It has been another fantastic week for the makers of golf strength and fitness machine The Extra 20 Yards® , with accolades and support coming from some of the most well known and respected sources in golf.
The week began with Golf Business Development magazine (GBD) naming The Extra 20 Yards® as one of its most impressive new technologies of 2011 and ended with the PGA National Academy at the Belfry installing The Extra 20 Yards® in it’s fitting centre. And – just for good measure – sandwiched in between was a request from a past Ryder Cup captain to have a machine installed in his home.
Based on a weighted pulley system that is set to replicate the golf swing, The Extra 20 Yards® is a piece of golf fitness equipment that has been heralded as a simple, effective way to increase strength in the correct muscles for golf, improve club head speed and help prevent golfing injuries.
The Extra 20 Yards® has quickly established a reputation as a great tool that helps coaches and professionals to add value to their lessons and helps to convey the intricacies of the golf swing to their pupils. These benefits are what has encouraged the likes of the Belfry to request an The Extra 20 Yards® for its training facility.
Graeme Alexander, of The Extra 20 Yards® commented, “We have had a huge amount of positive feedback from professionals and coaches who have installed the machine at their venues. Requests for The Extra 20 Yards® from these sources has increased dramatically as more professionals want to offer the best facilities that they can.”
The Extra 20 Yards® has now been installed at many driving ranges and clubs including the Belfry, and Crown Golf academies. It has also been installed in the training studios of coaches to Tour players and even in the home of 2009 Women’s Open Champion Catriona Matthew.
The SRP is £219, but PGA Professionals can get a 20% discount so the price is around £175 per unit. This product offers something completely different and has already proven its value at the sites using it.
