FASHION REVOLUTION DAY


I do find it sad but not surprising that no major golf tour such as the PGA, LPGA or LET are supporting Fashion Revolution Day. I don't know of any golf professional who is supporting it either, which is also very sad. The treatment of textile workers who make our sport clothes will hopefully become more important to all of us. You will see picture after picture of golf stars wearing their apparel. On this day, golf magazines and golf channels should be featuring images of golfers wearing their shirts inside out and asking 'who made our clothes?'
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO


KATE MIDDLETON THE DUCHESS


If Kate Middleton (Duchess of Cambridge) wears a dress it sells out within hours.

A year on from Rana Plaza where 1,133 garment workers died.

Do we need to care more about the people who make our clothes and a little less about the people who wear them?

EARTH DAY 2014


What should the golf industry be doing on earth day 2014?

Show how golf courses awarded major championships are reducing their water and pesticide usage?

Devise rule changes to encourage the use of environmentally friendly materials for golf equipment and apparel?

Encourage 'cradle to grave' design?
Support compost toilets and energy generation for club houses and courses?
ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

TW SUPPORTERS


There are many supporters of TW, which is great. We hope many more of you will become fans.
Obviously we mean for Textile Workers (TW). Here's our shirt to support the TW accord, which will hopefully bring better working conditions. Wear with pride.

SLOTTED SWEPT AEROFOIL FOR A GOLF CLUB HEAD


What are Golf Refugees working on? Apart from our spiral golf ball we are currently developing a ‘composite aero pack’ for a driver club head. Our reasoning;

You've just bought a new driver and it has the latest adjustability and features to slide little weights around. But what happens to your old driver? Is it just left in the garage to gather dust? Golf Refugees believe you could transform the aerodynamic performance of your old driver by simply fixing our ‘aero pack’. Think of it as adding performance parts to your car. Please refer to our rough sketch.

The GR aero pack consists of a ‘slotted swept aerofoil hosel’, which surrounds the bottom part of the golf shaft where it meets the crown of the club head. Aero details include stabilising vanes situated at each slot. There is also an additional spoiler which attaches to the bottom of the aerofoil and projects across the front of the club head and down onto the toe side, just aft of the club face.

Aero pack can be made from aluminium, 3D printed thermoplastic or carbon fibre.

You never know with the aero pack attached to your old driver it may out perform the new driver.

Please let us know your thoughts about the idea of add-on performance parts for golf clubs.
