|The business of golf training aids has become big business. Some of the manufacturers are spending millions in advertising to promote their products and tell you through print media, TV or even pros why you need to spend your money on their golf training aid.
With some golfers thinking that these manufacturers are attempting to sell snake oil, how do you know which golf practice aid is good for you? Here are some suggestions that we use with our students and have been successful with improving their golf games while using them.
One of the most popular golf training aids that we use with our students for the full swing is a weighted golf club. With the extra weight, our students can fix multiple challenges in all parts of their golf swing. A weighted golf club is more difficult to manipulate for the student and will swing on a more natural path on the backswing as well as the forward swing. In addition, many students are able to feel the transition at the top of their swing for the very first time.
One of the other golf training aids that we employ with our students is a putting arc. Now before we get started, if you tend to stroke your putts with a straight back and straight through putting theory, this putting aid is not of you. If you believe that the putter should swing in an arc then this is by far the best training aid to improve your putting. The deluxe model is very durable and can be taken anywhere. It will allow you to practice while you are on the putting green, in your office or at home.
No matter how you swing the putter, a laser putter is one of the golf training aids that can improve your game. Depending on which laser putter you employ you can use it indoors or out. The laser putter will allow you to monitor and improve your alignment before you even make a stroke. As you make a putting stroke with the laser pointing at a wall, the laser should not run up the wall on the forward swing. If it does, this means that your left wrist has broken down through impact. When this happens in a putting stroke it is impossible to strike a putt solidly and the player will struggle with distance control.
Another of the golf training aids that our students use is a discount putting mat that they can place in their office or in their home. Knowing this sounds odd, these mats are not used to attempt to make putts. They are used to strictly work on mechanics away from the golf course or any real putting green.
It seems like all manufactures of golf training aids claim to have the better mouse trap. Above we have listed a few that we have had success with in our own golf lessons. Bigger does not always mean better as most of the time the best golf training aids are very simple.
