The Swing Jacket golf training aid has been reintroduced on the market. Some might remember the product from a decade ago. Back then, the Swing Jacket was used by more than 50 PGA Tour players looking for an advantage. Peter Jacobsen, Tom Pernice Jr., Scott McCarron, Olin Browne, and Billy Andrade all won PGA Tour events shortly after making the Swing Jacket part of their practice regime. The reason: The Swing Jacket makes each swing so consistent it locks the correct motion into their muscle memory.
Fast forward to 2007 and the company goes up in smoke – literally. The company’s factory burned down, along with all the dyes, molds, and product. It was a complete loss. After a lot of heartache, planning, and retooling, the new Swing Jacket was officially launched at the Tour Edge Media Classic at January’s PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando.
“I believe we had just scratched the surface with Swing Jacket before the fire,” says Bill Walsh, president and co-founder of Swing Jacket. “The product can really serve as a player developmental tool for the golf industry because it makes learning the proper golf swing very simple. One of golf’s issues is that people walk away from the game because they find it just too difficult to learn. Swing Jacket addresses the issue head-on.” The intent of the Swing Jacket: To automatically train golfers to repeat the core fundamentals of a simple, repeatable, efficient swing. Hopefully, developing an effective swing is no longer such a daunting challenge.
The 1999 Canadian PGA Teacher of the Year Bob McArthur says that “Changing any motor skill, like the golf swing, is very difficult. With the Swing Jacket, golfers do not have to think about mechanics, they just have to swing and the Swing Jacket will keep them on the correct path.”
According to the company web site, the Swing Jacket will simplify your golf game in two important ways:
• Learning a great swing by guiding you through each swing — perfectly
• Keeping your swing on plane and connecting to the rotation of your torso
According to Walsh, the Swing Jacket is the only product that physically guides golfers through a connected, on-plane swing. Whether you use the Swing Jacket hitting whiffle balls in the back yard, taking practice swings in the living room or on the practice tee, each swing is automatically training your body to repeat that optimal swinging motion. By imposing a level of consistency on each swing, the Swing Jacket locks key swing fundamentals into muscle memory.
