2017 Golf Training Aids, Mats & Nets

Consistency is the key to success, but many social golfers do not have enough time in their schedules to train during the week, so there isn’t not a lot of opportunity to hone their skills in preparation for a round at the weekend.

That’s where training aids come into play. Made up of alignment aids, mats and nets, players are able to get a few spare minutes to practice their game while in the comfort of their own home.

This buying guide offer hints and tips for gaining valuable experience on the golf course by using training aids, mats and nets, while also offering a great range of the best products available today to give everyone’s game a boost.


Long game

Golfers who are looking for improvements or tweaks to their long game should consider setting up a full-size practice net in their garden (or a smaller practice net in their home). In this day and age, there simply is not enough hours in the day to head to the driving range, so this is a great way to bring the driving range to you – and it is far better value, too.

There is a great range of practice nets on the market right now, including some of the best long-game nets which have been tried and tested to a high standard by in-store PGA Pros. Some of the best quality practice nets include the SKLZ Quickster Chipping Net, PGA Tour Pro Driving Net, Links Choice Practice Net, Masters Golf Pop Up Chipping Practice Net and SKLZ Practice Net.


Short Game

Working on short game, chipping nets are highly recommended. For use both indoors and outside, a chipping net is essential for a better game as it allows golfers to learn the basics of getting the golf ball into the air, and landing it soft and true at the designated target.

To avoid any unforeseen accidents while chipping golf balls in the house, try investing in airflow golf balls, which are specially designed for playing indoors. There’s some good options out there to choose from, including the Masters Golf Airflow Practice Balls, Masters Golf 30% Practice Balls, PGA Tour 36 Practice Balls and Masters Golf Practice Foam Practice Balls.

By adding a chipping net, such as the Masters Golf Pop Up Chipping Practice Net and SKLZ Quickster Chipping Net to your training gear, the level at which you develop particular skills with the golf ball can be drastically improved – and will also help reduce the risk of hitting a dreaded fat or thin slice shot when you play for real.


Putting

The putter is the most used golf club in the bag, so it stands to reason that it should also be the club golfers are best at using. However, be that as it may, it is in fact still the least practiced area of a golfers’ game.
