Golf Training Aids - Will They Really Help?

Golf Training Aids - Will They Really Help?

Golfers learn the game in various ways. A golf training aid is a great way to help you to learn to play golf as they can help you improve all facets of your game.

Students basically learn through one of three ways, by feel, by sound or by visual cues. Depending on which training aid you use, the product may provide all three of them for you.

This may not seem like a big deal but it is. Just imagine if you learn best by sound or being told what to do. However, the training aid that you are using does not make a sound but gives you the feel for what you are supposed to do? I am going to bet that you are going to struggle to improve with that particular practice aid.

So…How do you know which golf practice aid is right for you? If you are already taken lessons form a PGA Professional, then they should be able to help you find a product that matches your learning style. If you do not currently take lessons, you can find a golf webinar at Wireless Golf Coach that can help you.

We are going to break down the golf training aids in to three categories which are broken up by various parts of the game. The three categories that we have broken the golf training aids into are:

Putting Training Aids

Before selecting a putting practice aid, you should first understand what type of stroke that you are trying to make. Are you trying to make a stroke that goes straight back and straight through or are you trying to make a putting stroke with an arc? I have seen players with a natural straight back straight through motion purchase a popular putting golf training aid for an arc putting stroke. Needless to say, it did not work out well for them. Before you go out and try to buy the “Hottest” practice aid, make sure that what you are trying to do and what it will help you do makes sense. If you are not sure, again, ask a PGA Professional.

Full Swing Training Aids

If you follow what we believe, then you understand that there is more than one way to swing a golf club. You just have to find what works for you. As you are looking for a practice aid to help you with your full swing, again you will want to make sure that it makes sense with what you are already doing and the direction that you want your swing to go. The point is to understand why the practice device is good for you and how it is going to help you change your ball flight. It is ALL about the ball flight…right?

Golf Fitness Training Aids

The two most important things in your golf swing are the golf club and the golf ball. However, if your body does not physically allow you to get the club into the proper impact position for the ball flight that you want to produce, you will drive yourself crazy. I know I sound like a broken record but it is imperative that you find a golf fitness training aid that makes sense to what you are trying to accomplish through impact and not what the newest product is. TO find this you will need to consult your golf instructor (if they have fitness knowledge) or your personal trainer (if they have knowledge of the golf swing). You may even want them to talk so the best product can be selected for you.
