Good to have you hear Tony. I have to say after reading about your product here at TST I didnt even bother trying to review it. I purchased one from one of my favorite online golf retailers. (Not sure if I should post the name as it's not a sponsor) But it should arrive tomorrow and Im looking forward to trying it out.

Hey Ron.....awesome! We have quite a few on-line affiliates representing Golflexx. It's a great tool, simple to use and should be used throughout the year to keep those "pesky" muscles limber. It's amazing how stiff we get as we creep up in age but that doesn't mean you have to wait until your a senior to stretch. We've got thousands in use by PGA and LPGA members, golf instructors and golfers like you and I.....the ones who just love to play. In fact, we have a nice following of folks who don't golf at all but use Golflexx to stay flexible. Please let me know directly if you have any questions with our product. I'm happy to help anytime!

Stretch it out!

Got mine and so far worth every penny. I think this thing works as advertised. The only complaint, and it's a small complaint probably user error, but my thumbs get sore using it. That may go away over time.

Well Done

I mention that on my review the thumbs do notice the work out. But maybe stronger thumbs is a side benefit

I have one and liking it so far. Mine is a medium and I have to resist the urge to overbend it but I think that is a good thing. It makes me relax and stretch, two things I need.

Cool! Stronger thumbs might make me better at Madden and Tiger Woods on Playstation 3!

Thumb strengthening while using Golflexx creates faster texting! (kidding).

Our specific grip instruction and thumb / finger placement is meant to keep users from over-flexing their Golflexx. During the R&D; process we handed Golflexx units out to between 15 and 20 PGA professionals at a local tournament here in Oregon, the Jeld Wen Tournament, where Golflexx sponsored a booth. During that time we took advice from many pro's who tried Golflexx out on the range. It was an awesome day as we watched some very big names using our product. It was suggested that thumb placement should be specifically put on the grip as such allowing the user to get maximum benefit from the pre-loading process. Our spokes person Dr. Donald Fox agreed.

You can, however, hold the ends with your thumbs wrapped around the grips once you get used to your flex limit. There are several recommended exercises that require your thumbs to be on the grips as per the instructional DVD but adjust them according to your comfort level, just don't flex more then the apprx. 6 degree limit. Keep in mind pre-loading your unit is meant for stretching and not so much for strength training although you will get some benefit to strengthening the muscles used.

Hope that helps and thank you all for your input and support.

    • That is what I was wondering when taking the practice stroke.  If I make a mark with the practice stroke in the rough or on the fairway...is that a penalty?  Because I see people doing that all the time...but since I am looking at where my divot/brushed grass was pointing as a reference point...is that illegal?  If I wasn't using it as a reference point would that be then legal?  That seems like some murky waters.  People are touching the ground on practice strokes all the time...
    • I activated Steve Stricker for Sunday's round on a lark, and he rewarded me with the low round of the tournament. For once, I made a smart call.
    • You can't make a mark (that you don't remove) for the purpose of alignment. That is against the rules.
    •  I hate the Be Better Golf guy. He gets great guests than doesn't know to shut up and let them speak. Annoying as heck.   I was really surprised by the poor play in that video. I though tthose guys would be better. But I do give them credit for showing their bad shots. They could've only shown the good ones .
    • Got a chance to take some on course video over the weekend. I should do more of this to get a better idea of what my actual swing looks like. I still need to get a new smartphone tripod and I can start vlogging again. Angles are a little off but nothing crazy. Driver   Stance is maybe a hair on the narrow side. The swing looks better than the results would indicate. I really thought I was still getting the club past parallel and across the line. Irons/Wedge   I didn't get a face on of a full iron swing so I'm posting this flighted wedge instead. Not exactly the same thing but it will have to do for now. Big takeaway on the swing is I'm still swinging too far right with the clubhead a little underplane and too shallow. I've been having some low point issues and it seems to make sense. Miss is still on the toe and an overdraw or a push, although from watching my videos again I realized that I still aim to the right, so I think my pushes aren't even as bad as I think they are, only that I'm already lined up right of target to begin with. I'm going to have to change my pre-shot routine to incorporate better aiming. Pitching   I included the full speed video of my pitching because I wanted to look at my tempo. Still pretty Fruit-Ninja-y. Putting Figured I'd take a putting video. This was on the 18th green, after the face on video of my driver and the flighted wedge, so a mini vlog of sorts. I'm trying something out where I hold the putter with only my right hand and then hold my whole hand with my left for stability. I was playing around with distance control because I tend to leave lag putts way short and I noticed that my left hand in the double overlap grip kind of acts as a brake on the stroke. Putting the hands together lets the putterhead pendulum better under its own weight. As you can see I definitely didn't leave the first putt short and the speed on the second putt was perfect. My putting in general has improved since I've gotten adjusted to my putter modification. Aim is a lot better and I'm hitting my lines which is leading to better results on mid-length putts. I also need to read long putts better, just kind of lazy about it, but I'm leaving some second putts longer than they should be because I'm not reading the first putts and aiming properly. I do like the grip change though and I think once I get used to that, the distance control will be better. I have some thoughts on the full swing but I'll hash them out later. Maybe
