Face it, you could barely slip a playing card between your feet and the ground on a vertical jump.

Of all the sports out there, golf is probably the one you need the most help with.

Surprisingly, this club even meets USGA guidelines. [PowerBilt via Link]

When it comes right down to it, putting is really at the core of a good golf game. The Argon Laser Putter helps give you an edge in that area with a three-laser targeting system. [Argon Putter via Link]
