First, the golf grip trainer forces you to place your hands into exactly the right position on the club. It also encourages you to maintain this correct grip through the back swing and then down into hitting the ball and the follow through. Having used the grip trainer a few times, my hands naturally started to fall into the correct position. Correcting an error that my lessons have failed to correct, no matter how many times it has been pointed out that my grip is slightly off.
Now my grip feels comfortable at the top of the back swing, a feeling that had previously gone. OK, professionals can correct your grip and show you how to hold the taylor made burner 2.0 properly, but it is so easy to go back to old habits if you aren't having regular lessons. By picking up the golf swing trainer, the grip trainer in the handle automatically moves your fingers into the right place, correcting nasty habits that you might be developing.
They are also, typically, shorter than most clubs whilst weighted and twisted so that they feel correct during the swing. With care, they can be used to practice indoors safely! This means that you can easily pick up the training aid and do a few practice swings each evening with burner 2.0 irons.
The second training element of this trainer is the swing training. Because of the weighting the proper path of the swing is slowly coached into your arms and when you go back onto the course or the range, you should feel you are hitting much better.
So today was my first trip out around a golf course since I've been using the swing trainer. Did I see any difference with taylor made r11 irons? Well, on the very first hole, a par 4, instead of losing the ball off to the right somewhere, with a 3-iron it soared straight down the fairway, much to my surprise. Which was a pity, as I'd aimed left and at a bunker, which I thought at over 240 yards was well out of reach. Sadly, a bounce or two and then my ball plugged into the bunker.
I wasn't upset - a straight hit with a carry of over 200 yards with a 3-iron is a vast improvement on my game with r11 irons for sale. I'll be using that swing trainer every night now to make sure that more are going dead straight and far!
Keith received his golf swing trainer as a birthday present, and is convinced that the cost of the practice aid has already been recovered by the reduction in lost golf balls, never mind the frustration saved in time wasted searching for them.
