looks interesting ... I am working on my wrist collapsing at impact.

I purchased a smash bag today for this very issue.  This could be the think to help. Would like to hear if someone has tried this.

My son has one.  I saw him using it on the course many times.

He originally got it to help with his slice.  It seems to do the trick.  Now he's hitting a draw with occasional pulls.  I've also noticed that his short game got quite a bit better with it.  He used to chunk/blade a couple of shots a round but seldom does it now.

If you have any specific questions, I'd be glad to ask him for you.

Looks like the Sklz Smart Glove I bought when I first started out.

From my perspective it helped a lot to get my wrist in the correct "flat" position at impact although there was a certain amount of limitation with ulnar deviation as the solid part doesn't move. I did see a similar glove with a "joint" in the wrist to allow for ulnar deviation.

MiniBlueDragon,

When you said 'ulnar deviation', did you mean movements like hinge%20up.JPG and hinge%20down.JPG ?

If so, I know the glove with a "joint".  It's called "Dynamic Swing Glove".  I used to buy them for my son every other months except during the middle of the summer when it's too hot to wear them.  He wore them out at the thumb every time.  It's kind of expensive to have to buy five or six gloves a year at around $30 a pop

Now that he's supporting himself, he found a cheaper solution.  I guess when your are spending your own money, you pay attention to the costs a lot more.

Yep that's the movement. I can see from your pictures though that the wrist section on that glove slides across the back of the wrist. The problem with the Sklz one is that it's strapped to the wrist and can't move. As long as you have that movement I can't see a downside to the one he has other than making sure he only uses it occasionally to check that he has a flat wrist rather than relying on it to flatten his wrist for him. :)

For less than the price of a box of golf balls, SureWrist lets you
  • Make solid contact and enjoy the sensation of compressing the ball
  • Hit it longer and more accurately
  • Cure your slices (and hooks too)
  • Pitch and chip it closer and make more putts like the pros
  • Properly address the ball and finish your swing (see details in the How it Works page)
  • Use it on the course and on the practice range
  • Have complete freedom when you hinge your wrist properly (see pictures on the right) instead of cupping

Yes, it seemed kind of stupid to me too until I saw my son's improvements.  I used to give him strokes but this season we are even.  Maybe my age is catching up to me It's definitely cheap comparing to the Swing Glove or the Tour Striker.

My son doesn't wear it on every hole now that he's used to the feelings.  He puts it on only when his swing is shaky or when he's got a tough lie.

One thing I noticed when he let me try it on the putting green was that the feel of the putts were different.  It's like I've found a new and better sweet spot.  Every putt felt very solid and the ball came out hotter.

    • The elephant in the room here  - and everyone knows it is as follows: Not all people of a particular political persuasion are against this and other vaccines. But all people who are against this and other vaccines are of that particular political persuasion. @David in FL is pretty obviously seen as a man of sage like wisdom amongst his friends at the pool hall who base their "opinions" on misrepresentations of reality and downright lies. ("Research") Problem is, when asked to defend his position he puts up straw man "arguments" where the goalposts keep shifting and he can always be seen as being prudent and sensible amongst the uneducated. So freaking what if lay people can't describe to you what the effects will be in 2 years or - the scientists (who, amazingly are on our side) have a pretty good idea and I for one don't feel like a "sheep" for believing them. If they can convince him it's safe after 2 years he'll scratch his chin, put down his glasses and ask "What about 7 years?".  When a role model is a national leader who gets his shot in secret for fear of upsetting his followers, it should make one more determined to bow to peer pressure and get the vaccine. Peer pressure meaning giving a shit about your fellow man/woman and children.
    • I like my mega sudoku I wont lie it usually takes a few hours but I want to start trying something larger than 16.
    • Well I had said that I would get back to you guys after I goofed around with the 54° and 58° on my short game shots (I only have my old Tommy Armour V-31 sand wedge as a 56° test).    My experience was that I don’t know that I will ALWAYS need two speciality wedges for  short game shots, but the 58° does come in handy from uneven shittier lies, the 56° has decent results from said lies, so the vote is not in yet... I feel the 50-90 yard shots are easier to control with the 56° (my 54° is 95-105 yards, and 58° 75-85 but I don’t like to hit them full). On the full swing motion wedge shots I can get away with just a 56°, but the one time I need a 58°-60° around the green... I think it’s going to course and conditions dependent... I can always take the 3-iron out for the 7-wood... or the 3 and 4 iron for the 7 and 9 wood... but that’s a different topic...
    • I actually am toying with playing with a 7- and 9-wood in place of my 3 and 4 hybrids not liking how hybrids hook, my 9 wood would have to be a non-Srixon/Cleveland because I’m not paying XXIO money for a 9-wood.    Hey, the 9-wood might be the modern equivalent, of the Ray Floyd 5-wood at the 1976 Masters, he actually took the 2-iron out and left the 1-iron in when he put the 5-wood in play in the 1976 Masters. The 9-wood might be my answer to question of the long par-three and long par-four second shot I have.
    • Definitely something that could help him keep golf competitions in perspective.
