Just wondering how many members have purchased any of the gimmicks the golf channel and other sites put out there to make your game better.Seems to me they are nothing but junk huslers.

"You can't really chunk it with the square strike."

I know a couple people that would dig a ditch with that POS.

Most of it is junk. Swing speed ... use an alignment rod!

I don't have one, but I have met more than one person who swore by the Orange Whip type tool for stretching. From my perspective, most people would get far more benefit by having a session with a PGA professional focused on what they want to fix.

QUOTED  the Orange Whip type tool



I do like that thing. So there is at least one, imo, that isn't junk!

Don't be so quick to discredit the benefits of the Orange Whip; I know a couple of highly-regarded instructors here in the San Diego area who acknowledge its' merit and also employ it as a teaching aid.

As the person identified in my family as the guy who likes golf I get alot of stuff for birthdays and holidays. Some are more useful than others.

I use the putting mirror and putting sword periodically that are sold form eyeline golf. The mirror does a good job of showing alignment. The putting sword is for rolling strait putts. These are the only two items that I have received that are useful and I wish I could spend more time practicing them.

There are a few items that I have that are less useful. I have the "steel balls" that are alot heaver than a golf ball but seems to really screw up the pace in my mind. I also have a ball marker that has a level in it so you can see if the putt is left right up or down. The problem is that it only works on the spot you mark it and you cant use it in competition. You kinda have to place it on multiple spots on your line. Might be useful to read a green a day or two before a tournament but day to day not very useful.

I was criticizing the Orange whip it makes sense to me, I just haven't used one. Those I know who have one (haven't offered to let me try it) love it, so it seems to be on the useful not the junk side. As for the square strike I like my lynx chipper which is legal if I am having issues, but seldom carry it.
