Golf gadgets to improve your game

It's golf season in Arizona! These days, golfers are bringing more than just their clubs to the links. Technology has made it possible for players to analyze their shots from tee to putt. 

Quintero Golf Club in Peoria is one of Arizona's most challenging courses. Their golf expert is here with some of his favorite golf tools to improve your game right now. These modern tools were provided by the PGA Superstore in Scottsdale.

Laser Range Finder:
On a course with elevated tees, a good range finder is essential to getting an accurate distance reading. 
Don't rely on your smart phone GPS that will simply measure Point A to Point B. 
Range finders compensates for elevation to give you the most accurate distance to the hole. 

Golf Course Apps: 
Most major courses now have apps that give you insights into each hole, keep track of your score, as well as other amenities. 
Quintero's app, for example offers fly over images.
These apps are easy to download from Google Play or the Apple Store and let you plan your attack before you even set up your first tee.

Putter Wheel: 
Sometimes a tech tool doesn't have to be complicated. When playing on bent grass greens, for example, the ability to roll the ball correctly is critical. 
The Putter Wheel is one of the best training aids Quintero experts have seen for improving putting. 
The "wheel" is actually a pseudo ball designed to wobble if not hit correctly. It gives the golfer immediate feedback on the stroke and with training a practice helps the person develop their eye and putting form. 
Even better it costs less than $50.

Dave the Garden Guy: First fertilization of the year 

"It's getting to be that time of year to start thinking about fertilizing your trees, roses, vegetables and other plants around your yard. There are a few things you should keep in mind when fertilizing with inorganic fertilizers. Synthetic fertilizers typically cause quick, succulent growth that is more susceptible to disease and insect damage, and contaminate your ground water supplies. You also eliminate a lot of beneficial organisms in the soil that help plants manufacture food, which helps your plants and lawn grow. Good compost not only fertilizes, but also reduces water consumption and disease. I top-dress my rose beds, vegetable garden and lawn with compost, gradually reducing any extra fertilizer needed during the year. Applying 2-4 inches of compost around your shrubs and trees but do not let the compost come in contact with the trunks. Be sure to spread the compost out of the drip line of the plant or tree. Remember you are feeding the soil not the plant. By using organic fertilizer, you are building up disease resistance, decreasing the amount of water needed and fertilizing your garden with natural products that don't harm the environment."

Dow makes history hitting 20,000 for the first time ever

Chief Investment Officer for Arizona Bank and Trust, Nancy Tengler, forecasts the future of our economy.

After weeks of close calls, the Dow made history on Wednesday by blowing past that key level for the first time ever.
The historic milestone leaves the Dow up a stunning 1,667 points since President Donald Trump's victory in November. The achievement is evidence of how optimistic investors have become about the prospects for the U.S. economy.
The stock market has given him this extraordinary vote of approval. Happy days are here again," said Ed Yardeni, president of Yardeni Research.
Wall Street is clearly betting that Trump's plans to slash taxes, ramp up infrastructure spending and cut regulation will make the American economy grow faster. If that happens, without any disruptions to global trade, it could propel corporate profits, the lifeblood of stock prices.
