Lowest Score Wins (Barzeski/Wedzik)

My favorite Golf discovery book!

GolfLug

Pros: Perspective, nuts and bolts, detailed math, absolutely nothing missed

Cons: It does not play golf for you

The most powerful concept in the book - treating every golf hole as an independent unit and treating its scoring methodology as an algorithm. The variables of the algorithm (driving, approach, pitching, chipping, putting) are assigned relative weight - something very cleverly and effectively dubbed separation value. Mathematicians would call it co-efficient of variable. Each...

Puttist-Digital Putting Trainer (Silver)

Puttist-Digital Putting Trainer (Silver)

“ I wanted to make sure that I wrote a follow up on this because when I researched the Puttist, it seemed that there was not too much out there as far as what people thought after using it for a while.  This is probably because not that many people have it considering the price of it........So I've had the Puttist for 3 weeks now and I have been using it just about every day.  For...” --bjwestner

Path2Putt

Path2Putt

“ Path2Putt is a simple product and in the training aid world of golf, that is refreshing. Essentially, the aid is a laser that attaches to your putter shaft. It comes with a plastic clip that aligns the laser down the shaft so that the laser dot is just in front of the putter face. From there all you do is find a line and keep the dot on that line. That's all there is to it and you are now...” --TourSpoon

Swing Plane Perfector

Swing Plane Perfector

“Driveway markers are some of the best training aids available. At a cost of about $2.99, they're readily available to those of us who live in the northern states where we, sadly, need to mark out our driveways and sidewalks with these bright orange fiberglass (often) sticks so that we don't snowplow our yards for the many months we have snow.   But the irony is that in these same...” --iacas

Joey D Golf - Golf Body 1

Joey D Golf - Golf Body 1

“I am always looking for workouts that improve my fitness.  After years of bike racing and a couple of surgeries, my body had lost flexibility in some areas including upper body rotation, shoulder rotation and hips.  I've been doing stretching and therapy exercises, but that wasn't improving my flexibility all the way. My limiters were how far I could rotate my shoulders on the back...” --boogielicious

Dave Stockton - Unconscious Scoring: Dave Stockton's Guide to Saving Shots Around the Green

“I've read Dave Stockton's Unconscious Putting and use a lot of the set up he suggested from that book, so I was eager to see if his short game technique.  The book is a fairly easy read.  I did find my self re-reading sections on set up, as they were a bit confusing at first.  But after a quick review, they are straight forward.  I am not posting any pictures...” --boogielicious

Orange Whip Training Aid

Orange Whip Training Aid

“ Appearance - Hold it and the Whip oozes quality and durability. It has heft and flex throughout the club - but not too much - it flexes less below the grip and becomes progressively more flexible as it proceeds towards the tip. Its appearance gives the impression of steel - but since it flexes, it is high quality plastics - a golf grip on one end, a thicker middle, a thinner tip, and topped...” --Mr. Desmond
