Setup Eye

The world’s first handheld alignment system for golfers, with 100% accurate viewfinder, active alignment and target lock technology.
* One of the most important aspect of any golfers game is the alignment/setup.
* The PGA website tells us that 95% of all “swing flaws” can be traced back to the setup position. Or as 18 time major champion Jack Nicklaus once said  “If you setup to the ball poorly, you’ll hit a lousy golf shot even if you make the greatest swing in the world”.
* Imagine if you could eliminate the guesswork from your setup – if you could be sure of the perfect setup every stroke, on the golf course as well as on the practice ground!

SMARTGOLF

The Smart Golf club is the world’s first swing analyzer and practice club with built-in sensors all in one device, that allows players to practice their swing anytime and anywhere. At home, in your office, or even at your favorite bar! The app follows and analyzes your swing and offers coaching advice. The Smart Golf club has 9-axis sensors including gyrometer & accelerometer sensors built-in, which track the club’s movement and measure every detail of the golf swing precisely. This data is collected and transferred with the club’s very own Wi-Fi transmitter to the Smart Golf App. In the App, the swing data is displayed and visualized through a 3D customization avatar, providing a golf training experience. The Smart club fully measures the swing, including the maximum club speed and face movement through the impact zone and even provides you an impact analysis function, which shows you every detail of your face and path angle. Therefore, SMARTGOLF users will get a better understanding on their swing mechanism and what exactly is happening on the impact point. Unlike other mobile swing trainer and analyzer, the Smart Golf App also transforms the Smart club into a golf simulator by allowing users to play on realistic golf courses in its game mode. SMARTGOLF users are able to connect the club to all available Smart devices (Smartphone, Tablet, Laptop, PC) and watch their swing on the company’s App (available for iOS, Android & Windows).

Trump: The Best Golf Advice I Ever Received

The host of the reality show The Apprentice and now the president of the United States of America  presents a unique collection of golf advice. From Palmer and Player, Mickelson and Vijay to Pat Boone, Stone Phillips, and even Yogi Berra, these players, teachers, businesspeople, and celebrities will help you play better and score lower.

Everyone who plays golf has that little nugget of information they turn to on the course. Donald Trump, himself an avid golfer, asked his friends, colleagues, and playing companions to offer thoughts on everything from the mental game to the swing to putting to playing golf the right way. And golfers being what they are, none could resist sharing words of wisdom.

So here we find Vijay Singh telling us about playing simply: “You don’t need to get your golf swing by going through video cameras and stuff like that. Just kind of go out there and find yourself.” Baseball Hall of Famer Ozzie Smith talks about not overswinging: “Just learn to allow the club to do what it’s supposed to do . . . because the ball is sitting still.” Actor Michael Douglas has a specific routine to slow his tempo—he says his wife’s name, and doesn’t even think of starting to bring the club down until he gets to “Jones.”

Taken together, these entries create a unique handbook, covering every aspect of the game—and ranging from the lighthearted to the deadly serious.

The 8 Traits Of Champion Golfers: How To Develop The Mental Game Of A Pro

Do you swing too fast, try too hard, lose concentration, lack confidence, get angry, putt poorly under pressure, finish exhausted, or suffer for hours after a hard game?
The most valuable tool a golfer can bring to the course is a strong mental game. Yet many golfers take this for granted, focusing almost entirely on grip, stance, or swing technique. The 8 Traits of Champion Golfers is a unique and persuasive approach to becoming a better golfer. Sports psychologist Dr. Deborah Graham and Jon Stabler identify eight personality traits that separate champions from the rest and give you steps for improving your game and making it more enjoyable. Using their GolfPsych program, Graham and Stabler challenge you to explore the elements of your personality and measure them against the traits of such successful golfers as Lee Janzen, Dave Stockton, Michelle McGann, and Gary McCord, all of whom have worked with Dr. Graham. With player examples and a careful explanation of why each trait is important to the game of golf, Graham discusses:
-Focus and Concentration
-Abstract Thinking
-Emotional Stability
-Dominance and Competitiveness
-Tough-Mindedness
-Self-Assurance
-Self-Sufficiency
-Optimum Arousal and Managing Tension
Complete with charts, self-tests, and playing tips, The 8 Traits of Champion Golfers is a research-based guide to the mental game of golf, making it possible for a golfer to find their “zone” and play like a champ.

PutterSquare Training Square

Hitting the “sweet spot” and squaring the face of the putter at impact are foundations of great putting. The PutterSquare is a putting aid shaped like a bar of soap and provides feedback through the direction it travels post impact. Impact the PutterSquare at the bottom of your swing arc or else you will miss it entirely. Impact it properly and the PutterSquare will travel in a direction reflecting your putter face position at impact. After a few minutes your stroke will be more solid through the ball and you will intuitively correct putting mechanics.In the below video PutterSquare inventor David Handy sits down with Charlie Nance and talks about why and how he invented the PutterSquare.

Zero Full Swing Set

The Zero club is the only club designed to help you feel the plane of the clubface. Unlike classic golf clubs, it has a rectangular grip and zero loft (i.e. the clubface is in line with the shaft). Learning is accelerated through involving several senses – you can see the plane of the clubface and, at the same time, feel it. The aim of training with the Zero club is to develop a conscious ability to control the ball flight.
Zero loft: Makes the plane of the clubface, the key-stone of each club, visual
The rectangular grip: Learn to feel and sense the clubface through your hand position during the swing

Sore Point Pain Relief Gel

This is a golf aid that’ll give the avid golfer a warm feeling on those pain points – elbows, wrists, knees, wrists, shoulders – that plague all frequent players. Inventor Dr. Tara O’Brien-Adkins has developed an organic, pleasant smelling remedy for all types of inflammatory ailments from sore joints, stiff muscles and even mosquito bites. SorePoint automatically elevate their games and allow players to expend maximum effort on every drive. It’s especially effective on tendinitis, or “golfer’s elbow” – overuse of the muscles and tendons of the forearm, leading to inflammation and pain around the elbow joint. The main culprit is vibration up the club shaft caused when the ball is struck. As this motion is repeated dozens of times on every round, it’s no wonder that pain continues in many golfers long after the round has ended. This analgesic, all-natural oil, roll-on or cream takes care of that.

Flex-Head Performance Golf Tees

FAQ

1)Is it “really” unbreakable?
A: It’s warranted against breakage. It can be broken, but it’s extremely rare. About 1 in 6,500 in use results in a break.

2)If I break it, how do I get a new one?
A: Just send us the broken tee and we will promptly send you a new one. We will pick up the postage.

3)Why are there holes in the tee?
A: The holes are part of the design aspect of the “snap-flex” low resistance shaft. They provide compression relief so the resistance to bending is reduced. Point the holes towards your target. The G3 has a nice pointer on the shoulder showing the direction.

4)Does the tee always stay put with the fluted stake?
A: Not always. The G3 does give you feedback. If the tee hasn’t moved, it’s likely you have good sweet spot contact as little deflection has occurred. If the tee flies out, it’s likely more of the shaft was in contact with the club face and the bending moment was increased. If it flies out, it will be located directly in front or behind you 90% of the time.

5)Is the tee USGA legal?
A: Yes it is.

HEMI Rod

One of the most critical aspects of the golf swing is the position of the head during the swing. Many professional golfers and instructors will tell you, keeping your head still during the swing is absolutely critical. Others say some lateral motion is normal. In any case, head motion is hard to detect during the swing. The Head Motion Indicator (HEMI) Rod enables you to see this motion very easily and accurately.

Face Angler

Face Angler is a simple tool made to check your club’s face angle throughout your swing. No more looking up at the club head at the top of your swing. Use Face Angler together with swing path training aids and you will be able to train for the two critical elements to a good swing; swing path and club face angle.You can also use Face Angler together with video equipment to get a good idea of what is happening at impact during a real swing. Since the hands and grip are going much slower than the club head, it is possible to see much more detail during a swing, particularly near impact. With the Face Angler installed, you can zoom in on the hands/lower chest area during a taping sequence and note the club face angle by looking at the Face Angler.

ALIGNMED Posture shirt

This is a review by Paul Wilson the inventor of ignition golf & a swing based on the Iron Byron Swing Machine.

AlignMed Technology Consists of:
Neurobands– Bands are composed of variable elasticity that mirror the contractive properties of muscles that train soft tissue and joints. This strengthens and aligns the body naturally by targeting specific anatomic zones, creating functional pull and neuromuscular stimulation.
Muscle Mapping– The strategic placement of the neurobands; augments the kinetic movement of the muscles and creates the exact amount of tension and support required for each muscle.

The Lag Rag is a piece of cloth that attaches to the end of the head of the club
What does it do?
-Like the fins on a dart, the Lag Rag naturally straightens your swing path and also helps you feel the rotation of the club head through impact.
– Makes you feel the entire shaft flex, and the dragging end of the trainer gives tremendous resistance through the hitting area.
-Increase strength, flexibility, and speed all in 20 swings a day.

Paint Golf Aid

Facing Up to Bunker Shots
Knowing the mechanics of a bunker swing is important, but it’s even more important to know how the club works through the sand. If you understand what the bounce on the bottom of the wedge should do, you’ll intuitively make swings that skim more and dig less. There’s simple connection between the bounce and the face: When you can see the face, the bounce is doing what it should do. My favourite way to reinforce this is to smear washable finger paint on the face of a wedge. Set up with your hands slightly back at address and the face open- so you can see the paint- and make swings so that you can still see the paint at the finish. If you’re digging too deep, the paint will get wiped off.

The Swing Boss

Swing Boss $38.29
9 Reviewer
Pros
- Can be used anywhere that has enough room to swing a club (Ideal tool for working on your swing, particularly indoors during the off-season) - Note: if you don't have enough height indoors to swing your club, you can choke down on your clubs - Great when you want to be quiet (hitting real golf balls is loud, not ideal when the family is sleeping) - Simple and easy to use - Best solution for someone who wants to practice all year round - Can be used with other golf aids for more rounded feedback. For example: Swing profile for video analysis and a swing analyzer (eg.3 Bays GSA Swing Analyzer) that goes in the butt end of your club. Combining these aids will make it a really good high tech practice setup.
Cons
- Only shows club face impact and not swing path. Club face impact is not the only factor for ball curvature (slice, hook..etc) Read below in effectiveness for further explanation - Have to use tees to hit iron shots (cannot hit off the mat directly) - Set-up can be tedious because you have to bend down each time to place the ball on the tee since you cannot hit directly off the mat

Center Gravity Ball (CGB)

Center Gravity Ball $39.95
7.1 Reviewer
Pros
- Provides accurate feedback through ball movement (if your initial setup is good) - If your stroke is off, the CGB won’t lie. - Easier on your back than similar aids (Ie. the pill, putting wheel, etc...because you don't have to stand up the ball every time). You can just maneuver it into place with your putter rather than bending down and having to stand it up every time. - No matter what your putting style is, this aid gives golfers feedback on their impact - The geometric shape of the Center Gravity Ball provides better feedback than other aids (refer below for further explanation) - Can use with wedges (chipping) - Portable
Cons
- Setting up the CGB can be time consuming - Not easy to align - More expensive than competitors (the pill and putter wheel) but on the flip side it provides better feedback

Nothing that comes close to it!
Cons
- Lacks on the drawing tools (other apps have different colors and shapes you can draw with) - All features worked perfectly except the auto plane line feature (On the positive side, you can manually adjust the plane line in the app) - Even if you are able to figure out your swing fault with the app, you might not know how to fix it. That being said, you need to know that there is a problem before you can fix it and that is what the app can provide...a greater chance that you will figure out your swing fault. - Not available on andriod devices

- Can use the training grip with all your own clubs, during practice or play - There are different sizes (jr, small, regular, womens) - Can adjust it to be neutral, weak, or strong with the scope - inconspicuous device (other players won't notice if you're using the device) - Feels like you're holding your normal grip cause the bottom is your own grip
Cons
- Not Easy to take on & off clubs; the difficulty will depend on the the grip size & type (multiple customers on various review sites stated that) - After a few swings the grip aid moves, then you have to realign the aid with the scope - Does not address all aspects of a good grip (grip pressure, short thumb vs long thumb etc. read more below in effectiveness) - If you have really big hands or small hands it might be an issue if you pick the wrong size (I say this because you can't open up the package and try the aid out ex. small male hands might need a womens grip rite)
