Swingclick Training Device improves Tempo, Rhythm, Consistency
More than 160 attendees from across the golf industry took part in the 25th Annual International Network of Golf Spring Conference May 31 – June 3, at the Mission Inn Resort & Club near Orlando, Fla. One of the highlights was the Demo Lab where attendees tested the Swingclick training device along with the latest golf equipment, distance measuring devices, and other top trending products.
Swingclick is a device that straps to a golfer’s forearm so it doesn’t impact the weight of the club or interfere with a golfer’s natural swing. The uniquely engineered training device helps golfers master the three most elusive and challenging concepts in golf: rhythm, tempo and consistency. Swingclick makes a clicking sound at three vital points: the top of the backswing, at impact, and on the follow-through creating a metronome for your mind.
Golf Digest Top 50 Teacher in America and Golf Magazine Top 100 Teacher Gary Gilchrist, who founded the Gary Gilchrist Golf Academy headquartered at Mission Inn, was extremely impressed with the ingenuity and simplicity of the Swingclick when he tested it at the ING Conference
“The Swingclick is the best swing aid that’s ever been made,” Gilchrist exclaimed when he put Swingclick through its paces with some of his top instructors at the Academy. “It provides the best practical feedback I’ve seen from a swing aid!”
When you begin your takeaway, Swingclick clicks when you are in the correct position at the top of the backswing. As you transition into your downswing, a second click occurs at impact when striking the ball. If you hear the click before impact, you are swinging too fast. The device will click a third time once you have completed your swing correctly ensuring a solid follow-through in a balanced position.
“I have a drill where my students pause at the top of their swing so that they can feel the position of the top of their backswing; now they can use the Swingclick to give them the audio feedback for this drill,” Gilchrist added.
One of the most common misconceptions is that the harder you swing your club, the further your ball will travel. Swingclick’s precision-engineered design proves that if you swing more slowly, the club has more time to generate club head speed allowing the ball to go further. Swingclick helps improve your accuracy, balance and consistency. Two time Major champion Jordan Spieth has clearly demonstrated in 2015 the importance of consistency and the ability to swing smoothly especially under pressure on golf’s biggest stages.
“Swingclick is the only swing trainer that you can use with your own clubs,” said Mike Quinn, who played on the South African Tour for 10 years before becoming a renowned teaching professional and the Managing Director of Swingclick. Strap it to your forearm and take it on the driving range or go play a round of golf and you’ll quickly see how it will help you master the tempo, rhythm and timing of your swing.”
Quinn added that after practicing with Swingclick, you will notice your rhythm will become more intuitive and consistent and your brain will automatically wait for the click.
