Tired of practicing your swing for weeks on end with nothing to show for it? Turn to the Swingyde golf training aid, which helps you achieve greater distance and accuracy each time you step on the course. The Swingyde works intuitively, with a clip that attaches to the shaft of your club on one end, and a built-in rest that touches your left forearm on the other. The rest encourages your wrist to cock properly during the swing, helping improve your swing plane, swing tempo, clubface alignment, impact position, and follow through. Now you can know what it feels like to swing like a pro. The Swingyde is lightweight and easy to attach, and works for both right- and left-handed golfers.

This is a GREAT product! I have been playing golf for over …
This is a GREAT product! I have been playing golf for over 20 years, and in my time playing I have to say this is one of the best products I have ever used. I have been taught by top 100 golf instructors and have read numerous books on the various fundamentals of the golf swing, and in only 3 range sessions I am hitting the ball more on target and am also hitting the ball 10-15 yards further. At first, I had a very difficult time in mastering the correct swing, however after every session that passes I find that the correct swing is becoming more ingrained. This product is good for both seasoned and new golfers alike. I hope my experience is similar to yours.
If you buy this product you NEED to know this
I’ve been playing golf seriously for twelve years. During this time I’ve tinkered with my swing more times than I should have, but this experimentation (as well as 50+ lessons) has given me some insight into the golf swing. My lowest index was 3.2 a few years back and currently it’s 9.6.
Dude…..Buy it!!!! This thing is amazing….
I have attempted to play the puzzling game of golf since 2007 with very inconsistent results. I have experienced moments of triumph and bouts of pure agony. I am not un-athletic and have above average hand/eye coordination. My results on the course however have been very inconsistent in spite of my efforts. I have read books, bought training aides, and taken lessons. I play better than my friends who play less than me but I was still terrible. I went out to a local par 3 a few weeks ago and I was shanking the ball on every shot which even for me was disheartening. My plan was to put my clubs down and not touch them for 6 months, then sell them. I hate to say it.. but I was about to quit. So I googled, “best golf training aide” and one of the first things that came up was the Swingyde. My initials thoughts are “useless piece of plastic” if anyone remembers the Dana Carvey stand-up skit… But I figured what do I have to lose? So this unimpressive piece of plastic shows up 2 weeks ago in a box with a dvd, sweat band, and really cool rubber band. I felt ashamed… duped again by a unscrupulous entrepreneur mercileesly taking advantage of my lust for golfing excellence. So I put the thing on my 9 iron and make my typical hack. My left forearm isn’t mating with the swingyde’s pocket on the backswing and certainly not the follow through. So I take a deep breath and slow things down. Instead of keeping my head still and foocused on the target I watch my arms go back to insure my forearm makes love to the tip of the swingyde. After a few tries I consistently get the swing guide to say “yes” instead of “no”. The follow through is a little trickier but eventually I get that too. After I little while(20 minutes) I can feel that I am more in control. On the hilariously outdated DVD the guy (RIP) says the golf swing is not a “thought process” its “just forming a habit with our muscles”. So for the next week I spend 20 minutes each morning and night swinging my 9 iron with the swingyde attached. I can tell when swings are good and swings are not good and the good ones happen more frequesntly. I have a shag carpet that has been in my house since 1984 and anytime I swing well it leaves a nice divot and I can tell how the club head came through at impact. I could for whatever reason hit a driver decently and putt but I was garbage with my irons. So after a week of my in home training sessions I finally had time to visit my local “executive 9 hole course”. They should really call these middle management courses. Anyway I get to the first tee and I’m tense and as tight a Kardashian’s face after a botox treatment and chunk my first shot. My thought is “useless piece of plastic.” I get to the second hole which is a uphill 136 yard par 3 obviously with a back pin position. I suck so I have to use my 7 iron and a tee, so I’m not too proud. This time I took some deep breaths and thought about the hottest girlfriend I ever had, but more importantly when I took my two practice swings I imagined the swingyde was lovingly hugging the grip of my club. I addressed the ball, pulled my club back and let God take care of the rest. What I felt can be best described by one of my favorite authors John Updike. He said, “hitting a pure golf shot is a religious experience.” It felt like I hit the best iron shot of my life. I felt like I made that ball my b****. It hits the green rolls and lands about 10 feet from the pin, which for me…is amazing. I looked around and saw I was alone. Probably because it was 8:22am on a Thursday. I felt like a Greek God. I decided well I’ll get real crazy and hit my ball off the ground with no tee and try to replicate my previous shots awesomeness. I threw a ball down on the tee box, went through my routine, and struck it. This one was even better. I really trapped the ball between my club and the ground, heard that fantastic smack, saw a beavertail fly through the air and my ball soar trough the air gently landing on the green and rolling 4 fee away from the hole. That was this morning, and if you’re still reading this you can probably tell I love the swing guide. It could be $400 because that’s how much I was about to blow on lessons. And this dumb thing has me striking the ball in ways I never thought possible. I want to give it as a present to everyone I know who has even heard of golf. I want to fly out to Australia and find whoever made this thing and have his offspring marry my daughters. All kidding aside I have never written a “online review” for anything in my life but the swingyde is freaking awesome. I’ve only been using it two weeks and it has probably taken years off my futile attempts at trying to get better. I havent even put it on my driver yet but I know when I do I’ll be crushing it. I gave it to my really hot young girlfriend who never swung a club and after a few swings even she looked like Natalie Goublis. I have the thing next to me right now while I write this review. I even sleep with it at night. If you want to hit pure shots and actually enjoy golf please I implore you buy it. It will be the best $30 you ever spent. It was for me. God bless. Thank you. Hail to the Redskins.
Highly highly recommended!
I am 61 years old and picked up golf three years ago. I’ve spent over $3000 in lessons and progress has been slow primarily, as I found out, because I never “felt” wrist hinge correctly… I bought this product a few days ago at the recommendation of my new golf instructor and went to the driving range today… It was “a welcome to golf“ event. I had been hitting a seven iron 130 yards with relatively flat trajectory; today – first day of use – I was hitting towering seven iron shots 145 yards with a three quarter swing… Still have a long way to go with my golf swing but I wish I had discovered this product when I got started three years ago. Highly highly recommended!
The Swingyde is a must buy product!
If you want an inside out swing from start to finish, this is the right product for you. I maximized the utility of the swingyde by installing it on my David Ledbetter Swing Guide Pro. Now I can train myself with the right grip, a resounding click at release, and a smooth, inside out swing from start to finish. I use the Swingyde with my left hand and arm only: I make a strong effort to keep the “sheperd’s crook” on my left forearm for as long as reasonable. As it happens, the Swingyde leaves my left wrist at impact, but reattaches shortly thereafter. For me, that is a good thing.
It helped me understand the finish better and now I have much better control for my …
Bought this with the high praise from teaching professionals. My miss was a pull draw and minutes after using this I realized what was causing it. It helped me understand the finish better and now I have much better control for my ball flight. I understand how to hit a draws and fades better as well.
Best training device I’ve ever had
Best training device I’ve ever had! Have had problems for some time now with shanks. Have tried everything including lessons from 2 different professional instructors but it just got ingrained. This devise (along with a full length mirror) have helped tremendously. I have attached one to a spare club and carry it to the course with me and take a practice swing or two before taking out the club I will actually use and the feel sticks with me. Eventually I will get a permanent feel (I hope). And, no, it doesn’t slow my game down. I play 18 in just over two hours. And, yes, I know it’s not legal but I’m not using it in competition or with scores posted for handicaps.
Great tool, easy to use.
I was introduced to this via my PGA Pro and is a great swing aide to make sure you are going on the right plane during the backswing and follow through. If I get out of sync on the course, I always use this on the range to check my setup. It is also a great tool you can use in the house when everyone has gone to bed to check your swing and take a few hundred swings to make it muscle memory. It also says it can be used for putting and various other drills, but I’ve not tried it.
but what a great product! This was recommended to us by a …
Very expensive for a little piece of plastic, but what a great product! This was recommended to us by a golf pro at a lesson, so we were able to try it out before we purchased it. It trains or corrects the beginning and also the end of your swing. I’m a new golfer, so this will prevent me from developing an incorrect swing. My fiance has been golfing for years, so it has helped him improve his swing. It’s handy if you have a club that you don’t use that much so you don’t have to attach and detach it constantly. Like I said, it’s pretty pricey, but gotta credit the developer for something so simple and effective. He or she has probably retired and is playing every day now!
