Using The Orange Whip In Your Pre-Round Routine

You have seen it. I have seen it. Everybody has seen the Orange Whip on TV, in PGA Professionals bags and in stores. It is a multi-use golf training aid that is easy to use and very beneficial to your golf game. One way people are using the Whip is in their pre-round routine. Yes, you can swing the whip back and forth to get warmed up, but it also can do other things like get your legs and back loose. Jim Hackenberg, the founder and CEO of Orange Whip, takes us through an exercise tip that you can use with the Whip to help you get ready for your round or keep you tuned up in the off season.

Some people choose to live their life with 5-6 months of winter. How do you get better at golf when there is snow on the ground? You can go to your indoor driving range or you can simply have the Orange Whip handy. The first exercise you can do in the off season or before a round is truck twists. By keeping your feet square, your arms and the whip out in front of you and staying in an athletic position, all you have to do is use the Orange Whip to go back and forth. Making sure your feet are pivoting in your backswing motion, this exercise will help your muscles stay fit and your mechanics on point.

Check out the video above to learn just how the Orange Whip can help you in your everyday pursuit of a great golf swing. If you liked this video, you can check out this SWING TIP from Jim Hackenberg using the Orange Whip!

Get Ready To Play With The Orange Whip Training Aid

Now that the golf season is fully upon us, there will be training aids popping up out of nowhere claiming it can help you in every fashion of your golf game! When you think of training aids, most of them are designed specifically for the golf swing or the putting stroke. Many times we overlook the importance of warming up! How many of us get to the range or the golf course and just “show and go?” I know I do and many golfers do the same. Your warm up before the round could be more important than your actual golf swing. Don’t get me wrong, more people need help with their swing than their warm up game, but if you’re not warmed up before you play your swing probably won’t be very good. This is where the Orange Whip Trainer comes into play!

The Orange Whip Trainer was developed by Jim Hackenberg, The Orange Whip CEO, in his garage. A few years back Jim was doing private golf lessons for the average golfer! It was a need for his students to learn how to have an athletic golf swing motion!  Many times we get very tense and tight when we swing the golf club causing us to chop down on the golf ball! The Orange Whip allows you to relax and develop a nice rhythm! From his lessons to the big time, it took about 2 years for the trainer to hit it big in the golf industry. From year one to year two he was up 46,000 units! Many of those units were purchased by some players on the PGA, Champions and LPGA Tours! Now the Orange Whip is around the world and is expected to make even more movement in the golfing world!

You are able to use it for drills! The Orange Whip Trainer also has the Orange Peel which is a slanted platform that allows you to work on your swing in different lie situations!

Review: The Putting Arc Trainer can Improve Your Putting Stroke

Review: The Putting Arc Trainer can Improve Your Putting Stroke

Golf Life is focused on helping golfers improve their golf game. We got the chance to try out a putting tool training aid that will help improve the path of your putting stroke.

The Putting Arc is a training aid that all golfers should have. It works because it’s based upon natural body movement which can be quickly learned and repeated. Results can be seen in several days. The clubhead travels in a perfect circle (radius R) and the projection of this circle on the ground is an ellipse in the shape of the Putting Arc.

The putter is always ‘on plane’ (the sweet-spot/spinal pivot plane). The intersection of this plane with the ground is a straight line, the ball/target line. The club face is always square to the above plane. It is only square to the ball target line at the center line of the Putting Arc. You are learning an inside-to-square-to-inside putting stroke.

There are 3 different styles of the Putting Arc that you can purchase. They have the MS-3D, the MS-3D Yellow and the Travel Size.

When you practice with the Putting Arc, you work on three things, the on-plane putting stroke, correct initial alignment, and correct clubface angle. All are equally important. When the Putting Arc is correctly aligned with your target, the center line is perfectly square to the initial starting direction and it provides an excellent visual confirmation that your alignment is correct. This is as important as the other two elements. The other lines on top tell you if you have correctly maintained the clubface angle by not manipulating the clubface either closed or open during the stroke, while the arc tells you if you are swinging the putter on-plane. This is the only putting training aid on the market which has the capability to correctly teach these three putting components at the same time, and that is one reason it has been used by 17 of the 24 Presidents Cup contestants and over 500 touring pros.
