Golf swings come in all shapes and sizes. Some are fast, some are slow. Some are flat, some are upright. But one thing all great swings share is a rhythm or cadence that includes a backswing, downswing and follow through that produces the desired result of a square strike of the golf ball.
For over twenty years, Ernie Els has been known as “The Big Easy” due to his imposing physical stature along with his fluid golf swing. Els generates tremendous swing speed and accuracy from a beautiful rhythm that connects all of his efforts into one graceful movement.
For many of us, it can be quite difficult to develop a consistent tempo in our golf swing as we get stuck in analyzing our individual positions and movements. By the time we get to putting all the parts of the swing together, we’re lost in a sea of swing thoughts instead of focusing on just hitting the ball.
It’s easy to lose the “feel” of the swing when you’re in that state over-analysis, especially during the middle of a round. However, there’s a simple solution to breaking free of swing-thought overload that can help you find your rhythm and stay in the moment.
On course music is becoming an accepted and popular element of modern, casual golf that can also improve your performance. Music is a great distraction in a game that requires a great deal of patience and concentration. It’s also a great stress reliever for those of us who might get a bit wrapped up in our games. All you need is a mobile device to access music and a wireless (Bluetooth) speaker.
I recently tested a Bluetooth speaker made specifically for use on the course called Golfjams. There are hundreds of wireless speakers available, but there are many benefits to having one that was built with the needs of a golfer in a mind.
Firstly, Golfjams is incredibly simple and easy to use on the golf course because it comes with two different clips that make it easy to attach to just about any golf cart. By having the speaker mounted to the golf cart instead of having it bounce around in one of the storage compartments, you’re guaranteed better sound, longer device life and a lot less chance of the speaker falling out of your cart.
Pairing Golfjams with a mobile device is also very easy. Just briefly press the play button on the speaker and Golfjams will search for potential devices to pair with. Once connected, Golfjams even comes with a mounting clip to attach your mobile device directly to the cart. This is another nice benefit that helps assure you won’t lose your mobile device or speaker either during or after the round.
The device comes with an ingress protection rating of IPX5, which means you don’t have to worry about exposure to rain or other weather-related elements. This is a well-built, sturdy device that was built for the elements on the golf course.
Another major highlight of this product is the advanced lithium battery can provide 15 hours of playing time. Compared to many other wireless speakers, this is an exceptionally long battery life. However, it’s great to have, especially during a long round. Even if you forget to charge Golfjams between rounds, this extended battery life will keep you and your tunes in business.
Although the device is roughly 2″x2″x7″, its double 5W loudspeakers produce high quality stereo sound for such a small unit. Even played at the higher volume levels, Golfjams produces a clean sound without any excess distortion. You can easily adjust the volume directly on the speaker itself or through your mobile device. And since Golfjams can be mounted your golf cart, you’ll be able to hear your music as far away from your cart as you prefer.
The product comes with speaker with loop Velcro bottom, universal device holder, USB charging cable, 3.5mm audio cable, USB battery charger and two cart clips. It also comes with a loop Velcro clip for mobile devices, 2 poker chip ball markers and a protective carrying bag.
Golfjams provides a great way to connect music with golf. Combining the two might not bring you the same rhythm and tempo as a PGA professional, but it can be a great combination for those of us who would like to enjoy the experience of a round of golf even more.
