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.

Swing_Boss_01

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 – IJP Design Tour Tech Golf Pants

Wardrobe upgrade alert: I’m happy to report that I’ll be reviewing some apparel items from Ian James Poulter (IJP) Design.  First on the list is this pair of golf pants (trousers for those of you in the U.K.).  These are the Tour Tech model.

I just tried these fine looking trousers on and was very happy to find that they’re quite adjustable via buttons and velcro on the sides.  This means the fit can be adjusted perfectly for the golfer, especially ones with waists which don’t seem to align with the standard sizes found on many brands, like me.  The fit is great and the fabric feels nice as well.

Hopefully the snow will melt soon and I can get to testing these beauties.  I also have a couple of other IJP Design items to go with these and I’ll be posting those soon.  Stay tuned.

RELIEFOR – Topical Analgesic for Golf’s Aches and Pains

Mornings are quite painful for me these days. After the initial pain of looking in the mirror wears off, I notice some back stiffness as well.

Reliefor

Lately I’ve been hitting the back and the golfer’s elbow with Reliefor.  Reliefor is a topical ointment which provides temporary relief from arthritis, muscle strains, bruises, sprains, aches, joint discomfort.

Ingredients

Reliefor utilizes five ingredients to help reduce or relieve minor aches and pains: menthol, aloe, Boswellia, vitamin E, MSM (methylsulfonylmethane).

Menthol: analgesic, pain reliving properties.

Aloe: natural skin-soothing agent.

Boswellia: an herbal extract which helps reduce swelling.

Vitamin E: protects cells against damage.

Methylsulfonylmethane: (the longest word ever written on this golf blog) a remedy for chronic pain, like arthritis.

On and Off The Course

I need all the help I can get, especially with the bad back.  This topical cream can help take the edge of some of the aches and pains I experience on the course or at the computer writing awesome blog posts.

One great feature for the golf game is that this topical analgesic dries and does not leave the hands or the treatment area greasy or slippery.  Nothing worse than treating your back with some pain relieving gel, then having your $500 driver slip out of your hands and knock the windshield of a car in the parking lot.  Naturally the only Bentley in town…

Conclusion

While Reliefor can’t relieve me of the pain of looking in the mirror every morning, it can help loosen up the aches and pains that can make golf even more difficult.


The Footwedge is REAL

My short game is so bad I’ll try anything (except practice of course). I think I may have finally found my gamer wedge, my go-to club. Say hello to the FootWedge!
Foot_Wedge_02
You thought the FootWedge was just an imaginary club, didn’t you? Or perhaps you thought it was the situation where the cheater in your group is under a tree with an impossible lie and when nobody’s looking he kicks it out to a perfect position?

This is the real deal people. Not only is this a fine looking wedge, it doubles as a bottle opener.
Foot_Wedge_06

If only there was a cigar cutter and roach clip in there too somewhere.  There might be.  I’m still looking.

I’ve just gotten this club in and will be testing it out on a real-deal golf course. I’ve already tested the bottle opener. The club did a fantastic job with a frosty Corona.

Foot_Wedge_04

Stay tuned for my full review soon.

If you can’t wait to get one of these you can pick one up at footwedgepro.com. Yes, this is the “pro” model.
