If you have spent a lot of time working on your distance accuracy at the driving range, you’d be doing yourself a disservice by not properly carrying this training over to the course with a good rangefinder; and the Bushnell Tour V3 is among the very best. Take the guess work out of approaching the green and selecting your club by seeing the exact yardage to your target with the push of a button. Though it is the world’s smallest range finder, it does not sacrifice features. The Bushnell Tour V3 houses laser accuracy, a vivid LCD screen, and vibrates when it meets its target. The quality and value of this product was recognized by the PGA, who named it one of the best golf gadgets of 2015.
The Golf Swing Shirt is a simple but effective tool in training yourself to have proper form and hit the ball with greater consistency. Its snug fit trains your arms to form a unified triangle to create a motion that makes full use of your core muscles. This functions in creating a feeling of being fully connected with your club as if your chest, shoulders and club were one single unit. You may feel a little silly putting this on for the first time at the driving range but that feeling will quickly disappear once you start smacking balls farther and more accurately than you ever have before.
Nothing can put a damper on a nice day of golf like unseasonably cold weather. Sure, many of us wouldn’t mind so much if we didn’t have our game brought down a peg due to being bundled up in a big jacket. That’s where Nike Thermafit Golf Sleeves come in. Slip these tight-fitting sleeves all the way up your arm so you can keep all of your limbs warm without sacrificing range of motion. And if things warm up, just slip them off and stuff them in your golf bag. It beats lugging a heavy coat around the course.
Have you hit a figurative wall with your swings? You keep practicing but you aren’t getting better? The Golf Sense 3D Golf Swing Analyzer might be able to help. This nifty little device attaches to any golf glove and uses motion capture sensors to record every detail about your swing from the backswing to the follow-through. It sends the information to an accompanying smartphone app which enables you to see every detail of your performance in a 3d space. Now you can begin to identify trouble spots in your swing from a perspective you never had before. You can even set a ‘SwingScore’ and benchmark yourself against your best swings or a coach’s swings. With this piece of golf tech in your arsenal, you shouldn’t have any trouble reaching that next level with your swing.
The Bionic StableGrip Golf Gloves may be the most luxurious and advanced golf gloves available today. What sets these gloves apart from the rest is their unique system of pads which are positioned in such a way so as to prevent the club from rotating at the moment of impact. There is also special material between the knuckles and under the joints to keep these areas cool and maintain the hand’s flexibility. Extra padding at the palm has been placed to prevent discomfort in the area. With all of the steps taken to make these gloves comfortable and ergonomically sound, you would think they were invented by an orthopedic hand surgeon. Oh wait… they were.
