When you step onto the 1st tee and pull out the driver, most golfers want two things: to swing easy, but also to hit the ball far. There’s nothing worse than the feeling of a rushed golf swing — and the ensuing shots almost never turn out well.
That’s where the Orange Whip comes in. The training aid has become a mainstay in the golf world among amateur golfers and professionals alike. The aid features a longer shaft that’s more flexible and heavier than you might expect, which helps exaggerate the feeling of your driver while also allowing you to build your golf muscles.
The original Orange Whip Trainer was designed to synchronize your golf swing and the new Orange Whip LightSpeed was designed specifically to increase your clubhead speed while maintaining control. It’s the perfect combination of power and accuracy.
