Perfect Practice Makes Perfect – What’s The Best Training Aid?

Wow, what a response from my Rock Heads! TONS of great comments from clubmakers (including some solid component recommendations that I’m working on bringing to The Cave) and a bunch of new friends & followers on MySpace, Twitter & Facebook! I’ll kicking off some new promotions on all three social networks soon, so make sure you’re signed up so you don’t miss out!

Today I’m looking for some advice on training aids. I’ve got more than few on my hands (see my selection here), but what I really want to know is what YOU use! What training aid has done the most for your game, and how did it help?

My favorite? Gotta be this Eyeline Bullseye Putting Cup. It’s an amazing tool for practicing putts right before a round. By cutting your cup down by about 30%, it makes you work about 100% harder to sink ’em! But all that work pays off when you reach the first green and the hole seems HUGE.

But maybe I’m missing out! Let me and the rest of your Rock Head friends know in the comments below what’s worked for you, or better yet, what to avoid at all costs!


PS: Heck, it doesn’t even have to be a device…if you’ve developed a routine at the range or a warm-up checklist that never fails, be a sport and share with us!

    I am buying this weekend, a back yard hitting net, cutting the grass in a certain spot in the back yard yard 3 different heights, and makes a small sand pit to hit out of. I am going with the “the more you hit it, the more consistant you are” idea.

    I like the Swing Gyde (Formerly Swing Ayde). The Medicus 5 iron keeps me in check too. I’ll have to try out that Eyeline cup.
