Check out this training device. Sort of like the spandex version of the swing jacket

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 range

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.

    • Not only are you hitting the sweet spot, but a relaxed swing like that is probably more efficiently transferring your back/shoulder/arm power through relaxed hands into the clubhead. Swing a whip as hard as you can, and you just look like a fool.  Flip is casually and correctly and the tip goes fast enough to break the sound barrier. Now that you have had a taste at a smoother and easier swing, you can start to become more consistent with those movements and correctly add more speed in the future.  Frankly, with your posted index, I'm surprised this is new to you.  I look forward to hearing how your game improves now.
    • The lessons I've had generally follow the same pattern: 1) Diagnosis (could be set up, or swing) first 5-10 mins. 2) Experiment to see if I can feel the error (5 mins). 3) Experiment to feel the correction (often with exaggeration, drills etc). 4) Skills test to see if I can implement the changes (can I do it with a 4 iron, can I massively exaggerate the desired effect) The homework is basically these 4 things. When I feel I've fixed it, or feel like something else is wrong, or I can't fix it, then I'll go back for another lesson. Has helped me go from a 27 to sub-14.
    • So the question becomes why does a 75% swing hit the middle of the clubface more often? My guess would be that the movements are in control and you're not wasting energy forcing the club to act against a more neutral motion. I feel like when I go super hard (say 110% of my usual speed) I try and thrust everything (handle, hips, hands) forward and right rather than just swinging. Is this also the reason that flighted iron shots are preferred to full swings?
    • I agree with some of the other posters. Hitting the ball square is more important than just speed. When you get a player that can match top speed and center hits..well you pretty much have a professional...lol
    • How can one possibly improve without homework? My instructor last year gave me plenty of homework.  Sadly, my schedule caused me to need to have my few lessons over too short a period and to not do all the homework.  It was a great disservice to both my attempts to improve and my instructor's time. In all honesty, the actual instructions did not give me a whole lot of information that I didn't already know from all my reading and online research.  He merely said things in different ways and applied it differently.  This very vital assistance did very little for me at the time of the lesson, but the after-lesson drills and spending the next days/weeks/months considering new ways to look at the information I've had for years was a great help. An instructor who does not give the student homework (specifically tailored to that student's issues) is nothing more than a 20 page audiobook.  And I don't think anyone here is going to suggest that one can become a great golfer by just reading the same 20 pages over and over.
