On TGC, there's so many paid advertisments, that some of them just makes me laugh.
The worst is probably the speed shaft. The guy has such a low tone voice, you'd think he's trying to mesmerize you. They really sell some piece of crap, and worst, some people buy it....

Also saw that leaderboard with Appleby and Scott in it...
And the one big circle thingy trying to make you stay on plane...

Imagine yourself going to the driving range, then setting up the leaderboard under your feet, the inside approach, the circle thing, swinging with a medicus and a momentus... And if after that you're still slicing, you'd probably need another apparatus...

I wanna get that weighted medicine ball swing trainer thing that Ernie shills. Only like 100 beans for that, I think.


And it's yellow. Why do golf training apparati (apparatuses?) have to be yellow?

I'm going to swing my speed stik. :D

The swing stik is the only thing I have ever seen that would work with my game. It has potential.

But then again, it could end up as a closet ornament, just like alot of that shit does.

Which is the one with the driver that has a sleek shape for faster swing speeds? Is that the speed shaft? That one got soo annoying, with the long drive guy screaming after every drive, it was pretty ridicuous.

I hate foosball. ;)

I use the tire instead of an impact bag. Haven't used it in awhile, but I do like slammin' it. Nothing more satisfying than making that bugger jump a coupla feet with a solid impact.

yeah, the shaft is contoured so it supposedly can go faster through the air, which seemed to me like it could very easily move through the wind as you drive, since one side is very flat. The guy talking throughout the infomercial was soo annoying, as well as the guy who can drive very long, even longer when he yells I guess.
