What is the best gift for a golfer that has everything? So really, what is the best golf gift?

Being a golfer that has everything, I know how difficult it can be to shop for. The difficult task of finding that right golf gift becomes even more difficult when the one purchasing the gift doesn't play golf!! But even if they do that doesn't help, haha.

Instead of telling you what to get. We are going tell you the top 10 worst golf gifts as voted by our Facebook Fans. Thanks to all those golfers that participated!

Top 10 worst golf gifts for a golfer! Do not buy these gifts.

1. Matt Alt My sister-in-law got me this for Christmas last year and it went straight in a dumpster the next few days...(Picture) to the left.

2. Mike Hallee A golf hat that says #1 Dad from one of your children (actually the wife). So the first time you go to play golf they ask you why you are not wearing that the gave to you as a gift for fathers day!!!!

3. Steven Diana Rice any right handed club-I'm left handed if you didn't figure it out'''''lol

How to hit better golf shots under pressure?

Posted by Tyler Sullivan on

How to hit better golf shots under pressure?

We all have felt it. Those tense shots on the first tee, or the must make putt on the 18th. No matter what level golf you play you will benefit from knowing how to hit better golf shots under pressure. Who better to teach us how to hit better golf shots under pressure then Ben Hogan.

Two easy steps:

Step 1:

One of Ben Hogan’s many secrets was to slow it down. He meant slow everything down, I mean everything. On a tournament day, he would actually drive half the posted speed limit. That’s right, half! This mindset and approach to pressure situations allowed him to stay composed and hit good golf shots. Next time you have the time, drive a little slower, walk a little slower and most importantly breathe slower..But still remember to breathe.

I recently had a golf event that put me in a high pressure situation all day. I was asked to hit golf balls in front of everyone at the golf course. Needless to say it was a perfect way to test Ben Hogan's mindset during a pressure situation. I found that I really had to think about slowing it down and be conscious of how fast I was breathing and moving. I found myself at one point feeling the pressure and breathing fast and moving too fast. I literally just sat down for a moment to slow down my body and it helped. I won't say I hit perfect shots all day but it did help me maintain composure and perform better under those pressure situations.

Step 2:

Practice under pressure! Many golfers do not put themselves in enough pressure situations before entering a tournament, club championship or that ever important round of golf with your boss. The only way to feel less pressure and perform better during high pressure situation is to practice in those circumstances.

How do I practice under pressure? Take a golf partner to the driving range and ask him to watch you hit specific shots. Don’t just have your partner watch you hit balls into the trees. Pick out a yard marker or flag stick and call each shot. That type of confidence and pressure to execute the shot will help you become more accustomed to high pressure situations and shots.

So practice and slow down to hit better golf shots under pressure!

Golf Club Driver Heads For Sale

You have spoken and we are listening. BombTech Golf is now offering our Grenade golf club driver heads for sale. Due to the input from our customers, the decision has been made to offer the golf club driver heads for sale for our customers.

In addition, the Matrix Grenade shafts are also available to purchase as a component. If you are a first time club builder, please read our article on custom club building supplies and how to build a golf driver to get started.

Please contact us if you want to talk about club building and custom golf equipment.

One question I was being asked often about our golf club driver heads, Is there a difference between the green cavities and the back cavities?

The answer is NO. The original Grenade golf driver heads were painted with black cavities as I was going for a sleek and stealthy look. As time went on, Facebook fans began asking for green cavities. I decided to put it a vote and many golfers decided that green was the way to go. Since that point the green golf driver heads are now outselling the black golf driver heads by 8 to 1. It makes me ask the question, should the black be phased out!

Putter design process has begun

Posted by Tyler Sullivan on

Putter design process has begun!!

Thursday August, 27th marked the beginning of the design and engineering process for the Grenade putter! Similar to the Grenade golf driver, the putter will be co-engineered with the University of Vermont's Engineering department.

We talked about our problem statement and the challenges all golfer's face when trying to sink more putts. Lack of accuracy, incorrect speed, wrong alignment, mis-hit putts, and the list went on and on.

First, the 4 UVM Engineering students and myself will begin our patent research. This is a long and arduous process but a necessary step.

As we talked through current designs, it was clear that there is a lot of putter designs out there that are similar in design and shape. The question becomes why? We will try and answer that question as we design and Engineer a new golf putter that is worthy of bringing to the market. If the product does not perform or doesn't meet my high expectations, than it will not be released.

Next official meeting is in 2 weeks! Bring it on.

What length golf driver should I use?

Posted by Tyler Sullivan on

What length golf driver should I use?

The topic of golf driver length is rarely discussed, as many golf companies can't adjust the length of their golf drivers once the club is built. Every year golf drivers are becoming longer and longer. It was only a few years ago that golf drivers were 43.5 to 44 inches in length. Now most off the shelf golf drivers are 46 to 46.5 inches in length. The introduction of light weight equipment has allowed this trend to continue, but is it the right move??

My answer is NO. Yes, golf companies can build golf drivers to longer lengths and maintain normal swing weights but how does it perform for most golfers. The majority of golfers and even low handicappers struggle with longer clubs. The longer you go the more difficult it is to hit it consistently and hit it square.

If that is the case, why are golf companies going longer. The longer you go the more "potential" you have for distance. Keyword there is potential, as a longer shafted golf driver will allow you to hit it farther, but only if you can hit it square. For most golfers, just hitting it square consistently is a challenge enough.

So in a basic theory, the longer your golf driver is the more POTENTIAL you have for increased distance. Likewise, the shorter you go the more accuracy and control you are likely to gain. This basic concept is why many pro golfers play golf drivers that are 44 to 44.5 inches in length. (Tiger plays a 43.5 inch driver). Because for these professionals, the potential for distance is not important if they lose any accuracy or control.

On the flip side, this concept is why many long drive golfers use golf drivers that are 48 inches in length!! I have hit many 48 inch golf drivers in my day and I would never bring it on the golf course. Well unless I had 20 golf balls in my bag...

Next time you are talking golf equipment, consider golf driver length and how it can impact your game.
