Marc Leishman Wins Arnold Palmer Invitational Wearing NexBelt | Winning Fashion

Why Your Next Belt May Be A NexBelt

With a 52-foot eagle putt on the 16th hole that would have made the late Arnold Palmer proud, Australia’s Marc Leishman took the lead at the Arnold Palmer Invitational on Sunday that led to a one-stroke victory.

Leishman fired rounds of 71, 66, 71 and 69 at Bay Hill to finish with a score of 277 (11 under par). Marc made the win possible by holing a 50-foot eagle putt on the 16th hole and then sank his par putt on the final hole to seal the victory. Marc was inspired to win a trophy for his two sons, Harvey and Ollie, and he thought of Harvey for an extra dose of confidence as he stood over his final putt.

This was Leishman’s second PGA TOUR win, and the first one that his wife Audrey and their two sons were on-hand to watch.

“It’s been a real dream and a real motivation to win a trophy for Harvey and Ollie, and the fact that we’re all here together is a dream come true,” said Audrey.

Marc’s victory earned him a paycheck for $1.56 Million and 500 FedEx Cup Points. He is currently ranked 11th on the FedEx Cup Points List and 32nd in the Official World Golf Rankings. This victory also earned Leishman an invitation to The Masters in two weeks.

2017 Golf Equipment

What’s New For Golf Bags and Equipment in 2017?

As the 2017 golf season makes way for new gear and technology, we wanted to give you a list of some of the best golf equipment that’s been released so far (sported by some famous PGA Pro Players, too).

Driver – Taylormade M1
Clubs come and go in Dustin Johnson’s bag with a fair amount of frequency, but he has a special love for his Taylormade M1 driver. In fact, he won the Genesis Open and WGC-Mexico Championship using this driver (way to go DJ!)

The new M1 uses 43 percent more carbon fiber than its predecessor, which really helps with creating a higher launch angle. The design is sleek, slim and more forgiving than its predecessor. It also has a new aluminum loft sleeve and an active speed pocket, causing drives to fly with excessive spin.

Fairway Wood – Tour Edge Ex10
To make a driver that can deliver more distance off the tee, Tour Edge designed the new Exotics EX10 driver using two kinds of titanium to create a faster-flexing face. The BSP Beta titanium used in the face is so light that it allowed engineers to make the hitting area larger, which broadened the sweetspot for golfers.

Hybrid – Callaway Steelhead XR

The new Steelhead heads are longer from heel-to-toe and deeper from front-to-back, which according to Callaway, makes the hybrid longer, more forgiving and easier to launch. The Steelhead XR should slip through grass, whether you’re in the fairway or in the rough, a little more easily.

Irons – Edel Single Length
Single length iron sets have gotten much more press since Bryson DeChambeau has been using them. Edel Golf made DeChambeau’s earliest single-length sets. It seems odd to think about using irons that are the same size, but the logic behind single-length iron sets is simple: It promotes a more consistent swing and eliminates the need to make stance, ball-position and swing-plane adjustments as the club gets longer or shorter.

Wedges – Cleveland RTX 3 Line
Cleveland’s RTX-3 line includes both traditional blade designs and cavity back models and a full complement of 34 loft and bounce combinations with three sole grinds. The three sole grinds all incorporate a larger initial bounce angle which will improve the way the club moves through the turf so the head loses less speed. There was also some tweaks to its three-tiered approach to grooves and surface roughness on the face for better spin on the golf course

Putter – Bettinardi
Bettinardi has made putters for some of the game’s best, with more than 20 wins on the PGA Tour since 2000. In Jan 2017, Bettinardi released eight new putter models, all featuring a gray finish and a blue-black color scheme, as well as the company’s hallmark F.I.T. Face technology, where material is removed from the face in order to produce a softer feel at impact.

Ball – Snell “My Tour”
Some golfers want a ball that flies farther than the rest, others want green-side spin, while yet others search for the soft feeling. The Snell My Tour Ball is one that meets all the criteria, with an expensive price attached to it. My Tour Ball is the Snell’s premium offering and sells for $31.99 per dozen and provides low compression to reduce spin and increase distance off the longer clubs.
