Jordan Spieth Crushes Day One of the Masters

Friday, April 10th, 2015

Fortune smiled on Jordan Spieth on day one of the 2015 Masters, coming in at 8 under par (64) to become the youngest ever to lead the event after 18 holes.

jordan spieth crushed day 1 of 2015 masters

Holes 12, 13, and 14 transformed from tragedy to triumph as a short putt on 12 appeared to be headed just right of the hole, but found its way in for a birdie, putting him at 6 under. At the par-5 13th hole, luck was on his side as Spieth’s tee shot flew right, ricocheted off a tree and landed square in the fairway, leading to yet another birdie. 14 looked troublesome as the only bunker-less hole on the course, but Jordan maintained his cool and made a Masters-worthy shot which put the ball on the green for… you guessed it… another birdie.

One hole 15, Spieth appeared to have used up all of his luck, bogeying the par-5, but pulled it together with his ninth birdie on the 18th to come in at a near record-setting 64, 8 under par, second only to Greg Norman and Nick Price.

None of the previous 3 players to play an opening round of 64 or better have gone on to win the Masters. Greg Norman who shot a 63 in 1969 after 18 holes finished second, in 1990, Mike Donald finished 47th after finishing round 1 with 64 and in 1940, Lloyd Mangrum finished second after ending day 1 with a 64.

The world is watching!

Ping G20 Driver

Friday, August 5th, 2011

Ping’s new lineup set to launch next week is one of the most exciting product launches of the last few years.  The G15 driver and irons are easily considered Ping’s best efforts to date and knowing Ping, the new G20 lineup will once again surpass the bar they have set for themselves.  The G15 driver was easily one of the most talked about drivers in the golf community and it has had much success on all professional tours and is commonly referred to as the modern, “holy grail” of drivers.   The G15 is consistent, long, accurate and it looks great at address.  The G20 driver begins where the G15 left off and so far, the reports from the Ping camp have been very positive.  The G20 is very similar in size and shape to the G15 however it features a dark metallic gray paint job reminiscent of the Titleist 975 D.  Engineers at Ping wanted to increase ball speeds across the entire hitting surface and raise the MOI and they were able to do so by altering the thickness of the crown and body.  The savings in weight from key target areas allows for more weight to be distributed lower and farther back in the club head for increased launch with lower spin rates.  The G20 driver will be officially available on August 11 th, pre-order new driver today!!!

BudgetGolf.com  is pleased to announce that we were recently ranked as “Excellent” in Customer Satisfaction by STELLAService! STELLAService is an independent, third-party company that rates the performance of online stores. They are the nation’s leading customer service ranking company and employ the most comprehensive evaluation methodology ever created. Here is how they describe their process. 

“Our in-depth evaluations are designed around you [the consumer] and your [the consumers] shopping experience. To find out what that experience may be with a given retailer, our team goes shopping. We navigate sites, we conduct usability tests, we order and return products and we engage in over a dozen interactions with each company’s customer service representatives via phone, email and live chat. And we do it all undercover, so our findings are unbiased and true to the experience.”

BudgetGolf.com was anonymously chosen late last year and was unaware that STELLAService was conducting this evaluation. We were excited to discover that they had ranked us as “Excellent” which means that our customers can order from us with confidence and expect the highest levels of service and performance.

Just a few of the companies that have been evaluated by STELLAService and received the same “Excellent” rating are The Home Depot, Dell, Garmin, Callaway Golf, and Omaha Steaks.  To find out more on what STELLAService had to say about us, or to speak with a senior team member, please contact us at 866-336-3300.
