One of my favorite movies of all time is The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly with Clint Eastwood. That’s also the name of a fun casino chip golf game.
Good Bad Ugly Chips
Golf Game by GolfPokerChipGame.com - click image to visit their site
The game comes with 12 casino style chips, each with a golf scenario on it like birdie, par, sand, OB etc. Six of the 12 are “good” and six are “bad.” The good chips are green and the bad are black.
As an occurrence, like say a sandy par happens, that player gets the chip. At the end of the round the person with the most green chips wins. In my group we assign $1 to each chip.
I’ve been doing a lot of personal research for my review of the FootJoy Layering System, at locations on and off the golf course. I’ve used the individual garments of the system on their own, as well as combining any two of the three and all three together on and off the course.
Layering System Concept
“Dress in layers” is a quote you always hear as advice when trying to keep warm. The FJ Layering System is a complete set of garments which are used for every possible layer. The three primary layers are the base layer, mid layer and outer layer. I’ll describe each a bit below, as well as my experience with them.

Having worked in the audio world, owning and running a recording studio for 25 years, made this product name funny to me. Whenever bands sucked, vocal parts were out of tune or drums were off in their timing, we’d always say “we’ll fix it in the mix.”
Now that I have that almost completely unrelated comment done, Fix With Mix by Starting Time Golf is a golf accessory which some golf purists my dig, so to speak. It is a portable divot mix carrier which you take with you and use to fill divots. There’s a hook on the side which allows you to attach the unit to your golf bag. The unit will also perfectly fit in a drink holder of an electric golf cart, pull cart or push cart.
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.
