Why the Swing Governorô trainer works, is
because it gives you real-time feedback on your
lower-body movements and when and what
you are doing wrong, so you can set about correcting the faults
with the Drills we have included. It is like having a coach with
you while you are practicing, so your practice time is
beneficial. Whats more, is that you can practice effectively in
front of a mirror, without a club, thus enabling you to practice
in your bedroom or your office. !
It works with all levels of golfers, as with
the Drills you only need to extend yourself to your bodies
capabilities, to enjoy crisper and more accurate ball striking
How does it detect the two
common swing faults?
The Swing Governorô drops out
on your Backswing
The Swing Governorô stays trapped
between your legs
The Fix: practice the
Drills using the Swing Governorô
Note: When the Swing Governorô drops out or
remains trapped between your legs, it really startles you and
you quickly quit your swing. It is as dramatic as if your pants
ripped while swinging!
What is a correct Lower-Body
The Hips rotate approx 36-42 degrees and tilt approx 6-7 degrees . The rear leg should stay flexed yet stable.
What should the Swing
Governorô do on a "good swing"
The Swing Governorô stays compressed just above the
knees from address to the top of the back-swing.
On the downswing the Swing Governorô "bumps" just the lowerbody back into impact postion & slips out, enabling the upperbody and club to release into the impact zone
How do I know
if the Swing Governorô will assist me
Try straddling a chair and make a practice swing. If you feel "tight" and unable to make a 80 degree shoulder turn while you
are straddling the chair, then the Swing Governorô will be of
assistance to you.
Why are there not other similar
products on the market
The Swing Governorô patent prohibits other products from being
compressed between the legs
Why is the lower body movement so
hard to explain and teach
As David Leadbetter states, this movement is a three-dimensional
move so it is difficult to tell someone to rotate, go forward
and downwards all at the same time. With the Swing Governorô all this is done
with no conscious effort.
Has the Swing Governorô been Bio-mechanically proven
Yes. The Swing Governorô has been independently tested using 3DMA swing analysis, as you can see on the graph, when using the Swing Governorô (green), Hip Tilt on the Backswing is reduced by 50 %. What does this mean to the average golfer? By reducing hip tilt you are also reducing Hip-Rotation. The more you turn on your backswing the more you have to try and turn on the way through, leading to inconsistent shots. Retention level (magenta) is incredibally high after the Swing Governorô is removed after just one swing. The Swing Governorô has made a massive improvement.
How does it differ from the Beach Ball Drill
The Swing Governorô has taken over from the beach ball drill. The Swing Governorô fits just above the knees and remains there during the backswing, unlike its predecessor the beach ball, it is designed to slip out on the downswing, so you can complete a full swing.
