Boomgolf.com.au Boomerang golf indoor putting system – REVIEW

Boomgolf.com.au Boomerang golf indoor putting system – REVIEW


Finally I hit GIR (Which is like winning a lottery ticket). I manage to make a 5 putt to score a 7 instead of the anticipated birdie or at least par or even for today a bogey or forget it I settle for a double bogey. Nope it has to be a triple bogey just because I do not have any sense of distance control with my putting swing. Not a swing to be honest. More some sort of trying to crack a egg. First you try hitting it too light because you think it will crack too much and you get the yellow on your face. Nothing happens and you opt to hit the egg too Continue reading

Scores of 4 September 2013

Played twice the front 9 in a row. First score was 56. Again my average score. There seems always to be at least two holes which are royally screwed up. Completely destroying my chance to play below 50. If I am not able to play below 50 for 9 holes I am not going to play a full 18 hole. This is to motivate myself because I want to play 18 holes. But I have to get below the 100 this season. Continue reading

Golf Putting too short almost all the time and if not it is too long.

Golf Putting too short almost all the time and if not it is too long.

It is if I am afraid that I putt too long and make it swing shorter/slower then i have to do and it will be always too short. Outside the 5 foot range i am talking. Within it is most of the time good. I must admit my putting is still work in progress. But when I putt, the ball rolls general straight now just too short. And when I say to myself don’t putt to short give it more swing it runs past the hole at least 3 feet or further into the bunker behind the green. Why oh why?

I am thinking that it might be important to have a putter with the right weight/feel to get properly connected with the subconscious calculation how much to swing or should i go for a metered approach with putting. Like some sort of table in your mind for the swing length versus distance. What fairway to travel on?

Front 9 Golf result end of August 2013 at Mlade Buky golf Club

Front 9 Golf result end of August 2013 at Mlade Buky golf Club 


I wanted to play more this year (2013) but my daily day to day business needed most of my time. I managed to be on the driving range in Mlade buky golf club several times and worked a lot on my swing. It is getting better, I am able to hit the LW reasonable well and constant. The same goes for the SW, PW and 9 iron. The problem starts to surface when I am using the 7 iron or higher. For now I am not hitting any fairway wood or driver reasonable and if i do it is the usual bananarama slice into the wild wild east.
But last week I was suddenly hitting everything much better and much more consistent. Coupled with a feeling of.. ahh this feels good. Wow…great sound of the ball and boom straight and far. Even the driver and the hybrids came to live. I looked in the other driving range boots if maybe people were looking at my superior ball striking that day. None of them showed any interest at all. Nobody asked for a signature or asking tips.  I thought I have arrived. I know it. They just do not know it. Finally I am ready for the EPGA (PGA is for later). I got excited and decided to give it a go on the front 9 holes. Continue reading

Swingyde Golf training aid from www.swingyde.com – Review -

Browsing the internet for some assistance in getting better at golf I stumbled upon the Swingyde golf training aid from www.swingyde.com . According to its selling slogan “On line every time!” it should make learning the proper golf swing a breeze. You start hitting the ball far and accurate because it teaches you to get the proper wrist cocking in the back and down swing.  The company is based in Australia. They have some reseller points in U.K. and the USA.
Their website is: www.swingyde.com
Their company details:
Golf Inventions Pty Ltd Trading as Swingyde
4 Liberan Court, West Lakes, South Australia 5021
Phone: +61 418 840002
Owner/Developer: Peter Ormsby – member PGA of Australia

You can order their product on their swingyde website or selecting the distributors. Alternatively ofcourse you can use amazon. Here is the link on amazon.co.uk. It is sold by The golf shop Online and fulfilled by amazon

Since I am desperate and thus a victim for all the latest and greatest golf training aids I ordered it on their website for about Euro 29.  The package arrived about 12 days later.

This is what you get according to their website:

and that is exactly what i got too.

The Swingyde is a yellow plastic kind of brace that should be mounted on your golf grip or slightly below to promote the proper wrist hinge. If you hinge correctly the top part should touch your arm. If you do not feel this touch you did not hinged correctly. It is that easy. Continue reading
