ProStriders – A Revolutionary New Kind of Golf Enhancement Product

By: Dr. Barry Lotz

As Director of the PGTAA and a golf writer who is exposed daily to new golf products, it’s not often that I have the opportunity to introduce to the golfing public a truly unique golf product, one that is in a category all by itself and is based literally, on a solid foundation.

The product is called Prostriders. Prostriders are “Custom Body Balancers” orthotics that are designed specifically for golf. Originally they were only available to golf professionals, but are accessible to amateur golfers for the very first time.

ProStriders can dramatically improve balance, tempo and timing and also increase your distance by up to 20 yards.

In addition to this, ProStriders can provide some very important health benefits. By improving your balance, they can relieve and prevent foot, knee and back pain, both on and off the golf course. That’s is important because when you feel better, you play better. I can tell you this from personal experience and I know of no other golf product that works equally well both on and off the golf course.

Recently I spoke with the developer of ProStriders, Dr. Lon Kolker. He’s a former podiatrist (foot doctor) and an avid golfer. Here’s what I learned :

Your feet are the foundation of your golf swing. Perfect balance, which cannot be taught, is absolutely essential to your golf swing, in terms of distance, accuracy and consistency.

Unfortunately Dr. Kolker has rarely, if ever, seen the “perfect foot”…one that has the ” Perfect Balance Position”. That is where the bones of your feet are perfectly aligned with each other as well as with the bones of your knees, hips and spine. It is the position of minimum stress and maximum efficiency from which you get the most accuracy, consistency and power from your golf swing.

Deviations from the “Perfect Balance Position”, like flat feet or high arches, can be severe and in such cases, very obvious. Most often however, these deviations are so subtle you may be unaware that they exist at all. As you get older, they tend to become more pronounced.

Talk about a handicap! Remember, it doesn’t take much to “mess up” a golf swing. Even a minor deviation will cause an abnormal weight distribution at the address position and throughout the entire swing. If your feet tend to be pronated or “flat” even if you can’t see it, your weight will be abnormally shifted inwardly. If your feet are supinated or “high arched”, your weight will be abnormally shifted outwardly. This causes a chain reaction. The bones of the foot, ankle and leg are out of alignment, which causes joints to “unlock” and become unstable. Your muscles now have to work harder to compensate, which diffuses power and coordination. Because of this, it is much more difficult to repeat the precise movements necessary for a consistent and powerful swing.

So the trick is to somehow find a way to restore and maintain your own “Perfect Balance Position”. This will allow you to achieve and duplicate your most perfect natural golf swing. You can’t have one without the other.

Due to his experience in both podiatry and golf, Dr Kolker found himself in a unique position to solve these problems. ProStriders, we believe, could and possible should become standard equipment for every golfer, not just for the professionals.

The ease-of-use to obtain a set is unbelievably simple. Through a special clinically proven and golf course- tested, non-prescription process, ProStriders are custom-fitted to your individual requirements and specifications in the comfort of your own home. As a result, ProStriders can restore and maintain your individual “Perfect Balance Position” throughout the golf swing. That allows you to produce maximum clubhead speed at impact, while you are able to repeat your most perfect natural golf swing, over and over again.

I have personally been using ProStriders for almost two months and I can tell you, with absolute confidence, that they are everything that the manufacturers claim them to be. I’ve experienced a measurable improvement in both my accuracy and my distance, as well as a significant reduction of general aches and pains in my feet and legs, both on and off the golf course.

Without sounding as a paid advertisement for the company, I can assure you that with the benefits ProStriders can deliver are well worth the investment. With their 100% unconditional money-back guarantee, you have everything to gain and nothing to lose.

So in conclusion; if your feet ache, your legs get tired, you are not rotating smoothly and usually feel off balance, it would be a good idea to visit Dr. Kolker’s web site at and look around or, call Prostride at 858.495.9469 or email.

PING

nunchuck

Last year PING had the best-selling driver in the G30 model. This year, their new PING G has attracted a new set of devotees to the PING clan.
What the G driver offers is what every golfer desires – faster club head and ball speed. Using proprietary Turbulator Technology, VorTec and face/crown transition to combine for more efficient air flow, there is definitely a noticeable difference over the G30 version – all good.
The T9S Titanium face is thinner and hotter for maximum distance and deflection. The club’s adjustability with its 5-lobe hosel sleeve, allows ±1 degree of loft adjustment.
Another improvement is the DragonFly Technology –

Having problems with your swing? – Fix your slice! by Johnny Miller

I recently was examining swing sequences of some of the greatest players in history. Knowing that some of these players favored a draw as their standard shot while others preferred a fade, I sought to identify swing features within each group that would explain their respective ball-flight tendencies. Something profound emerged that I think will benefit all golfers, especially those cursed with a wicked slice.

What I found was this: Virtually every accomplished fader of the ball–from Jack Nicklaus to Tiger Woods–displayed a straight left arm at the top of the backswing. Conversely, those who preferred a draw–players like Arnold Palmer and Bobby Jones–maintained a slight bend at the elbow.

This discovery is great news for most slicers, as they tend to do by accident what intentional faders do on purpose. In this article I’ll explain why the dynamic works, and how a simple swing change will make a powerful draw your standard shot.
