Saw this on Facebook today and can’t tell if it is supposed to be for real or an elaborate joke?

Don’t care how bad my putting ever got or what the “science” of this putter is. 

Just could not do it... 😎😎

The Hammer ws selling odd-looking drivers on TV a few years ago, so I think its serious.  I'm pretty sure the putter shown is also illegal.  The face is required to be longer (heel toe)  than the depth of the putter from front to back.

 Legal or not would not make a difference to me. I just don’t think I could use something like that. 

 No matter how desperate I ever got about my putting which fortunately is still pretty good.

You have to yell "POW" when you make contact and the ball will go in the hole every time 😉

Don't think I could do that either. 😀

I recently read a tweet on my timeline from a pro or industry person that basically said I can't believe the number of BS products out there in golf land. Can't find it though.

That's nothing.I tried the stubby by cleveland few years ago and I felt it made you putt better because face was just lil bit bigger than ball in form of a cube.Its basically 1 square of that 2 square putter they make.Its a training aid but its legal for play.

He's done a number of infomercials with 5SK, Medicus, and others. I've talked to him a good bit. He's a pro's pro. Phenomenal at his job.

Not sure why he would bother with such a ridiculous product having done that work prior.

Did I say it was? But at least the bracelets are legal right?

There is all sorts of nonconforming golf equipment available - clubs, balls, distance measuring devices, etc.  This has been the case for decades.  It pays to check it out if it looks too strange or unfamiliar, or you could end up getting booted from a tournament for using something like that.

    • You know, I tried the online lessons path. Worked with a guy in london, I'm based in Pakistan and there are no certified / trained coaches here.  The guy told me I needed wrist hinge. I tried that for months and only managed to move the wrist a few inches by the time the club reached parallel on the backswing. 
    • As a former student for 2+ yrs I don’t think this is true. His concept is simple, be still and closed through impact while having a single swing thought. Do you have a video where he talks or teaches this advanced version?
    • You need continued lessons with a pro, whether online or in-person.  Comments on a forum like this one can point you in the right direction, but ultimately, you need a pro to work with you for best results.
    • Good grief, get over yourself.   What does this have to do with Jordan Spieth?!   Ok, but slugging through a career of golf with nowhere near the success of Spieth is?  You have no idea what someone else's version of "enduring happiness" is.  He's young, talented, accomplished, is married, etc.; seems to me like he has it made so far.  You're starting to sound like a "get off my lawn you entitled brats who don't work as hard as I did back in my day" kind of guy more and more.  Come off it already.  Your kind of baseless arguments are the reason why "Ok Boomer" is a thing.     Back to what?  Less pay for people doing a job?  Jealous much?   We're not talking about the Olympics!  Quit ranting about the good old days, Grandpa. Nostalgia isn't always as grand as you think it was.  Athletes are bigger, stronger, and perform better than ever.   Ok... so don't.     Not the topic of this thread.  Ok... so don't watch.  I don't watch either.   Instead of ranting and jumping around ideas you have in your head, provide some valid, critical logical reasoning and analysis to the topic at hand.
    • Well I think that is an argument many have against professional sports in general. Many see a bunch of spoiled brats and it can become a real turn off.  I think it is naive to dismiss idea that that money has the potential to corrupt the innocence of a person or a sport. I don't think early success on the scale mentioned is necessarily the recipe for enduring happiness.  With professional sports and with society in general, there is no going back. I am a guy who remembers the days when the Olympics was for those with amateur status. Money has corrupted the Olympic spirit. Now it is something I cannot even bear to watch. College football is approaching that for me as well. I have a limited appetite for that anymore. Enjoy the show and I will stick with my dumb assertions and reserve the right to push the off button.
