Keeps your elbows together. I would think it makes you turn around a stable axis. I dunno though...

Interesting concept.  Weird looking... but interesting.

I stole a belt from my 5 yr old son, wrap it around my arms just above the elbows, does the same thing.

 

$3 at zellers or walmart.

They should make one with big fake titties on the front so everyone is too distracted to notice that you look like an idiot at the rangeb2_tongue.gif

Been looking for something like this. Funny he's from Rumson. Hominy Hill is my favorite course too.

 

I need to get this guy's cell. This would really help me out.

Well, I actually bought this thing. Guy's from Rumson and he debuted it at my favorite course in Colts Neck, so I figured I'd give him a fair shake. Plus, since I've been partaking a lot in the elbow positioning thread, this looked like an interesting training aid. I'll post a review whenever the hell it arrives. Could be a while.

 

PS- Per Ernest's comment: Yes I am more than prepared with looking like a complete ass at the range. And I expect to get ribbed for it endlessly there by the other regulars. I'll write about that too.

I like the impactball for keeping elbows close but this shirt looks promising

Cost me $70. We'll see if I just pissed away a greens fee and a cart at a decent course. 

 

Right now, I'd prefer not to have to think too much about my arms when I practice.

 

Small investment. We'll see how it goes.

If it helps you in your swing, I would like to know also.

 

I rather look like a dunce on the range, than a jackass on the course.

I was using my 4 year old's belt ala Ben Hogan, seemed to work pretty well and definitely kept the elbows together.

Yea well, we'll see. I want to see if it'll control my upper right arm location as well.

I'm with you - not that bad for a shirt :-)

 

impactball is $35. For full swing, squeeze elbows - ball stays.

 

Best training aid for me to easily use.

Something elastic would work best though right?
