Top 9 Training Aids For A Successful Golf Game
5.) Benderstik - Developed by famed instructor Mike Bender, this aid provides instant feedback on your swing. The large rod and foam ball can be positioned in a variety of ways that allow you to take your normal swing and will immediately tell you if your swing is on plane, your hands are in a proper position or if your head or body are tilting incorrectly.
4.) Medicus - The famed dual hinging golf club has enjoyed a long run of success. The club breaks down on it's dual hinges when not positioned correctly at various points throughout the swing. Jim Furyk will probably never benefit from it - but tens of thousands of amatuer golfers have.
3.) Putter Wheel - Perhaps the "hottest" aid at the 2014 PGA Show, the Putter Wheel is so simple and yet, so effective. The wheel looks like a the middle third of a golf ball, but with special color codings on the side to improve your eye positioning and the weighting will let you know if your stroke is making flush, flat contact with the ball.
