The book title is word play on the old Christ Crucified story (a good man wronged) and this distinguished academic and popular author tells us all there is to know about Mr. Woods, or at least all he can find to read. Of...” --joekelly
I wanted to make sure that I wrote a follow up on this because when I researched the Puttist, it seemed that there was not too much out there as far as what people thought after using it for a while. This is probably because not that many people have it considering the price of it........So I've had the Puttist for 3 weeks now and I have been using it just about every day. For...” --bjwestner
Path2Putt is a simple product and in the training aid world of golf, that is refreshing. Essentially, the aid is a laser that attaches to your putter shaft. It comes with a plastic clip that aligns the laser down the shaft so that the laser dot is just in front of the putter face. From there all you do is find a line and keep the dot on that line. That's all there is to it and you are now...” --TourSpoon
“Driveway markers are some of the best training aids available. At a cost of about $2.99, they're readily available to those of us who live in the northern states where we, sadly, need to mark out our driveways and sidewalks with these bright orange fiberglass (often) sticks so that we don't snowplow our yards for the many months we have snow.
But the irony is that in these same...” --iacas

“I am always looking for workouts that improve my fitness. After years of bike racing and a couple of surgeries, my body had lost flexibility in some areas including upper body rotation, shoulder rotation and hips. I've been doing stretching and therapy exercises, but that wasn't improving my flexibility all the way. My limiters were how far I could rotate my shoulders on the back...” --boogielicious
“I've read Dave Stockton's Unconscious Putting and use a lot of the set up he suggested from that book, so I was eager to see if his short game technique. The book is a fairly easy read. I did find my self re-reading sections on set up, as they were a bit confusing at first. But after a quick review, they are straight forward. I am not posting any pictures...” --boogielicious

First, I will write about me to give some perspective. I am a 31/m with very limited flexibility. My flexibility issues have hampered my golf game since the beginning so I have been looking for ways to fix the issue. I was awarded the opportunity to review the Golflexx training aid and I must say I am very impressed.
Equipment: A standard...” --SloverUT
“There's probably not much I can say about this book that hasn't already been addressed in either these other reviews or the myriad forums on the website. With that said, let me offer some insights that I hope don't overlap what others have said already.
The concept for this book is very original. More importantly, it's the concept that most golfers who buy books should probably...” --mmoan2
