Ojee Golf Talon training aid review
Submitted by Andy Roberts on Thu, 15 Oct 2015

When Jack Nicklaus has something to say about the golf swing, you probably should stand up and take note.

Matt Hulbert and his father Paul did more than just that after reading what the record 18-time major champion had to say in his book 'Golf My Way.'

"I feel that hitting specific shots is 50% mental picture, 40% setup, and 10% swing," said Nicklaus.

"If you set up correctly, there's a good chance you'll hit a reasonable shot, even if you make a mediocre swing.

"If you set up to the ball poorly, you'll hit a lousy shot even if you make the greatest swing in the world."

As a result of these quotes, Matt and Paul founded Ojee Golf in 2014 and wasted little time launching a revolutionary new training aid called Talon - a device that provides real-time visual feedback on a player's stance and angles of address.

First Look: Ojee Golf Talon

The beauty of the Talon is that it removes any guess work from the swing and provides all the critical information you need to set up to the ball with the same posture each and every time.

So how does it work?

Quite simply, the Talon measures everything from the angle of your club face to the angle of your spine to help you perfect the most fundamental portions of your game.

The wireless back unit helps measure your spine angle, which we aimed for around 55 degrees, while the digital display unit - attached to the grip of the club - measures the shaft angle, which came out around 43 degrees.

The Talon will also cleverly calculate your shaft to spine angle, which came out at 97 degrees, as well as your rotation angle.

After using it for a good hour on the range, the Talon certainly does a great job at improving muscle memory as it begins to sync you into a better posture without you even knowing it. 

It's also a great tool if you're pushing or pulling shots because you will instantly see why when looking at your numbers. 

While working with the Talon alongside your local PGA pro would certainly be a great idea to get the most out of this training aid, the benefit of the device is that you can use it for self-teaching purposes wherever you may be.

Verdict

Your golf stance at your fingertips. The Talon training aid is one of the smartest and most effective self-teaching tools we have seen for quite some time. 

While not the cheapest investment at £149, let's not forget Jack tells us setup constitutes 40% of this beautiful, yet finicky game.
