This Y shaped device is called the Drutter, not a putter or a driver but a combination of every club in your golf bag. At the bottom is a putter and at the top is a slingshot to fire the ball towards the green. The Drutter takes away from golf big time, but for a person with a bad back that enjoys the scenery of a golf course, it might be the perfect fit.

Supposedly this ball on a stick provides feedback for 100 bucks. You could also just make one for a few dollars that will have the same effect. All you need to do is position the ball where your body shouldn’t be during a swing. If you hit the ball during your swing you know to make a correction and learn from it.

Just a few swings with this contraption and you’ll be playing like a pro! I’m being sarcastic, please don’t believe that. It’s just a stick with a band attached to it.

Finally a putter that won’t fall over! It stands on its own so you can go behind it and get a better line. It’s meant to improve your putting skills but pretty much it just allows you to align your putter on the green.
Weed Whacker Driver
