STORY OF CHUCKER GOLF
Chucker Golf was specifically created for the benefit of those persons who, due to a physical limitation, cannot swing a golf club effectively. Born from a generous heart, Chucker Golf has grown into a Sport for all of us; adults or children, young or old, athletes, non-athletes, disabled or abled. With few exceptions, we can all enjoy this fast growing outdoor activity with friends, family, or as a self-challenging test of our own skills
THE SPORT OF CHUCKER GOLF
Chucker Golf is Golf as defined in the Rules of Golf, “A sport wherein a player plays a ball from the Teeing Ground into the cup in successive strokes.” With a few “Local Rules” to accommodate securing the golf ball in the Chucker Cup at the playing end of the Golf Chucker, a Chucker Golfer is subject to all the traditional Rules of Golf.
Chucker Golf is played using a Golf Chucker that catapults a golf ball up to 150 yards in some cases or even farther in a few instances using an overhanded motion similar to a serve in the Sport of Tennis. The average Chucker Golfer gets distances in the 110 –135 yard range.
Once a player gets within approach distance of the green, the Golf Chucker is gripped in a position for an underhanded motion. From a lob, pitch, chip shot or putt, the underhand stroke can produce results virtually identical to approach shots with conventional golf clubs.
Playing the Forward Tees at regulation length golf courses or the regular tees at Executive courses, a Chucker Golfer can play to the official scorecard for the course being played that particular day.
No Sport has ever produced as even a playing field as Chucker Golf. Old or young, strong or weak, athletic or non-athletic, disabled or fit, all Chucker Golfers have an opportunity to score extremely well in this newest of Outdoor Sports.
Chucker Golf plays right alongside conventional golf in every way. A group of four players could be playing Golf and/or Chucker Golf together with the same friendly competition so often seen on many golf courses throughout the world.
