About

What is Golfchipchallenge?

Golfchipchallenge, or simply GCC, is a new fun game and training method for what we believe is thé most challenging part of golf – the short game. 

Challenge your friends or even your child/parent in a game where rules and targets allow for two different golf-handicapers to compete ageinst each other. 

Serious practice and serious fun

“Play to learn”

 GCC has so much to offer! In Scandinavian countries, they focus a lot on the philosophy of “play to learn” and the Golfchipchallenge game allows for just that; having fun whilst learning effectively at the same time.

Please take a moment and listen to the inventor himself, PGA GolfPro René Wiesel.

 In my 25 years as a teaching professional I have seen hundreds of products come and go – all kinds of gadgets designed to improve your golfing skills, right there in your living room. Let me tell you- Firstly, I believe that in order for a golf training product to work – you have to actually include a real golf club and real golf balls as well as a realistic surface to practice on, like grass. Anything else really has not got anything to do with golf at all. Secondly, I believe that the reason no current training aid has had success, is because it has no consequence to miss a shot, you just take another ball from the bucket and do it again till you get it right. That type of practicing is simply inefficient and has absolutely no resemblance to the actual game at all. Have you ever seen Tiger Woods call a do-over after a missed shot?

With the GCC we have managed to create a set of rules which enables two golfers of different level of skills to compete against each other, like a parent and a child. Please notice that while you are having fun, you are still forced to take every shot seriously, with the GCC every shot counts, just like in a real round of golf; there are no do-overs.

Thank you for supporting us.

Why, How and What

The idea for Golf Chip Challenge came to me one late winter’s night a few years back. My son Niclas, who was still living at home at the time, later told me that I suddenly came into the living room dressed only in my undies and obviously still half asleep. I pulled out some paper and a pen and was drawing something for about 5 minutes and then went back to sleep. The next morning he told me what had happened, showed me the drawing and asked me what it was. I looked at it for a few minutes and it all came back to me.

The previous day I had been working on planning the upcoming golf season for my junior players in the golf club where I worked.

I wanted to develop their ability to perform better under pressure and use their creativity to see the possibilities in a tough challenge instead of seeing a difficult shot. Especially the short game, chipping and short pitch shots around the green had my attention as parts of the golf game that require some of the greatest skills in a golfer. The difference between a total failure and a genius shot, is paper thin when it comes to the short game – that is why so many golfers duff, scull or hit it fat when the pressure is on.

My drawing was a small tennis court, 6 meters by 3 meters (20 feet by 10 feet) with a 30 centimeters (11¾ inches) net in the middle. One player placed on each side of the net so that every shot had to count – making it a game. I thought it was a good idea to have a target to hit in order to score point. The target size should be determined by how good a golfer you are – the better you are, the smaller the target should become in order to uphold full focus. In order to get a better feel for how long the ball had to carry, the player had to walk over to the other side of the net and place his target and then walk back again and hit the shot. This helps the player to get a better preshot routine that can be easily transferred for use out on the course.

On a website for arts and crafts I found some parts that could create the court and the net. I had it all shipped to my mother who kindly sewed it all together according to my directions.

For the next golf season I had everything ready and I started using it with the juniors as a part of a spring training camp where they slept in tents on the golf course. The first evening I had the little “tennis court” ready and told them about the simple rules and the game was on. We trained every morning before playing 18 holes and trained again after playing.

The positive feedback I got on the game, and the players’ positive development in the short game during that season gave me the idea to get the game out to more player and juniors.

I found a local company that could make my game more refined and produced on a larger scale, then I wrote a letter to all golf clubs in Denmark and gave them a month to decide whether they would be interested in buying a set of Golf Chip Challenge for their juniors. The result was very positive and app. 25 clubs and about 70 private golfers responded and ordered a set.

Now I want to get Golf Chip Challenge out to all golfers and juniors worldwide and that is why I am on Kickstarter. I hope many many golfers will back the project and become better in the short game in a fun and very educational way… playing to learn

All the best

why playing Golfchipchallenge will make you a much better allround golfer !

Want you lower your golfscore? Here is why playing the Golfchipchallenge will make you a much better allround golfer:

Apart from the obvious – the intense practice of your short-game, you will be practicing something much more important, your pre-shot-routine(PSR). This is probably the most important foundation for all good golfers, yet it is maybe the least understood and practiced part, amongst amateur golfers. Many, when asked about their personal pre-shot routine, don’t even know what it is.

If you watch the professionals, they all have their own unique way of getting the job done. Tiger Woods has always used the same pre-shot routine in his game, whether it is the masters or a pro-am – he never changes his pre-shot. Many may remember Sergio Garcias re-griping routine as a part of his pre-shot routine, thank God he changed it. 

 Simply put, the PSR is about 3 things:

 See it

 Feel it 

Trust it/Commit to it

See it: 

You have to have an exact plan or vision for your shot to even have a chance to success. The more your mind is focused on the task ahead, the bigger likelihood of the body executing it. With the Golfchipchallenge, we provide you with an obstacle, the net, and with a target. This makes it very easy to see what the task is. 

Feel it:

 A good practice swing to create a suitable balance, rhythm and speed. By placing the target before every shot, you have to pace the distance and thereby know exactly how far you must carry the ball. The position is different every time, and ensures that your skills for distance control and focus will be greatly increased.

 Trust it/Commit to it: 

Once you have ‘programmed’ your body for the upcoming shot, you have to trust your feelings and commit to every shot. Staying focused on the task at hand and not give in to feelings such as anxiety and tension is the key to success. 

 So in conclusion, 

the pre-shot routine is as different and unique as a fingerprint, but should always contain the 3 above mentioned stages. By doing a physical move that corresponds to a specific feeling in the brain, we create the right setting for a free and uninhibited swing; giving the ball the best chance to finding the bottom of the cup. On the golf course, many amateurs fail to take the good shots, simply because they do not understand how to use a pre-shot routine. By playing the Golfchipchallenge, you learn how to implement your pre-shot routine to all your golf shots and thereby becoming an allround better golfer.

Our vision and the future

Lets think back in time, when the game of golf was first played on a windy links course in the eastern part of Scotland, there where no driving range or practice greens. You would just go out and play your round of golf.

 In most parts of the world today it is unlikely not to have any practice areas where you can work on your technique. Think about what that has done for the game of golf on a larger scale. If we get backed in this kickstarter-campaign, the future goal is that Golfchipchallenge will be a natural integrated part of every golfclub, but the big difference is that when you play GCC its a game, not just practice.

 Today you can become worldchampion in long driving, in a few years there hopefully will be worldwide tournaments in Golfchipchallenge and maybe also a wold championship. When we reach that goal, the consequences will be that the short game in golf in general will be liftet to a whole new level. So be a pioneer in this fun new game and maybe you will become the first world champion.

 thank´s for your support

Why Kickstarter and why we need your support

We need $50,000 to fund the project and assure that the Golfchipchallenge game is properly marketed and sold to the golfing world. Here is how we will spend the money: 

  • Setting up the production line
  • Manufacturing – We will need funding to manufacture the first run of Golfchipchallenge units.
  • THE APP (online community) – We will need funding to place the order for the cool APP that comes along with the game.
  • PGA Merchandise Exposition – In order to make this project a complete success, we need to introduce the Golfchipchallenge concept to the golf world. A portion of the funding will allow us visit the PGA Exposition in Orlando, Florida in January 2016. It’s the largest exposition of golf related products in the world. If funded, we will be there to introduce GCC in the New Product Zone that is the most popular area on the Show Floor. We will get introduced to sales brokers, retail buyers, PGA professionals, and lots of fans of the game of golf. This is where all our hard work pays off and the GCC community of active players will grow from day one and make our APP features like “world ranking” worth participating in.

Shipping Information:
 GCC will be available worldwide. To minimize shipping costs, our rewards will either ship from the U.S. or from Denmark, depending on your - our supporter's – location. Since local regulations vary, please note that we cannot be held responsible for additional sales taxes or import/customs fees added by your country.

Deliveries to the U.S.: Shipping costs in the U.S. are $10 USD. For most deliveries inside the U.S., there is no additional fee besides shipping costs. Since we have a shipping hub in the united states, for deliveries the local sales tax applies. Please note that sales tax is not included and must be added in line with local regulations.

Deliveries to the European Union: Shipping costs in the European Union is $10 USD. For our supporters from the European Union, please note that VAT is not included. So please add an extra of 19% (VAT Germany) to your pledge for deliveries within the European Union. 

Deliveries to regions outside U.S. Canada or the European Union: Shipping costs is approximately $25 USD. Please note there may be extra import costs/customs/taxes to pay upon delivery, depending on your location. 

If you have a question about shipping, handling or local charges, please don’t hesitate to contact us! If you have forgotten to add VAT/sales tax to your pledge, you can just raise it as long as the Kickstarter project is live.

Risks and challenges

Any new venture or innovation includes an element of risk, and ours is no different.

We are a strong and experienced team of manufacturing, Sports accessories and business professionals and have carefully evaluated and mitigated all foreseeable risks and challenges, but may face unforeseen challenges. Although we have already successfully designed, created and tested several prototypes of the Golfchipchallenge game, and each of the final games will be inspected by us in Denmark, we have not yet started serial production and will only do so once we reach the next stage of our project. Our delivery dates, as outlined in the campaign, are based on careful planning and our manufacturing experience, but may change. We will ensure that we keep each of our supporters fully updated. Conversely, it is important that all backers keep us updated of their address before we ship the final rewards. Any reshipping will require additional payments.
