Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

Anyone use an orange whip? I need help with tempo and seems like a great training aid... but $109 for a weighted ball on a stick seems like a lot.

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

I got one recently and had previously used it in lessons. Love it for not only tempo but for increasing swing speed. Driver feels like a feather after a few minutes with it.

Whip is also good for general loosening up, esp if you don't have time for some range balls before the round.

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

Found out the other day the Golf Channel Am Tour national championship is at Mission Hills in Ranch Mirage, CA (same as last year). Nothing like the California desert in September. I have played the Dinah Shore course before but not the other three. Can anyone expound on those? I might try and drive out for the day and play 36 when I'm in Orange County in March.

For reference the other three are:

Mission Hills - Pete Dye Challenge Course
Westin Mission Hills Golf Resort - Gary Player Signature Course
Westin Mission Hills Golf Resort - Pete Dye Resort Course

I played a course in San Antonio that had these on the range and I found it annoying AF. Give me a regular mat with my balls in a pile any day over having to wait for this POS to pop up a ball every time.

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

i've thought of buying the orange whip. agree it seem expensive. makes alot of sense.

have seen some competing products much much cheaper. and on big sites (A.com for one) so legit products i assume.

is there alot of stuff online as to how to use the orange whip most effectively?

i had tremendous success with kalasy's (sp?) swing magic. but again, $50-$60 for a something like a small cardboard toilet paper roll on a 7 iron. something you could make yourself for nothing and get 80% of benefit.... don't get wrong, doubt you could make your own effective orange whip.

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

Orange whip seems to be very well built and durable (so far), holding it I can easily see why it costs what it does. Seems about right it should cost as much as a single iron or wedge.

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

Yeah I've seen some cheaper knockoffs from SKLZ and some other companies that are about half the price, but I think the Orange whip seems to have the best balance and is the best-made of the bunch. Will probably ask Santa for one.

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

the other thing about the Whip is it's easy to swing it from the opposite side of your normal golf swing (swing left if your a righty, etc) to help balance out dominate and subordinate muscle development. you'll likely feel like an 8th grade girl trying to throw a football left-handed but there can be some benefit.

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

I swing it back and forth for about 10 reps (one of the exercises indicated in the manual). Really helps make sure your balance is good or else your swing back will be lol. First time I did this I realized I had a few muscles on my other side I had never used the next day.

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

Kiradech Aphibarnrat needed to T5 or better to get into the year end OWGR top 50 and secure a Masters invite and he eagled the 72nd hole to do so; pretty legit. He was battling lower back pain earlier in the round; had a trainer wrenching on him on the 7th tee or something.

I kept seeing on twitter over the weekend there was an exhibition in Aruba with guys from the Latin American tour and Canadian tour playing a Ryder Cup style event and it wasn't covered; I know the GC folks need a break too, but dang what a fun TV event that could be. Potential future stars, and tropical locales are right up the GCs alley...

Re: Orange whip,
