Use this training aid to add swing speed and hit longer drives
Making a full turn on the backswing is one of the earliest swing tips golfers get, and it’s advice that’s relevant to all levels of golfers — from newbies to the PGA Tour’s best. Yet until recently, there hasn’t been a great way to work on it.
Enter GOLF Top 100 Teacher George Gankas and his new training aid, the GBox ($100; thegboxes.com). The way it works is simple yet effective. You wear the GBox training aid like a belt: You strap it around your stomach, with the boxes on either side of your torso. For a right-handed golfer, on the backswing you want the left box to point at the ball; on the follow through, the other box.
Turn back, turn through and finally you’ll have a powerful pivot for longer drives.
