Best putting training aids of 2022: 9 devices to help you roll it pure on the greens
By: Zephyr Melton

Weather might limit the amount of time you can play over the next few months, but that doesn’t mean your game has to suffer. Instead, you can use the offseason to get in some quality practice and fine-tune your swing for the season ahead.

The best way to do that is by investing in some quality training aids. It can be frustrating to make a swing change during the season, but now that things have slowed down, it’s the perfect time to buy a training aid and iron out the kinks in your swing before spring.

Below, we’ve highlighted some of our favorites from this year, and ones that we think can improve your swing for the upcoming season. Keep reading to check them out, or head on over to GOLF.com’s Pro Shop for even more options.

Pressure Plate

Shifting your pressure during the swing can be a difficult task, but this training aid makes it a little bit easier. All you need to do is throw it on the ground and stand on it while hitting balls to get the proper feel for pressure shift during your swing.

Power SwingFan

Need some extra power in your swing? Check out the Power SwingFan. This aid uses air resistance as you swing through impact to help you build up swing speed. One offseason with this and you’ll be dropping bombs like Bryson.

Power SwingFan

$129.99
The Power SwingFan is one of the easiest and most effective products for increasing distance and control available anywhere because it produces maximum resistance at impact. Pick up this golf swing fan trainer and you’ll be on your way to a better swing technique, longer drives & lower scores.   The Power SwingFan works using air resistance. The four-finned design produces maximum resistance right as you swing through impact. Unlike weighted clubs – YOU do the work!   Because the Power SwingFan golf swing speed resistance trainer stands up by itself, it is much more likely to be used than stuck in a closet. It looks so inviting when you see it that it begs to be swung. Regarding how much, how hard and how often, think of it just like lifting weights. Swing it to exhaustion every couple of days. Since this golf swing power trainer has the benefit of increasing strength, you want to break down your muscles and allow them to rebuild. You can swing very aggressively and a typical workout routine might be to start with 2 sets of 25 reps swinging at about 70% effort. After a week build to 3 sets of 30 reps and you can start firing harder through impact. We also suggest swinging left handed for a set so you don’t overbuild one side of your body.   The Power SwingFan has two primary sizes men’s and ladies (junior available too) with the ladies fins being a little narrower. The ladies’ model is suitable for anyone over 5 feet tall and provides is used by some men who want more speed training than strength training.
