UroClub Makes It Big Time
By Kickntrue on 10/21/09
We've been talking about the UroClub for over 2 years (here and here *w/ video)- but it finally made it big last night on ABC's Shark Tank. Shark Tank is a slow where entrepreneurs pitch their idea to investors and then most of the time the investors tell the pitchmen how stupid their idea is and how it will fail.

Well- UroClub got it's moment in the sun.. and one of the investors bought into it! I personally have no clue what they were thinking- it's purely a novelty item, but I guess we may see it in stores soon, thanks to the success from the show.

I've met the man behind UroClub at a golf show a year ago in Las Vegas and it was one of the most uncomfortable interactions of my life. I shook his hand smiling, telling him how hilarious and awesome I thought his product was. He was greatly offended and informed me that he was a Urologist and this product was an absolutely serious solution for a terrible problem facing golfers. I tried to skulk into the mass of show patrons and never see the guy again. Awkward!

Why not just use the UroTree? There's 100+ of them lining the holes of every course I play.

i cant even believe that they would put this on the show? how redonkulous!
Steve Pate says:
If you buy the UroClub and the FecoClub together, do you get a discount?

@ Carlos Franco - lol that's great. I'd say yes

Gives new meaning to a #1 iron and the #2 iron. Also, possibly the Pee wedge.

Personally, I think the guy is a self-diagnosing proctologist. He's got his head up somewhere dark if he thinks this is really gonna catch on and make him 50 bucks per uroclub. LOL

I'm with Ben Crane...use the trees. If you happen to be on a links course...just use a pot bunker. The inventor is cracked if he thinks he has anything but a novelty item on his hands.
JCaus says:
@ Carlos Franco almost everytime im on the course i think i bought some fecoclubs!

LOL wtf...
kidputter says:
The club is selling for around $24.95. He sold 70% of the company for around $25,000. He invested around $300,000. At this point in the game, he doesn't CARE how many get used. He just wants to get them sold for the holidays. $16 profit. $4.80 per club is his cut.

it is a great way to get alcohol on the course
activesense says:
I thought Uroclub was going to be a club that hit in metres and not yards (euro??..oh - never mind). Maybe they could call it Tee-Pee or something to avoid confusion. They should just take some Flomax or Avodart before they tee off, or tie a knot in it until the turn.

I had this idea a few years back, but i was going to call it the "relief wedge"!!!

Seriously. you snooze, you lose. I could have made tens of dollars.
