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 aid or something else that caught our eye.
The biggest difference between good golfers and mediocre ones are how the good acquit themselves from difficult situations. More often than not, the difficult situations arise when a typical shot has been misplayed, which forces the player to hit an uncomfortable shot. Luckily, The Swing Mechanix has delivered a fail-safe training aid to help tentative golfers develop more confidence in their short game.
The SX3 is an easy-to-use, confidence-building training aid that gives immediate and accurate feedback to sharpen your short game from different kinds of lies. The aid, which easily clicks into place atop your wedge, gives immediate feedback with an audible click from the device.
The click in the backswing lets you know that you have set your wrists properly, and as you continue your natural chipping motion, another click after impact indicates that you held the proper position through the strike of the ball.
The beauty of the product is that the feeling and feedback given to you by the SX3 can be practiced with or without a ball in front of you. Bad weather is no longer an excuse for a rusty short game. The patented technology gives the player immediate sensory feedback as to why and when their technique broke down.
Additionally, the short game calls for any number of shots depending upon ball position, pin position and course conditions. The SX3 adapts to each variation and club choice simply by adjusting the aid. The click in the backswing lets you know that the club is in the right position for the shot at hand, and the second click is a reaffirmation that your strike is made at the correct angle.
Whether you’re a 20-handicap looking to shave a few strokes off your score or a low-handicap player looking to get up-and-down more often, the Swing Mechanix SX3 will appeal to your core sensibilities. As a SxS reader, The Swing Mechanix is offering a 10% discount if you use the promo code “SWING10” at checkout.
