A Discrete Golf Club That Plays Your Music

Who Wants to Golf in Peace Anyway?

Despite notable advancements on the golf course, the game’s practitioners continue to face one everlasting source of technological vexation: How to blast their Biggie Smalls and Slipknot without having to lug a giant Jamaican sound system everywhere they go.

Enter the SoundCaddy, an unobtrusive wireless speaker that looks like a golf club. It sits in one’s bag, poking its little, detachable speaker head out, playing tunes through whatever Bluetooth device is around. Plus it serves as a power bank with two USB ports and one mini-USB port, charging players’ various cells and e-pads as needed. The thing is also weatherproof, able to endure the swelter of Mount Merapi or the frigid icebergs of Uummannaq, in our own, made-up estimation of its capabilities.

It’s at this point that it feels imperative to quote the press release as saying it will also help “lighten things up while attracting millennials and curious participants to give it a try," in their own, made-up estimation of its capabilities.

The device features a brushed aluminum shell, rubberized body and modular shaft. All of which is to say, we’re feeling pretty turned on right now by the Sound Caddy.

It also features an internal bass radiator that will go tragically underutilized, cranking out a continual pageant of Dave Matthews and Maroon 5 songs. As well as at home, in Walker’s hands while he takes practice swings in his tiny shorts and Cody finishes the last Natty Light.

The SoundCaddy is $129 and available online.

Hadley Tomicki lives in Los Angeles. He is probably going nowhere on the 10 Freeway this very second.
