IGOTCHA Launches New Jawz Golf Ball Retrievers for 2019

Alright, I admit it. Sending out this press release does sort of leave me a little perplexed.

As a general rule I’ve never liked ball retrievers. I have my reasons and I will not elaborate on that at the moment. But there are plenty of golfers out there that carry and use them. If you’re one of those golfers and you’re going to use one you should consider a higher end model. Like the IGOTCHA Jawz.

Ranging anywhere from 10′ to 18′ feet in length (extended) these ball retrievers are said to be durable and a co-molded rubberized surface that will hold the golf ball in place. As opposed to the types where the ball falls out unceremoniously as you get it near the shoreline. I hate getting held up on the golf course.


For more information on the Jawz Ball Retriever from IGOTCHA please see the press release as shared by Julie Parham. Ms. Parham is the Marketing Manager for Dynamic Brands.

Richmond, VA – IGOTCHA, a Dynamic Brands company, announced a new line of golf ball retrievers, the Jawz models, as a part of the 2019 product line. “We created the Jawz retrievers to be easy to see in the water with a colorful rubberized surface which grips and holds a golf ball in place,” said Craig Ramsbottom, President of Dynamic Brands. “This design was a group effort with our product development team working with our sales representatives.”

The Jawz retrievers feature a new co-molded rubberized surface to grip and hold the ball in place. These top-of-the-line golf ball retrievers use a single-piece head design with no moving parts, making them extremely durable and long-lasting. The ball can be picked up from either side of the head with the teeth-like rubberized Jawz. Equipped with a patented stainless-steel shaft, the Jawz’s ultra-compact design is available in 10-foot, 14-foot and 18-foot reach lengths, which collapse down to only 15.5 to 21 inches.


Dynamic Brands acquired IGOTCHA in 2015 to add to a diverse portfolio of golf brands. IGOTCHA has become the #1 selling golf ball retriever in the industry since it was established in 1996.

“The innovation and technology of the IGOTCHA retrievers continues to grow with the Jawz models and has been well received by our customers,” said Ramsbottom. “Jawz retrievers are extremely durable.” All three models have handles that can be customized for tournaments or groups with their own logos, with a low 12-piece minimum for only $1 per handle.
The Jawz comes in three sizes; 10-Foot Reach (6-foot length, collapses to 15.5 inches) $29.95 SRP, 14-Foot Reach (10-foot length, collapses to 17.5 inches) $39.95 SRP and 18-Foot Reach (14-foot length, collapses to 21 inches) $49.95 SRP. Available now on and retailers nationwide.

Until The Next Tee!!
