The Best Golf Training Aids

By Marc Jenkins

Every golfer needs just a bit of additional help other than the timeworn advice to practice his swing, putt and other basic golfing elements. To fill that niche, many companies have created a variety of golf training aids that will help you in becoming more effective on the course. Some of these training aids are designed around the actual swing, its tempo and direction, whereas others help you work on your overall game. With such a wide variety of golf training aids to choose from, you may need some guidance to figure out which ones could actually make you a better player.

The Swing Tempo

The Swing Tempo is an amazing invention that was created to help you understand your swing tempo and how you can improve it by using different techniques. It can be easily attached to any golf club and can detect the exact tempo of your swing, as well as help you maintain an identical swing no matter what iron, club or driver you are using. This golf training aid allows you to adjust the signal duration of your backswing, topswing and downswing in increments of 1/10 of a digital second. It can also be used to remove unnecessary components of your swing and, if needed, can guide you to execute the optimal stroke in any situation. The Swing Tempo usually retails for $129.99 at most sporting goods stores and online retailers.

The Putting Arc Deluxe

The Putting Arc Deluxe is another golf training aid that many golfers are rating among some of their favorites available today. It is finished in beautiful solid wood and also includes an instructional CD that will teach you step-by-step how to use it. The Putting Arc Deluxe guides you in how to execute a repeatable and simple putt that will work on any course. It also presents you with the ability to direct the ball where you intend it to go. The Putting Arc Deluxe allows the clubhead to consistently go in a perfect circle, which allows an ideal putt almost every single time. The Putting Arc Deluxe has been used by over 200 touring PGA professionals and has produced amazing results for them, including 35 professional victories. You should be able to locate the Putting Arc Deluxe at many sporting goods stores, pro shops and online for around $90.

The Golf LaunchPad Golf Simulator

As far as many golfers are concerned, the best golf training aid is an in-home golf simulator, and one of the best ones around is the Golf LaunchPad Golf Simulator. Not only does it give you the ability to improve your game on many different levels, but it also adds bonuses in the extra categories, such as appeal, affordability and overall satisfaction. The Golf LaunchPad Golf Simulator allows you to virtually compete on over 800 of the top courses throughout the world and is easily set up by plugging it into a seamless USB port minus an external power source.
