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. :)

WOW! i'm not messing around with books, dvds, or lessons ANYMORE! just read the website, and this glove will surely have me in the low 70's soon. i mean, IT FIXES EVERYTHING!

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.

    • At $300 and requiring only 3’ for a radar unit, I don’t think it’s going to be very accurate. So no, it’s not going be dominating the Mevo market anytime soon. There are those of us who didn’t get the Garmin R10 at a fraction of the price of a Mevo+ (and Pro package) because of questionable accuracy. Hell, the gifs on their site show people “playing” the simulator without even hitting a ball. It’s basically a video game at that point.
    • Yet another question about the technology for filming a swing. I read Erik's updated "Filming your Swing" blog post as part of researching my next phone purchase. My current phone, which is on its last legs, was able to record video up to 1080p at up to 120 fps (Pixel 3XL).  However, that camera isn't great at the moment (various reasons unrelated to its specifications) and I'm going to get a new device soon, too.  Its likely successor for me is only able to do 30fps at 1080p, so that won't work for filming a golf swing.  It can do 720p @ 480 fps though (device I'm likely to get is a Galaxy A42).  Will that work for this?  I realize the post says "at least 720p video," but I don't know if I should shoot for better than that (such as if it is expected to be outdated soon).  It also seems odd to me that a camera could do only 30fps at 1080p but 480 fps at 720p, but I know almost nothing about these things. I am also debating getting a separate camera for golf swings if this won't work;  my prior separate-camera is a Canon PowerShot ELPH 110.  I believe it tops out at 720p / 30 fps;  if there's a reasonably priced camera that works for my golf swing filming, I'd be happy to get that and not sweat the camera on the phone. Other than filming my golf swing, my phone is pretty much a communication device and podcast player, so I'm not going higher end except if doing so is the most effective way to get a good camera for my golf swing. (Apologies if this should have been a separate thread, but I figured it was on-topic here and I didn't think there was another forum than Member Swings where this would be an appropriate top-level post)
    • Day 127: Played 18 this morning. Tried to simplify the mechanics of my priority piece (which is two things) into a feel but didn’t work great, so just settled on on of them after a few holes. Played okay except for a dumb triple bogey on #12.
    • I got my first round in. I haven't used Game Golf in so long, I got out of the habit of tagging. Missed a few shots on the course, though it was pretty easy to edit in on my computer. Like @iacas, I also felt the editor was just okay. I didn't have an issue with the map size, but I found scrolling up and down a lot a bit tedious. I had to mess around with adding shots and penalties, though, so I had to spend more time editing off the map. The penalty functions weren't very intuitive. They seem to add an additional "dead shot" (does not appear to track the distance for your stats) for counting purposes as well as a penalty stroke. The lost ball one makes sense, as it gives you a marker with an X on it so you can mark off where you hit the ball that was lost, then your next shot is from where you played your last stroke to where you play your next one. But the drop ball function seems to work the exact same way, which doesn't make sense. If I hit into a penalty area I'm likely not taking S&D, so in order to make it work score-wise, I ended up just deleting the original tracked shot. I don't know if I'm doing that correctly. I didn't like tagging on my belt the way I used Game Golf. As Erik mentioned, the vibration is subtle and it doesn't beep. I often didn't know if it registered. Also the Game Golf unit was angled so you can tag the club hanging down at your side naturally. Tagging the Shot Scope requires bringing the club perpendicular to the ground. It's awkward and I almost hit a playing partner today while tagging a putt because he was walking past me and didn't expect me to bring the club up like that. Next time I'm going to try wearing the unit on my left like I do my Garmin and tagging by bringing the unit to the club. I might even stop using the Garmin if the GPS on the H4 is good enough. Didn't get a chance to compare today because I forgot my Garmin. I didn't know there was a pin marker function. I'm going to have to try that next time. So far I like the data it presents. It seems more detailed than Game Golf. I'll form a more complete opinion of it as I play more rounds.
    • I realize this got no traction initially. But for anyone interested, SwingLogic will be dropping this for pre-orders early in the week. No idea what the timeline is for delivery though. I plan to give it a shot. If it turns out to be comparable to the Mevo or R10, I'd imagine it'll do really well.
