There is a scene in Tin Cup where Roy McAvoy is working with a bunch of training aids trying to get rid of the dreaded S word. One of the things about those training aids was that many of them were very complex to use. Some of them should come with an “Adult Supervision” warning label on them.
In trying to make the game more fun and enjoyable to play I believe that training aids need to be simple. I really like ones that fit into your stand bag! It makes it easier to use and you can have it on hand to use in your round.
In my Top 10 Training Aids of 2018 post I highlighted Grip Secret in the top 10. After getting a chance to use it a lot I love it. It’s compact in size but huge on game improvement. Click here to see me using it in action.
Grip Secret quickly attaches to your club and it allows you to take the proper grip. Back in my younger days there used to be a molded grip that was designed to be the “proper” grip for a club. It was on a heavy weighted club but you couldn’t put the grip on your clubs because it was illegal. Well that didn’t do a lot for practicing and taking it to the course.
When your out working on a range session and need that reminder you can put this on any club and use it. If you are on the course and struggling the Grip Secret is so small you can take it out of your bag and get that quick fix.
Dads Say So, there are currently 3 training aids that I keep in my bag at all time. Grip Secret is one of them. I love the simplicity of it. It is the best grip trainer I have ever used.
