Have you heard of Yeti Golf? Well, if you are anything like us, the first time we came across Yeti was on social media. Yeti Golf is a part of Shark Attack Golf. Shark Attach Golf/Yeti prides themselves on bringing affordable fun products to the market. We reached out to Yeti to learn more – and just everything about the company yells Golf Starz. If this quote from Shark Attack’s website doesn’t scream Golf Starz then I don’t know what to tell you…”Music on the tee box and in the golf cart is encouraged as long as it’s not country”
So you may be asking yourself, can a driver designed for Long Drive competitions actually game on the course? Can an average golfer use a driver designed to add distance, and benefit from it? Now, before the internet police decide to come after us, we know not all the drivers from Yeti are “street” legal, so save your comments for another time. As we have always said, one of the best things about golf is gripping and ripping. When you are messing around with your boys, why not have some fun? Well we wanted to put this to the test. Yeti sent us the Yeti Original
Here was our set up:
Head: Yeti Original 8 Degrees
Shaft: Enzo Zone Your 6
Grip: Golf Pride TOUR WRAP 2G
First reaction – the set up is definitely a little different than what I was used to. The loft is a little bit lower than my current set up of 9.5 degrees. While I currently game a stiff shaft, the Enzo was a little bit stiffer than I was used to and the set up was a little more up and down. Lastly, the face of the Yeti is groove-less. I have been golfing for a long time and have never seen a driver face like this. So, in full disclosure, it did take some cuts at the range to dial the driver in.
Pictures of the club face:
So all that being said – once I was able to dial the driver in, I did see some more distance right away. On average, I am in the 250/260 range when it comes to drives and right away I was pushing the high end of my range. I was surprised with how much distance I was getting. The launch angle off the initial strike was a little low, but for a guy who skys everything, this was an added bonus. I was able to keep the ball low, which allowed for some extra roll, yards after the catch. Another added bonus was the sound. When you connected you knew right away. I feel like a lot of drivers on the market now have almost muted sound on impact…not the Yeti. Now I know why they talk about #Yetibombs. Lastly, I felt like I was able to control the ball off the face pretty well. So all in all, it was fun to game a long drive driver, plus the driver quickly became the talk of course. Everyone wanted to try it and next thing we knew, we were having a drive off on the range. That alone was worth the price of admission.
It’s simple, golf is expensive. We all know it and since most of Shark Attack/Yeti driver heads clock in around $150 bucks, you could get a full set up for right around $200 bucks. Golf should be more fun and this club does not disappoint. Give them a follow on social media and check out their clubs. Long drives are not just for John Daly and Maurice Allen any more. Bring some #Yetibombs down on your home club.
