SKLZ Smash Bag Swing Aid Well looky here -- it's a punching bag for golfers. Mike Tyson, eat your heart out. (Or somebody's ear.)

This wasn't designed by some fly-by-night golf gadget medicine man either. Rick Smith has a good reputation. He's worked with Phil Mickelson, Lee Janzen, and even Jack Nicklaus.

The idea of the bag isn't to pound the daylights out of it and build up your golf muscles, but rather to teach you the proper clubface position at impact. Just take your normal swing and then take a look at the angle of the target map. If you made a correct swing, the bag will remain aligned. If not, the bag will retain the depression and show you what you did wrong.

I'm not a big fan of this one, although I can see where it might be fun at a party. Of course, I don't think it would make it very long before it was smashed into pieces.

Also, make sure you are aware you are just buying an empty bag. The bag is not filled with anything. You are supposed to fill it with towels or your laundry. So from that standpoint, I can see where it might make a nice hamper. You'll have to see my full review at ZipLaundry.com.
