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!
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.
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.
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.
Use No-Chipping Sign as Target When Practicing Chipping
While at the practice putting green last week I found a golfer there practicing his chipping. After watching him for a few minutes I realized the brilliance of what he was doing. He was using the “no chipping” sign as part of his chipping practice. He positioned his landing spot to be just over the no-chipping sign, and he would try to chip in such a way that the ball would land just over it, then release nicely to the hole.
I highly recommend using the no-chipping sign as a golf training aid when working on chipping. I’ve used the no-chipping sign for my short game drills ever since and I’ve noticed quite an improvement in my short game stats.
Click to buy book…
Just what the doctor ordered, a short game book. Somehow I managed to finish the 2014 season with a 1.5 handicap and a save percentage of somewhere between 25-30%. Saves meaning I missed hitting the green in regulation and managed to get up-and-down for par or better. In other words, if I had a short game I could be a hell of an amateur golfer.
My next read (after Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus: The Classic Guide to Understanding the Opposite Sex
haha) will be Your Short Game Solution: Mastering the Finesse Game from 120 Yards and In by James Sieckmann.
I’ve thumbed through and picked a few random pages to check out quickly and I can already tell the depth and detail of this book is great. In randomly picking a couple of pages I’ve already learned some valuable short game tips and information.
I’m excited to dive into this one. Full review soon. Let’s see what happens in 2015.
