GT Tech Awards 2007



Bonus Winners:

Stay Grounded Award: Adidas PowerBand
A shoe that adds power to your swing? Yes, it’s possible. The PowerBand series from adidas displaces weight away from the weaker regions of the foot, helping to better leverage the golf swing against the ground. The result? More power. Hey, they’re comfortable, too.

Scoring Award: Macro Grip
Designing a grip to help golfers make putts is always a good idea. In the case of the Macro Grip, it was a really good idea. By using a unique flat, paddle shape, the Macro Grip eliminates unwanted wrist cock and wiggle—a common cause for the yips.


Hip to be Square Award: Callaway FT-i Driver
Not many players on Tour have switched to square-headed drivers, but with Ernie Els putting the FT-i in play, it’s only a matter of time. Designed with a cube shape that maximized the clubs inherent MOI, the FT-i has proven itself to be a long and straight bomber.

Game Improvement Award: Ping iWedge
Not to be confused with Apple’s iPods, the iWedge from PING was a hit this year thanks to its homage to the original PING Eye 2 wedge. The concave sole makes it versatile and the multi-level cavity lowers the CG while retaining a solid, crisp feel. With six lofts available and PING’s custom fitting available, there’s an iWedge for everyone.
