Revenge of the Golf Gods by Howard Jahre

Ben Hogan, considered to be the greatest striker of the golf ball, would beat balls on the practice range until his hands bled. He once said that in a good round, he hit just three shots exactly the way he wanted. He understood that golf is more a game of misses than a game of perfection. Until a brash young amateur attempts to prove him wrong. When Gordon Howard, trust fund baby and amateur golfer par excellence, comes to the sudden realization that his cushy job working for his father’s mega hedge fund has been a colossal mistake, his world free-falls into a tailspin. Searching for fulfillment and meaning to his life, he throws caution to the wind and embarks on a mission to become a professional golfer on the PGA tour. His goal is to win the coveted US Open. Amidst the pressure of his level headed girlfriend to abandon his pipedream, Gordon is contacted by a man he has never met, who offers him what he has been desperately searching for, an infallible golf swing. But the price Gordon pays for such perfection is much more than he ever bargained for.

Golf Dreams: Writings on Golf by John Updike

John Updike wrote about the lure of golf for five decades, from the first time he teed off at the age of twenty-five until his final rounds at the age of seventy-six.

Golf Dreams collects the most memorable of his golf pieces, high-spirited evidence of his learning, playing, and living for the game. The camaraderie of golf, the perils of its present boom, how to relate to caddies, and how to manage short putts are among the topics he addresses, sometimes in lyrical essays, sometimes in light verse, sometimes in wickedly comic fiction. All thirty pieces have the lilt of a love song, and the crispness of a firm chip stiff to the pin.

Pitch Grip

THE IDEA BEHIND PITCH GRIP IS TO SHOW GOLFERS THE SIMPLICITY OF THE THROWING MOTION THAT EXIST WITHIN THE GOLF SWING.

The Pitch Grip trains the right hand to maintain lag pressure.
What is lag pressure? The lag pressure is a pressure and ‘driving force’ in your hands/grip.

Pitch Grip accomplishes this by having the left hand form built into the grip. The golfer enjoys the same leverage and pressure points the right hand normally feels, without the overpowering left hand.

Where is the lag pressure stored?
The Trigger Finger Channel

Increasing the circumference for index finger control gives noticeable feedback to the golfer.
The Trigger Finger Channel makes it possible for golfers of all levels to understand how the index finger can actually control the club head. Just like throwing a ball, the right hand has coordination that will be understood in the golf swing with the help of this feature.

Greenkeepers PosiSet Counter Balance Weight

Create a positive setting of the club in the back swing with PosiSet. Setting the club allows for a slight delay in the transition from the backswing into the downswing. By counter weighting the golf grip, you put more weight in the golfer’s hands, therefore increasing hand speed which correlates into a faster club head speed at impact, resulting in more distance and better shot control.

Hank Haney’s Putting Impact System

75% of where the ball rolls is determined by the aim of the putter face at impact… if it is square, putts will fall. The Putting Impact System has one purpose – show the position of the face when it impacts the ball. Learn to slide the Impact plate straight forward. The plate magnetically snaps squarely back into place to keep your practice session running smooth.

A Good Walk Spoiled: Days and Nights on the PGA Tour by John Feinstein

In the highly acclaimed bestseller A Good Walk Spoiled, John Feinstein captures the world of professional golf as it has never been captured before. Traveling with the golfers on the PGA Tour, Feinstein gets inside the heads of the game’s greatest players as well as its struggling wannabes. Meet superstars like Nick Price, who nailed a fifty-foot putt at the seventeenth to win the British Open, and Paul Azinger, who marked his return from a bout with cancer with an emotional appearance at the Buick Open. Go behind the scenes for Davis Love III’s unforgettable come-from-behind victory in the Ryder Cup. In golf, Feinstein eloquently relates, the line that separates triumph from disappointment is incredibly fine. “One week you’ve discovered the secret to the game; the next week you never want to play it again”.

Neurogrip

We are very excited to introduce another golf aid to be reviewed on golfaidreviews.org!!! Thank you Exodus Golf for giving us this great opportunity to review your product!
“The Neurogrip is a 3 finger golf glove that is specifically engineered and designed to perform the functions of the dominant hand during the golf grip.” The way the glove is made keeps the forefinger and thumb exposed. This enhances a golfer’s awareness by these more sensitive fingers and creates the “neuroplasticity effect”. We will talk more about this effect and how it can benefit a golfer in our full review so stay tuned!!! Meanwhile check the Neurogrip out on their website: www.exodusgolf.com

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

Pros
- Free to try, Easy to use, App works really well - Makes swings easy to compare so you can find your swing fault (refer below in review for further explanation) - The setup is hardest part without a stand (I made a diy stand) - Great app for practice (refer below in review for further explanation) - Revolutionary technology!!!! 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

GripIt Rite

$21.11
8.6 Reviewer
Pros
- 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)
