Award-winning training aid
THREE CLICKS TO A SMOOTHER SWING
Swingclick is a South African invention which has won awards at the PGA Merchandise Show in the United States for being one of the best golf training aids in terms of product ingenuity and simplicity. It has become the best-selling golf training aid in South Africa. The beauty of the new Swingclick Plus (R279) is that it is so easy to use. It works on the premise that great rhythm starts by finishing the backswing correctly, an area of the swing where club golfers often go wrong. The ability to finish the backswing on every swing helps create rhythm and tempo.
If you don’t finish your backswing, a golfer’s hands, body and legs work out of sync. The Swingclick, strapped to a golfer’s left forearm (for righthanders), provides a frame of reference. It clicks when a golfer reaches the top of the backswing. Warming up with the Swingclick before a round helps create muscle memory for that first tee shot of the day, and can help maintain a golfer’s rhythm for the rest of the round.
It also clicks at impact and the follow through, and this click at three key positions of the swing is excellent audio feedback for beginners, helping them create good structure and rhythm as they learn the game. You’re obviously not allowed to use any training aid during a competition round, but otherwise the Swingclick can be worn while playing.
The inventor of the Swingclick was Guim Vosloo, who owns a golf range at Maraisburg, near Soweto. He launched the original model at the London Golf Show in November 2014, and at the 2015 PGA Merchandise Show. Swingclick is currently trading in 13 countries.
Sunshine Tour pro Jaco Ahlers started using it in May last year as a drill in his practice routines, won the Zambian Open in June, and then had further wins in August and October.
