Welcome to the 2022 edition of GOLF’s Best of Everything, where we bring you the, well… best of everything! In this edition, we take a close look at our favorite training aids. Check out our picks below or browse more items in our pro shop.

Golf is a game that always leaves room for improvement. No matter your skill level, you can always improve.

Not having the ability to achieve perfection is a frustrating sport, but it also motivates golfers to improve every time. Really In doing so each exit is unlikely, but the possibility is always there.

All golfers can identify with the pursuit of a well-hit shot, but few know how to achieve it consistently. This is where training aids come in. These devices are designed to improve your game from top to bottom and thus lower your scores.

Below we’ve highlighted 10 of our favorites of 2022. Check them out below, or head to GOLF.com’s Pro Shop for even more options.

Holdman

Bunker shot practice is important for a well-balanced game, but many golfers don’t have access to a proper sand trap. Enter the Bunker Mate. This device from Why Golf simulates the feeling of hitting out of the sand, without needing to actually be in a bunker.

put a mirror

$49.99

We have yet to find a good putter that sets up differently every time. Call us old fashioned, but we believe the setup, race, and start line should stay consistent. That’s why we developed the Short Game Gains Putting Mirror. This detailed mirror helps you check your alignment, confirm your shot is on track, and start every putt on your intended line. Staying consistent is what the best players do – so why not build that stability into your own putting routine? The SGG posing mirror also comes with a protective metal case. Some features of the SGG putting mirror: eye line alignment shoulder alignment distance of swing path from ball width of ball stance center contact position tee ball on line
