Weed Whacking Golf Driver – In The News!
WHAT EVERY BAD LIE NEEDS
Every yard counts when you’re on the golf course, and now there’s a new golf club that counts in every yard.
Just in time for Father’s Day, the Big Daddy Weed Whacking Golf Driver trims the grass with every swing.
John Buell, president of Big Daddy Golf, came up with the idea on the course one day when his playing partner’s ball was in the rough more than on the greens. Buell joked, “Man, you need a weed-eater golf club.” Everyone laughed but “the light bulb went off in our heads and the idea of the Weed Whacking Golf Driver was born.”
The club actually cuts grass with an electric motor powered by six AA batteries. It has a shaft length of 42 inches, head width of 7 inches, head height of 6 inches and weighs 1.35 pounds. It fits into any standard golf bag and looks like most oversized golf drivers.
The head of the club opens to reveal the weed cutter. A click of a button and the weed-whacking string spins into action. Done creating a better lie for the ball? Just close the head back up again and swing away.
The Big Daddy is available at www.bigdaddydriver.com. The Web site claims it’s the “funniest golf gift ever,” and it may be the only way to get some yardwork done by the golfer in the family.

Wacky products: Daddy of all string trimmers
The Big Daddy Driver – a functional, battery-operated string trimmer designed to look like an ordinary golf club – answers the question, “What doyou get for the golfer who has everything?”
The novelty gift was co-invented by Troy Nowell and Big Daddy Golf Founder John Buell after a game where nearly every one of Troy’s drives landed in a thick patch of grass. Of course, the golf gag gift is meant for laughs at recreational games and will smash to pieces if you try to tee off with it.
If, like me, you spaced on Father’s Day this year (I know, I know) you’ll need a practical, this-is-so-funny-you’ve-just-gotta-forgive-me gift to get you back in dad’s good graces. This may be just the thing !
WEED WHACKING GOLF DRIVER
This gizmo is for those golfers who take the game a bit too serious. The Big Daddy Driver is actually a grass trimmer disguised as a giant golf club. The bottom of the “club” flips open to reveal a bit of string that spins – a functioning weed cutter. The golf gadget is being marketed as a joke/gift.
FOR A REAL SLICE OF LIFE
Of the hundreds of golf gifts out there, many come with a bathroom connection. For instance, there’s a game called toilet golf, a roll of golf-themed toilet paper, a golf-decorated toilet seat. Thus, the following gift was met with genuine pleasure at GO! simply because it has nothing to do with sitting down.
A tireless PR toiler named Todd Brabender begins with this grabber: “Toby, Here’s some information for an interesting feature.” Todd then introduces the Big Daddy Weed Whacker Golf Club, part driver and part landscaping tool. “A practical product that is as fun to swing around at home as it is on the golf course,” writes Todd. It is, Todd goes on, “a stroke of genius” that can help any golfer “cut back” on the course. “It belongs in every golf bag and every garage — in the world.”
The president of the company that makes the Big Daddy, Todd explains, watched his playing partner hit into jungle-like rough time and again. The president joked, Man, you need a weed whacker golf club!! Happily for every person in the world, we now have one.
Question for Todd: What about a combo sand wedge and squirrel rifle?
Alot of people practice their golf swing in their yard and end up wacking their lawn due to a horrible swing. Whether you are Arnold Palmer or just some backyard hopeful, why not actually trim your lawn while practicing that swing. You know, on purpose and neatly.
The Big Daddy Driver looks like a large golf club, but it’s really a working weed whacking golf driver. It will fit inside your golf bag, so surprise your friends when your ball lands in the rough, by clearing the area and taking a swing. Runs on 6AA batteries.(Not sure how much weed wacking can be done with 6 AA’s, but I guess you’ll find out) Makes a great novelty golf gift for Christmas and you can be pretty sure they don’t already own one.
