The 5 Best Golf Training Aids of 2014

When it comes to improving your golf game, blasting drives past your playing partners, and lowering your scores, you’ve got a lot of options.

To help you out, we’ve compared the best golf improvement products to help you determine which one is for you.

Here’s how we did it…

First we tested 20 of the most popular golf improvement products. From training aids, to books, to video coaching programs – if it claims to improve your golf game, chances are we tested it.

The criteria we used was, “what is the ACTUAL change in your golf game from using the product?”

Did you ACTUALLY hit the ball better and crisper with all your clubs, even those hard-to-hit long irons and the driver?

Did you have more confidence when faced with a difficult shot such a mid iron to a tight pin on a tricky green?

Did you start hitting longer and straighter drives that impressed your entire foursome?

And most important of all… did you shoot lower scores and start seeing your handicap improve? (if you keep one)

Our reviews focus on what matters to you… Will the product actually improve your golf game? Is it easy to use? What is the best value?

So without further ado, read on below to discover our top 5 golf training products!

Choosing the Right Golf Training Aid

FORMAT

Golf training products generally fall into 3 categories – books, videos, or physical training aid. Each format has its inherent strengths and weaknesses. Books are generally the least expensive, but obviously can’t demonstrate motion as well as video. Training aids have the ability to interact directly with YOUR swing, but generally they can only address 1 aspect of the swing. Video does a great job showing the motions of the swing and can be comprehensive, but is generally more expensive.

PRICE/VALUE

There is a wide range of prices for golf training products. While it can be tempting to go for the least expensive option, it’s important to look at the overall value. Some products are very comprehensive while others, although helpful, may leave you buying more products to get the golf game you want.

REFUND POLICY

Another thing to consider is the company’s refund policy. The better companies stand behind their products with a full money back guarantee, while others only allow refunds of defective products. Make sure you fully understand the billing and refund policy before making a purchase.
