The Swing Extender is one of the most effective full swing golf training aids in the world. It is simple and easy to use, putting the golfer into the perfect position at the top of their backswing.
The Swing Extender fastens around your bicep on the trail arm (right arm for a right-handed golfer) just above the elbow, putting the golfer in a 90-degree “power-angle” at the top of the backswing. This position creates a wide arc promoting greater length and accuracy. This 90 degree “power-angle” prevents the golfer's lead arm (left arm for a right-handed golfer) from breaking down or collapsing at the top of the backswing, one of the leading, contributing factors to reduced distance.
The Swing Extender is designed for golfers of every level, from beginner, all the way up to touring professional. It has been used by some of golf's biggest names, including six-time major champion Phil Mickelson and Golf Digest Top 5 instructor, Mike Bender.
How to Use
Prepare Swing Extender: Remove your Swing Extender from the box and loosen the velcro enough to create a loop for step 2.
Positioning: Put your trail arm (right arm for a right handed golfer) through the loop created by the velcro strap with the right angle positioned near the inner elbow joint.
Secure: The Swing Extender mold should sit on the lower extremity of the bicep. Once positioned correctly, fasten the velcro strap to the desired tension. The closer you position the right angle of the Swing Extender to the elbow the more restrictive your backswing will be.
Elevate Your Game: Start putting yourself in the ‘Power Position’ every time!
About Tommy Brannen (PGA Master Professional, Augusta Country Club)
Tommy Brannen is a PGA Master Professional who is highly respected throughout the PGA of America. He has served as the Director of Golf at Augusta Country Club for over 20 years. In the prior 18 years at Augusta Country Club, he served in the same capacity at another of Georgia’s most elite clubs, the Atlanta Athletic Club.
Tommy and his wife Melanie had sourced, warehoused, and distributed the Swing Extender out of the stockroom at Augusta Country Club since its mid-1990’s inception. Tommy created the Swing Extender out of frustration, “I wanted so desperately to find a way for my students to actually experience what the proper positioning of their arms should feel like, and thereby reap the positive effects of this action. I’ve had tremendous responses and results from golfers who use the Swing Extender”. The simplest ideas are often the best. Orders have continued to ship all around the world both through direct online purchases and numerous distribution channels through relationships Tommy cultivated over the years.
Tommy has always been an innovator and is a valuable addition to FLYT Golf. He resides in Augusta Georgia where he still teaches. He and Melanie have two sons Chandler and Barrett.
