Explanar Golf Training Centre

The Explanar is a revolutionary development in golf instruction designed by Luther Blacklock. It is a complete golf training system based around the fundamental principles of the swing plane and the biomechanics of the body.

Of steel construction, the Explanar Training and Golf Fitness System is changing the way golf is learnt and taught.

How Explanar Works

It comprises of a hoop and a strut with calibrations to allow you to set the Explanar to your optimum swing plane. The Radial Stance Mat™ is integral and enables you to practice intentional draw and fade shots. The Plane Fin™, which is an essential reference point, will act as an indicator as to whether or not you are swinging on your optimum plane.

  • The Power Roller™ trains/retrains and builds the golfing muscles creating a more dynamic and athletic swing.
  • The hoop hinges at the halfway point and both the strut and Plane Fin™ is detachable to enable easy storage.
  • The Explanar Home Training and Golf Fitness System is weather-resistant, powder coated in silver and comes with a 12 month warranty.
