Carnahan Wedges

This has been a fun and productive review for me.  I’ve had the same wedges, great ones, in my bag for over five years.  It was quite hard to take the old ones out and adjust to the new feel and look of my C. Carnahan Wedges.  I’m happy to say I’m dialing them in more and more every time I play or practice.

About C. Carnahan

C. (Chris) Carnahan is an Oregon based maker of what they call “boutique” golf clubs, found primarily in golf shops.  When I first heard the description I wasn’t sure what it was supposed to mean.  It could either mean they’re really awesome but uncommon.  It could mean that they’re just an unknown trying to sound good.  I’ll go with awesome and uncommon.  Boutique to them means specialized, high quality and not mass produced.

Design / Construction

Carnahan Wedges are like many great and simple things on this planet: eggs, circles, Google, Apple products.  Carnahan wedges are simple in design and function yet elegant, effective and easy to use.

The Carnahan wedges are a classic wedge design.  No funny markings, designs, cavities, removable faces, adjustable heads, movable weights or clowns which pop out of them and blow up balloons into funny shapes.

Frogger HOP! Green Repair Tool

If I had the job of reinventing the wheel, there’s one guy on this planet I’d hire to do the gig. That would be Jeremiah from Frogger Golf.  Jeremiah seems to know what it takes to make an every day product better, and has the guts to go and and make the darn thing.  After all, Frogger didn’t invent the club brush, but their BrushPro is the best. They didn’t invent the golf towel, but their Amphibian Towel is the best

Frogger HOP! Green Repair Tool

So why not reinvent the most used gadget in golf, or at least what should be the most used, the green repair tool?

How does Frogger reinvent the wheel make a green repair tool better?

The Caddie Who Won The MastersThe next read in my gigantic list of golf books is by the golf author John Coyne, who previously penned the book The Caddie Who Played with Hickory.

Coyne’s new book is called The Caddie Who Won The Masters.  This is the story which Bobby Jones would have loved, that of an amateur who managed to win the best golf tournament on this planet.

Hard to write a 2000 word review about a pair of golf shorts.  Wait.  If a picture is worth a thousand words, then I can post two pictures of my super cool Loudmouth Golf Hot Dog shorts.  Boom! 2000 words plus…

I get some funny looks and comments by people when I’m sporting my Hot Dogs around the golf course, grocery store or at the Diary of Ann Frank play the other day.

“Nice shorts,” they say.

Me, “you have to have the body for them.”

My uncle, “Where does the battery pack go for those shorts?”

My daughter, “dad you look like you work at Hot Dog On A Stick.”

Tattoo Golf Switch Blade Divot Tool

Tattoo GolfI doubt they’d let me on an airplane with this thing.  The latest divot tool I have in play is the Tattoo Golf Switch Blade.

Construction

This is not a light piece.  The unit is thick and made of stainless steel.  So if you want a wimpy little thin divot tool in your pocket, perhaps this one isn’t for you.  But if you like a solid, well built product then read on.

When the switch blade is concealed, the tool is about two inches long and about 3/4 wide.  Pressing the button you can see left of the skull in the image below releases the thick and strong blade which is great for fixing all the ball marks you can find, like I do.
