 True linkswear’s Durable Lux G Golf Shoe

The Lux G was designed with style and performance in mind as the perfect Father’s Day gift. The Tour-level model includes a multi-material composition that ensures comfort, durability, and waterproofing. True includes a two-year warranty on every Lux G shoe. The sole’s mountaineering-grade rubber and Tour-level tread system ensure stability and trust in every swing.

“The Lux G is built to own the water, sand, dirt  pretty much anything else Mother Nature throws at you. Our entirely new upper is designed to remain comfortable, flexible, and most importantly  easy to clean while keeping your feet feeling fresh the entire round,” said True co-founder and CEO Jason Moore.

Taking shoe technology to the next level of style and function, True improved its signature Neoprene easy-on collar for a secure, comfortable sock-fit at the top. Designers took great care in implementing comfort in every level of the shoe. The Wanderlux midsole provides a supportive yet cushioned ride. A padded heel lock system  to ensure stability throughout the swing  and an Achilles heel pad prevents rubbing or any bothersome friction. An antimicrobial EVA comfort insole is essential for long walks on the course.

Lux G models are available in men’s and women’s, with an MSRP $175. Colors Available: Black, Grey, White, women’s exclusive Soft Rose. For more information on TRUE and its new products, visit

ScanMyGolfBall announces its revolutionary mobile app compatible with iOS and Android devices that can quickly scan and identify the proper golf ball for anyone’s game. Rather than collecting personal shot data about a golfer, the brand-agnostic app collects golf swing information through a series of interactive questions and then matches the golfer to a ball that best fits their game.

“It’s a convenient and easy-to-use ball fitting tool,” said app and company founder Tim Chase, who serves as CEO of SMGB Technologies in Melbourne, Fla. “Based on those questions, the app will recommend the best ball for you, or a series of balls that are a good fit. You can also scan any golf ball through your phone’s camera, and the app will tell you how well that ball fits you based on the profile you’ve created.”

The ScanMyGolfBall app questions a golfer about swing speed, flight path tendencies, general trajectory, short-game spin, and more. Based on those answers, the app builds a profile and ultimately recommends specific golf ball models. Plus, golfers can scan any ball to see instantly how well that model fits their game.

The ScanMyGolfBall app, which already has a database of more than 500 ball models, both new and old, goes beyond simple identification. It scans and processes ball cover type, layer count, compression, spin rate, feel, and dimple patterns. The app will soon be able to analyze and assess golf ball damage and determine its fitness for use through a three-image scanning process.

No sign-in or personal information is required. Just launch the app, scan your ball, and get instant results. Visit for further details and to download the app. There isn’t an easier Father’s Day gift.
