Before I put the campaign email and all that, I've signed up for six of these. I think that they will be quite helpful for a few things:

  • Some training, both as things you putt and things you can put in the way to help influence clubhead or swing direction.
  • Newer players (the equator of the ball is higher, so new players will have an easier time getting these up in the air).
  • Reduced distance games for college golfers playing from the front-most tees… or other unique challenges like that.

Big.Balls., the Oversized Golf Training Ball That Helps Golfers Hit More Birdies, Launches Campaign on Kickstarter

Designed to improve putting and lower the number of strokes, Big.Balls. helps golfers take strokes off their game

 

Ontario, Canada- Big.Balls. is the first ever over-sized golf ball that is used to help train golfers to score more birdies and eliminate three-putts. The innovative golf ball is expertly engineered to help golfers improve their game in practice so they can bring their skills to the green. Big.Balls. is currently running a campaign on Kickstarter to raise enough funds for the final production of the flagship product.

 

Big.Balls. are thirty percent larger than the traditional, PGA-approved golf ball to help avid and novice golfers improve their putting game. Big.Balls. have the same core and outer shell as traditional golf balls to ensure they feel, roll and weigh the same as traditional balls.

 

After putting with Big.Balls. in practice, when golfers step onto the green with a standard size ball, the hole will subconsciously appear larger and increase the golfer’s confidence in hitting any short putt.

 

“Our over-sized golf balls are designed to work the same way practice balls for other sports industries do,” Big.Balls. CEO Myles Doak said. “Basketball players use oversized balls to practice shooting and some golfers even resort to using tennis balls to practice their putt. With Big.Balls., golfers are practicing with something as similar as they can get without buying gimmicky, expensive, tech-related golf products.”

 

Every Big.Balls. package comes with two oversized balls as well as a guide of short putting drills, so golfers can effortlessly perfect their putt. Currently, Big.Balls. is accepting pre-orders starting at $XX for one package. To learn more or to pre-order, visit bit.ly/BigBallsKS.

Seems like the same thing (putting practice) could be better accomplished with a smaller cup or smaller target. I'll be interested to see a review.

Since the equator is higher, wouldn't it encourage hitting putts too low on the face?

I do think they'd be fun in a scramble or some kind of tournament as a "gimmick".

Seriously you think this is a good idea?

For regular golf? No.

Read what I wrote. None of those three things are using them to play regular golf (except the last, and that's with a college team playing from the forward tees, effectively using them as limited flight balls).

I don't think I'd use them to teach putting. Though they could help you better learn capture speed (since they'd have to be hit slower to fall below the equator).

Yeah.


Like I said, a big thing is that the equator is higher and the ball would be easier to get in the air for a newer player.

They'd sit up higher in the rough and/or on the fairway as well.

    • I don't have any new video to share but I have experienced some changes physically and with my golf swing that I have to think are going to be beneficial over the long haul. First I dropped almost 50lbs from a high of 223 I was able to get as low as 172 and bounced back up to 179 but I really would like to shed about 15 more to get somewhere in the 160s. Secondly I have noticed something of a habit a bad one at that seems to have gone away. I think since I have decided to throttle down a bit on my swing speed since I'm getting older I noticed I'm not letting go of the club at the top since there is no longer excessive wear on the glove on lower pad below pinky. I'm very hopeful that this is the year I get my game going again with hopefully a new job I'm trying for will give me more opportunity

    • An atrocity.
    • The claim is that it was equivalent to a 9-iron.   So it’s not far off.   Try pitching with that clunker though….
    • Sorry about the darkness, #wiferules. Same attempt - hands straight back to get wide at top.
