Medicus Hinged Driver?

5 posts in this topic

Hey all.  I'm new to golf, and was thinking about giving the Medicus driver a go at hopefully learning some good habits.  While I've read a couple of negative reviews, they are mostly positive.  Any thoughts on this?  There are also Medicus irons, but I'm thinking the driver would be most beneficial to begin with.  Again, any suggestions made would be greatly appreciated.

I have one in a closet somewhere and the only negative thing I can say about it is that I could swing it time after time and never have any of the hinges "break" (even from the first day I bought it).

That should indicate I had/have a decent swing...but I don't. So I can't say that it helped me any at all.

On the other hand it seemed to help my son quite a bit and it was hinging all over the place when he first used it.

I would say it's a good tool for identifying and working on certain swing flaws but other flaws don't show up at all using it.

Thanks for the quick response!  Honestly, being new to a forum, I realize I should have searched first before asking this question as it seems others have had similar questions and gotten good feedback.  Anyhow, I'm thinking if getting this helps with just some of my swing issues, it's worth a few bucks (going to search Craigslist shortly).  Thanks again.

I wouldn't recommend it. The concept takes too narrow a view of what constitutes a good golf swing. There are plenty of Tour players who would break the hinges on every swing but, clearly, they have great swings. I would recommend looking into the 5sk teaching methods as they eliminate all the stylistic bullshit and focus on the 5 elements of the swing that you need to get right to play good golf. Welcome to the forum, you'll learn way more from hanging out here than you would by swinging that Medicus gadget.
