Crazy Golf Balls

When you want to annoy the knickers off someone who takes golf too seriously, these ludicrous balls will do the trick nicely. The set comprises four balls, each of which does something stupid when you hit it. The Exploder, shown in the picture, blows up into a spectacular cloud of billowing white dust. The Phantom basically vanishes on impact into a watery mist. The Jet Streamer ejects 15 feet of spiralling streaming ribbon when thwacked, and the Unputtaball simply won't go in a straight line on the green - however you hit it, it wobbles all over the place. Four great little one-hit wonders to liven up your next round. Product From iwoot.com

Crayon Pens

When you're chained to your desk for 8 hours a day it's hard not to dream of simpler times. Days when you were knee high to a grasshopper, and your idea of stress was trying to colour inside the lines of your colouring in book. Crayons were such a major part of kindergarten, and the crayon box was a waxy treasure trove of colour. You could even eat the crayons, if you didn't mind the terrible taste. The Crayon Pens bring a little piece of your childhood to the office. They look like the classic Crayola crayons but are actually twist-top ball point pens (and good ones at that). Posh enough to sign a contract with and childish enough to be fun, just don't go trying to chew the end, or you'll end up flat on your back staring into a bright light while a sadist in a white mask bores you with stories about his golf handicap.

Aerobie Pro Flying Ring

Flying things are all very well, but the Aerobie Pro is, quite honestly, the very best. It flies better, looks better and when it hits you in the face it even feels better, thanks to its soft rubbery design. (Though our research has shown that it's just as embarrassing.) Winner of the New Guinness World record throw at 1,333 feet, which is the first throw of over 1/4 mile, this 13-inch monster zooms, spins, skims, and these are just a few of its favourite things. In the park, on the beach or on the golf course it's a great way to satisfy the 'I want to chuck something' urge without unnecessarily upsetting your partner. The secret to its remarkable flight capability is buried in its Patent Spoiler rim, which balances the lift, giving you incredibly straight and accurate flight. Product From iwoot.com

Magnetic Golf

This is the perfect game for anyone who's short of time and can never manage to squeeze in a round before going home. Or anyone who's looking to dodge a bit of work for a while. With a self-explanatory title like 'Magnetic Golf' you can imagine what this nifty little package entails, but there's more complexity to it than you might think. Besides your little magnetic golfer himself (apparently there's no female version of him - that's not very representative, now is it?), you've got a green with a moveable hole, a bunker, a water hazard and some trees to set up your own personalised fairway. Now we're not really golfers, we lack the dubious taste in clothing for a start, but boy oh boy is this addictive. We've managed a hole in one once, and that was enough to have us aching to repeat the deeply satisfying experience of seeing the ball snap into its rightful place beneath the flag. We've yet to repeat it of course, but that's partly because we can't resist mixing it up a little and changing the complexity of the course. It's no simple point and flick game either, just a fractional increase or decrease in swing power can drastically alter the course of a hole, making it something of a fine art. With a bit of practice you can perform chip shots, tee shots and some pretty tricky putts and, because it's all magnetised, you've got at least some chance of getting a hole-in-one. You can really expand this game - we've gone as far as making a between-desk ravine, a cup-of-water-hazard and an in-tray bunker, all with a stupidly optimistic par. With Magnetic Golf, you can turn spare moments into hours of addictive, creative and strategic fun. Product From iwoot.com

Golf Caddy Pen Set

Chained to your desk rather than out on the fairway where you should be? Dream away with this brilliantly well made, if very silly, mini wheeled golf bag. Complete with three satisfyingly hefty clubs, all whose heads pop off to reveal ballpoint pens. Just try not to let anyone see you chipping your rubber round the desk - it's kind of embarrassing.

Golf Launchpad Golf Simulator – PS2

Imagine if you could play the finest golf courses in the world from the comfort of your own home! We don't mean sitting on the settee and pressing a few buttons on a control pad. Oh no! This is as near to proper golf as you can get without going onto a golf course. "GOLF LAUNCHPAD is a fantastic, new golf driving pad where you hit the golf balls (on tether) with your own golf clubs... now THIS IS REAL SIMULATION!"Sean Gibson, GamingIllustrated.com It is perfect for everyone from golfing enthusiasts who want to practice their game through to people that just like computer games. It's the ultimate golfing gift. Plug it into your PlayStation 2, pop in any Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2003-2007 (must be purchased separately) and you're ready to go! With British weather not being the most reliable and with ever-increasing working commitments, many players don't get much chance to play the sport they love. Well thankfully the Golf Launchpad puts an end to all of this, as you can play 'proper' golf from the comfort of your own home! Not only that, it will actually help your game. "What I found most interesting is that like my real ball flight tendencies, I was hitting it right, which gave me an accurate reading of what I tend to do wrong in my swing. While another guy who tends to pull shots was doing just that. Overall, we found the product to be easy to set up and use. The sound is uncanny to how it sounds like a real golf shot." Nick Ciattei, Golf Guide Magazine So how does it work? Think of Golf Launchpad as a high-quality golf pad or golf mat embedded with sensors and digital signal processing - effectively a specialised game controller for golf. When you swing your clubs - wood, iron or putter - Golf Launchpad uses optical sensors to measure your golf swing thousands of times each second (clubhead speed, path, angle) and translates this into information that EA Sports Tiger Woods PGA Tour software renders on-screen with breathtaking realism and accuracy. Suitable for left and right handed players, it also comes with a swing analyser so that you can modify your game accordingly! "We've had HUNDREDS OF GADGETS on the air since we started this program. Of ALL of them, the golf simulator there, GOLF LAUNCHPAD, that's the COOLEST!"ESPN2's Cold Pizza Attached to the rugged, low-profile unit is a tethered, regulation golf ball attached to a silky-smooth double ball-bearing mount for a completely authentic golf experience. Should you want to hit normal balls into a net or into a field (safely!) simply remove the tether from the ball (no tools required). The tethered balls are made from Dupont Surlyn, the same compound used in the best golf balls, so they sound and feel like the balls you hit off the fairway. Golf Launchpad's tethered ball has been designed to reproduce the impact-physics of a free ball to perfection. This means that you feel and hear the thwack of your irons and the ping of your woods just as you would on the fairway. This is called TruFeel and it is the subject of several patent applications. This has been engineered and robot tested for accuracy. After all, Electric-Spin's other business is building driving robots for the golf industry! Use all the clubs in your bag, or if you're restricted by ceiling height, substitute a shorter club for a longer one (most people can swing a 6-iron safely with 8 foot/2.3m ceilings), and enjoy the full-game from - driving to putting. Technical info: Q: What are the system requirements for Golf Launchpad (PC Version)? A: Golf Launchpad is a USB device compatible with Windows XP/2000/ME/98 and with Mac OS X. Q: Can I use Golf Launchpad with my laptop?A: With the PC version yes, most laptops just plug-and-play; however you may need to use a powered USB hub with very few laptop models. Q: Do I need a high ceiling to swing?A: Most people can swing a 6 iron safely in their home if they have standard 8 foot ceilings. Always check before swinging properly. Of course, a higher ceiling means more room to swing, right up to a driver if you have 10 feet. With an 8 foot ceiling, you can still get the pleasure of playing realistic golf by substituting an iron for a driver: Just turn on Power Shot in Tiger Woods to compensate for the lower clubhead speed of an iron and still get 300 yards off the tee! Q: Can I putt with Golf Launchpad? A: You most certainly can! With our custom engineered turf, putting feel is pure, yet you can hit irons and woods with confidence and comfort. The Result Golf Launchpad is a world-class golf simulation system with inimitably authentic feel and accuracy, and superb shot precision. Play without compromise on the best courses, anywhere, anytime. Launch your game! Golf Launcher Product Video GenerateFrame("Golf Launchpadps2_flv.flv") Product From Prezzybox
