Best training aids 2022: 10 tools to take your game to the next level

Welcome to GOLF’s 2022 edition of the Best of Everything, where we’re providing you with the, well… best of everything! In this edition, we take a close look at our favorite putting 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 get better.

Lacking the ability to achieve perfection makes for a frustrating sport, but it also gives golfers motivation for improvement every time out. Actually doing so every time out is unlikely, but the possibility is always there.

Chasing the high of a well-struck shot is something that every golfer can relate to, but few know how to achieve that consistently. That’s where training aids come in. These devices are designed to improve your game from top to bottom, and with it bring your scores down.

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

Practicing bunker shots is important to a well-rounded game, but lots of golfers don’t have access to a proper sand trap. Enter the Bunker Mate. This device from Why Golf simulates the feel of hitting out of the sand, without the need to actually be in a bunker.

All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. If you buy a linked product, GOLF.COM may earn a fee. Pricing may vary.

Eye alignment is key to a consistent putting stroke, and this mirror will help you dial it in. All you need to do is set up the mirror, stand over the ball and roll putts. You’ll quickly figure out the proper eye alignment for your stroke.

Do you struggle to find someone to film your swing when at the range? If so, the GPOD is perfect for you. The GPOD is easy to stake in the ground behind you so you can mount your phone and get a good look at your swing.

If you want to add some serious speed to your swing — and in little time — look no further than the Stack Speed System training aid. This dynamic speed training formulated by Dr. Sasho MacKenzie will make you faster than ever.

If you’re serious about improving your game, you’ll need a launch monitor to get all your numbers. For that, check out the Approach R10 Launch Monitor from Garmin. This launch monitor is portable, easy to use and will give you instant feedback on your swing so you can fix all your flaws.

Winter is coming, but that doesn’t mean your game has to suffer. If you want to practice your putting indoors all winter long, give this mat from Perfect Practice a try. By the time the Masters rolls around, you’ll be putting as well as the pros (results may vary).

This training aid is perfect for adding a little fun to your practice routine. Chippo combines your golf practice with a game of cornhole. Best of all, it uses foam practice balls so you can get some practice done in the comfort of your own home — just watch out for the lamps!

Want to smooth out your swing? Look no further than the Lag Shot. This product is designed to be almost impossible to hit — until you have proper fundamentals. Once you start hitting the ball well with the Lag Shot, using a normal club will be a breeze.

Tracking stats for your game can be an arduous task, but with Arccos, it’s easy. All you have to do is hook up the system to your clubs and you’ll have shot-by-shot data to show you where you need to improve.

If you want quality, at-home practice, you need a good mat to hit off. Look no further than the Tri Turf from Rukket Sports. This portable mat comes with turf emulating both the fairway and the rough, so you can practice every type of shot you’ll need on the course.
