Golf gadgets to help you play better and enjoy the game more.
Golfers love gadgets. From kludgey gizmos that promise to fix your hook (or slice) off the tee, or your chipping, or your putting, to devices that help you practice more efficiently or learn more from your practice/playing time, there are plenty of clever devices out there that just might be your ticket to a lower handicap.
Remember that scene in Tin Cup when Dr. Molly Griswold (Rene Russo) shows up at the driving range owned by Roy “Tin Cup” McAvoy (Kevin Costner) for her first golf lesson with a bag full of goofy golf training aids? (“I ordered all this from The Golf Channel.”) Well, it isn’t like that anymore (well, not necessarily…), and the modern-day golf gadgeteer is more

The green laser for alignment is a simple enough concept, but the really clever part is the red laser for distance. Adjusting its position allows you to practice a consistent length of backswing as a means of controlling distance. Laser Putt retails for $169.90.
Zepp Golf Swing Analysis
The Zepp Golf swing analyzer is an example of the amazing kind of high-tech devices that are out there for golfers these days. A lightweight (6.25 grams) electronic sensor that clips to the back of your glove, the Zepp Golf’s combination of 3-axis accelerometers and sophisticated analysis app (available for iPhone and Android) allow you evaluate your swing through measurement of club speed, club plane, hand plane, backswing position, tempo, and hip rotation.
It’s the sort of sophisticated motion measurement and analysis that was only available in full-featured (and expensive) golf training centers just a few years ago, and now you can own it and it fits in your golf bag. The Zepp Golf Kit, which includes the Zepp 2 sensor, golf mount, and USB charger, retails for $149.99.

The device fits into the cup on the putting green, and a circular bubble level in the center indicates the slope at the cup. Aligning the bubble with one of the crosshairs marked on the device sets the fall line at the hole, allowing you to place markers indicating slope positions in order to practice reading and accounting for the break around the hole on mid-length putts. At $19.95, the ClockWorx HSI will set you back less than the cost of a dozen premium golf balls.
The Swing Jacket
The analysis and development behind the Swing Jacket was anything but low-tech. This sophisticated training aid is the result of biometric analysis of the motions experienced by the arms and torso during a “correct” golf swing, and strapping it on allows you to practice the correct “feels” and , with repetition, build that repeatable, on-plane swing that will allow you to hit consistently good golf shots. The SwingJacket Bundle, which includes the SwingJacket and carrying case, two training DVDs, and the TourStop Technology enhancement feature for the SwingJacket can be purchased through their website for $147.95.
