Fairways and Greens – Gift Guide
If you’re looking for the perfect golf gift idea, then take a look at My Personal Golf Trainer for the Nintendo Wii, featured in Fairways + Greens magazine’s holiday gift guide. With this indoor golf training device, David Leadbetter, the world’s No. 1 golf instructor, provides personalized feedback on your golfer’s swing.
Here’s what Fairways + Greens says about the Wii golf trainer:
Consisting of videos hosted by Lead himself, a series of drills, an interactive “range” that breaks every swing down into each of seven “links” — in 3D, no less — and even a course that puts what you’ve learned and seen into action in 9 or 18-hole doses, it’s a pretty complete teaching aid, even it there is a bit of a techno learning curve. Easy-to-understand graphics track your progress and show where you’re spot-on and where you could use work.
Leadbetter uses his 7 Steps to a Better Golf Swing to help your golfer improve in the off-season. The Wii Balance Board and MotionPlus controller allow My Personal Golf Trainer to analyze grip, posture, alignment, ball position, coil, swing shape and tempo. To date, a few indoor golf training devices have been available, but their feedback is limited to just the impact portion of the swing.
Professional golf training lessons cost thousands of dollars, so at only $99, My Personal Golf Trainer is a steal. With My Personal Golf Trainer, Fairways + Greens says, “Winter will pass a lot quicker — with some grooved moves to show for it.”
Golf International Magazine Nov / Dec 10
“You’re getting swing analysis comparable to a £2,000 high-speed, video capture system, but with 360-degree viewing and expert interpretation thrown in”
“Will be appreciated by golfers who are truly dedicated to improving their golf swing”
Imagine Golf Club Review
“I was dubious but having seen this in action I can say that this is real golf training from a world class coach and the best part of all is that it’s available 24/7 in the comfort of my living room. This will definitely improve your swing and to be honest is the ideal Christmas present for any budding golfer.”
“This is a great idea, brilliantly executed and definitely the future of golf tuition.”
Kiel Christianson – World Golf
The extensive feedback that the system provides is certainly better than no practice at all for people in my situation. At the PGA Equipment Show and other events, people have been amazed at how the trainer picks up on exactly their predominant ball flight.
According to David Leadbetter:
“Ideally, you’ll be going out and hitting a lot of balls because golf is about feel and you lose that feel unless you’re actually doing something constructively. Unfortunately, today people have a lack of time to go and practice. With “My Personal Golf Trainer,” in just a few minutes you are able to spend some quality time practicing and really making each swing, and knowing you are doing it correctly. A few minutes at home is a great way of maintaining that feel and allowing yourself to swing consistently. Because it’s all about consistency, and if you’re not playing a lot or not practicing a lot, you lose that consistency.”
Truer words were never spoken. And short of moving to a warmer climate or risking penury, “My Personal Golf Trainer” is the best option for many golfers seeking some quality practice during the winter months.
“The feedback and tips are terrific.”
“Time to tell your Wii-playing munchkins at home to step aside. Daddy’s got a brand new toy.”
Capital Golf Weekly, Expert Review
Capital Golf Weekly expert review of My Personal Golf Trainer for Nintendo Wii, with explanation from David Leadbetter at the PGA Golf show.
“This is as close to personal instruction as you can get.”
“There is value for the Beginner and value for the experienced player too.”
“This sees things that you don’t see on a $40,000 golf simulator, for a tiny fraction of the price.”
“Between the 3D real time analysis for the swing, the recommended fixes for your faults and the precise details of the drills this thing is a steal at $100.”
“At 251 yards this is about as far as I can hit it at my advanced stage, so this thing is remarkably accurate.”
A very impressive use of the Wii technologyMy Personal Golf Trainer really comes into its own as the ability to see the path and plane of your swing on screen, pause and view it from any angle in 3D and compare to the ideal swing is excellent. From this area David Leadbetter will recommend some drills for you to do using video clips and then you can try again after you have worked on them and track your progress over time with the Skill Tracker. One area that is also very useful is the balance and weight transference feedback you get using the balance board is also very good.
A bargainOn one hand it is costly but compared to a live lesson with Leadbetter it is a bargain and gives you access to all the analysis tools and drills that were previously only available to top professionals. If you are a beginner or an aspiring mid to low handicapper then we think you will benefit from using My Personal Golf Trainer . The software will help you to improve your posture, weight transference and swing positions as well as helping you to understand how this affects your angle of attack and shot shape.
Much better than an instructional video or a book
Yorkshire Golfer (Chris Ashton PGA Professional)
“My Conclusion to say that this is a very impressive tool and will be a definite help to your game.”
“Only cost you $99 which is an absolute steal and a must have for any golfing nut.”
