Top 10 Hottest Golf Clubs Mar 2008

Here are the Top 10 Hottest Golf Clubs for the month of Mar 2008. These were the hottest golf clubs in demand during the month of March... Yes! Ping has the number 1 spot again.

1. Ping Eye 2 Iron set
2. Callaway Golf X-20 Iron Set
3. TaylorMade r7 Iron set
4. Titleist 690 MB Forged Iron set
5. Ping G5 Iron set
6. Callaway Golf X-18 Iron Set
7. TaylorMade RAC OS Iron set
8. Titleist 905R Driver
9. TaylorMade Burner 460 Driver
10. Ping G5 Driver

I think it has been 18 months straight that the The Ping Eye 2 iron set has been in the #1 position? I've received comments from golfers who have played these irons, but I welcome others to comment as well.

The hottest golf club for this month is the Titleist 690 MB Forged Iron set, which made it's debut in the top 10 coming in at #4. The Titleist Vokey Spin Milled Wedge made its debut last month, but it has fallen off the top 10. Taylormade continues to show strong with 3 of their products in the top 10.

Just in case you missed it, here's my post of The Hottest Golf Clubs Feb 2008, which is how the top 10 clubs finished for the month of Feb 2008.

What's In Trevor Immelman's Golf Bag - 2008 Masters

Trevor Immelman won his 1st career PGA Major tour event last weekend by winning the 2008 Masters at Augusta National in Augusta, Georgia. Do you want to know what Trevor was carrying in his golf bag during the win?

Driver: Nike SUMO 5000
4 Wood: Nike SQ II 17°
Hybrid: Nike SUMO 21°
Irons:  4-PW Nike CCI cast
GW:     Nike SV 50°
SW:     Nike SV 54°
LW:     Nike SV 60°
Putter: Scotty Cameron by Titleist prototype
Ball:   Nike ONE Platinum featuring Nike Power Transfer Technology

Trevor played some solid golf on Sunday under extreme playing conditions with the wind gusting to 35 mph, but that came to an end when he reached the par 3 16th. He put his tee shot into the water and walked away with a double-bogey and only a 3-shot lead, but by then everyone else had faded and his 3-over 75 gave him a 3-shot victory. Tiger showed his golf mortality on the back nine by missing about 4 putts in the 6 to 8 foot range and added a 3-putt, but he still managed to shoot a par 72 and take second place. Brandt Snedeker played his heart out, but finished with a 5-over 77 and 3rd place. Steve Flesch faded on the back nine and shot a 79. Immelman took home $1,350,000 for the win.

Immelman was the man to beat from Day 1. He became the first champion in 24 years to win after being the first-round co-leader.
