- ELIMINATES SLICES ✔️ The No.1 fault in golf caused by over the top out to in swing path. Over the top swings are caused by poor transition & sequencing
- IMPROVES TRANSITION ✔️ Flexible shaft develops a smoother transition which prevents casting and over the top swings. Amateur golfers load the shaft too much in transition with the GForce Swing Trainer compared to professional golfers. Try feeling like you are keeping the shaft firm in transition as this will indicate improved sequencing.
- IMPROVES SEQUENCING ✔️ Sequencing means getting everything in the right order on the down swing transferring energy from the body into the club head. Most amateur golfers swing to hard from the top of the swing in transition releasing the club to early. Good players unwind from the ground up LEGS, HIPS, TORSO, ARMS & CLUB HEAD! Amateurs do it the opposite way around.
- DEVELOPS RHYTHM & TEMPO ✔️ The flexible shaft makes you more aware of the weight of the club head helping to develop a pendulum swing. As the body rotates out of the way on the back swing the arms swing back and the same on the follow through. This creates a pendulum swinging motion which improves rhythm & tempo. A feeling of awkwardness and loss of balance would tell you if it is wrong. Try swinging continually for 20 swings without loosing balance.
- IMPROVES SWING MECHANICS ✔️ Get everything above right and you are on the way to developing a consistent swing.GForce Swing Trainers come in a Driver, 7 iron and 54 degree wedge, the club heads are standard weight and of high quality with the exception of the shaft which is flexible. Invented by experienced PGA coach Stuart Small from the UK, Stuart realised there were certain elements of the golf swing that his students found difficult to learn because the golf swing is reliant on feeling vs overthinking which is destructive to the swing.Mid-High Handicap GolfersWith one of the most common faults in golf been an overtop swing which causes slices, Stuart found that the problem was in the transition between the backswing and downswing move that would make or break a golf swing. Coaching golfers of all abilities for the past 20 years I found a significant difference between the elite golfer Vs the mid to high handicapper in transition using the GForce Swing Trainer that wasn’t possible for the golfer to feel with a normal golf club.
Over the top swings are a result of poor sequencing. Sequencing is how we efficiently transfer energy from the ground through the body into the club head. Mid to high handicap golfers do it the opposite way round to elite golfers starting the downswing by pulling on the handle too much and too hard in transition causing the arms too move quicker than the body can turn, this steepens the shaft in the downswing making it impossible to swing from the inside resulting in an out to in swing path causing slices, pulls, chicken wing and general poor contact with no consistency or improvement.
If you are playing to a high level or have already developed your Tempo & Rhythm then GForce Swing Trainers will be of great use to you, the shaft is capable of identifying the slightest issue with sequencing. Pete Cowen coach to the world’s leading tour players is an advocate of the products and the science behind how they work. Elite players looking to fine tune swing mechanics will benefit greatly from the instant feedback from the feel of the swing and flight of the ball.
Typically, elite players don’t have issues with Tempo or Rhythm but more so with the transition (too forceful) or a swing out of sequence (Kinetic Chain) which will cause manipulations to rescue the shot to compensate for the miss fire in the swing. GForce Swing Trainers will help you to identify faults and develop a pure swing without compensations resulting in greater consistency, switching off your head from any destructive swing thoughts.
GForce Swing Trainers will develop the following areas of your swing.

Elite Golfer Transition
Looking at my elite golfers with the GForce Swing Trainer in transition you could mistake the flexible shaft for any normal golf shaft because there was very little load in the shaft compared to mid to high handicappers. This is because the elite golfer starts the downswing from the ground up, Legs, Hips, Torso, Arms, Hands. When you start from the ground up and leave the arms and club alone it helps the club shallow in transition because you are not applying and force to the handle and you don’t overload the shaft. Here is a great example of a professional in transition with the GForce Swing Trainer.
Amateur Golf Transition
I studied many of my students golf swings using the GForce Swing Trainer and could clearly see that pulling too hard on the handle would cause the shaft to overload in transition and steepen. This would make it impossible to square the face on impact causing shots to miss right of the target. Not only was the club swinging from out to in but the flexible shaft had too much load in it so it wouldn’t have time to unload at impact leaving the club face open. You can see in the picture this is a pulling action in transition overloading the shaft on the GForce Swing Trainer.
1 | Rotation
Rotation is key for developing Tempo. Poor rotation interrupts the free swinging motion of the arms and club because the chest gets in the way instead of rotating out of the way. Tempo is important because it gives the swing rhythm and sequencing, without tempo the swing is inconsistent from one day to the next.
2 | Continuous Swings
Once you have mastered the rotation, take your grip and posture with the GForce Swing Trainer and swing back and through without stopping, focus on turning your body out of the way on the backswing and through swing so the arms and club can swing back and through freely and uninterrupted like a pendulum. If done correctly you will maintain tension in the shaft without overloading it. If you don’t turn out of the way your body gets in the way of the arms which will wrap around your body AKA Chicken Wing, this causes the shaft to lose tension making contact inconsistent.
Slowing Arms Down | Unloading The Shaft
If you experience shots to the right of the target with the swing trainer, this is a result of not unloading the shaft correctly so the face aims right of target on impact. If the arms don’t slow down to transfer the energy to the club (Kinematic Sequence) the shaft won’t unload. To get a feeling of unloading the shaft and transferring the energy to the club head make some half swings without a ball and stop your hands when they line up with your left leg, you will see and feel the shaft unloading.Try hitting some half shots feeling the hands and arms slowing down and gradually work towards a full swing for improved sequencing.
