Does the course need any modifications?
No. So grab a FlingStick and liberate one today.
Can I play alongside traditional golfers?
Absolutely. Even in the same foursome.
Do I need a special golf ball to play?
No. A standard golf ball is all you need.
How far will my FlingShot go?
Far, really far, or really really far. Over 100 yards within 5 minutes of using your FlingStick, but with some practice, strength, and skill, over 200 yards is certainly on the table. Hard-core athletes have been known to bomb it 250+ yards.
But how accurate will it be?
Very. Compared to an average golfshot, you will generally find it much easier to keep your FlingShots straight and on the fairway. But if you really enjoy being in the deep woods maybe this isn’t the game for you.
How does pace of play compare to traditional golf?
FlingGolfers tend to play quicker than traditional golfers, especially beginners. One “club,” more accuracy, no practice swings, etc. But feel free to play in the same foursome as traditional golfers if you want.
Can I take a few steps before my shot?
Yes. For maximum distance, it’s actually essential. Take a few steps back from where the ball lies and release the ball before reaching this spot.
How do I grip the FlingStick?
For full distance FlingShots we recommend a baseball grip, with no interlocking of fingers. For flop shots, we recommend a grip with hands apart for more control. For putting, we recommend hands apart with hands positioned as on a hockey stick. For more info on swing techniques, go here.
How do I keep score, and what are the rules of FlingGolf?
The fewer the FlingShots, the better the score. Sound familiar? The scoring in FlingGolf is very similar to traditional golf, but the rules are much simpler. Another way to look at it is that if you got rid of all the annoying golf rules that most people don’t follow, you’d get FlingGolf.
