NCG SUMMARY

I really like this training aid. It ticks a lot of boxes for correcting the common faults that I see day to day teaching amateur golfers.

This is perfect for players who need some help with their tempo, sequencing, release and fixing shots that go too far right. It’s even legal for tournament play if it helps your game.

PROS

  • Immediate feedback from the strike and ball flight tells you if you have made the right swing or not
  • Addresses many swing faults
  • Available in different clubs to help will all areas of the game
  • Great demonstration videos on YouTube

CONS

  • Too much use may result in pulls and hooks with normal clubs

First Impressions

At first glance, you wouldn’t be far off from thinking that the GForce Nxt-Gen 7 iron is a club used in one of those trick-shot shows you often see at shows or corporate events. The super thin whippy shaft bends from even the smallest movement of the head, and when just holding it, you wonder if the shaft can withstand the pressures and forces created in the swing.

NCG Review

As a coach, I love training aids. Anything that can be used to help a golfer achieve the desired feel or help develop their swing with less thought is brilliant. It’s even better if you can actually hit a ball whilst using it, and to go one step further, take it on the course and use it.

The GForce Nxt-Gen 7 iron is a regular iron head with a super thin and whippy shaft with a regular-sized grip on it. The idea is you hit shots with it and if you are swinging incorrectly, the ball goes out to the right, or you miss hit it. The ball will fly high and straight when you get your sequencing correct.

What I first noticed when hitting full shots with the 7 iron was how drastically the club bends in my takeaway – this would suggest I have a first move that is too aggressive.

The result of the extreme bend is that when I get down to impact, the club head hasn’t caught up to where it needs to be, so is wide open and sends the ball way off line. Once I made my first move smoother the ball flight straightened out and I was able to hit the ball fairly high and straight.

I gave this club to an 18-handicap player in a lesson, and initially, the shots were incredibly erratic to start. They were a natural slicer of the ball, and the Nxt-Gen 7 iron really exposed the player’s release issues. Once this issue was outlined and they performed a few half shots to get a feel for what should happen at impact, we improved their sequencing and fixed the ball flight.

The GForce sand wedge is also brilliant for helping fix golfers’ short games. The same theory applies in that a swing that’s too jerky or out of sequence will produce poor shots.

This is the club that was seen in Rory McIlroy’s bag at the US Open at Torrey Pines. Legendary coach Pete Cowen and his coaches are known to be using this training aid.

What I really love about these clubs is the ability to take them out and use them on the course like any other club in your bag. Being able to get out into the competitive environment and be forced to use the correct technique on shots by the GForce Nxt-Gen will speed up any golfers learning process.

I was so impressed with these clubs that I have made them a permanent fixture in my teaching bay!

Callaway Epic Max driver review

Jack is a PGA Golf Professional who specialises in coaching, teaching golf to beginners and top-level amateurs for 10+ years. He also loves his golf equipment and analysing the data of the latest clubs on the market using launch monitors, specialising in blade irons and low-spinning drivers despite having a chronically low ball flight.

Although Jack has no formal journalism training, He has been reading What's In The Bag articles since he started playing at 12 and studying golf swings since his dad first filmed his swing to reveal one of the worst over-the-top slice swings he reckons has ever been recorded, which set him off on the path to be a coach. His favourite club ever owned was a Ping G10 driver bought from a local top amateur with the hope that some of the quality golf shots would come with it (they didn't), and worst was a Nike SQ driver he only bought because Tiger was using it.

Jack is a member of Sand Moor Golf Club and regularly gets out on the golf course to prepare for tournaments. Jack uses a TaylorMade BRNR Mini driver, a half set of TaylorMade P7MB irons, MG4 wedges and a TaylorMade TP Reserve putter.
