What is it?

As the game of golf continues to grow worldwide, there are more and more selections of just about anything golf related. From hundreds of grip options, tons of club manufacturers, and nearly an endless amount of accessories. Retrievers are no different as there are all kinds of options for golfers to choose from. The majority of retrievers consist of a traditional telescopic pole coupled with a grabbing/scooping mechanism. However there is no good idea that cannot be improved on. The Ball Rescue
is an out-of-the box ultra compact golf retriever without a telescopic pole. The base of the scoop comes with a unique design that enables the golfer to attach a golf club or flagpole mimicking a traditional telescopic pole.

Testing:

We put the Ball Rescue retriever to the test by performing 3 days of testing. Day one the testers took the device on the course for 18 holes unfortunately only a few golfers hit it in the drink. On day two we changed up our approach and added some beers to increase our likelihood of errand shots which had unintendedly consequences of the group playing even better. With testing not going as expected we ended up grabbing a few range buckets and had the testers chip into three different scenarios; water, muddy conditions and the bush. With our testing we wanted to find out two things. One, does the scooper design tightly secure the ball for easy retrieval in different conditions? Two, how secure is the unique flagstick attachment design and how far can it reach.

Results:

The scoop design was effective at grabbing the balls from all three conditions and especially well in soft mud. The unique attachment design securely fastened the flagstick and or golf club. Using a 45 inch driver and a standard flagpole that measured 7 feet in length; we where able to retrieve a high percentage of balls. Obviously the longer the shaft the higher chance at retrieving your ball however you probably wont reach the one in the middle of the lake.

My concluding thoughts…


Even great golfers are not immune to losing a few balls in the drink from time to time. That’s where the humble golf ball retriever comes in to its own. The problem is most retrievers are bulky and take up too much space in a golf bag. The Ball Rescue design is not only effective at retrieving balls but does it in a sleek compact fashion. Overall, the Ball Rescue retriever is a keeper and a must try for all golfers.
