What is the Explanar golf training aid?

The Explanar golf training aid was invented by PGA Master Professional Luther Blacklock, and it is the result of his teaching practice for over twenty years.

Helps New Golfers Improve Swing Technique and Cut Their Learning Curve

Luther invented the Explanar to help people learn how to play golf. Learning to play golf can be likened to learning how to ride a bike, and this concept is the basis for the Explanar’s teaching methods.

If you think back to when you were a child, you learnt how to ride a bicycle with training wheels, as this helped you to learn how to balance. Even when the training wheels are removed, no one is able to ride a bicycle in a completely perfect upright position, but instead sway in and out of balance.

This is the same when playing golf and trying to swing along your optimum swing plane. No golfer can always swing along their optimum swing plane, but the Explanar helps you feel the perfect golf swing, and this movement is memorized in your muscles to be re-enacted on the golf course.

Just like when you remove the training wheels and you can ride a bike, when you leave the Explanar your muscles have memorized the swing movement to aid you in hitting the perfect shot on the course.

Teaches More Experienced Golfers Advanced Swing Techniques

If you are a more able golfer, the Explanar can be used to help with a variety of specialized shots, to curing a hook or a slice, or by teaching you how to hit draw and fade shots intentionally, the golf swing aid will be able to refine your complete golfing game.

Explanar Components
