In recognition of this award, ManBearPig will be receiving the following  prizes:

High Tech Swing Trainer - "SwingSmart"

The SwingSmart is a Bluetooth-enabled sensor that attaches to your club shaft (MyGolfSpy Review - Click Here) and with the use of a downloadable free App, wirelessly sends swing information to your Smartphone or Tablet. After you hit a ball, the SwingSmart instantly displays swing speed, tempo, face angle, and angle of attack. Additionally, with 3-D SwingViewTM, you can see the route of the club and the club face from any angle, including overhead in full color 3D graphics.

The SwingSmart also has a special Training Mode which allows you to get your all swing data without having to hit a golf ball. It is a great to keep your golf game sharp during the longer winter months away from the course. It's also a great way to work on a new swing motion without having the pressure of hitting a golf ball perfectly down the fairway or range.

The SwingSmart works on every club in your bag, including your putter, and it’s so easy to use. Just go through your normal pre-shot routine, take your stance, and make a swing. That’s it. The SwingSmart automatically and instantly sends your swing data to your Smartphone or Tablet. The SwingSmart sensor module and free App are designed to be the most accurate and easy to use golf swing analyzer on the market today. The SwingSmart was designed by golfers, for golfers, so you get the information you need, to make the changes you want, without being overwhelmed by reams of data.

The SwingSmart is made by NewSpin Golf, LLC. All the engineering and design of the SwingSmart was done by NewSpin Golf’s own engineers at the company’s headquarters in the suburbs of Chicago, IL. The SwingSmart is made and assembled in California.

It’s me, the full frontal lobotomy survivor, I just decided to use my never before used user name. Pretty slick, huh?

Anyway, I would like to invite any and all of you who have not joined us in the forum to MBP’s thread(Everything Else section), which , as the sub title says, is like all of sitting around on the patio post-round, with your favorite beverage discussing anything, everything & sometimes nothing. No subject is off limits & there is no such thing as off-topic.

Golf, women, cars, football, young women, watches & time pieces, and anything else that ya want to bring to the table. There are no out of bounds(with in and if someone drinks too much and stumbles off of the patio, guys like WD, Tuna & yes, our newest MOM, BMP, will gladly, as they have done with me numerous times, bring ya back on the patio with a smile and an encouraging

It’s uunique, it’s funny, it’s thought provoking & it’s a place to unwind amongst friends.

No right or wrong answers and no judgements. Just friends going wherever the last post leads us or the next one takes us.

Please join us
