GForce Golf Training Aid Review

Last update -

Welcome, fellow Golfer Geeks, to our GForce golf review. 

I’m an avid golfer, a 9.2 6.7 handicap on my way to a 2 (been a 5.6) and frequent tester of golf clubs and equipment since 2015.

I’ve had my GForce 7-iron for about a month. I hit it at every range session and before every round. I also swing it a few dozen times a day at home.  

Summary: The GForce 7-iron swing trainer does exactly what it advertises: Helps you create lag, improve your takeaway, backswing, transition, swing plane, swing sequence, and timing…and the inventor (Stuart Small – 20-year PGA Coach) provides tons of instruction on using his swing trainers and on the golf swing, in general. 

And…Its the only USGA approved hittable swing trainer in golf which is legal for practice and play and its the same weight as your regular club so swing learnings and timing is unaffected, unlike other heavier swing trainers.

In this review of the GForce Golf 7-iron swing trainer, I discuss my experience with the club, and unique features and benefits.

So, what about the GForce Golf promise – Transform your swing in 30 days or your money back 

Yeah, the whole “transformation” thing depends on where your swing is/was to start. The GForce is great at exposing swing flaws. 

  • Snapping the club inside on your takeaway (one of my personal favorites), which…
  • Leads to being off plane in your backswing
  • Jerking the club down in transition instead of gradually building speed
  • etc.

Do I think your swing can and will improve in 30 days if you follow Stuart’s instructions and use the GForce as recommended? Yes…I do. 

Stuart is a legit PGA coach and a student of the golf swing. He goes through great pains to teach us how to swing the club properly. In fact, he goes through everything related to the golf swing for free right there on his YouTube channel.

So, how does the GForce feel and look?

The GForce 7-iron is one of the better-looking swing training clubs on the market. It looks and feels premium, and it conforms to USGA standards.

So, its the weight of a standard 7-iron – which GForce says makes it easier to transition from the training club to your irons.   

The grip is midsize textured rubber. The shaft is thin and flexible. 

As advertised, the weight feels pretty much like one of my irons. Also, you won’t get much flex in the shaft or lag in the clubhead if you take the club away smoothly. You will feel the clubhead load at wherever you end your backswing – be it a half, three-quarter, or full swing.

The degree of flex and lag you feel depends on how quick and/or sudden your movements are with the club. 

(This is part of the secret of the GForce – you have to tame those sudden or mistimed movements (and other swing flaws) to make decent contact)  

Getting started with your GForce

Just grab it and waggle it a bit, then take a few slow partial swings to get used to how it flexes, loads, and unloads. You can do this in your house without a ball – no problem.

When you’re ready to really get started:

1) Go here –> GForce 7-iron training

  • Stuart covers the whole golf swing in this series of YouTube videos, teaching you how to use the unique features of the GForce trainer to improve faster. (He’s made metric tons of golf instruction videos on the GForce channel. Do yourself a favor and dig in.)

2) Perform the drills as instructed. (I do some of them right in my office)

3) Contact Stuart if you have any questions or issues. He personally answers all emails. 

Sticking with the training and putting in the work is key – as with everything in life. Don’t forget about it and let it gather dust. Put it to work and get your rewards. 

How do you use the GForce training aid?

Swing it as often as you can at home. Make sure you follow Stuart’s training so you get the most out of it. (I assume you’ve gone through the “Getting Started” series at least and gotten any help you needed from Stuart)

At the driving range…

Stuart has us start with easy half swings – about waist high to waist high with hands – going back and forth so we groove the low spot of our swing, develop the proper rhythm,  and learn where the sweet spot will be so we can put it on a path with the golf ball.

Once you’ve grooved this move, and Only once you’ve grooved this move, you can start to make a fuller swing and add speed. You’ll work your way up to full swings.

Have any issues with contact, slicing, or hooking – go back to slow waist high to waist high swings to continue grooving impact. 

As with the Lag Shot, I made solid contact from the start. But, I pushed and sliced a few on occasion. 

Here’s how I’ve been using the GForce: 

1) At home every day

I work from home and get up about once an hour to stretch out. I grab my GForce and head outside for a little sunlight and swing it about 10-20 times. I start with a few half swings to get a good rhythm and make sure my sequence and balance are good.

Then I work up to full swings, but never really go all out. I want the sequence, plane, path, and rhythm to be good.  

2) Before all practice sessions (and before rounds) at the driving range.

I start every practice session by hitting 10-15 balls with the GForce. Fewer if I start hitting it good right away and feel I’m in good sequence and rhythm.

I start with half swings and make sure the ball is going straight or with a tight draw before I switch to my clubs.

3) No chance to get to the range before my round? 

Same routine I follow at home every day. Get in a good golf stance and start with slow half swings to build rhythm, sequence, and timing. I build up to full swings – making sure to keep my fundamentals in check. 

Verdict: Does the GForce Work? 

Yep, the GForce 7-iron works as advertised. And, the video training from Stuart is immensely helpful. 

It’s the original hittable lag and tempo trainer and the NXT-GEN model just released in February of 2022 is nice upgrade. 

Thank you for checking out the Golfer Geeks’ GForce Golf review. Please let us know if you have any questions and how it worked for you.
