Brooks Hazelbaker grew up with baseball and came to golf later in life. He says that the typical golf club “never felt completely comfortable with my grip.” So he invented the HomeRun Putter—a golf club built into a baseball bat. Then he built a small business around that idea.
He’s still coming up with novel ways to use baseball bats, including to form American flag displays. The HomeRun Flag consists of baseball bats cut in half, arranged, and painted to resemble Old Glory.
