Haven't used it. Theory behind it seems sound, but there are less expensive ways to practice getting the shaft lean while using your own clubs.

Ive never seen it before, but it looks like it could work.. Are you really suppose to have your hands that far in front of the clubhead to hit it well, it almost seems like they are making you deloft your club too much, no?

Maybe it's meant to ingrain feel?

Like Erik said, I'm plenty happy with holding a stick on the end of my club and not stabbing myself with it.

Thanks guys,
Erik, what ways would you recommend to practice to get the shaft lean and the ball strike more consistent. Even though I play fairly well, I do still have tendencies not to leave a divot at all or a little behind the ball or right under. It's it's obvious to me that I am hitting the ball with bottom of my club head and not the middle "sweet spot".
I think what they stress is your impact zone is suppose to be different then your setup position, which I have known before, but it's hard to make it happened without a tool since when making a full swing, it's hard to feel the difference.
Are there other cheaper tools or maybe even drills to do to achive the same goal?
Thanks.

Thanks guys,

The simplest drill would be to work on your chipping and slowly start moving to longer swings.

Retain the angle between the right forearm and the shaft of the club, too - don't let that right arm roll over (face-on view).

I have never had the chance to use one but I love the concept - looking forward to see if anyone else has insight here.

I found that product online just by chance last fall, and been following the web-site every now and then since. I also just saw the infomercial on the Golf Channel earlier this week, and it's pretty well done. I'd like to get one, but with a somewhat limited golf budget there are other things I can spend the $100 on. I would love to hear from anyone that's used one.

Also, the inventor is a PGA pro, and I've sent him some emails with questions. He's always responded within a day, so he seems to really be into his product.

Ok, just watched the commercial for this new product and it seems to make sense. I wonder if it truely teaches you how to keep the hands in front at impact?

Thoughts??

I've actually heard some really good things about it. My cousin has one and loves to hit it a few times a week at the range just as a check up kind of. I've read some reviews online about it that have always sounded positive as well. If you feel like you're having trouble keeping your hands in front of the ball and hitting the ball first before the ground then it may be worth a shot.

    • My heated driving range is closing
      About 10 years ago I had a heated range go up literally a half mile from my house. It didnt last 2 years so I feel your pain. Luckily theres one about 35 minutes from where I live now that seems to always be busy. They even have a simulator.
    • The Legendary Callaway Great Big Bertha Tungsten Titanium Irons of 1997
      NOSTALGIA: To buy or not to buy?  That IS the Question... I grew up playing golf.  By age 8 I was pretty much an addict.  At the course, rain or shine, every single day after school in the spring and all summer long.  I would often play with older guys, me being the 4th in a foursome as I often went early (dawn ) and by myself.  The course was in walking distance so I could manage it by myself.  Like a lot of beginners and especially juniors, I had junk clubs.  Wilson Junior 1200s to be exact.  No lessons of any kind just a golf book by Ben Hogan and a lot of hard work and discipline on the range.  I was becoming a good junior golfer by age 11. I could break 85 consistently at my home course (and 90 else where).  Once in a while you would get a group of guys that had brand new equipment.  Personalized Staff bags.  Cigars.  Decked out with Ashworth gear and making wagers with one another for me was a lot of money.  In 1997/1998 a lot of the clubs I saw in their bags were Callaway.  The Drivers.  The Irons.  Ping putters.  I think a lot of guys grab the best gear thinking that status is important and the perceived "better" clubs would equate to "better" scores or they would feel "better" about shooting 100.  I started seeing more and more of these $2,000+ sets of irons: the fabled Callaway Great Big Bertha Tungsten Titanium Irons.  If I was really fortunate, my golf skills and attitude would endear me enough to the rest of the group that they would let me hit a couple balls during/after the round after I showed interest in their equipment.  I was hitting my knockoff driver (The Rogue) about 185 yards at the time.  Take out the "Great Big Bertha" and BOOM 210 yards!  My 7 iron was carrying about 125 yards... with the tungsten titanium it was MUCH longer.  Maybe it was the design/technology.  Maybe it was purely psychological.  Maybe it was luck or all of the above.  Whatever it was, I knew immediately that with these magical clubs in my bag I could take my game to the next level.  Sadly, I never could afford the price tag... until now.  These clubs hold a special place in my heart.  These guys were reluctant to play with the skinny 11 year old kid with crap equipment... I didn't fit the mold of a "good" golfer.  They asked the starter if they could play with some one else because I would "slow them down."  They assumed I was a hacker.  And then I proved them wrong.  I beat the pants off these guys and although it made me happy to see them eat their words, I didn't show it.  I was breaking 85 and they were breaking 100... barely.  Seeing that they underestimated me and then befriend me over the course of 18 holes was special.  It taught me a lot about people, perception, life, and reality.  ***Would you purchase a set of clubs for nostalgia alone?  Would these clubs stack up against Callaway X 20 tour irons (what I have in the bag now)???  Have you ever had a similar experience on the course with new equipment?  What is your favorite iron set of the 90s? 2000s?  What were your first set of clubs?***
    • How to eliminate blowup holes
      Havnt read lsw yet but its on my list. And while I agree thats not ALWAYS the best strategy, I think thats a great piece of advice. I think I know when Im in trouble and I get discouraged thinking its too late to save my score on that hole. Your strategy changes my mind set and gives me more reason to focus on the next shot so I can limit the damage by not making another mistake. Its between the ears as they say! GREAT tip, thanks!
