“He’s got about 350 yards left, he’s going to hit about a 5-iron, it looks like, don’t you think? He’s got a beautiful backswing…that’s – oh, he got all of that one! He’s gotta be pleased with that! The crowd is just on its feet here. He’s a Cinderella boy.” Bill Murray has been the face of many movies from Ghostbusters, The Aquatic Life of Steve Zissou, Kingpin, and even the face of The Chive. It doesn’t matter what he does though, nobody will forget his role as Carl Speckler in Caddyshack. What was it that made Caddyshack so amazing? It could have been the incredible humor and Rodney Dangerfield playing the role of a lifetime but Gadgets 4 Guys thinks it was something else. The game of golf had always been considered a gentlemen’s game until the movie flipped that concept on it’s head. We thought that it would be a long time before we saw something flip the game of golf on it’s head until we came across Swingbyte.
Swingbyte in action
Swingbyte works by attaching the device to the shaft of your club (no snickers please) which actually connects to your smartphone or tablet via Bluetooth. The club then sends a signal back to the app and you have a full diagnostic work up of your swing and everything that is wrong with it. You gain a full 360 degree view of the swing along with impact, angle of attack, and the club face angle which can help a lot with correcting a swing. You won’t need to go into the golf shop and have a cheesy conversation with their local pro that will likely belittle your golf game. After he makes you buy a driver that is about twice as much as you can afford when you could save yourself time, humility, and peace of mind. The app has a full diagnostic dashboard which displays all of the key statistics you might need to analyze your own swing. We didn’t even get down to the nitty gritty of what this golf gadget can produce but we are comfortable saying it is a lot. You might not ever be half the man that Carl Speckler was but you can flip the game of golf on your side. Click here for image source and where to buy.
