- 23 Jul, 2014
There is a whole plethora of golf training aids available today but not all of them actually do a good job if you want to improve your game.To help you with your decision to find golf training aids that actually work, here is a short overview about those which have proven to be good and effective.
Mirror: Simple Yet Effective
A simple golf training mirror can be had for as low as $10 but may be invaluable, especially if you want to improve your putting. A mirror allows you to see yourself at various points while you swing. With it you can spot any flaws easily and then improve on that. Because a mirror is so simple to use yet very effective to improve your game it is probably the most widely used golf training aid.
Impact Bag or Smash Bag
The principle behind an impact or smash bag is also rather simple. Yet, such a bag can immensely help you with training your swing. What you do is hit the bag with your irons so you can learn the feeling of the correct ball impact for your swing.
The Putter Wheel
The Putter Wheel was a hit at the 2014 PGA Show. It is another one of those very simple yet incredibly effective golf training aids. The wheel looks like a cut out middle-section of an ordinary golf ball. But its special weighting and color coding help that you will know if your stroke is making flush, flat contact with the ball.
The Orange Whip
Several professionals say that The Orange Whip is probably the best golf training aid there is today. It's a multi-purpose golf training aid since it helps to improve your golf swing, fitness and strength all at the same time.
Ionic Power Bands
Ionic Power Bands are a choice of many pro golfers today. Those silicone based bands are worn by athletes for various sporting activities and they're in particular suitable and recommended for golfers. The negative ions produced by those bands can help to stay focused during your game.
