3 products that can help you improve your game in the new year
If you want to get serious about improving your game and creating a new you on the golf course in 2021, then you need to start training.
You don’t need to wake up at 6 a.m. every morning, drink a carton of raw eggs, and run through the streets of Philadelphia like Rocky, but you can take advantage of the myriad of golf training aids out there designed to help you hit it farther, chip it closer, and putt it straighter.
To assist you in your training quest, we’ve put together a short list of three products that you’ll definitely want to consider to get your game humming in 2021.
So here you go. Hop to it. You’ve got work to do.
Rapsodo Mobile Launch Monitor
Knowledge is key when it comes to improving, and with a Rapsodo, you’ll learn just about everything there is know about your game.
The mobile launch monitor easily pairs with your phone to provide you with vital statistics, such as shot distance, ball speed, club speed, launch angle and shot shape. In addition, the Rapsodo takes a video of each of your shots and allows you to play them back with shot tracer so you can track your ball flight. The video can be slowed down, too, so you can break down your swing and pinpoint any problem areas.
With its GPS capability, you can also track where your shots land on the driving range, and with the bag mapping feature, you can keep the average yardages of your shots by club so you know what to use on the course.
Currently, you can save $75 on a Rapsodo.
Eyeline Golf Classic Mirror
So many strokes are gained or lost on the greens that it make sense for amateurs and pros alike to dedicate a good portion of their practice time to working on their putting. Eyeline Golf’s alignment mirror is one of the best tools available to help you get the ball rolling on the proper line, ensure sweet spot contact and improve your consistency with the flatstick.
In addition to helping keep you aligned properly, you can also insert tees to create a swing path gate and to monitor your backswing. Probably one of the best benefits is this product trains you to keep your eyes over the ball. The alignment mirrors are great for full practice sessions as well as for quickly re-training muscle memory before a round.
MoRodz Golf Alignment Rods
Just like with putting, alignment is key with every other club in your bag. Improper alignment is one of the most common issues for amateurs, and with a little bit of work, you can put yourself in much better position to score well.
Put the alignment rods parallel to each other on the practice tee to ensure your feet and swing path are square to the ball, or arrange them perpendicularly to work on ball position. These can be used for so many different drills and in so many parts of your game that they’re one of the most effective training aids available.
