Do you slice? Hit the ball too high? Check out the Swing Gyde. It gets a lot of use at our golf school.

The Swing Gyde helps you keep your swing on plane. This golf aid will give you immediate feedback to help you improve for those of you who lay off the club on the backswing. TheSwing Gyde fixes a myriad of bad swing problems, such as slicing, hitting the ball too high, hitting weak shots, and pulling shots, and helps you obtain the correct follow-through position as well.

As you can see in the featured image, the swinggyde attaches to any club and has a small cupped piece that fits on your wrist both on the backswing and the follow-through! This immediately tells you if you have the club on the plane or not! A great teaching aid.  To purchase a SwingGyde, go here!

As the collapsing lead arm is one of the most common faults, this teaching aid is beneficial.

The TacTic Arm Aid has a hard plastic spine running down its length. If the arm bends, it gives a loud clicking sound letting the golfer know when and where the arm is collapsing. This helps to ensure that the left arm stays straight from the backswing to follow-through and ensures solid contact with the ball.

This is the most used training aid at the Mel Sole Golf School. 

It helps the student create a good coil on the backswing by learning to keep the lead arm straight, and gets rid of the dreaded ‘chicken-wing’ almost completely on the extension and follow-through!  It’s a teaching aid I highly recommend to most of my students!

When I ask my students how often they practice, the answer usually is “Not as often as I should.”  

Work, kids, and household chores often get in the way of getting to the range.  Now you can walk out your back door and get some backyard practice on your short game, which by the way, is still the best way to lower your scores.  Thanks to golfstinks.com for introducing us to the interesting training aid!

Favorite Backyard Practice Aid to Improve your Golf!

This is a great tool for improving your short game at home!

How cool is it to be able to work on your short game at home? Whether you are an avid golfer, weekend hack or an I-play-once-a-year-at-a-tournament-to-get-drunk participant, we got something for you. Part of enjoying the game is playing it and having a decent round, right? And how do you go about shooting a decent round…practice!

So, the kind people at Rukket Sports were gracious enough to send us their Chipping Net and Range Marker. This is the sort of thing every golfer at every level should have. As long as you have a little space in your yard to chip, you’re good to go. Not to mention it is well constructed, priced right and folds up for easy storage.

As seen in the photo above, the net serves as a…you guessed it, chipping target. Let’s say you want to work on shorter irons. No problem, flip this bad boy over and voila, it’s a range marker that can mark 50, 100 or 150 yards. A perfect gift for the old man with Father’s Day just around the corner.

My definition of golf practice is “Focused Repetition with Feedback.”

Golf practice is really enhanced with training aids as they provide that essential feedback that lets you know if your mechanics are off.

There are literally hundreds of golf teaching aids on the market, all designed to help the golfer achieve the golf swing’s correct positions. (Anyone who’s seen the movie Tin Cup will understand what length golfers will go to help their golf swing!) Here are three golf aids that I highly recommend and use at the Mel Sole Golf School with my students.

1.TacTic Arm Aid.

As the collapsing left arm (or right arm, if you’re left-handed) is one of the most common faults, this teaching aid is beneficial. The TacTic Arm Aid has a hard plastic spin running down its length. If the arm bends, it gives a loud clicking sound letting the golfer know when and where the arm is collapsing. This helps to ensure that the left arm stays straight from the backswing to follow-through and ensures solid contact with the ball.

$39.95


2.Plane-EZ.

The Plane-EZ is for those golfers who have either a “flying right elbow” or have a problem “coming over the top.” This golf aid helps you get into a “tray” position (think of a waiter holding a tray) and keep your elbows closer together, preventing that problematic flying right elbow.

$39.95


3.Swing Gyde.

Do you slice? Hit the ball too high? Check out the Swing Gyde. It gets a lot of use at our golf school. The Swing Gyde helps you keep your swing on plane. This golf aid will give you immediate feedback to help you improve for those of you who lay off the club on the backswing. The Swing Gyde fixes a myriad of bad swing problems, such as slicing, hitting the ball too high, hitting weak shots, and pulling shots, and helps you obtain the correct follow-through position as well.

As an instructor who teaches golfers from beginners to Tour Players, I sometimes have to find a way to get my students to “feel” what it is I’m trying to get him/her to accomplish. 

As I’ve always said, “There is perception, and then there is reality”  Those two things are VERY different.  The way I get these students to accomplish the move they are looking for I use training aids.  I am a great believer in training aids, and here is my definition of practice.  “Focused repetition with feedback.”

1. Focused.

You are focusing on one thing and one thing only.  Whether it is keeping your arm straight, weight shift, or balance, you should not be trying to work on more than one thing at a time.

2. Repetition.

Doing the task over and over again to make it a habit

3. With Feedback.

How do you know if you are doing it correctly?  With a training aid designed specifically for the fault or move you are working on, you will get feedback (even if you don’t like the feedback you get at first)

Here are my Top 3 Training Aids and why I use them.

1. Arm Tac-Tic – My most used training aid.  Really helps students who have trouble getting rid of the dreaded “chicken wing.”

2.  Putting Mirror.  A “must-have” training aid.  This will help you achieve two of the most important aspects of putting that 90% of good putters have.  Eyes over the ball and shoulders square to the intended line!

3. Swing Gyde – This training aid is for the golfers who do not swing the club back “on plane” Put the club “in the slot” every time with this training aid.
