Tom’s Favorite Training Aids!

Below find my all time favorite teaching aids. I feel they in fact do what that claim. They produce either a feel or a structure where you need it relative to your own personal swing issues. These aids I have found most helpful for the student to practice with building great and in fact correct habits.

Knowledge is Power!

Experience–the new standard in golf game improvement technology. Our program will reveal the secrets of exactly what separates the golfer you are from the golfer you want to be! is not a generic golf statistics program!


We want everyone to play the best golf they can, so we developed the Explanar – a patented golf training aid to simplify the way to learn, train and improve your optimum golf swing. The golf swing is one of the most complex bio-mechanical movement performed in any sport and most people are only ever taught verbally.

The Explanar is a mechanical aid that helps users learn by feeling not thinking – like training wheels on a bicycle, providing support and feedback that you can feel. Golf coaches find it easier to teach this complex movement with an Explanar, improving the way students learn and play and it is used by many of the World’s top golf professionals and coaches. Having an Explanar at home and using it for a few minutes a day enables users to practice and groove a perfect swing and create a muscle memory that is automatically recalled by your sub-conscious when you play. Using Explanar for 5 minutes a day is like hitting 150 balls at a range – That’s over 1000 practice swings a week – without the time and expense of travelling to a practice ground. You can imagine the effect this level of practice alone would have on your game, but imagine the effect practicing your perfect “on plane” swing every time you swing.

Explanar improves the distance and accuracy of your shots by teaching a more consistent swing, and is suitable for golfers of all abilities. Explanar has already helped thousands of golfers improve their swing and the way they play golf.

The Explanar was invented by PGA Master Professional Luther Blacklock, who used his own experiences as a top golf coach to create a training aid that helps perfect your golf swing.

Even before the first swing, the Swingyde will assist the player with setup and alignment to the target.

Assist Swing Trainer: A durable non-elastic strap, the Armaster connects the upper arms to the body when addressing the ball during backswing, impact and follow through positions.

Impact Bag w/DVD: Every player attempts to get the club on line & square at impact. A breakdown of the left wrist and collapse of the leading arm at that moment are two of the most common problems faced by players of all skill levels. Impact Bag is one of the most popular training aids of all time for the following reason – there is only one moment of truth in the golf swing – Impact! This device teaches the correct position and feel for that moment.Using the Impact Bag in conjunction with the Self Teaching Board (for swing path & setup) you will develop virtually all the elements of a consistent, repeating and powerful swing.DVD includes instructions for filling & caring for the Impact Bag, as well as popular drills used by Dr. Gary Wiren.

Medicus Dual-Hinge Irons: The original and best line of hinged training clubs just got even better. There are two full swing clubs used and endorsed by more than 70 PGA pros. The 5-iron is the club most people are familiar with, but the driver is a must for consistency. Both clubs have a hinge mechanism which breaks down when a flaw occurs in a players swing. This instant feedback will improve timing, tempo, takeaway and swing like never before. The new adjustable hinge lets you vary the tension of the hinge, while the green alignment indicator (on the hinge) provides visual feedback for path.

No 3-putt: This cup reducer fits snugly inside the hole to make your practice cup smaller, and does not damage the green. Golf pros have long known the benefits of putting to a smaller practice target: many of them have used dimes on the green as they warmed up.The No 3 Putt Cup reducer has the added benefit of actually allowing you to hole putts, thereby experiencing the successful sound of the ball dropping into the hole. The addition of the smaller inner ring make the hole even smaller, having the psychological effect of making a standard size hole seem much bigger than it actually is. This effect can be a very powerful confidence builder on those crucial two footers.

Pin Balls: Designed to teach the player how to square the putter at impact, these challenging shiny balls are so challenging standard golf balls will be easy to putt by comparison. Because the balls are joined in the middle, they will not roll straight unless perfectly struck.We have had many a contest with these in our office and believe us, they’re addictive!
