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. :)

  • 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.

    • He’s sure as hell not underrated by his peers.
    • One of my goals this year is to rely more on expert instruction and accountability. I'm interested in finding an online virtual coach (I roam around the country throughout the year... in El Paso now, western NY most of summer, usually about 2 months in Florida) that can help with mechanics, mental game, practice planning, strategy, and course management. I'm a 9.3 index right now. Any recommendations from the hive mind?
    • I might argue that they aren't trash. And THAT'S THE PROBLEM. It's really hard to make any improvements now. If you really did something to make the game easier it would likely be against the rules. 
    • I nominate Charles Howell III  For 20 years, Howell has played in 25-to-30 tournaments a season, played well enough to make most cuts, and collected a nice check. Howell’s career can be summed up as steady, if unremarkable, even if that might sound like an oversimplification for someone who’s also earned three PGA Tour wins. His earnings for the 2019-2020 season was over $1MM. This marks the 20th season in a row he’s cleared that number, a streak that leaves him nearly peerless. The only other player with such absurd longevity is Phil Mickelson, who’s cleared $1 million in earnings 24 years in a row. Since 2001, Howell has made no fewer than 23 starts each season, meaning he’s played a full schedule every year.  “If you ain't first, you're last.” (Ricky Bobby, Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby). There may not be many trophies on Howell’s mantel, but there are quite a few zeros in his bank account.
