Do Illegal Clubs Really Lower Your Score? (Video)

This is just a fun video to watch!

You've heard the claims for game improvement clubs that violate the Rules of Golf. Rick Shiels has tested a number of them in other videos. In this one he takes a full bag of them and sees if they'll really let him shoot a lower score.

A few quick notes:
  • Since Rick didn't have anything between a hybrid (that swingless club) and the wedges, he didn't really have clubs to cover every shot. Still, he scored pretty well.
  • The putter isn't technically illegal but it does give you a real advantage when aiming. Please note that despite that advantage, you won't sink any more putts than normal if you can't read the greens!
  • You have to love that straight golf ball. If you've ever wondered why the golf ball is under such scrutiny by the ruling bodies, this video should answer all of your questions.
I hope you also noticed how that "sandpaper wedge" tore up a Pro V1 with only one shot. It just goes to show that there's a price to every gain you get in golf.

Enjoy this video, folks. These are things that will NEVER be legal under the Rules of Golf... and that's probably a good thing.
