Erik Heltne is the founder of BubbaWhips. What started as an idea between friends during the cold Minnesota winter has evolved into a thriving family run small business. Thinking about the vintage or retro look in golf, Erik thought about how players practice and wondered if alignment sticks could be turned back in time. BubbaWhips are hand painted and finished in Minnesota. All are made of hickory, a throwback to golf’s original wood shaft. To find out more about Erik and BubbaWhips, check out the following links:
