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.

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.

    • So I went out after work yesterday to play 9 holes with Jacob for Regional tournament practice and I hit the ball better than I have in quite some time. I hit 6/7 fairways and 7/9 GIR. I had 4 birdie putts that could have been made that were inside 10 feet. I made a birdie from about 12 feet. So I am -1 going into number 9 (only playing 9) and this hole is a dogleg left par 4 with a pond in the dogleg. I NEVER hit it in the water here. I can smooth stroke a 3w and clear the water with no issues. Well, with that in mind, I guess I took a lot off of my swing or something and I hit my 3w fat. I'm talking FAT!! And in the water it went. I went to the drop zone which ended up being about 215 out. I missed the green to the right and ended up hitting my pitch too hard and ran past the hole about 25 feet. I two putted for a double. I end up shooting a 37. I was so frustrated! And to think back on what could have been had my putting (which is usually a strong part of my game) been as good as usual...
    • Hey here's another question I been thinking about. Now I've never used one hence my ignorance on the subject, but since most Scotty's are custom done titleist putters, why are they so high? Do they putt better than the normal titleist would? Or is the price because he has customized the look and added stones or maybe miller the face, whatever. What's the big deal with the Scotty?
    • I'll definitely try that as both were purchased from the same seller, who is a PGA certified reseller.  I appreciate the advise on this front as I almost refuse to spend another $3-400 to save these guys.  I do have my OG Razr X Black and Aeroburner ti fallback on.  If I'm striking at the shaft/hosel side, I'd guess I may reproduce that in my Aeroburner since the shaft is so damn long.
    • Really? Well I feel dumb, I have always thought that the dot system was for the shaft length
    • Yea, just like injuries to your body, the last thing you did with your club isn't necessarily the thing that broke it, just the straw that broke the camel's back. You could have been doing damage to your shafts for quite some time. Fixing where you tend to strike the ball is related to fixing your swing. Like I said, I would at least try and bring the clubs back to the store you bought them from and maybe they can ship them back to the manufacturer for repair. Each time I broke a driver shaft, it was repaired for free. I just had to wait 3-4 weeks or whatever it was.
