Thumb Caddy
      The Thumb Caddy is a new golf training aid that focuses on the starting point for all golfers: the grip.  By stabilizing the thumb, the grip stays in its proper position throughout the swing resulting in increased muscle memory, and straighter more consistent shots.
      Simplicity is the key.  Just Snap It, Fit It and Grip It.  The Thumb Caddy fits on the shaft of any club and can be used by both right and left-handed players. This small, rubber coated device ensures the perfect grip and the correct club alignment every time by keeping your thumb in its proper place.  With a solid grip, everything else falls into place to develop a more effective and repeatable swing.
      The Thumb Caddy’s unique design also prevents gripping the handle too tightly, what’s commonly known as “the death grip”.  The Thumb Caddy can give anyone a hand and improve your game.
    The Thumb Caddy can be purchased in a three-pack with instructional DVD for $24.99 or as a single unit package complete with instructions for only $7.99. • www.GlobalGolfTrainingProducts.com  • 781.828.7747

Pivot For Power Swing Trainer
       
This new swing trainer “hears” impact of  club on ball and simultaneously “feels” the position of the golfer’s  back foot heel. If the golfer strikes the ball with his heel down, it  emits a short tone,  telling a golfer he was “late,” transferring weight to front foot.  For a golfer whose primary problem is failure to aggressively move forward before he strikes the ball, this really works!   In only a few minutes most decide to avoid that persistent late tone--and make a big effort to get forward faster!
        Golfers must post on their front leg (and unweight their back leg) in order to turn  their hips toward the target and keep the clubhead accelerating through  the ball, make crisp contact, and straight or even draw ball  flight.   The change this makes in a high handicapper’s golf swing is dramatic and permanent-- nobody wants to go back to fat shots and fade or slice! A typical amateur can make a significant improvement in his golf swing--hit more fairways and greens, and lower his handicap! • 858-759-6693 www.pivotforpower.com

SKLZ Gyro Swing
        The SKLZ Gyro Swing is the only training aid that gives a player the “feel” of a correct swing… on plane and with a full release (eliminating the dreaded slice that 85% of all golfers endure).
          A gyroscope in the clubhead spins at 20,000 RPM, and the force of this super-fast rotation makes the club literally “come alive” in your hands, keeping it square to an arc around your center, keeping your swing perfectly on plane. And if you start to go off plane—inside, outside, whatever—it actually fights that movement.
          You can feel the resistance and twisting in your hands if you come over the top or cast the club (swing flaws common to slicers). And, you’ll also feel it force your hands to turn over, exaggerating an early release if you haven’t shifted your weight in your downswing, or with a smooth, late release if you have.
          Whether you’re an average amateur who’s never known the feeling of a proper release, or a low handicapper who just needs to refine his game, there’s finally a swing aid that helps you bridge the gap between mechanics and feel.
