Swing Training Aids / May 2012

Over the past year GolfTest USA has received many requests from golfers asking us to test training aids. We have completed testing on many training aids and there are several more currently undergoing testing. We had golfers use these training aids for one month and carefully follow the instructions and/or videos each training aid came with. GolfTest USA then had each golfer rate several criteria on a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being best. We then complied all the results and posted them below.

There is a large difference among golfers when it comes to what type of training aid will work best for each individual golfer. (That is why there are so many to choose from). There are many aids that are designed to help specific swing flaws. So even a training aid that didn’t rate well overall may be of great benefit to a certain percentage of golfers.

The training aids that achieved the highest ratings have been awarded GolfTest USA’s “Seal Of Excellence”. (For more info click here) Those training aids have been designated with three asterisks after them.

Let us know if there are other training aids you would like us to test and we will contact the manufacturers and see if they will participate in our next testing cycle. requestatest@golftestusa.com
