FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHO ARE THE PROFESSIONAL GOLFERS USED IN THE TI™?
We've studied and measured over 1400 videos of the best in the world, but because of endorsement rights we cannot name exactly what specific golfer we chose for say TI5 or TI8. What we can tell you is that many professional golfers share nearly identical rhythms and tempos and we chose the most accomplished golfer in each category to pattern.
WHY IS THIS DIFFERENT THAN PHONE APPS OR ALL THE OTHER DEVICES THAT TRY TO TEACH TEMPO?
You will continuously feel and hear where the swing is, as opposed to a beeping from a device not physically linked to the swing at all. Tremendous difference in learning. Also the TI Protracks contain a Lag note that builds power in the swing. Finally, and just as important, APPS can't sense and synch with the take away so you're off to a bad start already.
IS IT TOO AMBITIOUS TO TRY TO COPY A PRO ?
Not at all. As long as you select the correct Pro to copy. This is why the TI™ settings offer such a wide range.
WITHOUT A COACH OR PRO, HOW DO I KNOW WHICH TEMPO IS BEST FOR ME?
The dial switch on the grip end allows trying different Protracks as quick and as easy as possible. However, we can help with your Tempo fitting and would be happy to. Simply share a video of your best swing and we'll take some measurements, look at your style, and make a recommendation.
I HAVE A WAGGLE BEFORE I SWING - WOULD THIS SET OFF THE SENSOR TO START THE TONE?
The TI™ does sense the waggle and we encourage performing the waggle in the same tempo and rhythm as the full swing. This adds another dynamic dimension to the often underrated waggle.
HOW LOUD IS IT.. IF I WAS IN A STALL NEXT TO SOMEONE USING THIS WOULD THEY HEAR IT ?
It is loud enough that the person's directly next to you would hear it. Being courteous and alternating your swing with the golfers right next to you takes care of that.
WHAT'S THE BEST WAY TO PRACTICE WITH A TI™?
Just swing and listen. The more you use it the more it will help you. The Progressive drill is also an excellent idea: Four waggles, Four half swings, and then 4 full swings. Also use your TI™ with lessons and other practice drills. (That's why it's a club!)
"I LOVE THIS CLUB BUT AFTER I FINISH MY SWING IT "PLAYS AGAIN" ?
This happens for some golfers and not for others. Swinging to a very smooth finish and hold with no bouncing of the club head can eliminate it.
I'M A PRETTY GOOD PLAYER, HOW WILL THIS HELP ME TAKE STROKES OFF MY GAME OR LOWER MY HANDICAP?
Shape your shots hitting ALL of them with the exact same tempo and rhythm. Carry your tempo from your favorite shot to your least favorite shot.
DO YOU HAVE A LEFT-HANDED CLUB?
We don't currently have a left-handed model of the TI™. Except for the head the rest of the design is ambidextrous so that we can produce them in the future.
DO YOU HAVE TESTIMONIALS, CUSTOMER COMMENTS?
"I LOVE THIS CLUB! Ti4 had that rhythm and tempo I
have on the range and constantly work on to bring to
the course. Normally when I warm up I am looking to
find that feeling for the day. Now with the Ti I just
need to turn it on and there it is, perfect."
"I have checked out the product and it is very cool. I actually had a few of my students use it and a couple of the starters as well and all the feedback was very positive. All liked the ease of understanding the product and they enjoyed working with it." Great job!!
- Brian J. Director of Instruction
"So far it seems to have helped my swing with just one session. I will
give you the verdict after I have had a few rounds in. I think your
device has great potential as being one of the greatest learning golf
gadgets. I have the Garmin watch which deals with tempo but it has its
limits. It is not real-time like your device."
- Andre G.
"Earlier today I came across this product and just from watching videos I was amazed at how you managed to make such a necessity in the golf game so simple. Ive tried many swing tempo tools and this seems to outdo all of them."
- Thomas G. (Pepsi Tour player)
"I'm really excited about the new version of the TI. I have owned and practiced with the original TI for the last four years and it has really helped my swing. I only find time to play around 10 rounds of golf a year. A few days before a scheduled round I start working with the TI (setting 4). The TI really helps the timing of my swing and gives me confidence on the tee. I can honestly say it has knocked 6-8 strokes off my game. "
- Greg N.
"I would take the prototype outside and swing for 5-10 minutes on setting 5 before heading to the golf course. Since my home course doesn't have a driving range, it was a great way to get the tempo of my swing set for the first tee. Now with the hittable TI, Ihave the added feedback of both the sound and see the ball flight."
- Jeff Grimes
"When Craig introduced me to his proto-type TI, I was very excited. I used to play a lot of golf, then I had kids. Getting back into the game, I quickly realized my swing stunk all of the time. The TI quickly improved my tempo and rhythm. I found my natural swing on the #7 setting, hearing the cues helped me lock in my swing. I only wished I was able to hit the ball with it. Now I can."
- Frank Ammirato
"As the owner of an original TI, I immediately felt and saw the difference in my swing and the repeatability of it. I was equally excited to learn of the newer model that I can use on the range. The positive feedback of actually seeing the ball flight after a well timed swing has been a very positive impact to my game. Looking forward to my 2015 season! Can"t wait."
- Steve B
"I used the original TI trainer for a summer to see if it would improve my golf game. I started by going to the driving range with the club, taking a few swings with the TI, then switching over to my normal clubs. By the end of the first day I had settled in on the setting that felt most comfortable, a '7'. From there, I would take a few practice swings with the TI club before every round of golf just to get the feel for the tempo that I had been working on. At the beginning of that summer I was shooting 110+ for 18 holes. By the end of the summer, I was regularly shooting under 100, with a personal best of a 94... that's a 16 stroke improvement. After the initial trips to the driving range learning the tempo, all it took was a few practice swings before my rounds to get the feel. I think I'll be doing some more training with the club next spring!"
