidifies that Jordan Spieth can be the front runner in filling golf’s void. Sports fans of today need a sure thing to route for, a trend. As the post-Tiger era looms, golf is desperate for it. There is no argument: no one will ever dominate the game of golf like Tiger Woods did; it is a moment in history that will forever be admired and talked about. But if there was anyone that could help usher sports fans into a new era of golf, no one is more prepared than a 22 year old from Texas. So, if you haven’t already, we suggest watching Jordan Spieth this year. He’ll be the one leading the tournament on Sunday.

No longer will losing your last ball end your game. With the 3m extending arm you can use this to retrieve your ball from most tricky areas.

Personalized Golf Towel - Wipe away the tears and sweat after a vigorous golfing game with this great gift. It’s also a good way to keep clubs and golf balls clean.

Rain Gear – Nobody wants to admit they might get caught in the rain occasionally. Why not give packable rain gear that they can keep with them always.

How to Keep Your Golf Clubs Safe When Traveling

In this day and age you’d think the airlines would have it all figured out when it comes to shipping golf clubs, people and cargo without damaging any of it and yet that still doesn’t seem to be the case. In an attempt to get at least your golf clubs to your destination without them being broken, bent or otherwise damaged, we’ll provide you with some tips here that should work in your favor.
Myrtle Beach golf packages
1. Invest in a decent travel bag. This is a bag that your golf bag and clubs go inside of. Purchase a well-made travel bag for your clubs – either a hard shelled or soft sided bag. Go online and read reviews about the different types and brands of bags and then invest in the best one you can afford. Believe us when we say it will pay for itself tenfold.

2. We recommend when you pack your clubs you secure all the same height clubs together, then protect the ends with something secure like clothing or towels, and secure them tightly. Check with the airline guidelines in advance to see what restrictions may be placed on what you can pack with your clubs. There will likely be weight restrictions.

3. If you have the option to ship your clubs rather than fly them to your destination you might want to consider doing that instead.

4. Label everything securely and not just the outer travel bag. You can’t have too much ID on your bags and clubs should they come up missing.

5. Avoid stop over’s during your flight if you can help it. Even if it means paying a little more at least you won’t have the worry about whether your clubs make it to the right plane or not.

Myrtle Beach golf packages6. Because weight matters, only bring the clubs you know you use the most. It’s simply not necessary to bring all 14 clubs. Bring just a dozen balls and just one pair of golf shoes. Keep in mind that anything you have at home can be replaced at your destination with just one short shopping trip. Keep that in mind and you’ll be less inclined to over pack.

Once your clubs are packed, if you haven’t secured your accommodations yet you’d better do so. Check us out at Myrtle Beach Golf — we’re the KING of Myrtle Beach golf and can find you not just the most comfortable accommodations but also the best Myrtle Beach golf packages in the area. If you’d like to speak with one of our reservationists just give MBGolf a call at 800-422-1587 today!
