deWiz golf review: can wearable golf trainer make you better?

//

Sigmund Freud once claimed all human behaviour is governed by our desire to move towards pleasure and away from pain and now the guys at deWiz believe that principle can improve your golf swing. When I was told I should try the deWiz golf watch, which delivers electric pulses or – whisper it – small electric shocks when your swing goes awry, I’ll be honest I was a little apprehensive. But as golfers we’re no strangers to subjecting ourselves to a little pain on the course. All joking aside, the thing that interested me most about the deWiz golf watch…

Islay: magic Machrie a place to rest and be thankful

/

Our adventure to the Inner Hebrides had to begin by road and involve taking to the water. Like real travellers. In my mind, it was the only way to prepare ourselves for our time on Islay. Yes, you can board a tiny flight from Glasgow and be preparing yourself to land just almost as soon as you’ve taken off (flight time is 45 minutes), you might even witness the dramatic coastline of the West of Scotland from the air (if you get a window seat). But you’ll miss breathing in the North Atlantic air, being enveloped by the mountains and…
