Which Golf Training Products Do You Really Need?

Jun 22, 2008
If you have ever looked into buying golf training products you will know that there are an abundance of them. Make sure though, that you know what you are looking for and for what purpose you need the golf training products. A lot of golfers end up spending vast sums of money on golf aids that just don't work for them.

Even though you don't have any major problems with your game, there is still room for improvement in some area or other. Maybe you could find a way of getting more distance with your drives or play more consistently; or maybe you should look at some golf strength training aids to help you get fit for golf.

In this article I will go over the top four categories and types of golf training products that are available. The first thing you have to determine is why you think you need a golf training aid. You have to be able to identify which specific problem you have with your golf game or which area you want to improve.

First, you might not need golf training equipment; instead you could start checking out a few golf guides (eBooks) or golf DVD's that deal with a specific topic that may help you. There are many good eBooks and DVD's on helping you with your golf swing, how to fix a slice, golf stretching exercises, golf fitness programs, or general golf lessons. If you decide that you would rather have a physical golf training product, then here are the different categories available:

Full Swing Training Aids: This category is full of training aids but not all of them are good solutions for the complete golf swing. The top choices in this category would have to be the hinged golf clubs such as the Medicus Dual Hinge clubs or the Refiner hinged training clubs. Another good option is the Leadbetter Swing Setter which helps with your grip, release, tempo, and swing plane. Alternatively, try weighted golf clubs from Momentus or a full swing trainer by Explaner.

Golf Fitness Training Aids: These are my favorite golf aids because you will see a marked improvement in all areas of your game once you are fit for golf. The top product in this category is a range of fitness training products from the GolfGym. Again, weighted golf clubs can be used to build up your golf specific muscles and to raise your flexibility level. The Explaner not only improves your golf swing, it also strengthens your golf muscles and increases your flexibility through the use of a weighted roller.

Golf Grip Training Aids: A good golf grip promotes a good golf swing therefore golf grip training aids are a good investment to perfect your golf grip. There are various different types of these aids, from special golf gloves that train you to grip the club perfectly every time and with the right pressure to molded grips that slip over your regular grip of your golf clubs. There are also grip aids that are for strengthening the muscles used for gripping the club.

Putting Training Aids: As a good putting game can significantly lower your score, there are many golf putting aids to help you perfect this area of your game. Some putting aids use a laser to help you with alignment and others are used to help with the all important aspect of good tempo. For alignment, there are many putting tracks or guides available, and if you need help with the correct position of your forearms and hands, there are several braces that can help.

The golf training categories above are what I consider the top 4. There are many more specific categories that deal with the golf tempo, swing plane, release, alignment, weight transfer, impact position, balance, and short game. There is a golf training aid to suit every golfers problem area or aspect that they want to improve. Make sure you buy the correct golf training product that will help you with the area of your game that needs improving.
