Not An April Fools Joke: EZee Golf!

Thanks to the reader who sent in this non-April Fools link to a new club that pretty much does all the work for you.

Al Czervik would be thrilled:

April Fools!

Oops, silly me, didn't read the title...you've got to be kidding me!

Even EZEEER.......just stay home and say you played.......
Suddenly, my Wii Golf game looks like a workout! Sheesh! Al Czervik, indeed. :)

Look for Frank Nobilo or equivilant to be the spokesperson soon.

I got one of these. It actually works pretty well.

EZee Golf is a darned good arguement for bifurcation of the rules. With EZee, the average golfer can enjoy the game more. It will bring more folks into the game, increase revenues for PGA professionals and their courses . . . and they won't even have to support anchoring to accomplish this.

Can it be used during a slow play confrontation?

Feherty should sue for patent infringement. A very similar device is described on p. 202 of "A Nasty Bit of Rough." I think it helped Uncle Dickie of Scroughtly Wood, aka Major General (Ret.) Sir Richard Gussett, recover The Finger. Or something like that.

And I still think this is another April Fool's Joke.

I think I'll wait for the Tour version in .50cal.

They were going to include a broomstick or belly putter, but didn't want to make the game TOO easy.
We have three Ezee Golf Clubs at my golf club. We are a world renowned golf course but unfortunately only 11% of our visitors that come to Kauai play golf. We have 8 golf courses on the Island all fighting for the same golfers, Operational expenses keep going up and the expectations of turf quality are higher than ever. If we don’t do something to generate golfers quickly courses will close and that is a fact. That means people that have worked for golf courses like mine for 10 to 40 years are going to be out of a job. All the courses on the island have tried to lower fees but then the golf course conditions suffer and people eventually go looking for a better course to play. We have run every promotion possible, the fact is the number of rounds did not change we need more golfers. Ezee golf helps me take a person that has never touched a golf club in their life and in 15 minutes Boom! Someone is playing Ezee golf, and guess what they are now touching and feeling golf for the first time. One last thing to consider! Ezee golf makes golf courses accessible to people physical limitations and can not play the traditional game. All ezee golfers at our facility are hosted by our professional staff which allows us to teach the traditions and etiquette of the Golf resulting in many Ezee golfers having better etiquette than most of the golfing public . Take this into consideration and then come have fun at the Princeville Makai Golf Club with the friend that maybe you haven’t been able to get out on the course before. Feel Free to Send Me a Hate Email or if you want more info at tfreestone@troongolf.com. All the best and enjoy what golf has to offer. Tom Freestone, PGA
I played to an 8 handicap at one time. 20 surgeries and 30 yrs later I cannot stand with stability, let alone swing a long distance club. This club WILL offer me the opportunity to once again enjoy the course and camaraderie I have so missed; even if I cannot officially compete. It will assist my balance as I am able to experience the golfing experience.
