That Help Lower Your Scores…
Today’s marketplace is flooded with golf training aids. You can find one for nearly every part of the game. Today we will review a few of the most popular ones on the market.
And more and more are being introduced every day.
While a golf training aid won’t lower your golf handicap overnight or replace golf tips, it will help improve your golf game if you work with it faithfully.
Below are the top five training aids beginner golfers often ask about.
Designed to improve your swing or a phase of your swing. These products help correct faults, groove mechanics, and/or ingrain the feel of the swing.
The key, as always, is finding a training aid that works for you.
The ASSIST SWING TRAINER training club improves your swing and increases strength. It’s like getting a golf lesson free of charge.
Its weighted head and bent shaft teaches the correct hand action. The ASSIST improves muscle memory, extension, and weight transfer as well as tempo and timing.
As the club is swung, the proper release action is exaggerated to eliminate slicing, increase clubhead speed, and produce straight shots.
In addition, the training grip places the thumbs and index fingers Vs of your hands in the traditional 11 o’clock and 12 o’clock positions. You can use it at home, on the range, or before your golf lessons.
Helps to eliminate slicing, and build the perfect swing!
The Matzie ASSIST Swing Trainer is the world’s best-selling swing trainer with hundreds of thousands in use by PGA, Senior PGA, and LPGA touring pros, as well as golf schools, universities, and amateurs of all skill levels.
The ASSIST is ideal for pre-game or pre-practice warm-ups or for everyday use to improve your swing.
The ASSIST is available for men, women, and juniors, and for right-handers and left-handers. An instructional video comes with the product. The cost is $70.
The Tac-Tic Elbow golf swing tempo trainer was designed to give the same type of feedback to a player who breaks down at the elbow.
When you watch the more powerful and consistent players on tour, it is evident that they keep their lead arm fully extended during the backswing and throughout the impact position.
Simply put, the wider the arc of the arm swing, the more power generated through the clubhead.
Many players have tried to keep their lead arm extended during their swing, but fail because they cannot feel the arc, unaware of a break down at the elbow.
When a player swings with the ELBOW Tac-Tic on the lead arm, they are made aware of a break down in the elbow by the sound of a “click”.
By practicing with the Tac-Tic elbow golf swing tempo trainer, a player is given the feedback necessary to help them keep their lead arm extended.
Another very useful application of the Tac-Tic elbow golf swing tempo trainer is to use it on the right arm. Many players misunderstand the proper position of the right arm throughout the golf swing.
Many golfers actually try to keep their right arm close to the body during the backswing, narrowing their swing arc end, limiting their power, distance and accuracy.
The right arm should extend away from the body, beginning the bend midway back then reaching a right angle at the top of the backswing.
With the ELBOW Tac-Tic on the right arm, a player should hear the click just after the midway back point, reaching the top of the backswing.
The ELBOW Tac-Tic used on either arm will educate a player as to what an extended arm feels like thus enabling the player to achieve a more powerful and consistent golf swing.
While most golf swing-aids target only one area of the swing, the effectiveness of TruSpeed Lag and Speed Trainer lies in the application of proper golf swing techniques while training at “faster than normal” speeds.
TruSpeed targets Lag, Tempo, Speed, Transition, Weight Transfer, and Balance by providing feedback throughout the ENTIRE swing
Golfers have consistently said TruSpeed helps them feel the proper path of the club on the takeaway.
They are able to feel the CLUB SET at the TOP of the swing, and MOST IMPORTANTLY, feel the ability to RETAIN THE LAG of the club in the transition and downswing crucial to increasing the speed at the moment of IMPACT.
This trainer develops the feel of hitting a ball properly and is easy to use and understand.
It’s based on the idea that many beginning players have certain swing faults (chicken wing, flying elbows, etc.) or that they try to scoop the ball off the ground when hitting.
Sometimes, even the best golf instruction can’t rid a player of certain faults.
The fact is the Impact Ball works.
Placed between the forearms and held there through your swing. The ball is bi-colored, and the only thought to focus on is to getting the ball to change colors as the club moves through the impact area.
The product trains golfers to strike the ball solidly with a square clubface, eliminating flipping or scooping the ball.
The Impact Ball addresses every phase of the game—chipping, pitching, putting, driving, and bunker play.
You can hit balls on the range with the Impact Ball or practice swinging the club with it at home.
Training with the Medicus Dual Hinge Driver ingrains the proper motion into your swing.
Designed to improve timing, tempo, and rhythm, the Dual Hinge Driver synchronizes the movement of your arms, hands, and body.
Once you learn to swing the trainer without breaking it you know you are swinging in tempo and on plane.
You’ll get rid of that slice and start hitting longer, straighter shots and start shooting lower golf scores!

Remember, a golf training aids are not a panacea, as I often mention in my golf tips.
It won’t dramatically improve your game overnight. It won’t make up for good course management. And it won’t take the place of a one-on-one golf lesson.
But it will ingrain the fundamentals of a good swing, cut strokes off your scores, and lower your golf handicap.
Just make sure the golf training aids you choose are right for you.
To sum it all up.
The most important lesson in golf is to just have fun. The internet is a good source for information on how to play the game.
