Slow Motion Method Facilitated By Training Aid

Practicing with the training aid, slow swinging, and then precisely aligning the small hole on the pin is preparation for Ben Hogan’s slow motion drill. It forces a golfer to increase his precision throughout the swing arc and especially at impact point to the extreme. When slowly guiding the hole on the imaginary wire, and then striving to align the small hole on the pin without hitting the borders of the hole, with full attention—as if fighting for life—one can feel pins and needles throughout the body, arms, hands, fingers. That is wanted.

This feeling of precision must then be transferred to the swing. If a golfer jumps directly to swinging with speed, that feeling will be an impossibility. The solution to this problem, in transition, is Ben Hogan’s slow motion drill. The golfer practices a slow backswing, downswing, and now he has extra time to call up the sensations he programmed on the device. He has the time to call up the feeling of extreme precision, ever so slightly hitting the ball on the sweet spot and continuing with the follow through. For more detailed description you can check eBook preview, chapter “Introduction to the training method.”

The training aid is preliminary meant for practice with a driver, but it can (and should) be used for irons also. For irons with bigger lofts, small improvisations in regard to the small plate with a hole are necessary.

Here is a short video from the eBook “Testing The Solar Sweetspot Training Method” that shows Rick Malm practicing with the training aid:

Where and how to install?

You can install it wherever you have enough space for the whole swing with a driver (or other club). Otherwise we suggest a place where you will have peace and will be able to absorb yourself in the practice.

On the bottom side of the device there is a strong moisture resistant adhesive tape, and you should press it on an even and clean floor.

      Hello, it is attached with double sided tape, so it can be easily removed from one club and attached to another. The training aid package comes with one reserve pad, however any double sided tape available in ordinary supermarket can be used.

      Regards,
