2022 Isuzu MU-X LS-T v Ford Everest Sport comparison

Holidaying here this year? These two go-anywhere large off-road SUVs have you covered. But does the older Ford Everest still stack up against newer competition from the Isuzu MU-X?

In the wake of coronavirus and the toll it’s taken on our local economy, the government is telling Aussies to holiday here this year.

It’s a well-intentioned sentiment, but it’s actually one that Australians are embracing all on their own. Large off-road SUVs are favoured because they are the every car that can cover all bases. They provide transport for up to seven people, ferry you to work and back in comfort, head off the beaten track, tow the boat, and still make it back in time for the afternoon school run.

That breadth of ability is hot property as families look for the one car that can do it all.

AUGUSTA — Mike Yeaton first saw hatchet throwing on TV and thought it was kind of cool.

“When we actually went and did it, I decided it was kind of neat,” Yeaton said. “It’s a different sport.”

And now, no later than the beginning of May, Yeaton, 46, and partner Mary Young, 41, are bringing their own brand of hatchet throwing to Augusta via Hatchet House, which is slated to open in the Marketplace at Augusta.

The couple spent Monday in their space, setting up point-of-purchase equipment and having a router installed. Getting city approval for their liquor license, setting up their website and social media accounts, and preparing their merchandise are among

Equipment insiders remember Golfweek’s James Achenbach

Folding my 6-foot, 4-inch frame into the passenger seat of James Achenbach’s tiny purple Pontiac Solstice convertible was almost impossible, as was reading the GPS screen after it flew off the dashboard and rolled under my feet as he made a sharp turn off International Drive in Orlando. After a few minutes in the car with the godfather of golf equipment writers, I was ready to hide under the seat, too. 

We got to Orange County National Golf Center & Lodge safely that morning for the 2014 PGA Merchandise Show’s Demo Day, and we made it back safely that night after Jim and I walked around the massive circular driving range. Since 1975 Jim had been a Golfweek columnist – and for many of those decades he was the magazine’s equipment editor – and at every booth, all of them, people came out to shake Jim’s hand, chat and show
