Hey Andy I'm literally brand new to golf. Just ordered my clubs and a GEM. You think this will help me being a complete newb?

Da great stoney. says:

Great stuff, tks👍

Andrew Drummond says:

Toe up on follow through is very 80's/Fred Couples. When you show the holding off through impact at 4.16 I think you should actually compare to many of the great swings of the past – I am think Sandy Lyle for one – who had huge power but had that right wrist in the held off position you show. I have the GEM and think that it is a fantastic tool but I am not using it in the toe up/GEM down manner they suggest (toe up on backswing is also old school/Leadbetter/Faldo, matching spine angle is more the current/Hogan view), but in a more rotational style as suggested by another YT channel, and find the weight helps feel how I should be using left and right sidebend in conjunction with the transition to keep the club slotted and the face squarer for longer through impact. Remember, as a teaching pro you have an ingrained good transition/rotation that most amateurs struggle with. It's a must buy tool imho, but not to use in the manner they suggest.

Dylan James Golf says:

For someone who was skeptical and bought it anyway. OMG. I can feel it’s so freakin easy. This is monumental. No more lessons needed. That’s why it’s so expensive.

Beached Walrus says:

I bought one as it was what my coach was teaching me to do but i didn't quite get it from verbal descriptions. This moves the club exactly how he wanted me to move it. Haven't been able to hit any balls yet (Been swinging it a bit in the past week) as i have a bad ankle injury from soccer but will be able to go to the range in the next few weeks. Also it has been a great tool for me to work my ankle during rehab.

Client Building says:

Too expensive to try and then put one more gadget on a shelve. Take lessons.

CornishMaid says:

Hi Andy, I know I’ve messaged you before about getting one of these for Xmas, however, I’ve now had a chance to use it in my last two range sessions, and I have to say it’s the best training aid I’ve ever tried. It gets the club in a perfect position on the back swing, but more importantly for me, it’s got me releasing the club and it’s incredibly easy to use. Thank you so much for bringing this to my attention, it’s amazing. Happy new year Andy to you and your family. Melissa

Mark Shepherd says:

Wouldn't mind trying it but it's ridiculously expensive AUD$250.00

Enda O'Shea says:

For €20 i'd give it a go but no chance at €120

John Harris says:

Put the clamp on the bottom of the grip not the shaft.

John Harris says:

Hands down one of the best training aids that actually work and gives results and change. Perserver with the Gem its worth it. I put the hanger training aid on the same club as the Gem and do practice swings then remove the Gem weighted rod and hit balls all incorporated with the Mach3 speed out in front training.

CornishMaid says:

Just had this as a present on Xmas day, it feels quality, I’m so looking forward to trying it when the range is open in a couple of days. Thanks for sharing this, as I’d never knew it existed before your video

ORyan87 says:

I will say it is expensive but, if you are a true golfer trying to improve your game for years to come – $120 is nothing compared to insanely high tee fees only to score horribly;
I've bought a few aids, and I will say this one is effective and is here to stay.

Charles Simons says:

another great video Andy…to be fair

P C says:

Is this legal for actual golf shots on the course?

steve perry says:

andy, i have been working with the gem a bit and must say the results are quite remarkable, genius device. i would say one would have to try it to believe how well it works.

Norman says:

Remember when you were at “ The Island “ golf course in Dublin .. Anyway , fantastic piece of kit ..Use it everyday and I encourage everyone I speak to to get one and do the same

Victor Wong says:

Thanks, Andy.
1.5 year golfer that is struggling for a proper swing. I just want to have a repeatable proper swing, but the YouTube lessons just seem to give you tips to make your bad swing better.
I don't have any swing aids other than a stick, but I think this might help with the basic fundamentals.
I wasn't a regular viewer, but I noticed that you seemed like a no BS guy and I trust your enthusiasm. I guess I'll see when this thing gets to the US from Scotland, but I have hope.
Also, there is a 10 percent discount code on the other reviewers sites. Nice to know that Andy isn't a shill, not that I feel Matt, Pete, and Rick are.

paramoose says:

I am a 30+++ handicap golfer that has been trying to rekindle a terrible golf game after over a decade of letting the clubs gather dust. Taken several lessons, watched hours of videos and purchased a few training aids after careful scrutiny. The fastest positive effect on my swing has come from the GEM!! I try to spend a few minutes a day doing practice swings trying to ingrain the muscle memory and I can feel my swing smoothing out. Best of all it is taking my mind out of the swing as I am getting the proper mechanics ingrained! Feeling the "wobble" anytime my technique isn't spot on is invaluable and immediately makes me try to figure out what caused it. That way you do not just keep practicing bad mechanics!

joseph heycock says:

One question should you feel a wobble as you release please.

SparkyGazz says:

Easily worth the money
…buy one with a mate and share it.
This product is far and away the best training aid I have tried….and there's been a few, including the very whippy ones. The results were instant and teach you to swing the "old fashioned way" not stack and tilt or whatever crap they teach now. Stops you holding the face off to "create" lag. 90 perfect shots in a row at the range …..can't wait to get back on the course. I used to swing this way… did I ever get sucked into lag "creation"????? My suggestion to teaching pros is to teach this method to EVERY student.

Neil Amalfitano says:

How do I get 10 percent off? It says 140 bucks only

Barracatcher says:

Had one of these as soon as Steve Johnston had it in his channel. Even got a great discount too. Great training tool.

Joe Perez says:

I picked one of those up, sent to me in the USA, when I saw it demonstrated on a competitor's YouTube channel. I love it. What is odd is that the GEM has the club head toe-up at halfway back, and through, while a lot of recent teaching says to match the leading edge of the club head with your spine.

Mark Campbell says:

Hi Andy, just seen this.

I bought the Gem a while ago on the basis of Steve Johnston’s video. I didn’t really get it and it also didn’t seem to fit with what my coach was teaching me, so it stayed in the drawer.

Then a couple of months ago, I took it on the range for no better reason than I thought it might help with my takeaway.

The results were ridiculous and like you, it blew my mind. I instantly gained 10 yards with my 6 iron.

I took it to my coach to try to get an understanding of why it had such an impact and he dismissed it as a device for over the top slicers. As you’ve pointed out the balance aspect means it works both ways.

So I’ve been reflecting on this myself and have landed on this conclusion: my coach, along with the majority of PGA professional teachers in my experience believes in lag, more specifically, that the student should try to hold on to lag or create a lag position usually with radial deviation which in turn will induce better rotation.

Trouble is, I believe the Gem teaches a feel which is the opposite of holding on to lag as you have concluded. The Gem teaches the correct release of trail wrist extension, and that that release starts earlier in the DS than we are commonly taught. Jack Nicklaus said that ‘you can’t release too early’ [assuming other fundamentals are in place] and the simple fact is, the Gem not only illustrates this feeling but it turns a lot of modern coaching on its head.

And the strange thing is, I’ve found that the feeling of allowing myself to release trail hand wrist extension as early as I like frees up the whole swing. And I get more lag! By not trying to hold lag I actually get lag because I get a better sensation of where that point should be.

I think this is because one’s brain does the addition for you. It knows where you want the low point to be, so it doesn’t apply the release until the optimal point. By not trying to hang on to extension to that point and just letting it happen, it happens.

I’ve now got to find a coach that gets this…haha

Stephen Poole says:

There is a thread on the Glfwrx forum. Some guys have their DIY versions if anyone wants to have a look

huw clark says:

Andy, I bought my Gem earlier this year. When you say “mind blowing” you couldn’t be more true. It’s an amazing aid, I’m so glad you’re going to do more videos with Gem.
Thanks for all your hints and tips.
