Tom's Featured Tip: Quarantined? Crocbox Your Way Through It!

For simplicity, all advice on actual swings or drills is provided from a right handed perspective.

Thanks for the feedback on the reading list in last week's newsletter! I sincerely hope that you all get a few good books read while you're cooped up.

This week I want to give a little more ink to a product that I've been recommending for some time now, The Crocbox .

If you are serious about improving your game, now is the time to get some work in on your full swing as well as your putting.

Unfortunately, a lot of you are now in quarantine, and probably will still be there until at least the first part of May. The silver lining to this storm cloud is that it's a great time to work on your game at home.

And you can work on both aspects of your game - full swing and putting - with a minimal amount of space.


The Crocbox , a Made in The USA product that I have been recommending for months, is perfect for full swing practice if you have an area in your yard where you can swing a club freely. I have one sitting in my basement that's going into my yard as soon as the weather becomes a little more consistent here in the Batavia NY area.

I'm placing it at the end of a 13' x 37' practice green that I'm installing in my back yard. I'll have the best of both worlds - a putting and chipping practice area, and a full swing practice area. I'll probably end up doing my putting lessons there too.

I'll put up a couple photo's when the project is completed, I can't wait!

I also plan on warming my full swing up at my Crocbox before I head out for a round of golf. It's fairly time consuming to get to a course and head to the range (if one is available) and warm up. If I stretch then get twelve swings in at home - that's my number for a pre round warmup - then do my normal stretching before the first tee, I'll be ready for my first drive and will have saved some time and a few bucks too.

The investment to install an outdoor putting green can be significant.

However, the Crocbox is affordable, and you can install it yourself. There's a do it yourself installation video and written instructions here: Crocbox Installation Instructions

I'm sold on it's functionality and it's durability. 45 seconds to set it up, less time to close it up, and it's not just for golf - but that's all I'm using it for.

It can also be used for lacrosse, baseball, softball, field hockey and soccer.

That's a lot of bang for your buck.

I had several phone calls with the owner of the Crocbox, Ken Eckert, after I found out about his product. He's a great guy, a hard working blue collar entrepreneur who came up with what I think is a great idea. During our discussions I asked him for an exclusive discount for my readers.

He agreed to give my newsletter readers an exclusive $95 discount, and that's in addition to what he's currently offering on his site, which includes a free hitting mat and free shipping.

When you order at enter TomTuckerGolf in the promo code box, click on the "Use" button, and the $95 discount will be applied.

I've got mine, I'll be using it soon, and I can't wait. Get yours today, while the getting is good.

Full disclosure, I do make a modest commission on sales, and you get a great discount on a great product. I don't recommend anything that I don't buy and use myself, so rest assured on the quality.

Try it, you'll like it.
