The short game is arguably the most important aspect of one’s golf game, and as we know, it can be tricky sometimes. The Square Strike wedge is a club that aims to make it easier to hit cleaner short game shots, and you may be familiar with the club, as it has been seen on Golf Channel among other places.
I had the chance to try out the club which was created out here in the Chicago area, to test and see how it really helps your short game. Immediately, the first thing I noticed was the weight of the club, as it does not have the feathery touch of a traditional wedge.
This is a good thing, as it will help you balance the power of your chips and pitches better. In short, you’ll very rarely over hit your shots, and this is a great way to test your feel around the greens.
Another thing you’ll notice is its unique grip which is skinny in size and has a white line going all the way down the middle of it. This grip design can help with proper hand placement on chip shots, and as we know, it’s easy to overlook how you hold the grip.
Then, we come to the most important, and most intriguing part of the Square Strike wedge; the club head. The club head is shaped like a blocky square, hence the name “Square Strike”. The head is beautiful, and much thicker than traditional wedges and features a lovely green color on the back of the head.
The one part that stands out on the Square Strike’s head is its “machete rail” design on the bottom of it. What this does is, help you swing smoother on impact on chips. This slick feature helps you cut through the blades of grass, and help you hit the ball squarely almost every time.
Having hit some balls with the Square Strike, I must say that I really enjoy it and love how smooth it feels on impact. You don’t even have to hit the ball as hard on chips, as you can essentially use a putting stroke to hit a good shot.
Although the main focus of emphasis for the Square Strike is the short game, it also is a nice club to use for full swings as well. It’s slightly heavy weight makes it a little tougher, but it’s a still a smooth swinging club. However, it is still best used for chipping and pitching.
Overall, the Square Strike wedge is a great weapon of choice in your bag of swords. It’s a fun club to use, it’s uniquely different, and it helps make your golf better, even if it’s just a tiny bit.
Hitting chips and pitches are fun anyway, as they are personally my favorite shots in golf. The Square Strike makes hitting them even more fun.
Chipping contest anyone?

You may be familiar with the brand, Ahead as this is the brand you see a lot at golf tournaments, specifically, events such as the BMW Championship.
Their company is loaded with numerous styles of shirts, jackets, hats, shorts, etc. They also have golf accessories and small golf packages that make for nice Holiday gifts.
I had the opportunity to take a look at four specific pieces of clothing that may be beneficial for your next golf outing. These items include, the Payne Stewart hat, the Ahead fedora, Chatham Fleece jacket and the Montery Stripe Polo.
The fedora – Nothing combines an old school look with modern style as much as a fedora. This timeless classic features a straw material giving it a unique look that also will do a great job of keeping the sun out of your face.
The hat feels plenty comfortable and does a nice job of not making your head feel suffocated like with some hats. The fedora is also light weight which adds to the comfort and will work nicely on those hot sunny days thanks to the long, round brim of the hat.
The Payne Stewart – The Payne Stewart hat was made famous by none other than Stewart himself as he would go on to win three major championships wearing this cap. The first you’ll notice right away is immense comfort.
The fedora has it’s own kind of comfort but the Payne Stewart feels soft, so wearing it is a pleasure, especially when you need it most (Bad hair day perhaps?). The hat feels great whether you’re wearing it backwards or frontwards and goes well with numerous styles of clothing.
One of the best things about the Payne Stewart is that it can be worn during any season. During the summer, it can be worn to protect from the sun while in the winter, it can be worn like a knit, keeping your head worm.
Payne Stewart helped bring classic golf attire back to fruition and the hat will represent this quite well.
Montery Stripe Polo – One of Ahead’s newer shirts, the Montery Stripe Polo features a beautiful silky feeling and has a multi-shaded stripe design on it, giving a unique look to the typical stripe polo. I’ve mentioned the word “comfort” a lot and I’ll say it yet again.
The Montery Stripe Polo is one of the softest, coolest and most comfortable golf polos around. The terrific material of the shirt has a lot to do with it and this short is great for a hot round of golf or if you’re in a hot building.
The professional design on the polo makes it great for any occasion, whether it’s a leisure activity or it’s a business meeting. Some polos may bother you around the neck with their collars but with the softness of the shirt and the collar, there’s no worries about any tightness.
Chatham Fleece Jacket – The Chatham Fleece Jacket features a material soft enough to be a blanket for a good night sleep (If you’re into wearing jackets in bed), it’s that comfortable. It also has the warmth of a coat almost.
It was extremely cold outside here in Chicago the other day, wearing the Chatham Fleece Jacket was light but I stayed plenty warm. That is, for at least a certain amount of time but I was out there for a while and had no issues (If only I was wearing gloves though, ouch).
Even being out there swinging my 9-iron, it felt great and didn’t feel like it was in the way. This is a great jacket if you’re someone who plays golf in the streets or is a driving range warrior and the hood of the jacket keeps you warm as well as any other small jacket around.
Final Verdict – Overall, these pieces from Ahead are “Ahead” of the game and there’s something for every kind of golfer and for every season so there’s nothing stopping you from hitting the course. The gear is customizable as well as you can put a logo on the clothing item(s) you choose which helps make them more personal.
The level of comfort, especially on the Chatham Fleece and the Montery Stripe Polo is very solid and was quite impressed with the feel of them. So, to make a long story short, the golf clothing from Ahead is just flat out awesome.

Momentus Golf is one of the leading golf training brands out there. A while back, I had a chance to try out their signature Power Hitter Driver as well as their indoor driver (It’s a small heavy driver you can swing for indoor use) and both were superb.
This time around, I had the pleasure of trying out their two irons used to help build golf strength and improve iron play. Both of these were so much fun to use and I’ll evaluate both of these clubs here for you.
These two clubs are the Power Hitter Iron and the XL Iron and both are perfect for range practice. Here are some key things I enjoyed from both of them.
Power Hitter Iron – Similar to the awesome Power Hitter Driver, the Power Hitter Iron is a heavy iron that helps improve iron consistency and distance. When I was hitting some shots on the range, I was feeling my muscles work and was getting that sensation (Or pain, whatever you want to call it) you get that tells you that your muscles are building a little.
This iron is about as good of a golf workout tool as any. Who knew that just bashing a bunch of balls on the range would help build strength and burn calories?
Bobby Jones had once said that hitting balls on the driving range is a great way to gain strength and hit further out on the course. Well, the Power Hitter Iron is definitely your friend here and makes for an excellent routine on the range.
One thing I really loved was that after hitting some shots with the Power Hitter Iron, I felt like I had more control of my swing. When I grabbed my wedge, I felt very confident swinging and I was able to hit a few shots close to the pin on the green out on the range.
I felt like I was much more in control with my wedge than before. I didn’t feel the need to take a full swing to hit a decent shot and I was making more solid contact with the ball.
The Power Hitter Iron is certainly a beast and is just a wonderful club when practicing on the range. After all, you use your irons more than any other club and the Power Hitter helps you get in complete control of them.
XL Iron – OK so this is seriously one of the coolest things I’ve seen in the history of ever. The XL Iron is an iron and has weight on it just like the Power Hitter Iron.
However, the “big” difference is the size of the clubhead. It’s freaking gigantic! When they said “XL Iron” they certainly weren’t joking.
It has more than just looks as it is an excellent training tool. The reason that the clubhead is so large is that it helps you on your backswing and follow through with air resistance to help you keep the head square every time you swing.
So when you swing this beauty, you’ll feel the weight of the head during the backswing and this is your feedback in regards to whether your swing is correct or not. You’ll feel the tilt of the head thanks to its large size so you’ll know if you’re going to be too open or close at impact.
Like the Power Hitter Iron, the XL Iron also is great for building strength and is a great club to swing before hitting balls on the range. You may also catch the attention of your fellow golfers as they look at your club with wide eyes and such.
This club really will help develop a more square clubface and that’s one of the most important aspects of a golf swing. We all want to make perfect contact with the ball without shanking or chunking it and having a square face is crucial to pure contact.
And that’s what makes the XL Iron such a powerful tool. Swing it a few times, and your mind will get used to a proper backswing a follow through when going back to your normal clubs.
The XL Iron also is great for your driving game. Although it’s an iron, the size of the head makes it beneficial for all clubs and as mentioned, helps you build those key golf muscles so when you grab your driver and tee it up, your swing speed will likely improve.
The club is short enough for indoor practice as well but make sure you have enough room as well, remember, it has a giant clubhead. But, it’s a great club to throw in your bag and take to the range, or maybe you just want to work on your iron game like I did where I brought a couple of irons and the XL to the range.
Overall, Momentus Golf has once again done an excellent job with helping golfers play better through training. Cool thing is, these are fun ways to get some great exercise while still enjoying the sport you love.
You can visit MomentusGolf.com and you can check out both of these sweet irons for yourself.

I’m sure when you clicked on the article, you probably said “WOAH!”. Aren’t these seriously the coolest grips you’ve ever seen?
Thick and gorgeous, the JumboMax grips are more than just something to look at. You know how you squeeze a skinny grip and your hands start to ache after taking some swings?
Well, with the JumboMax Grips, you’ll never have to worry about aching ever again. They’re thick and soft, so you can squeeze the club better.
This helps you generate more power with your swings. You’ll certainly get more distance off the tee.
The grips are in the wrap style and are made out of rubber. The wrap style will help get your hands around the club in proper gripping position while the rubber feel will help make your hands stick to the club with no worry of slippage.
Are your hands small like mine? No problem, because the JumboMax grips feature three different sizes, based on your glove size.
So, if you wear a small sized glove, then you could go with the small size for example. The other two sizes are medium and large so this helps give you a little variety to choose from.
Some of the big names that use JumboMax grips include Bryson DeChambeau, the NCAA champion who uses clubs with the same length and rocks the old school golf cap and Mike Dobyn who won the 2007 Re/MAX Long Drive Championship. Among others, NBA legend Rick Barry who is arguably the greatest free-throw shooter of all-time, also uses JumboMax grips.
JumboMax’s concept was simple, yet brilliant. Think about a tennis racket for example.
When you hold most rackets, they feel pretty good in your hands right? That’s because of how thick and soft they are and they help generate more powerful shots.
Also another good example is an aluminum baseball bat. The grips on some of them are also thicker, although not quite like a tennis racket but pretty similar.
Heck, even a table tennis racket has a thicker grip (Love me some table tennis! Used to play a little in high school)! So, “why not golf” they thought?
And I think it was a brilliant idea. You’re taking a lot of swings out there on the golf course and the driving range so why should your hands ache or have blisters?
Another thing that makes the JumboMax grips so cool is that you probably don’t even need a glove to use them! I’m someone who loves to wear a glove when taking swings but since these grips are so soft and thick, a glove may not be necessary.
These grips also give you the chance to use the famous ten-finger/baseball grip. Since the grips are so thick, why not wrap all your fingers around it and take a whack?
JumboMax also has a couple of stylish putter grips you can get as well. These are are also fairly thick and feel solid.
Overall, the JumboMax grips are game changers. It may take a short time to get used to them since you’ve been using skinny grips for so long.
But, once you do get used to them, you’d be surprise at how much extra power you can generate. Just squeeze and let it rip (Did that sound wrong?)!
I’d recommend finding a place that may let you test them before you buy as it is a transition.
To me personally, these are one of the best grips I’ve ever felt. If you get a chance to test them, then I think you’ll really enjoy these.
Bye bye blisters!
You can check out their grips at JumboMax.com where they have starter kits.

Golf Pride is one of the most powerful brands in the sport of golf. How does a brand get so critcally acclaimed?
By releasing some of the most high quality grips out there. Golf Pride’s CP2 Performance Grips are no different.
These grips are wonderful and they go great with all of the clubs in the bag. The first thing you’ll notice about the CP2’s is their style.
The popular, wrap style with beautiful black and blue as well as black and red designs. The wrap is always great because it’s set up so well for the curling of your fingers as you grip, getting your hands into a “strapped and ready to go” mode.
The best thing about the CP2’s are how tacky they are. I have never felt a more tackier grip as these things tick to your hands like glue!
You know how sometimes you grip a club, and you hold it so tight because you think it’ll slip out your hands? Well, with the CP2’s you don’t have to worry about that.
You can just get your hands into a comfortable position and that’s the thing that makes these grips so powerful. They also have a thick, softer feel so even if you did squeeze the grip a little harder, it shouldn’t phase you too much.
It feels great on both hands and connects with the glove on your hand beautifully without feeling like you’re not in complete control. Thanks to the softer feel of the CP2’s, you’ll be able to hit more powerful shots off the tee as well as hit more relaxed shots from the fairway with the irons.
Overall, Golf Pride has done it again with the CP2’s and the soft feel really helps boost confidence without the fear of aching hands or the club slipping out your hands.

Remember the Kick X golf balls? I’m sure you’ve seen them on TV many, many times thanks to the Golf Channel.
Kick X created some terrific golf balls with a unique alignment tool to help you sink more putts. They also have soft touch around the greens among other things.
But that’s not what I wanted to talk about. The same guys who made those awesome golf balls have also just created some golf clubs to go along with their signature balls.
Specifically, I want to talk about one of the most important clubs in the bag and that would be the driver. Kick X’s driver however is different from traditional drivers.
It’s incredibly, a combination of a driver, fairway wood and hybrid. They call it the Blast DriveWay and it’s a Fairway-Driver Hybrid (Say that three times fast) and I’ll tell you right off the bat (Or in this case, right off the club face) that it’s a really good club.
First thing you’ll notice right away when you look at the club is the super awesome, amazingly cool head cover. It’s a boxing glove, which pretty much tells you that the driver really packs a “punch” and features the cool Kick X logo on it.
The next thing you’ll notice is that the club head is gorgeous. It features an orange, white and black that could definitely turn some heads on the golf course.
Probably the biggest thing you’ll notice with the head is that it’s much smaller than most drivers. This is really cool as it’s small enough to where you can hit shots off of the fairway so if you ever wanted to use your driver as a fairway wood, then here’s your chance.
Despite the smaller clubhead, this beauty still goes a long way. Another cool thing about the smaller clubhead is that it makes it easier to make better contact.
Sometimes, if play with a driver with a larger clubhead, you can sometimes chunk it due to the thick size. Since this head is smaller, you have a better chance of avoiding the ground with the bottom of the head.
The bottom of the head on the Blast DriveWay is more of a cavity kind of bottom. This can really help you make smoother swings.
One of the cool features of the Blast DriveWay is the clubface. With the Kick X golf balls, the signature feature of them were the alignment lines that featured two lines side by side with a small line in between. This can lead to more “deadeye” putts if you read the green correctly.
With the Blast DriveWay clubface, it features the signature “X” in the middle of it with black and orange lines side by side. What’s nice about this is that it makes extremely easy to tell where your sweet spot is, obviously being the “X” (X marks the spot right? YAR!).
The shaft is a beautiful orange and while color and is made by Grafalloy. As we know, Grafalloy is widely regarded as one of the best shaft companies in golf known for there stability which leads to more powerful swings.
The grip is awesome. It’s your popular velvet style but has a softer feel than most and compliments the rest of the club nicely.
Overall, the Blast DriveWay ia great driver and was a bold move for a company that started with only golf balls. They decided to use their minds which helped create their wonderful golf balls to create a beast of a driver.
It has the power of a driver, accuracy of a fairway wood or hybrid.
You can check out the features of the club at KickXGolf.com.
Be sure to follow me on Twitter @ChiGolfRadio! I’m likely talking about the U.S. Open coming up and Chambers Bay, the recent Players Championship, golf video games or even some street/adventure golf!

Golf Pride has become a powerhouse in the golf equipment industry. For many years, their grips have been the highest rated on the PGA Tour.
They’ve become one of the most iconic names in the history of golf when it comes to equipment. Now, they’ve come back once again with the fire.
The brand new MCC Plus 4’s just might be their best grips yet. There’s a couple of cool features that makes gripping a club so much less stressful on the hands.
One of the things that you’ll notice right away away is how much thicker these grips are. What makes this so great is that it’ll make things more comfortable for your hands and in return will help you take more powerful swings.
Aching hands can be stressful on the whole body so if the grips aren’t comfortable, your swing will become less powerful. The MCC Plus 4 grips make sure you don’t have to worry about this.
They feel terrific and much different from other Golf Pride grips that I used in the past. What helps this even more is the style of them.
The rubber of the grips are unique and helps make them feel much more softer than most grips. One of the signature features of the MCC Plus 4s is the larger lower hand.
The lower hand on a lot of grips tend to be too skinny. The MCC Plus 4s are much bigger which works excellently with short game play.
In most cases, when you’re pitching, chipping or taking a flop shot, choking a little on your club can help you hit more accurate shots. Since the MCC Plus 4s are large enough to get your hands in a relaxed position to hit that perfect short shot.
The top of the grip also feels a little bit larger which is great for that extra comfort. This helps when you want to hit that powerful drive or hit that accurate iron shot from the fairway.
A style feature of the grips are Golf Pride’s signature multicolored look. This should be very familiar to fans of Golf Pride.
Overall, I was quite impressed with the MCC Plus 4s and I personally think it was a smart move on their part to make the grips thicker. A thicker grip really helps take the aching out of your hands to help you play your best.
If you don’t feel ready to get a set, I’d recommend going to a local golf store and getting a “feel” for the grips yourself. Or you can start off with an individual grip first.
This is what I do. I also make sure I’m putting that one grip on my favorite club and you should too (In my case, it’s the pitching wedge. We learn something new everyday don’t we?).

You know SuperStroke. You know, the rapdily growing, crazy popular golf grip company known for it’s oversized putter grips? Well, the company made popular by Jordan Spieth and Jason Dufner has decided to create some grips that you can use for ALL of your clubs.
So now you’ll have one of their wonderful putter grips on your putter and some regular grips for your irons, driver, etc. The TX1 Premium Golf Club grips from Super Stroke are just as unique as their puffy, fluffy putter grips.
The first thing you’ll notice with the TX1 grips is the beauty of them. These are very colorful, bright, smack in your face grips that will stand out among other golf clubs at the course.
The bottom of the grip features the popular and always terrific rubber feel. Always a nice feature to help get your dominant in a comfortable position to execute the perfect shot.
Now the top of the grip is what makes the TX1 grips stand out from others. It’s the most colorful part of the grip and the material is unique.
The top part of the grip has somewhat of a soft cloth feeling or a soft carpet feel. This really helps get your hands in a comfortable state because it’s almost as if one of those furry kind of blankets are wrapped around it.
It really is a comfortable feeling and I don’t have to worry about how my hands feel. Instead, I can just focus on the shot I need to hit.
SuperStroke never seems to disappoint and they have risen to become one of the hottest golf companies around. But now, since they’ve spreaded they’re wings and decided to throw some regular grips into the mix, it just makes SuperStroke that much better.
The TX1’s are great grips that are really good for wedges I must say as well.\
Now, if only they made the TX1’s as fat and puffy as their putter grips! Hmmm….
You can get the TX1 grips at SuperStrokeUSA.com
Follow me on Twitter @ChiGolfRadio because well, I really have nothing else better to do!

What’s the popular saying in golf? “Drive for show, putt for dough”. This saying pretty much tells that although putting is as sexy as driving a ball 300 yards down the fairway, it still racks in the dough, gives you triumph, makes you upset, makes you start doing a silly dance, etc.
One thing about putters, no other club in the bag tugs at our emotions more than the putter. It’s the scoring club, the one that puts your ball in the hole.
They also may be the prettiest clubs to look at.
Well, Mantis Golf, a newer company that specializes in putters knows how create some beautiful flat sticks.
They have options of a mallet or a blade putter. I decided to go with the mallet because my very first putter was a mallet.
I’ll tell you right off the bat that these putters are absolutely gorgeous. They feel wonderful as soon as you put your hands on the grip.
The grip on the club is terrific by the way. Very soft and comfortable which is important to having soft touch on the greens.
When taking some strokes, the first thing you’ll notice is the beautiful clanking sound you hear when the ball comes off of the club face. It acually has a heavier feel when you putt which could be very beneficial on short putts.
The reason I say this is because if it feels to light off the club face, then that’s how you potentially over shoot the cup. Then it probably rolls down that steep slope of the green leaving you with a long putt and leaving you on the ground crying like a newborn.
It happens to the best of us though right?
This putter is so awesome, that I made 4 putts in the row from medium-close range (It was kinda close but it wasn’t a gimme). It was from the same spot however but still, that’s always a nice thing if you’re doing that!
The style of the club is the signature of the putter. It’s one of the more unique looking putters you’ll find anywhere.
The clubhead is a beautiful green with a nice round, shape to it. It’s pure green and nothing but green (Favorite color right here! What’s yours?) and there’s a gorgeous silver spot under the head with the Mantis logo embedded in it.
The grip goes perfectly with the head. It has a bright green color on the top and bottom of the grip with a nice stretch of white in between.
The top part of the grip has the word “Mantis” going downwards while the Mantis logo is planted nicely in the white area of the grip.
The putter also comes with a fantastic head cover to protect that “pretty to look at” clubhead. Instead of the traditional velcro putter head covers for mallets, the Mantis cover closes using a magnet to seal shut.
It’s a quiet way to put on and remove the cover. Great for sneaking out to your putting green at night while your folks and neighbors are sleeping.
And then a pack of wolves surround on the green to “join” your round.
Overall, the Mantis mallet putter is a win win. It could literally be a win win when you’re sinking that tournament winning putt or that match play you decided to settle with that buddy who oddly hits better shots out of the rough than the fairway.
The Mantis putters are being used on the PGA Tour and Web.com Tour this year as well which is always nice. So basically, you’re using a hot new putter that the pros use.
The Mantis putter is hot fire, so the next time you hit the course, be sure to bring the fire extinguisher. Bring a handkerchief too because the designer of the course yo’re playing will be sweating.
Check out these sweet putters at MantisGolfCo.com

One of the things about golf that seem to be an issue to some players is that there are way too many clubs in the bag, causing the bag to reach a weight of up to 45 pounds. This is a reason why you see a lot of golfers ride carts instead of walking the layouts.
Well, the crew at Walking Sticks has a solution for this and it’s a good one. No, these aren’t literally “walking sticks”, that’s just the name of the company.
They put together a set of three irons that play like all nine different irons. “Whaaa??” you ask?
Well, these irons have special levers on the back of their heads. When you lift the lever, you can twist the head to the loft of your choice based on the shot.
Each club is three clubs. So for example, the longest club in the bag is a combination of a 3, 4 and 5 iron.
the second club is the combination of a 6,7 and 8 iron and finally the third club is a combination of a 9 iron, pitching wedge and sand wedge. All you need to do is choose the club you want, pull the lever, twist the head to the desire loft, close the lever and swing away.
Experiencing these clubs, I was a tad bit skeptical at first but after taking some swings with all of the different lofts, I’ll say that I absolutely love these clubs. They feel and hit like conventional clubs and it’s amazing.
The grips are nice and thick and easy to grab. You can swing as fast as you want and it won’t damage anything. It’s quite impressive when you think about it.
They way the ball comes off the club faces feels amazing, you wouldn’t even think it’s a specialty club. You’d think it’s your tradition clubs.
Around the greens, the 9 iron/P wedge/S wedge really works tremendously. I don’t even need to go back to the bag and choose a club, all I need to do is lift the lever and change it to the club I prefer.
So, if I want the most possible loft in my pitch or flop shot, I’ll twist the club head to the sand wedge position and fire away. If I want a little extra roll and my chips, I’ll twist the club head to the 9 iron position to take a little extra loft off.
It’s really that simple. And just holding the clubs in your hands and taking simple practice swings just feels beautiful.
One of the great things about these clubs is that they take no time to change the lofts. Golf traditionalists usually think these clubs would take a century to change the loft but that’s so far from the truth that statements like that could have their own planets in the Milky Way.
Probably the greatest thing about these clubs is that they help you walk the course more and take advantage of the health benefits. Carts are fun to ride in and all but at the same time, you’re zooming past all of the sites of the course and won’t get a chance to suck it all in.
The clubs come with a gorgeous 7″ diameter golf bag, that’s very lightweight and easy to carry. With these clubs and maybe two or three other clubs (Driver, putter, and 3 wood most likely), you’re going to go from a whopping set of 14 clubs to just five or six clubs.
This reduces the weight of you bag from 27 or even 40+ pounds to just 10 pounds. Let me tell you, I couldn’t believe how light the bag was with that many less clubs.
It makes you realize that what you’ve been carrying is very heavy compared to a set of Walking Sticks irons and a few of your traditional clubs. The bag is so much easier to carry now compared to my old set, it’s ridiculous.
Heck, I didn’t even need to throw the bag around my back, I just carried the bag by the little handle!
The bag has all of your regular, neat little pockets to put all of your balls, tees, etc in during your round. Makes for a great traveling set as well due to its thin size.
The more you walk the course, the better. You can burn 2000 calories by walking an 18 hole course.
You’re not going to see a lot of people doing it if they’re carrying a bag that’s twice as heavy as the set of Walking Sticks clubs. Although they may want to walk the course, they just can’t do it.
With these clubs and the light bag, you’ll be able to walk the course with ease and feel better doing it. You’ll also actually be able to focus on your shots rather than your back, legs, feet, etc.
The only catch is, if you’re a player who plays on a local amateur tour, I’d get a hold of your tour director and see if it’s OK to play with the Walking Sticks clubs. If not, then these make for excellent clubs when you’re just playing a regular round of golf.
They also make fantastic practice clubs when you need them. Maybe you’re on the road and want to keep your game sharp without having to hull in your set of 14 clubs. That’s a good way to take advantage of the benefits of the Walking Sticks.
So, you get a nice set of golf clubs that swing great, you get a lightweight bag that can hold all of your accessories and you get the great benefit and enjoyment of walking a beautifully designed golf course.
You can also do the same things you usually would with traditional clubs such as shorten your shafts or get your grips changed. You also get the same sensation of pulling the club out of your bag like a regular club (Some golfers just love the feeling of pulling a club out of a bag) which is always a nice little touch.
Overall, the clubs are great, they feel great, hit great and makes walking with them so much easier. They are terrific.
And this is for you. Phil, the brilliant mind behind these clubs was kind enough to give me a code for you, the reader to get your set of Walking Sticks golf clubs at a low price.
When you go to WalkingSticksGolf.com, enter the code gpgolf you’ll get $200 off the regular price. Now isn’t that cool or what?
You also get this code when you subscribe to The GP Golf Report as well. And you know, what, you really deserve it.
For you to be reading my blog for almost two years now is unbelievable. Without you, I’m really just some dude who likes golf.
I’m still just a dude who likes golf but now I write about it and brings pure joy to my heart that you take the time out of your busy day to read my work.
So go ahead and enjoy your clubs and again, thank you oh so very much! Happy golfing!
