Just heard about this new training aid getting set to release at the Las Vegas expo in September.

It got me thinking as to what everyone's favorite training aid was, and why?

Hopefully you'll list something that can really turn our game around.

I agree with the local PGA pro. You could get 5 different training aids and use them to perfection, but unless they are fixing a major flaw, it won't do much good.

That being said, when I took lessons, the pro I went to had every training aid made it seemed like. We only used one...the inside approach. I was coming over the top big time and this really helped me. It provided instant feedback if you didn't swing properly, and just by looking at it, it made you think about swinging in the proper path.

i recorded my swing the other day just to look at, not really for any "training"
never had a lesson either...guess you could say i have a "natural ability"

best training aid is something you might have lying around. A piece of PVC pipe, or a broom handle, and three golf balls. With this you can learn the golf swing in 4 moves.

I own 2 training aids that I believe are the best for my game. They are the 5-iron Medicus and the weighted Driver Maximus, both made by Medicus Golf.

I use the Medicus 5-iron mainly for tempo, and the Maximus for power.

Learn the swing in 4 moves? Haha...that's funny. It's like selling a can of hope.

My camera is the best training aid I've ever used.

A Mirror!!! it helps check your posture at setup, and at the top of your backswing. Once you get those down, it shouldn't be too much harder. Makes enforcing the fundamentals much easier. Just set up and check and do it over and over.

An aiming stick.
A shaft pulled from an old driver works well. Before each round I put it down on the range before I hit my shots. If my shots are going off line I now know its not in my aiming, its something I'm doing in my swing, and I can correct it without second guessing if its my aim or a slight block or whatever.

I agree with this.....in collaboration with a set of knowledgeable eyes.

    • Thanks for the input @boogielicious.   I've seen, but not in detail, the COVID drills,  I'll take a closer look at them.  You also mentioned the "Towel Drill", is this what you are referring to? It was posted by @mvmac a few years back on TST.
    • No one started out being a "scratch" golfer...……  Be the kind of person you would want to play along with...... I prefer to play with people that are better than me - I find that tends to make me play better.
    • I’d love to see a picture of the MacGregor chipper, if you get a chance. The argument against chippers seems to have a couple of main themes. First, “It’s a single purpose club that takes up one of the 14 slots allowed by the Rules.” True, but we carry two other single purpose clubs and I don’t see a movement to start putting with a driver, even thought the lofts are similar. The other, “Real golfers don’t carry chippers!”, seems to imply some kind of group consensus of what a club set is supposed to consist of; but I gave up trying to run with the pack in my 50’s. 😊
    • No guesses as to whether it'll survive, but I would think whether it does or not, streaming is going to be more prevalent. Despite the problems with Peacock and the USO, maybe they're going to broadcast some tournaments via Peacock? I don't see the COVID situation changing drastically anytime soon and with the uptick in people golfing, you'd figure there would be a chance to capitalize on that but that's not happening AFAIK.
