olf lessons can be a frus­trat­ing in­vest­ment. Even after a few, things of­ten get worse be­fore they get bet­ter and some­times it seems like things don’t im­prove at all. To cap it off, it can take months for a swing change to be in­grained to the point where it hap­pens nat­u­rally. Coaches of­ten talk about the dif­fer­ence be­tween feel ver­sus real and it’s part of the rea­son why some golfers don’t progress as quickly as they could or should, be­cause what they feel they are do­ing in their prac­tice and what they are ac­tu­ally do­ing is very dif­fer­ent.

But there’s a new train­ing aid set to change all this. It’s called the RoboGolfPro and the first de­vice hit UK shores at Fair­Weather Golf in Cam­ber­ley, Sur­rey. It is here we meet Cal­i­for­nian Nate Wei­d­ner, the direc­tor of in­struc­tion, who was so blown away by how fast the con­trap­tion got re­sults, he wanted to share it with more golfers fur­ther afield.

En­gi­neered in Ger­many and with a price tag of a mere $150,000, this in­tim­i­dat­ing-look­ing de­vice was the brain­child of PGA Tour player Scott Nei, who was frus­trated by his lack of im­prove­ment un­der nu­mer­ous in­struc­tors. Now fully de­vel­oped, it can boast PGA Tour play­ers Bryson DeCham­beau and Vaughn Tay­lor as proud users.
