Backspin: Our ‘first’ reaction to the legendary Hammer X driver infomercial

Welcome to Backspin, a video series where’s equipment editors Jonathan Wall and myself, Andrew Tursky, watch nostalgic golf videos for the first time in years and record our reactions.

Last week, we watched the hilarious infomercial for the Alien Shot Saver wedge, which is one of the most unique wedge designs ever. In case you missed it, make sure to check it out here.

This week, in the video at the top of the story, we watch another certified classic: the Hammer X driver informercial, featuring six-time long drive champion Jack Hamm. The video is so 90s it hurts, and it brought back some great memories. Hopefully you enjoy watching this infomercial breakdown as much as we enjoyed filming it.

Make sure to tune in next week to Backspin for another trip down memory lane. In the meantime, check out our latest Fully Equipped podcast below.
