I was struggling to play golf regularly until
I came across the Universal Golf Club. My job requires a
significant amount of travel, and I have young kids who aren't
up to spending long hours on the golf course. The Universal
Club has solved the problem. I now pack the Universal
club in my carry-on luggage when travelling and can make
the most of any down time when overseas. At home
I can jog around 9 holes in a little over an hour carrying the
Universal (and sometimes a Driver and Fairway Wood if I'm in the
mood). When on holiday in the family motorhome, the Universal
Club is always at the ready should we come across one
of the hundreds of country courses around New Zealand. With a
van full of kids gear, there's no way I'd be able to carry a full
set of clubs and trundler with me.
While it did take me a while to get used to
the club (like any new club), I'm now hitting the ball as
well with the Universal Club as I had with my conventional set
(which I plan to sell this summer). The rotating
head mechanism is pure genius - the thought and engineering that
has gone into it is evident and I can't fault the quality.
I can now switch from one pitch to another in seconds
- with nothing more than a glance at the club.
I can't fault the telescopic shaft either. Once it's locked
in place I don't give it any more thought. The integrated
putter really works too - again it took some practice,
but I'm actually putting better than ever now. The
real trick to using the club is learning to choke down on
the handle to accommodate the desired pitch. In that
sense there's more skill to using the Universal Club than
conventional clubs where the shaft length is pre-set.
But most people will quickly get used to this and will enjoy the
Overall the benefits are simply too long to
list. I'm always ready for golf, have left all
the gear behind, get around the course much more easily and quicker, and
I have managed to combine golf with a good work out (if I
choose to jog). And best of all, I play much more regularly
(and in more interesting places). More golf and more family
time - and who can claim that? The Universal Golf
Belt Bag is also well worth thinking about (I like it almost
as much as the club itself).
