I have some new tees to test when the snow melts. The snow is melting so that’s good news. Come on global warming!

PerfecTee

These tees are from a new golf company called HoleOut. HoleOut is debuting a ton of new products, many which I’ll be covering. The tee is called PerfecTee.

PerfecTee – The front is to the right

PerfecTee is not symmetrical on the crown. The tee is set up in a specific alignment so as to optimize the tee’s resistance, or lack thereof.

Tees by rule cannot “increase” distance artificially. The only way they can help with distance (or spin for that matter) is by having the least amount of resistance possible. The “front” of the tee in the PerfecTee is open and will produce little, if any resistance.

What will this equate to on the golf course? I will post my findings as soon as I’ve had the opportunity to test the PerfecTee on the course.


Swing Boss Shows Golfers Face Impact Location

You can’t swing like a boss if you miss the sweet spot.  That we all know.  There are many ways to determine the impact point on a club like impact tape, putting baby powder on the clubface, and all sorts of others.  Swing Boss takes the impact zone to a whole new visual level.

The Swing Boss golf accessory/golf training aid shows you exactly where the ball hits the clubface because the ball stays on the clubface!  The system utilizes mushy golf balls with velcro on them, velcro club-face tape, and a small practice mat with rubber tee.

There are varying sizes in the club face velcro and varying tee sizes so the golfer can use multiple club types.

In The Box

  • 1 x Grass Matt
  • 2 x Balls
  • 3 x Tee’s, S, M & L
  • 3 x Iron Velcro Pads
  • 3 x Driver Velcro Pads

$36 Investment

Off-center shots are unpredictable in distance and accuracy. Hitting the center of the club-face is huge. The player’s distance will be maximized and consistent. The control the golfer has will be optimized.

For $36 a golfer will get very important feedback.

My Own Game

Before last season I complained to my regular golf buddy who I’d played thousands of rounds with. “I keep hitting it on the toe.” I could see the marks on the clubface. He said, “Duh! Move closer to the ball.” So I setup with the ball the same amount closer to me that the off-center hit was toward the toe. BINGO. Huge improvement. I started hitting some of the longest drives EVER.

Knowing how to adjust one’s swing to get the impact on the swing spot is extremely important. Once you start hitting the sweet spot you are the boss, the Swing Boss.


First Look: Marc Pro Electrical Muscle Stimulation Machine

As of my last birthday I’m now qualified for the local “senior” 8-man team.  That means I’m often dealing with aches, pains, and muscle fatigue. I’m intrigued by the Marc Pro Electrical Muscle Stimulation Machine.  I hope to use it to help build up muscle strength in a couple of particular areas which are problematic for me, the lower back and my arms/elbows where I get golfer’s elbow.

This machine looks like a tens unit, but the application is totally different. A tens unit is used to treat muscle spasms and stiffness. This unit is NOT used as a treatment for muscle issues. Rather, it is a device which helps build up muscle strength by stimulating in a very focused manner.

The Marc Pro muscle conditioning device creates unique, strong, but completely non-fatiguing muscle contractions that set off a cascading series of physiologic events. We call this a Muscle Activated Recovery Cascade, or “MARC®” for short.

While sitting here writing golf blog posts or programming custom code for my websites I plan on having the Marc Pro on the lower back and probably my forearms, to help them build up a little more strength.

The Marc Pro stimulates muscles to help improve or facilitate muscle performance. Many athletes use Marc Pro, and enjoy the benefits of enhanced recovery in a wide variety of sports ranging from golf, to cross-fit, to running. It has been cited as helping many golfers improve their golf game and recovery.

This is a new concept and I’ll by trying this out for a bit, and posting my results and a full review later.

I need more putters… so I can put all of these grips on them! I just got a batch of samples in from TourMark.  These are the exact type of feel I love, tacky and with some softness to them.  Check them out:

There’s a Scotland themed one too. I neeeeeed that one. I hope to test some of these when the snow melts this spring. I may give a few out to some pals to test too. I can’t change putter grips that often. As much as I want to try them all I don’t want to muck the one part of my game up that is good, my putting.
