The average golfer can hit The BirdieBall about 40 yards with a 6 iron. As the irons go up, the distance will increase by a few yards. The Velocity Tee will allow you to tee up the BirdieBall and use a driver or fairway wood. When hitting a BirdieBall with a driver, it can fly up to 60 yards.
Yes! They are the best golf training aid for golf instruction on the market.
BirdieBall has a slightly higher center of gravity than an ordinary golf ball; as a result, it is easier to get airborne. Once airborne the axis tilts like a golf ball right to left, left to right or remains parallel. Further, the ball has a heavy feel even though it is only traveling forty yards. No golf nets are required, no golf course is required. With the cambered StrikePad, you can literally teach a class anywhere with 40 yards, even inside a gymnasium. The StrikePad releases as you hit down and through, so the student can simulate taking a divot. Artificial surfaces, astro turf and the like do not allow for the proper down and through move. Another remarkable feature of the StrikePad is the golf swing and proper plane is drawn right on the StrikePad, allowing students to visualize where their cub head should be. Imagine teaching with this tool and then allowing your student to take the golf course home with them in a box. It is revolutionizing practice and golf instruction alike. BirdieBalls are in over 7,000 schools in addition to Nike Golf Learning Centers, The McGetrick Golf Academy, The American Junior Golf Association, The Professional Golfers Career College, The High School Golf Coaches Association, Junior Prep, Open Fairways and the PGA sponsored First Tee programs.
We sell 3, 6, and 9 hole field sets which include everything you need to set up a courses in space the size of a football field. Or throw the StrikePads down on the baseline of the gymnasium floor and have a mini driving range.
