The thing about golf is that it requires a lot of gear and equipment. When you go out on the course, you’ll need to have your golf bag, clubs, golf balls, ball marker, towels, tees, gloves, and many more. Now, carrying all these separate pieces of equipment can be inconvenient, especially when they’re not organized properly. Can you just imagine how troublesome it is to be rummaging through your things right in the middle of a game? Well, with the new FREESHOT, now you don’t have to. 

The FREESHOT is an all-in-one golf accessory that includes a golf ball holder, divot tool, tees, and custom ball markers, which are some of the most essential gears you will need while playing golf. Even better, it’s designed to attach to your waist, providing you with unparalleled practicality and convenience. If this sounds exactly what you are looking for, continue reading to know more about the FREESHOT.

Overview

Golf balls, tees, and ball markers are among the most important tools you should have on the green. Aside from your golf clubs, they are also among the gears you will use a lot. So it helps to have easy and fast access to them at all times. To do this, others store such items in a golf pouch or pocket. Some use hat clips for ball markers while others put their tees in their hair. 

While all these are perfectly fine, they aren’t exactly the most convenient way to carry your golf tools. Putting them inside your pockets, with or without a pouch, is uncomfortable. Bulging pockets may even affect your movement. On the other hand, hat clips aren’t very appealing. Plus, you don’t really want to put a tee that’s just been in the dirt or sand in your pockets or on your hair, right? So here’s where the FREESHOT comes in handy. 

The FREESHOT is designed to be worn on your hip, allowing you to make burden-free strokes and puts. And since it combines a golf ball holder, tees, ball markers, and even a divot tool, you won’t have to carry or buy other separate golf accessories. Meaning, you can save some money. 

In terms of price, the FREESHOT isn’t all that bad either. Priced at US$48, it’s in the same price range as the Delk 40041 and just a little pricier than the Golf Tool Set by Ascent. You can even get it at a much cheaper price if you catch its campaign on Kickstarter. Instead of US$48, Super Early Bird backers will only have to pay US$32 and US$34 for Early Bird backers.

Features

Customizable Ball Marker

The FREESHOT comes with a ball marker that you can customize. You can choose to engrave it with your initials or even a favorite catchphrase. This way it’ll stand out from the crowd. It’s also equipped with a powerful magnet to make sure it will stay put on your waist. 

Long and Short Tees Holders

One of the best things about the FREESHOT is its holders for both short and long tees. This way, your tees stay neatly stored on your hip and always ready when you need them. 

Exclusive Long Tee 

When you back the FREESHOT on Kickstarter, you will also receive an exclusive long tee. It is divided into two components: the top and bottom. It also has an inner magnet, which allows the top and bottom parts to go back together once the tee is struck. This makes it less likely to get lost or damaged compared to conventional tees such as wood, string, or plastic. 

Unfortunately, the FREESHOT does not include a short tee. But its holder is compatible with short tees from different companies. 

Divot Tool

When you’re out on the green, it’s common courtesy to use a divot tool to cover up your pitch marks. So the addition of a divot tool on the FREESHOT is actually perfect since you don’t have to carry around a separate divot tool ever again. Just slide it out from the side when you need it and put it back when you don’t. Its sharp edges are completely retractable, so you don’t have to worry about getting poked while it’s on your hip. 

Golf Ball Holder

What we like most about FREESHOT is its golf ball holder. If you are used to carrying your golf ball in your pockets, you know how a hassle it can be. But with FREESHOT, you can just put the ball in its slot, and it will stay there until you take it out again. This means you can set up and move more freely.

Multipurpose golf accessories aren’t new. In fact, there are plenty of those around. However, what makes FREESHOT different is the tools it combined. Putting together a divot tool, ball holder, tees, and ball marker is an excellent choice since they are among the most commonly used tools while playing golf. The Delk 40041, for instance, features a stroke counter, cleat tightener, divot tool, brush, ball marker, and bottle opener. 

On the other hand, there’s also the Golfer’s Golf Set by Ascent which has a stroke counter, divot tool, brush, ball marker, cleat tightener, club groove cleaner, bottle opener, screwdriver, golf tee holder, and golf ball holder. While it has most of what you need to play, this particular set comes in separate pieces. So it’s not very handy. It’s quite difficult to carry, too. That said, while the FREESHOT has fewer uses, it’s still more practical and easy to carry around. 

Design

Whenever we see products that are designed to clip on belts, pants, or skirts, we immediately consider their weight. If it’s too heavy, it’s more likely to fall off. Fortunately, the FREESHOT weighs only 89 grams or less than 0.2 pounds even with a golf ball on it. This means it is light enough to stay in place. Its light weight also means even kids or teens who are new to the sport can use it. 

Now, another thing we noticed about the FREESHOT is its variety of colors. You can choose from metal gray, black and white, rose gold, or black. All of them have a simple yet sleek design, helping them fit into anyone’s style. As a bonus, the FREESHOT comes with its own case pouch where you can conveniently store it after use. It’s small and fits in the palm of your hand, so rest assured it won’t take up too much space in your golf bag. 

Final Thoughts

Whether you’re a pro or a beginner, the FREESHOT is a great choice for a multipurpose golf accessory. By combining and storing four of the most commonly used tools on the course – and also the items most kept in pockets – this gear helps you feel and move freer. And who knows, maybe it can even help you play better.

Sure, there are other cheaper multipurpose golf accessories on the market with more uses. However, none of them are as handy, practical, and convenient as the FREESHOT. Just remember to wear it properly according to your handedness if you want to avoid injuries, scratches, or damage to your equipment.
