Golfers are gear heads, equipment nerds and endless tinkerers, so when one of those late-night infomercials comes on promising instant results after having a few drinks, we listen a little more intently and have a tendency to get a little click-happy online. That’s where our Late Night Online Purchases franchise comes in, a review of a certain piece of equipment, training aids or something else that caught our eye.
Training aids, swing fixes and warm up trainers all typically have a few things in common: there are a lot of them and they usually only accomplish one thing. That’s why the Saber Golf Trainer caught our eye after being named the Best New Product Winner at the 2017 PGA Merchandise Show.
Developed by PGA Golf Professional Craig Hocknull, the Saber Golf Trainer is equal parts training aid, warm up aid and a self-diagnosing swing fixer. The Saber’s unique design allows for instant feedback on the practice range, while also doubling as the perfect system to help keep your game sharp when making time to get to the course is simply out of the question.
Aside from its versatility, the Saber Golf Trainer is also a space saver. Instead of heading to the range looking like Tin Cup, the Saber slides easily into your golf bag and would go unnoticed unless you were looking for it. Gone are the days of taking something to the course to help your full swing, your short game, your fitness and your putting. The Saber has it all covered.
The entire system is made up of four different units that provide different resistance and feedback depending on each golfer’s size and strength. Each piece retails for $119.99 and can help you get through the spotty weather until golf season proper rolls around in a few months.
