How the Impact Snap Training Aid Improves Your Golf Swing

Each year, golfers are inundated with gadgets and gizmos
designed to take their game to the next level.
But how do you know what's good?
Well, in terms of golf training aids, look for three things.
One, the product should be easy to use.
Two, it should do one thing well.
And three, ideally, it can be used
in a live practice session.
In this program, we're going to review the best
training aids in golf.
Some are brand new, some have been in the market
for quite awhile.
But in every case, if used correctly, they'll help
to improve your technique, and help you enjoy the game more.
The Impact Snap Release Trainer, is designed to help players
feel the proper hand position throughout the swing.
In addition, this year is this plastic club head attachment,
which I strongly recommend.
As you swing through to the back swing, down through impact,
and to the full follow-through, it allows you to see
club face angle.
Let me show you how this works.
If you make a proper swing, you should hear
the snap two times.
You should hear a snap halfway back in your backswing,
and then at, or through, impact.
[snap] See, that tells you
that your wrists are properly cocked at the backswing.
Now when you swing down and through the ball,
you're gonna hear the second snap.
So you should've heard that snap past impact.
So that's a good swing.
You've held your angle, you've held your angle,
you've held your angle, until impact.
The Impact Snap gear also will give you feedback
on some swing faults.
For example, if you swing back too fast, you may not
hear any snap at all, and that's not a good thing.
Now, I'm gonna take it back half-way.
I'm good here, but if I flip my hands going down through
impact, I'm actually gonna feel the snap before impact.
And that's no good either.
So, again, it shows you, and you hear, positives and it also
gives you feedback on when your hands aren't
doing the right thing.
Now, there's another gizmo going on,
and this is the yellow ball.
So, the yellow ball really gives you some feedback
on where you should be at address and at impact.
So when you set up at address,
the yellow ball will rest below your trail,
or in my case, my right forearm.
And if I'm making a good body turn and swinging through
properly, at impact, I'm actually gonna feel the yellow ball
striking up against my trail forearm.
In this view, at address, the ball is below my
trail forearm, and if I swing through to impact,
and I'm in a good position at impact and I've got my body
moving correctly, and my hands are in good positions,
I will feel the yellow ball up against the trail forearm.
So the Impact Snap Release Trainer is a great product
for training your hands so you know exactly
where they should be throughout the swing.
