** We’ll be updating this feed constantly with pictures, info, and anything else  we think you might find, interesting.

At 7:30 AM Pacific Time this morning I’ll be hopping aboard a charter jet bound for Las Vegas.

A quick side note…charter jets to Vegas are becoming trendy in the golf industry.

A small number of us super-important (my classification, likely nobody else’s) media types are on-hand to check out what’s being described as TaylorMade’s latest product innovation.

Fortunately, we’re not being embargoed this time around so I’ll be able to share pictures of the new product along with images from inside the new TaylorMade Golf Experience; TaylorMade’s first retail location (which as it turns out used to be a Callaway retail location).

After a tour of the new digs we’ll head out to the range for what TaylorMade is bravely calling a “new product validation experience”. While we haven’t actually validated anything at this point, I’ll concede this much;

With TaylorMade it’s always an experience.

After a quick lunch we’ll be heading out…I suppose to…further validate the new product over a round of golf at the Wynn. Check back often, and be sure to let us know what you think of what you see.

LIVE! – From Cobra/Puma Golf

Today is something new on MyGolfSpy.

We are on-site at Cobra-Puma Golf. Instead of us getting the scoop on all the new gear, and then you having to wait for us to get back to get the news, we are testing out a GO LIVE function on the site so you can get it real-time. We have created a LIVE function right on the homepage. This way anything we see, photograph or talk about you will be able to see as it happens.

So, keep your screen open and just hit refresh and watch the scoop come directly to you.

We are in Carlsbad, CA at the LaCosta Resort. COBRA PUMA is putting on their “What’s Your Fly Challenge”. Follow along as we provide coverage of the event from demo day to 18 holes on the LaCosta Championship Course, and talk equipment with PGA Tour Professionals Rickie Fowler, Ian Poulter, and Jonas Blixt.

Join the conversation!
