As golf facilities slowly begin to reopen around the globe during these bizarre times of COVID-19, millions will get out and begin the road back to playing their best golf. Earlier this spring the fine folks at Total Golf Trainer sent over their new TGT 3.O kit for us to test out. The kit is a flexible comprehensive set of tools that allow you to vary the degree of difficulty all while providing instant and safe feedback.
Trusted by top instructors including Jim McLean, Debbie Doniger, Cameron McCormick and ‘Me and My Golf’s’ Piers Ward and Andy Proudman – the TGT 3.0 is highly regarded in the industry for it’s game changing features and flexible rod versatility.
The TGT ARM device was where I focused my practice sessions, identifying a top of the backswing issue, the transition and just tightening up my impact position (with the mid-irons) as things to improve.
At address the TGT arm device isn’t in contact with the back of trail hand. . .
At the top, the TGT ARM acts as a reminder of the proper position, but unlike many training aids you can practice and even play on the course to ingrain mechanics. Note the flat left wrist and shaft plane.
Even with a full driver swing, notice the trail hand position and the influence TGT Arm has on a proper and powerful position at impact.
TGT HIP is a simple device that gives instant visual feedback – improving the downswing sequence, including proper hip rotation.
TGT V2 features flexible versatility that can be shaped into many of the leading training products being marketed and sold today.
- Incorrect Wrist Set
- Extreme Open Or Closed Club Face
- Sucking The Club Inside On The Takeaway
- Too Laid Off Or Across The Line At Top Of The Backswing

A brochure that illustrates the proper drills with each device is included in each 3.0 Kit. Total Golf Trainer Starter/Junior kits and individual TGT ARM, HIP and V2 are sold separately.
SUMMARY – Working on your game gets to be more enjoyable as it leads to crisper impact and better results. I’ve actually started taking video of my sessions since working with TGT a few weeks back just to see the evidence of incremental change. It’s impressive to see how quickly you can improve by visually being able to identify the fault and fix. Total Golf Trainer 3.0 is the ideal tool box to fix or just fine tune your game.
