Remember on the Hank Haney Project show where he had Rush Limbaugh hitting shots and trying not to hit the plastic behind the ball? That’s one of the applications for the $49 Compression Board.

Full Shots & Chips
The U shaped compression board is a tool to help prevent fat shots, working on striking down on the ball, and aligning properly. There are measurements on the forks to aid in deciding where to place the ball based on level. The levels go from 6-pro.
I found the unit was more helpful for my chipping, since it is so bad. It really helped me get the club on the ball without hitting behind it.

The Fat Free Golf Swing Trainer is a what is also referred to as a compression board. There are a couple of useful drills built into this unit’s functionality.
Green Line & Penny
This setup involves placing a penny in the unit between the ball mount and the target. The green line is aligned with the target line and provides a visual aid for swing plane and club face alignment.

Here’s a Brush Caddy. This is a golf accessory which can help out mainly on the practice range. The Brush Caddy mounts right into the ground at the range, and gives you a mini club cleaning station. You can hit shots and clean your club faces without even having to move from your range spot.

Here’s a neat little golf accessory called Ready Caddy. Ready Caddy is a little box which mounts onto electric golf cart frames and holds small items like keys, cell phones, golf lasers, sharpies, golf GPS devices, sleeves of balls and possibly most importantly cigars.
The $19.95 Ready Caddy comes in a storage bag and also includes three varying sizes of clamp to accommodate different sized cart frames.
The unit is easy to install and easy to remove.
I’m working in conjunction with my good pals at Pukka Headwear to make the first edition Hooked On Golf Blog / The Golf Space golf hats! These will be great for giveaways, contests, fantasy golf etc.
I’ve just gone through the design and ordering process with my friends at Pukka, working on the customization of the hats and embroidery options. It was a great experience. Below is the final draft of the hats.

For those of you who are buyers for golf courses or corporations who want your branding on golf hats, I strongly recommend Pukka for your needs. Of course I haven’t seen the final product yet, but having seen Pukka’s previous work at my local courses and at the PGA Show, I’m sure I won’t be disappointed.
Coming next month.
