Press Release - June 2015
SOUTH AFRICA - Swingclick was recognized by the attendees of the 25th Annual International Network of Golf Spring Conference as one of the best new products for 2015. Nearly 160 attendees took part in the annual industry gathering, May 31 - June 3, hosted by the Mission Inn Resort & Club near Orlando, Fla.
During the Demo Lab portion of the conference, attendees were able to test the Swingclick along with other training aids and equipment.
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 when he tested Swingclick.
"The Swingclick is potentially the best swing aid that's ever been made," Gilchrist exclaimed when he put Swingclick through its paces with some of his instructors at the Academy. "It provides the best practical feedback I've seen from a swing aid!"
Swingclick is a device that straps to a golfer's forearm so it doesn't impact the weight of the club. The training device makes a clicking sound at three vital points: the top of the backswing, at impact, and on the follow-through.
"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.
The key to great rhythm is finishing your backswing. A smooth takeaway followed by a smooth transition creates more consistency and control in your swing which leads to lower scores.
"Swingclick is one of the only swing trainer that you can use with your own clubs," said Mike Quinn, a former tour professional, instructor 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."
Swingclick is available for purchase at Amazon.com, Amazon.ca (search Swingclick) and at swingclickgolf.com. The retail price is $29.99. For more information, go to swingclickgolf.com.
