CARLSBAD, CA - SKLZ, the industry leader in sports training products and equipment, today announced it has introduced the new Gold FlexTM training aid as part of the company's line of golf training aids.
The Gold Flex warm-up and tempo training aid is designed to improve your swing while providing a core muscle workout. With a large, round head and flexible extra-long shaft, the Gold Flex encourages a flatter swing plane and forces the downswing to be initiated by the lower body, both of which fight slices. The weight and flex of the Gold Flex combine to improve lag and fight casting. It also acts as a fitness tool to strengthen and condition golf-specific muscles, increase flexibility and improve coordination.
"Golfers have major issues with flexibility, swing plane, and tempo. The Gold Flex addresses all of them," noted Greg Shoman, vice president of marketing, SKLZ. "It's the ideal warm-up and practice tool, and it can be carried in the bag during the round, making it perfect for taking a few swings before stepping into that first tee box."
The Gold Flex measures 51" in length and can be used by golfers of all skill levels. It is legal to carry the Gold Flex in your golf bag because it does not count as a golf club and does not affect the fourteen-club rule. The suggested retail price is $69.99.
