There are even fun and interesting items for those players who are only interested in the outing. The following list is but a few of the newest items a golfer might consider purchasing in order to improve their game, increase the levity of some situations or just own because having these things are cool.
Golf Gadgets That Should Be In Your Bag
- The SkyKap Advisor: If this new gadget could only somehow figure out how to pull clubs from the bag and wash golf balls it would be the PERFECT caddy! If you’re into technology at all (i.e., you have a computer and know how to turn it on) the SkyKap Advisor is a great choice and you wear it just like it was an ordinary ball cap, because that’s what it is. This is a golf range finder gps device that fits into your hat and responds to your voice commands. It can download information for over 2,000 courses and if your favorite is not amongst those, the device will record distances and other information which you can upload and share with local users. You only need a PC with USB connectivity and the ability to learn a few of the voice commands. Once you’re out on the course you can ask for direction, distance and other relevant information that will help you shape your shots, choose the best clubs, whatever it takes to reduce your scores.
- The Practice Green Putt Retuner: Even the somewhat less than completely dedicated golfer knows that scores are blown with bad putting. The Practice Green Putt Returner is one of the most useful golf gadgets you can purchase (or suggest to your loved ones as an appropriate gift!) Much like those office putting green return systems, the Returner goes several steps further. It allows you to go out to your favorite real greens and increase the practice’s effectiveness. By dropping the return catapult system into the hole and placing errant ball guide slightly behind that, you are able to have balls automatically returned to you up to 14 feet away. This provides you with back saving via less bending over to pick up your golf balls as well as making the practice process faster overall by 2 to 3 times. This is definitely a must have device.
- Eyeline Golf Ball Liner: You’ve definitely seen the pro golfers using lined balls, you might even do it yourself. But if you are free handing those lines, you might be doing yourself a disservice. Are they perfectly straight? If you’re even using perpendicular lines, can you be sure that they are at proper 90 degree angles? If you start using this very low cost ball liner, you can be assured that the lines on your golf balls are exactly as they should be and will provide you with the very best sightings for making more of your putts.
- Segway X2 Golf: If you’ve seen those cool, 2 wheeled Segways you’ll understand the appeal of this newer golf gadget. Specially modified to to hold your club bag, and with enough battery power to run a full 36 holes, the X2 may not help lower your scores, but it will certainly elevate your on-course profile!!
