Zero Friction ZFT Maxx 3-Prong TeesOAK BROOK TERRACE, Illinois — Zero Friction™ made a name for itself in the golf industry in 2005 when it created the 3-prong and 4-prong Performance Tee. Golfers had not seen anything like it at the time.

“We eliminated 66% of the tee surface coverage to the ball which enabled more ball to club face at impact and increased feel,” said Zero Friction President John Iacono. “When tested at Golf Labs we proved the ball traveled 5 yards further and had 50% less dispersion.”

The unique invention significantly reduced the contact area between the tee and ball by 66%, leading to longer, straighter drives.

alt(Andrew Foscarin/Golf Canada Magazine) — When you purchase a new car, it comes with a warranty. Ditto when you buy a TV. The same applies for a couch, appliance and even a smartphone too. But why not golf? After doling out countless dollars to fill and upgrade our golf bags, shouldn’t we be offered some protection on the equipment we use and invest in? Well, for Golf Canada members, there is.

Launched in 2015, the Golf Canada Equipment Identification & Retrieval System was developed to reunite golfers with lost gear. Through the simple use of labels, all equipment — including clubs, headcovers, rangefinders and even your cell phone — can now be easily recovered should it ever escape your possession on the golf course.

It’s called a “Stimpmeter” in honor of inventor Edward S. Stimpson and in a nice bit of serendipity, the device traces its origins back to storied Oakmont Country Club, site of this season’s second major. No matter how much golfers bellyache during the week, the ramp, slightly less than 2 inches wide, will have the last word on how fast the greens are running.
