Bionic Technologies

Just in time for the holidays, ladies can add another benefit to wearing the highly-acclaimed Bionic Golf Gloves – fashion! New Lycra color schemes including light blue, pink and champagne have joined the Ladies ’ Bionic Glove line-up, in addition to the all white glove. There is also a special pink golf glove available that features a white palm and the breast cancer ribbon on the index finger. A portion of the proceeds from sales of the pink glove will support breast cancer research, education and awareness. The new Bionic golf glove for women is designed to fit ladies hands, rather than being just smaller versions of men ’s gloves. The benefits of wearing patented, high-tech Bionic Gloves are widely known – unsurpassed comfort, fit and performance. They are unlike any gloves on the market because they incorporate the science of anatomy and ergonomics. Created by a leading orthopedic hand surgeon, Bionic Gloves feature strategically-placed pads to reduce the pressure and friction caused by gripping a golf club, improving both comfort and grip strength – especially for golfers with arthritis. In fact, Bionic Gloves were the first and only gloves to earn the Arthritis Foundation ’s Ease-of-Use Commendation.

Scrample Scoop

Have you ever played in a golf tournament and yourself in the golf cart darting left and right, hither and yon, starting and stopping to scoop up the other 3 balls from your favorite foursome. Well all of us at Florida Golf Central have, and it is a pain in the back, literally, to lean out of the cart and try to whisk away the ball as your crazy partner keeps driving. "Did you get it?" is the question by the time your 50 yards away and a frightening U-turn is suddenly being negotiated. Well, we've found the tool to save time, save that soar back and secure the ball with one quick swoosh. It is called the Scramble Scoop, and when you know you are in a golf match where you will be playing the better of the four drives, approach shots and sometimes a multitude of others, NEVER leave home without it. The Scramble Scoop should be your 15th club! In fact it is the most used of any in the bag when you are playing with duffers and hackers from all walks of liffe to raise some money for a worthy cause. So if you know somebody who plays in fundraisers like us at FGCM, this is the perfect gift. The Scramble Sccop is available at 800-590-8484.
