Edgewater, MD – If you watched any of the television coverage of the 94th PGA Championship this past weekend you saw what Dana Clark, inventor of the Swedge and CEO of Avid Golf saw….the need for the Swedge swing training aid!

Even the most elite golfers in the world struggled with their accuracy on The Ocean Course at Kiawah Island this past weekend.

“It reminded me just how difficult the game of golf is,” said Clark, “and the importance of continuously working on staying connected throughout your golf swing. I received an e-mail from a friend who was watching the tournament coverage on television saying she just saw the former #1 Player in the World, Tiger Woods, on the driving range with a golf towel tucked under his right arm working on his golf swing. I thought to myself, If only he had a Swedge right now, the outcome on Sunday might have been a little different?”

The fact is the Swedge isn’t just for mid to high handicappers; it’s for golfers at all skill levels. It helps you stay connected, improves your accuracy and increases both power and distance. Something every golfer, even the Tour Players, need to work on consistently.

About the Swedge

A little over two years ago, Dana Clark signed up for a golf lesson with her good friend and teaching Instructor, Winnie Sewell, to learn to play golf. After a few short weeks of taking lessons, she found out that she suffered from what so many other golfers out there struggle with – the dreaded “chicken wing” or “flying elbow.” It’s a swing flaw that plagues many amateur golfers and is the reason most mid to high handicappers hook or slice the golf ball.

To fix the problem, Clark’s instructor showed her the trusted Towel Drill, where the golfer places a towel or a headcover under their arm in an effort to cure the “flying elbow”   and keep them “connected” throughout their golf swing. At the top of the backswing, the towel should still be in place. Keeping the towel tucked under your arm creates more power, control and consistency. Golf instructors have been using this drill for years with much success. Dana thought the drill was helpful but felt a little ridiculous making golf swings on the driving range with an old headcover tucked under her arm. She wondered why no one had developed a training aid that could work better and take the place of the golf towel or  headcover that most people used.

After two years of research and development, Dana invented the Swedge swing training aid. The Swedge is a small, washable half-moon pillow covered with a durable nylon casing. It comes in three colors; black, red and blue and has a convenient clip that attaches right to your golf bag. It can be custom-logoed, even in small quantities for golf outings, promotions, gifts or tournaments prizes and is 100% Made in the USA. The Swedge is so effective and simple to use that it has everyone saying, “Why didn’t I think of that?”

The Swedge helps focus your attention on keeping your arm in the proper position, correcting several swing flaws simultaneously.
