Whether you are new to the game of golf or a veteran player, there’s always a drive to improve continually. Today, we’re fortunate to have a vast universe of tools to hone in on specific weak spots in our game at home or out on the driving range.
From complete course simulators that provide endless play at home on a rainy day to training clubs that develop your swing, we’ve rounded up a collection of some of the best gadgets for upping your golf game—for both scores and enjoying your time on the course.
Eyeline Golf Speed Trap 2.0
The Speed Trap 2.0 is a relatively simple yet highly effective tool that helps golfers who are frustrated with low-quality shots that they can’t figure out a remedy for. The Speed Trap 2.0 uses a straightforward three-step system and visual guide to fix a wide range of swing issues.
Sometimes reviewing video isn’t as helpful as having something on the ground while you’re swinging. The Speed Trap 2.0 is perfect for these scenarios. Get straighter shots, eliminate slicing or hooking, and work on a variety of other swing improvements.
Lagshot 7 Iron
The Lagshot 7 Iron is a flexible-shaft club with a weighted clubhead. The hyper-flexible shaft forces you to “load the club” perfectly with each swing, generating more lag automatically and producing more confident swings with ideal tempo and timing.
When you want more of those perfectly struck iron shots on every round, this clever club is an ideal training tool that makes developing your swing a no-brainer.
Opti-Shot Golf Training Simulator
Yes, the price tag is huge. But, when you consider what’s included, like the projector that displays HD video in 9’x12’ format, the ability to play endless golf at home makes this complete simulator a worthwhile purchase for avid players. Factor in unlimited course play for you and your friends on 15 spectacular courses, and you can see clearly how this sweet setup could pay for itself many times over.
