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.

    • Wow, looks more suited to Croqeut than golf. Cant find anyting on the interweb about it. Looks like its pretty old though.
    • I think providing people dont turn up in speedo's and flip flops it shouldnt matter what you wear. If im at the range i'll generally be in Jeans/Joggers, t-shirt and trainers. Personally i dont understand the guys that turn up in their full gear to hit a basket of balls then go home, but each to their own i suppose. The way i see it is the range isnt just for dedicated golfers. Its a place for people to try it out, to have a bit of fun or, in my case, to spend some time with my 4 year old that doesnt involve staying in building train sets (fun but nice to get out). If someone turns up and they are not dressed to your liking or sound like they are having "too much fun" just ignore them and focus on what you are doing. I find it actually helps me when there is noise next to me as if i can hit good shots with a group of lads laughing next to me then not much can distract me on the course.
    • Zero.   I can't remember ever coming closer than 3 feet in about 40 years of off and on golf.  I guess I need to improve my iron play. 
    • And dawn of the big day has arrived at the Talamore Golf Resort. Or it will soon, anyway. Sand Trappers everywhere are rising to catch sight of the first scoreboard of the day, so we won't disappoint you and make you wait any longer than necessary. Teams for the morning foursomes are set.   I was able to zip south in time to catch the end of dinner at the Carolina Hotel at Pinehurst, as the coaches squared off to announce the teams. Sorry no group photo yet, and just a candid, but you can already sense that the East has more gray hair, but the West needs to do more stretching! I'll refrain from posting pics yet about some of the bling the teams received last night, but let's just say we should all hope for a tie in this Newport Cup match, to be decided by a sudden death fashion show: the all-red Pizza Delivery men vs the Jet Blue flight attendants.   
    • Drop and stop is realistic for a 15 handicap, as is sucking it back for a +1 handicap... I haven't updated my profile handicap in a while... But we'll go with I'm in the middle... Can I suck it back? Ummm... Maybe a foot or so... Am I a drop and stop sort of guy... More or less. But in this next phase of my game, I'm playing shots that are much more consistent than what I was hitting before. If I miss a green from 150 yards and in now, it's not by very much... I played 27 holes yesterday, I did only hit 9/27 greens in regulation, however, almost all of my missed greens were nGIR, and most of those we within 10 feet of the edge. It's definitely better than it was with this way of playing shots from 150 yards and in, because with my driving distance most of my iron shots into par-4s on my home course are from 150 yards and in. "GIR is King, nGIR is Queen."- Lowest Score Wins.  As a side note, that is only tangentially related. (It's a slightly different skill)  My pitches and chips have started to get better, since I purposely started playing the shorter swing shots.
