Why use a BirdieBall?
BirdieBall is all about enabling golf to be played in places other than just at the golf course. Now the true feel and flight of a golf ball is captured in a practice golf ball that only travels 40 yards. You can take it to the park, or even use it in your garden. It's great practice as well as fun to simply make up your own course through your local park. Who knows maybe you can invent your own BirdieBall game.

How does the StrikePad work?
The StrikePad is quite simple. It is a cambered, flexible polymer spring. The BirdieBall practice golf ball is placed toward the front where there is a gap between the pad and the ground. Upon swinging down and through, the pad deflects downward - it simulates taking a divot. One of the important aspects of the golf swing, when hitting with an iron, is the downward motion at impact. When hitting with a fairway wood, place the BirdieBall on the level part of the StrikePad and use a more sweeping motion - avoiding taking a divot. The flex in the StrikePad allows for deflection and rebound at impact. It happens in the blink of an eye.
BirdieBalls practice golf balls travel about 40 metres with a 5 iron. Add or take away about 1 or 2 yards per iron. of course, hitting with or against the wind will change these distances. Using driver and the VelocityTee, greater distances can be achieved. Want to go long? How about trying to beat the world record set by ReMax World Long Driving Champion Mike Dobbyns of 71 metres!
How does the BirdieBall work?
The non-dimpled surface combined with the straight sides resist flight. The radius of the leading edge and the aerodynamic hole through the centre encourages flight and lift. The oscillation between the two as the BirdieBall rotates from air brake to airfoil makes the turbine sound. The lifting aspects help it hang in the air; the braking aspects reduce the distance it travels. The combination of the two makes it a short flight, long hang-time device.
Can I hit my driver and fairway woods?
You bet. You have a number of options. With a fairway wood you can simply hit the BirdieBall straight off the grass or StrikePad. To simulate teeing the ball up for a fairway wood, hang the edge of the BirdieBall off the ledge created by the shoulder of the StrikePad and away you go. This system of teeing the ball up on the StrikePad ledge works for drivers as well. Second option is to tee one BirdieBall up on top of another. This is the perfect height for today's oversized drivers. The bottom ball will just roll along the ground. The best option is to make use of the VelocityTee set. The VelocityTee set is designed by BirdieBall Inc specifically for BirdieBall. Each set includes a BirdieBall and two tees - one for oversize drivers, the other for fairway woods.
