Every golfer needs alignment sticks, period. They are simple to use and extremely versatile. Do not go to the range without them unless you are prepared to completely waste your time. There are plenty out there, but here are the ones we use:
If you are going to make big improvements, you are going to want to record your swing on video at some point. Luckily, that Smart Phone in your pocket records slow motion video almost as good as the Konica Minolta Swing Vision you see on TV. But unless you have a buddy to stand behind you and work the camera, you’re going to need a tripod.
From bad impact to directional issues, getting your swing on plane really is a “magical cure” for so many faults in your golf swing. The Plane Sight Laser Golf Swing is easy to use. Just screw the laser pointer into the bottom of your grip, turn it on, and follow the red laser to get your swing on the correct plane. After a few sessions with this training aid, you’ll be amazed how straight you hit the ball.
The moment of truth in Golf? Impact of course. This next training aid has got to be one of the simplest tools available. Simply fill the Impact Training Bag with old towels or clothes and start hitting into it. After just a few strikes, something magical happens. You will instantly “feel” what proper contact should be. Then you can take that “feel” to the golf course and watch your iron game improve overnight.
This is one of the best tools on the market for learning how to use your wrists in the golf swing. Attach the Swingyde to your club, and you will quickly learn exactly what it feels like to fully set your wrists in the backswing.
Using the Swingyde is a great way to improve your contact and add some power to your swing. I keep my Swingyde attached to an old wedge lying around my office so that I can always pick it up, take a few swings, and engrain that feeling of a proper wrist set.
