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.
This drill helps alignment and downard striking of the ball. Click image for more views.
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.

Wow this is my 2nd golf book review in one day. I’m on fire. Granted, this book is less than 10 pages long but who is counting?
I don’t plum bob on the putting green. Never have. But I have buddies who do. I’ve always worried that I’m not hanging the putter shaft perfectly vertical and that I’ll get a worse read as a result. Now that I know more about it, I may give it a try.
For those who do plum bob and want to improve, or those who want to learn how to plum bob on the greens, here’s a book for you. Plum Bob Correctly is a tiny reference book by Jack Geers. This short and easy to read book is small enough to fit in your pocket or your golf bag and goes through the how and why of plum bobbing putts.
If you don’t plumb bob and you miss read putts often, give this a shot. You might make more putts and lower your scores.
