It’s not very often you come across a re-birth of a game that you love, that you’d really want to play. Usually the original is by far superior. I came across this new take on golf that I thought looks like a blast, and could pique my interest for a day on the course without clubs to switch things up (putter aside). So what is Whing Golf? Well.. It’s really golf, without the clubs, all you need is a “whinger”, a ball and a putter to play any normal course near you. Here’s a video to see how you tee-off:
How do you play? Simple, you ‘throw’ the ball from the tee and fairway using your whinger – a custom made golf ball thrower. This piece of equipment has been custom-made for golf balls and can help you throw the ball up to 180 yards. Hopefully, this version of the game is easier on your wrists, however something tells me it’s harder on your rotator cuffs. When you finally get close to the green, you can toss the ball on the green, and once there you can putt the ball to finish the hole (sorry yippers). The whinger make its incredibly easy to toss the ball accurately and straight as side spin is difficult to apply. Check out there website for more information or to get Whing Golf at your club. Cool stuff!
