BirdieBalls make golf practice easy & fun
The increase/decrease in distance when using other clubs will vary according to player skill and external forces like wind but the approximate difference in distance between irons is around 2 metres.

BirdieBalls – they look like a napkin ring but fly exactly like a golf ball. Unbelievable? When it was introduced the 40-odd thousand pros at the 2005 PGA Merchandise Show didn’t think so … they awarded it Best New Product!
It spins exactly like a golf ball, and feels like one too; it is heavy, it draws, it fades, it is serious practice, and it is fun. The BirdieBall is made of a super polymer, is incredibly durable and even floats.

This version of the StrikePad has the swingpath of the clubhead through the impact zone printed on it for both left and right handed players. This is an invaluable visual aid – beginners will see how the golf club should move through the hitting zone, more advanced players can use the swing path template to reinforce their proper technique while advanced players can use the StrikePad for practice as well as to instruct beginners.

BirdieBalls have been around a while now, so it is possible that your golfer may have seen them, but have they tried them?
They are a bit funny and non-golf ball looking until you get used to them and understand how they work. The key instruction to using them is that they must be set up on their end, i.e. standing up so the golf club will strike the cylinder walls. This allows them to be compressed properly and show the true ball flight.
Here is a great video you can get them to watch that explains a bit about the science (physics) behind how they work and shows them in action:
But the main benefit to having these is that they make golf practice more accessible. There’s a lot more opportunity to practice as it can be done in many more places and at more convenient times. A few sets in the backyard before or after work make getting regular practice much easier. Regular practice can sometimes expose underlying problems earlier and signal time for coaching. More often it provides a base which allows skill and confidence to develop and improve.
And that’s a great gift for any golfer.
