Here's another really solid way to use the Chili Wacker. This one may be one of my favorites.

I liked the idea of the CW from the start, but this one sold me. At home, I stick alignment rods in the ground as reference points to check hip position during the swing... but I can't do that at the range because it's just mats and concrete. (Plus, I now have a video of you practicing my priority piece, so big thanks for that! )

The price is definitely prohibitive. Although, I'm a true "hacker" at heart, not just in golf, and may not be the best sample. Besides the cost savings (in this instance, "uuuge"), I prefer the customization I could get from building my own. Would be a fun project for the kids, too, and then (maybe) they'd want to use it. ;-)

And just to mention, I'm not an avid photographer but I do have three tripods (for "normal" cameras and telescopes)... in my wife's eyes, it's another tripod. :-D

It comes in super handy. I used it for this just last night. The wall drill is great, but when you move away from the wall it's still nice to have something students can continue to use as a reference point.

He was setting up a bit farther from it later on in the lesson when this video was recorded, but you can still see that it was useful for the trail hip motion (initial "before" on the left):

Well, I do encourage you to support the guys who come up with these ideas. You could perhaps email and ask about a tripod-less option. The top support and bar with the sliding things is really well made.

Thanks. Is there audio with this or is someone teaching in the next bay?

That seems cool for an instructor or something but i dont see myself carrying that around with me. Im moving around the facility too much. I like that thing that looks like two yardsticks . It helps you with diagonal sweetspot and ball striking. That is probably the best thing ive seen for path training stuff. I have no idea where to get one. If i see it out one day, it will come home with me for sure. I think it will fold up and go in your bag even.

I agree that it may be more for instructors and more serious students.

https://chiliwacker.com - That's where you can get it.

The two yard sticks things is probably the VisionTrack. Pretty sure @iacas sells them or can tell you where to buy them. 

Here it is:

    • Day 12 Chipping practice into a net.
    • What length do you play your driver?  Most drivers come standard from the shop well over 45" (45.5, 45.75, etc).  Mine was fitted right at 45"
    • This is a good publicity stunt, though, unlike that Koepka rivalry crap. People have been comparing LD guys to PGA Tour guys forever, now we can actually see one in a competition.
    • I'm a truck driver and every now and then, I stop by a hospital or reference lab and repair a blood bank analyzer.  Well, at least that's how it feels. 😉  I'm actually a field service engineer for a blood bank analyzer company, but I spend as much time driving to accounts as in them.  My 3 1/2 year old pickup has 118k miles on it already. (We drive our own vehicles and get a stipend to make up for it.) I hope to be retired and a full-time golf bum in the not-to-distant future!
    • Saw this a couple of days ago, not sure if it should have its own thread or not, but thought this was a good a place as any to post. I thought for sure there would already be a post on it, but I didn’t see one.     Bryson wrecking hands in long-drive prep Bryson DeChambeau has received some battle scars while training for the Ryder Cup and... Any thoughts on how he’ll do? Embarrass himself or make a decent showing?    I’d assume he’d had the least problem putting them “in the grid,” uncertain how he’ll measure up to their distances. I’d guess he feels that he would make a good showing so as to not embarrass himself…unless it’s all just another publicity stunt for the $40M bonus prize for the whole social media thing
