   Unbelievable Comfort and Game Improvement Golf Shoes – BITE Golf

By: Dr. Barry Lotz

Based on Bite’s philosophy that Golf is a sport that involves all elements – athleticism, concentration, practice, competition, cheerleaders and the fact that there have been no significant changes to golf shoes since 1982, Bite has decided that the saddle shoe (designed circa 1800) needs to get a life. And so it should as we’ve seen golf evolve into a more powerful, technological game, with 400-yard drives and space age materials, so why not shoes as well? The market place is definitely there especially with the Tiger effect so predominant at this point in time.

Think about this factoid: walk into your favorite golf store and observe the hundreds of different clubs available to choose from, yet visit their shoe department and you get to pick between a brown saddle and a black saddle. Bland and lame – Why walk five miles in grass and mud in shoes that were designed for the boardroom?

More time is spent using one single piece of golf equipment than any other the golf shoe. This is the one item of equipment that has more complaints than any other, yet it is also the least updated piece of golf equipment.

The Bite Golf Shoe Company’s roots began in China where one of the founders, Dale Bathum was working in the shoe industry. Dale spent every spare moment golfing. A shoe guy himself, when it was time to buy golf shoes, Dale was unimpressed by the choices, and that’s when the gears started to turn. After working with almost every brand of shoe, Dale felt the time was right to introduce the golf world into the 1900’s. Kevin Xiao joined Dale in early 1995 to develop designs and plans for Bite, and after a year of planning, the time was right. In early 1996, Dale brought Heidi Bathum in to take care of all the accounting and operations, and Bite was ready to take over the world.

In California, Bite grew rapidly to 800 accounts with 2.4 million in sales, with eight employees working out of Dale’s apartment in San Rafael. A decision was made to move Bite back to Dale’s home state of Washington, and set up operations in Redmond. Bite expanded the shoe line to include women’s, children’s and also an apparel line. Soon they reached 2000 accounts worldwide. Their products became widely accepted for style, quality, customer service and most importantly, comfort.

Today Bite is the 5th largest golf shoe manufacturer, with worldwide distribution, and an almost fanatical cult following among golfers ranging from teenagers to seniors.

Bite is defining a new lifestyle among golfers who don’t believe in taking their shoes off after a round. Spike less outsoles, soft full-grain leathers, and supportive EVA mid soles make Bite shoes the most comfortable shoes you’ll ever put your feet in, for golf or otherwise.

Our testers tried both the “regular” style shoe and the golf sandals. The response to the sandals was nothing short of phenomenal as it relates to comfort. The only negative aspect attached to the sandal was the fact that the “early morning patrols” suffered wet feet but felt that carrying an extra pair of regular shoes was worth the effort.

Bite’s customer service is also outstanding  as of yesteryear when people really cared.

Nexbelt – The Belt with No Holes

Based on technology that has been around for 25+ years, Nexbelt has positioned themselves as the best ratchet belt company in the world. They re-engineered it and made it better – Entrepreneur 101.

I have been wearing the Nexbelt since they were introduced at the PGA Show in Orlando in 2015. I simply cannot live without the belt! Just the ease of adjusting the belt to any position is what makes this belt so great, you never have to worry about finding a hole that usually isn’t there where you need it and trying to seat the pin therein. The belt can be adjusted in quarter-inch increments, rather than one inch found in traditional belts.

The Nebelt Go-In! Golf series, has two sizes which fit (virtually) all and no holes, and is worn on the PGA Tour by Kevin Na. The belts are as high a quality as you can find – one size for those with waists ranging from 28 to 40 inches and another for waists ranging from 38 to 50 inches. The buckle contains a hidden ball marker.

The Go-In! Golf series features a variety of colors (including white), including all types of leather and braids. I highly recommend these belts and to see a full range visit Nexbelt’s web site.  Prices range from $47.99 to $68.99

Having problems with your swing? – Fix your slice! by Johnny Miller

I recently was examining swing sequences of some of the greatest players in history. Knowing that some of these players favored a draw as their standard shot while others preferred a fade, I sought to identify swing features within each group that would explain their respective ball-flight tendencies. Something profound emerged that I think will benefit all golfers, especially those cursed with a wicked slice.

What I found was this: Virtually every accomplished fader of the ball–from Jack Nicklaus to Tiger Woods–displayed a straight left arm at the top of the backswing. Conversely, those who preferred a draw–players like Arnold Palmer and Bobby Jones–maintained a slight bend at the elbow.

This discovery is great news for most slicers, as they tend to do by accident what intentional faders do on purpose. In this article I’ll explain why the dynamic works, and how a simple swing change will make a powerful draw your standard shot.
