The inspiration for this thread came to me when my friend sent me what I thought to be a serious email regarding some business. To my surprise, when I clicked on the link it was a YouTube video of my favorite golf infomercial of all time; the HAMMER driver. I always laugh out loud when I see or hear it, and I haven't seen it on the Golf Channel in a while. So I thought to myself; I will share it on MyGolfSpy. Did I mention that this is Hands Down, my favorite golf infomercial of all time. 

 

Click here to want to watch the VIDEO. Please feel free to share your favorite Hammer infomercial memory with us.

 

As a former golf pro, my fondest memory is of me sitting in the golf shop at 6:00 am. I am enjoying a cup of coffee and the peaceful quiet of the early morning hours. When I turn on the television and hear "POW" "BOOM" "BAM" and I just knew it was going to be a great day.

First time I’ve seen the Hammer in-person! Played in the Sim today, and they had one in there for folks to use. Hideous, and the shaft was like a rubber hose.

I just love their infomercial. It is pure awesome. It always makes me smile.

 

I have never tried one of their clubs. How do you like them? Did you pick up any yards using the Hammer Driver? What driver did you use before the Hammer?

I have never seen this commercial - it is indeed as awesome as it has been described. Two things, first its good to finally find out what the guy that voice overs the monster truck ralley commercials does as his side gig. Something I've always wondered about. Secondly, I don't even know how to convey this thought using words. The yelling of pow, boom, wham, yah! with each drive. Priceless you have to watch this. Was that something they felt would help sell the driver? I would have loved to have been present at the table where this infomercial was being workshopped.

The yelling during the drives are my favorite part. This could become part of my range shot routine.

He has a gold necklace with a gold name plate that says HAMMER! I spot a new more awesome thing each time I look this over. Right hand in the air, I swear - if enough people knew the reference I think I would unbutton my polo to the last button and rock that necklace.

Let me tell you that do not need an excuse to unbutton that polo and rock some gold.

Do you like it?

Heck no, I have never even hit the thing. Proof that too many beers and an ipad with the eBay app is not a good thing. I will post some pictures of it at address when I get home tonight.

We passed a Hammer driver around on WRX for over a year lol. The only requirement was to post a video of "BOOM" or "POWWW". I love a liar on an infomercial and Jack Hamm is exactly that, he's never competed or confirmed his distances other that posting them on the X factor site. Brian Pavlet competed when Hamm supposedly set the records he claims to hold. He not any other LD pro has ever even seen Scamm in person
