The 5 Best Swing Training Aids

Swing Training Aids can make massive improvements to your golf swing and take your game to the next level. They can improve your tempo, balance, club alignment and ball striking. Here’s our pick of the five best.

Tour Striker Ball

Justin Rose is among the professional players to have used this swing aid. He used it on the driving range before going on to win the WGC-HSBC Champions in 2017.

Tour Striker Ball is an ultra-light and portable way to sequence your arms and body. It’s an inflatable ball connected to an adjustable lanyard to fit all sizes. It can be used flat, under either armpit or inflated between the forearms. It will help you understand the sequence of your arms and body work together during an effective golf swing. This will improve your rhythm and timing to become a high-level ball striker.

Tour Striker PlaneMate

The Tour Striker PlaneMate provides the feeling of a professional takeaway and transition. This will improve your ball striking. By feeling the sense of resisting the tension band early in the backswing, it helps train your body to take the club back correctly. Then, by relaxing your arms and wrists when the tension starts to build, the club will shallow onto a powerful plane inspiring a body rotation for an inside out strike.

The PlaneMate comes with three different resistance bands, giving you the right level of resistance for your current swing to your improved swing.

Tour Striker Educator

The Tour Striker Educator will help you understand how your hands work with the club to improve power and control during your swing. This simple tool, that connects to the top of your club’s grip, will make sure your hands are in the right position, and takes away the guesswork from feel vs real so you know if your hand action is helping or hurting your golf swing.

Speed Trap 2.0

If you’re prone to slices and hooks, the Speed Trap 2.0 will help you fix your shots and hit it longer and straighter. It will make sure your club is on the right plane, and it works for both right and left handed golfers. The tool, which lays on the ground and has rod tethers built into a strong base, helps you align your feet and shoulders, gets your club on the right path, and will help you hit draws, fades or straight shots.

SwingSetter by David Leadbetter

This tool from the legendary golf coach develops your grip, swing plane, release and tempo – the four keys to a great golf swing. The Form Molded Grip on the SwingSetter corrects your grip. The Plane Pointer and the EZSee Clubface allows you to see proper face position and maintain a consistent swing plane.

Adjustable Magnetic Balls promote a correct setting of your wrists on the backswing, setting the stage for an accelerated release through impact. Finally, as you rhythmically swing the SwingSetter – snapping the ball going back, then snapping it again at impact – auditory feedback tells you when you have the perfect tempo.
