Golf is not exactly the cheapest hobby in which one can indulge in, but neither does it cost a bomb such as car racing. Still, you would need to have a substantial amount of money to get started, ranging from the set of clubs all the way to a golf club membership if you would like to get serious with things. Having said that, walking the entire course is a surefire way to end up thirsty, especially in the sweltering summer heat, and this means ordering drinks from the club’s restaurant. However, if you are in a pinch this month and would like to save some money on the side, investing in the $89.95 Golfer’s Clandestine Cooler does make plenty of sense.

As its name suggests, the Golfer’s Clandestine Cooler comes with the cooler concealed within a golfer’s shag bag. Sly swingers can then enjoy their chilled libations of choice on the links, saving money in the process. The bag surreptitiously stows enough beverages to keep an entire foursome refreshed over a full round, as it has enough room to hold a dozen 12-oz. bottles or 18 12-oz. cans, in addition to 5 lbs. of ice. It provides a welcome relief to lukewarm refreshments that are smuggled in via shorts pockets, or waiting for what seems like infinity for a chilled clubhouse beverage.

Garmin Approach S20 GPS golf watch announced Thu, 28 Jan 2016 13:00:37 +0000 garmin-approach-s20When it comes to GPS golf watches, you can more or less rely on one particular name that can just about deliver all the time, and that would be Garmin. In the past, the company has rolled out its fair number of GPS golf watches, and this time around it looks like the Garmin Approach S20 GPS golf watch is set to further cement the legendary performance of Garmin’s products in this niche market yet again.

First of all, the Garmin Approach S20 GPS golf watch comes across as a stylish, sleek and lightweight device, where this versatile timepiece comes with far more than just the ability to be able to tell you what time it is (actually, you already know – it is golfing time!). It will be preloaded with more than 40,000 courses around the world, in addition to daily activity tracking and connected features such as smart notifications and automatic updates.

Not only that, there is also a new AutoShot feature that records the location and distance of every shot automatically, before allowing the data to be uploaded to the recently updated Garmin Connect mobile app for post-round analysis. The S20 will also work great in offering information such as yardages to the green, hazards and others, and will play nice with the new TruSwing golf club sensor in order to deliver in-depth swing metrics.

Sporting a stylish and comfortable full-hinged watchband, the Approach S20 is perfect for everyday use. Apart from the rather obvious golf features, the S2 will also sport daily activity tracking that monitors and records daily steps, calories burned, distance and sleep, in addition to move alerts so that users will be notified to remain active throughout the day. The S20 is also capable of receiving smart notifications from compatible smartphones, letting you remain connected via notifications for call, texts, emails and more right on your new favorite timepiece.

Expect the Garmin Approach S20 to arrive next month in black, white and midnight teal for a recommended retail price of $199.99.

Junior Golfer’s Electric Golf Cart brings him places Fri, 13 Nov 2015 14:00:52 +0000 junior-golf-cartMonkey see, monkey do. It seems that our children love to pattern their lives after us, after all, what better example do they have than their parents or guardians? It is either that or the world that will shape the way the think, act and speak. Having said that, if you are an avid golfer and have brought your little one around the course before in a golf cart, then chances are pretty high that he might grow up thinking that he would want one of those fancy golf carts for himself.

The Junior Golfer’s Electric Golf Cart happens to enable budding golfers to play 18 backyard holes in comfort. It works in more or less the same manner as that of an actual golf cart, allowing riders to travel forwards or backwards, as well as to relax between holes on the cushioned seat under a nylon canopy. There is the plastic putter, iron, and driver which are stored conveniently in a golf bag, which in turn will rest in the back of the cart. The cart itself travels at a safe 2.5 mph and even boasts of a working horn just in case the family dog needs to be alerted. A 10-hour charge provides up to 40-minute rides.

SensoGlove delivers its digital golf glove Mon, 19 Oct 2015 12:00:02 +0000 new-sensogloveSo, you think that you are a pretty good golfer among the rest of your peers, and would like nothing better than to go for a few rounds on the green to whack away all of those Monday blues. Calling it a spot of much needed exercise as well, you aim to improve on your game – but do not really want to invest in huge sums of money for a personal golfing coach. This has left you to the devices of golfing magazines, cut outs from the newspaper, as well as YouTube videos that you suspect are nothing more than clickbait. How about being a person who trusts in digital instruments – which would mean that the time is due for a new version of the SensoGlove?

The older SensoGlove was first covered seven years ago (!) – it has been that long, which means that the time is ripe for a long overdue refresh. This particular golfing glove would come with patented wearable technology complete with sensors embedded throughout the glove, meaning there is no need for an app. The new SensoGlove also aims to help you kick the bad habits – and replacing them with good ones, which will help to correct your grip in order to deliver an accurate and powerful swing, providing information at 80 times per second, now how about that? The new digital golf glove with wearable sensor technology will be priced at $89 a pop, where it sports a small, sweat-proof, removable 1.2-inch LED digital monitor and highly responsive sensors throughout the glove which can analyze the pressure of the swing for real-time audio and visual feedback.

The patented SensoGlove will also offer a warning should you exceed your target level of grip pressure, and it will also show just which fingers are gripping on too tightly, in order for you to adjust your grip accordingly. The “Automatic Sensitivity Selection” Button delivers automatic, accurate pressure readings for a consistently smooth and powerful golf swing providing greater distances and lower scores. SensoGlove is available for men and women in right or left hand configurations, and sizes range from small to x-large, while replacement gloves can be picked up for $22.48 apiece.

OptiShot Golf reveals the portable OptiShot2 Fri, 12 Dec 2014 12:00:26 +0000 optishot2Do you eat, sleep, and breathe golf? If you have answered in the affirmative, then I am quite sure that you are an avid fan of picking up various golf magazines in order to better know how you can improve on your strokes to reduce your handicap, and have also amassed quite the number of golf videos so that you can watch how the pros do it – and follow them in their stead. Of course, the more hardcore ones out there would actually go for a one-to-one coach, which can end up to be pretty expensive in the long run. What if there was a mobile device that could help you improve on your golf game in the long run (or at least it claims to), without having to break the bank? This is where OptiShot Golf’s OptiShot2 come in handy.

The OptiShot2 is a unique golf simulator that will make use of the latest in analytic and shot tracer technology, where it will be accompanied by an easy to use interface in order to come up with the ultimate real-world golf experience. It is not only compact in size, but cost as well, where there is no need to come up with an elaborate setup. It works with just about any other club that is in your bag, and will play nice regardless of whether you are a Mac or Windows user. The inclusion of the spanking new OptiShot Live feature would allow users to play 18 holes on the world’s most famous courses with friends, family and competitors all over the world – and to do so without having to actually purchase a single plane ticket. Heck, you can enjoy a round of 18 holes right smack in the comfort of your living room.

The OptiShot2 Golf Simulator comes with an asking price of $499.95, where it will offer a swing and ball-shot accuracy that is just like playing real golf. After all, that is to be expected when it comes equipped with sixteen precisely-tuned, high-speed 48MHz infrared sensors, and each of them has been specially calibrated to track your favorite clubs, before, during and after contact. The OptiShot2 technology and PinPoint accuracy system would then offer the user precise and instantaneous feedback on every shot so that they can work on it for further refinement.

The Glowing Golf Balls make sure you don’t have to turn in early Tue, 28 Oct 2014 20:10:05 +0000 Glow-in-the-dark golf balls and canister
When you’re having a good day playing golf, you don’t really want to stop just because the sun is going down. Of course, you don’t really have a choice, as you not only can’t see where the ball is going, but will have no way of finding it once it lands. If you just can’t help but keep playing, then why not light up the golf balls so they’re easier to find?

The Glow-In-The-Dark Golf Balls make sure you won’t have to stop in the middle of a game at twilight. This is a real golf ball that has a phosphorescent material that is part of the shell. Charging one for a single minute in the provided canister that has 15 LEDs that will provide enough light for you to finish playing. The canister is sized to fit in the cup holder of a cart, so you won’t have to worry about misplacing it or having to store it in your bag when you want to use it.

There are six balls included in this package, and you’ll need two AA batteries for the canister to charge the balls. This will cost you $69.95, and considering you’re just paying for glow-in-the-dark golf balls and a light, that seems a little steep. It is the convenience factor coming into play again, as leaving the balls under a light source would take far longer than using the included charger. It’s certainly a luxury item for golfers, but it would be nice to be able to keep going when you only have a few holes left and it’s starting to get dark.

Available for purchase on Hammacher

EyePutter Golf Putting Trainer could improve your game Tue, 14 Oct 2014 15:00:32 +0000 eye-putterGoflers would do a whole lot in order to lower their score. After all, it is not exactly a cheap game to be involved with, and they tend to want to pick up new gear from time to time, hoping that their latest purchase would be able to help improve their performance in the next game. We have seen a fair number of gadgets that target golfers in the past too, such as the Eagle Putt Trainer, and this time around it would be the $39.99 EyePutter Golf Putting Trainer.

SkyMall claims that the EyePutter Golf Putting Trainer will be able to lower your golf game by 8 to 10 strokes (!) with this simple device, which is a rather bold claim. Although I myself do not play golf, it would be interesting to hear what experienced golfers have to say about this device. The EyePutter Golf Putting Trainer basically lets you see the line every single time that you would like to putt, making it somewhat more like a video game than anything else. Golf handicaps will eventually be lowered on the green (hopefully!). There is a built-in level within that helps keep your putter blade square and the angled mirror unit ensures you’re always on-line, leaving you free to focus on technique and building pro-level muscle memory instead.

Hey, if you want to blow $35,500 on the Gotham Golfcart, by all means go ahead and do so. This is one golf cart that has been specially inspired by the Tumbler, which is the vehicle ridden by the iconic caped superhero from the 2005-2012 Dark Knight movie series. It will allow you to avoid sand traps and water hazards in style, just like how Batman made short work of the police and roadblocks in the movies.

The Gotham Golfcart will roll across the green on six course-friendly tires, where the back four happen to be smaller 28″ versions of the originals from the movie vehicle. It will run on a 6-horsepower, battery-powered electric go-cart motor, with the cart being able to hit a top speed of 38mph for quick follow-up shots or to retrieve an errant slice. It comes in Bruce Wayne’s favorite color – black, and sports an all-black alloy body that will feature twin aerodynamic wings that fold around the passenger compartment in order to protect occupants from incoming golf balls. To ensure a smooth ride, there is a 4-link rear suspension accompanied by rear disc brakes that deliver confident stops.
