You know those suction cups which go on the end of a putter or golf club which are used to pick up the ball out of the hole? With my bad back I may be a few short years of using one, to save myself having to bend down.

In that same vein there’s a golf accessory called Magnecaddy which helps golfers avoid bending down to pick up golf clubs. Magnecaddy is a very powerful magnet which screws onto the end of a golf club. The magnet is strong enough to pick up an iron or wedge, probably several. In the photo below I’m picking up a heavy old Hogan 56 degree wedge from a cart path… Don’t ask me about the cart path part.

No problem picking up a heavy Hogan wedge

In addition to the strong magnet, there is an included ball marker:

Magnecaddy is a bitt of an off-the-wall golf gadget which I would not imagine many serious or “tour” players would use. But it could be a good golf gift for a senior golfer, or one like me with a bad back.

Here’s a nice golf gift for Christmas, birthday, or other occasions. Bill Kroen’s Golf Tip-a-Day 2015 Calendar is a daily rip-away calendar which gives a golfer daily doses of golf advice and game-improving information.

Bill Kroen’s Golf Tip-A-Day

It is tough to learn many golf tips at a time.  One at a time per day will be absorbed into the golfer’s brain and retained at a much higher rate.

Top: The Daily Extra

As a bonus, the backside of each tip has another interesting nugget of information called the “daily extra,” not necessarily related to golf.

Potty Putter Review

Those of you who have followed this web site know that I take my golf product reviews seriously.  I don’t just swing a club three times and write a two paragraph review about it.  I play it for weeks and dozens of rounds.  I don’t just wear a pair of golf shoes two times and write an uninformed review about them.  I wear them for 30-40 rounds.  I pride myself in the time I spend and the attention to detail I take when reviewing golf products and my reviews can be several thousand words.  I take pride in the fact that 99% of the product photos here are original, and not provided to me or taken from some other web site.

This review is perhaps one I’ve spent the most time on; testing, evaluating, pondering, experimenting, tweaking, pushing the limits.   This product is one I tested every day for months straight, usually in the morning.  I evaluated this product in every type of condition the environment presented.  Sometimes I tested it out in the evening or even a few times per day.  Other times I may have I tested it out after having some very hot Mexican food the day before or perhaps those times when I’d had some chicken the day before which wasn’t quite fresh.

Why is my putting so good this season?

Gentleman’s Vice

GentlemansViceWith Father’s Day coming up next month, and the festivities surrounding my pending wedding (and all the cigars which will be involved), I thought it would be a good time to do a piece on a very cool accessory called the Gentleman’s Vice.

The Gentleman’s Vice is a cigar/golf accessory which has many functions:

First it is a dual action cigar cutter.  You push a button and the double guillotine blades extend out. Put the stogey in the opening and close the guillotine for a perfect cut.

A 2nd button/slider extends a divot tool. A gentleman always fixes his ball mark and a few others.

After fixing a few ball marks, the player/gentleman marks his ball and pending birdie putt with a customizable ball marker.

Nothing ruins a fine cigar quicker than goose dung. While hitting shots the U-shaped top of the unit can hold a cigar to keep it off of the wet grass, keep it out of the chemically treated grass or most importantly, keep it away from goose dung. The unit also can serve as a club prop to keep the grips from contacting the wet grass and becoming slippery.

The Gentleman’s Vice has a mounting clip which allows mounting of the unit on your belt or your pocket for easy access.


The Gentleman’s Vice comes in five colors: Silver (pictured), copper, gold, black and gray.


Each GV comes with a nice carrying case, pictured left. The case can easily attach to a golf bag.


I have a gallery of images set up. Check out the Gentleman’s Vice Image Gallery.


I’ve used my Gentleman’s Vice many dozens of times and it would make a great Father’s Day golf gift. It is a perfect combination of a fun golf gadget and real life useful functionality. The thing is indestructible too, which is why it has a lifetime warranty. The Gentleman’s Vice is built like a Russian tank, only it gets much better gas mileage.

Golfer’s Christmas List

I’ve gotten a bunch of emails from golf widows asking me what I suggest they buy their golfer husbands for Christmas. So here is a short list of cool items, ranging from $5.99 to $85. The last item on the list is for those husbands to buy their golf widows…

Frogger Brush Pro – Under $20

Perhaps the best and most useful golf gadget or accessory I can think of, and not too high of a price, is the Frogger Brush Pro. I’ve been using Brush Pro’s since I first reviewed them back on May 17, 2007. I use my Brush Pro to clean my grooves before every shot and make sure I put the right spin on the ball.

Frogger Amphibian Ball Towel – $11.95

The 2nd best accessory I can think of (and Frogger has no idea I’m posting these and isn’t paying me to post these by the way) is the Frogger Amphibian Ball Towel. This towel has an inner (wet) side and outer (dry side) and fits easily in a pant pocket. When you mark your ball on the green and realize you have a mud ball, the pocket towel is handy and does a great job cleaning that ball up so you can sink winning putts.

Sumi-g Golf Belts – $85

Sumi-g is a new company I’ve gotten to be great friends with. Their belts are the COOLEST out there. I’ve already reviewed the Stymie and Dormy belts.

Available here.

SUMI-G Head Covers – $28-$38

SUMI-G head covers are very cool. They employ a rigid exoskeleton, mechanical enclosure, and can be installed and removed with one hand and without bending over to pick them up.

Available here.

Fooking Long Golf Balls – $24.99

Fooking Long Golf Balls

Fooking Long Golf balls are just that, FOOKING LONG. They’re also illegal.

Available here.

Bridgestone B330-RX Golf Balls – About $45

Fooking Long Golf Balls

My vote for the best new golf ball of 2009 is hands down the Bridgestone B330-RX. This ball is long (legally long), high performance and durable. This ball is very long for slower swing speeds of amateurs.

Available at any golf shop.

Golf Dotz – $5.99

Fooking Long Golf Balls

A very inexpensive and FUN item is GolfDotz. They’re transfers which bond to the ball and have many cool shapes and designs, like my favorite, the skull and bones.

Available here.

MySack Accessory Bag – $11.99

Fooking Long Golf Balls

A very funny golf gift, MySack is a golf accessory bag with a “unique” shape. It may look funny, but MySack is actually quite useful and functional!

Available here.

Annika Perfume – $59-79

Fooking Long Golf Balls

Annika perfume smells good.
