Favorite Putting Aid - Wellstroke

The golf training aids on this page gave me the biggest impact the fastest… and they’ll do the same for you.

How do I know… I’ve got two closets full of golf training aids that do the job they say they will do and deliver good value.

But, there are only a few that make it to this page. The training aids included here are the ones I use at least a few times a week, if not every day. Thus “Favorites“. 

Email me at jamie@golfergeeks.com if you buy any or all of them, and you don’t find tremendous value in them. 

I’ll start with putting since every stroke saved there comes right off your score.

I expected the Wellstroke would help me make better contact more consistently. I did not expect it would improve my touch and my technique to the extent it has. 

  • The amplitude lines help you dial in distance control
  • The tee gates and graphics teach you to putt on a much tighter arc (less sloppy = better contact)
    • These two features will make you a ton more consistent

I use it every day. Buy it and use it, and you will score better. I guarantee pinky-promise it

The Tour Strike PlaneMate is the best golf swing trainer for every part of your golf swing.

If you’re going to get one – and only one – training aid to improve your golf swing – This is the One. 

It’s my #1 recommended golf swing training aid if you are a beginner or need help nailing the fundamentals of the golf swing.

You also get over 30 instruction videos from Martin Chuck – worth the price alone.

Do yourself a favor and get your hands on one. You won’t regret it unless you don’t use it. Beware, it’s physically taxing and challenging. Nothing you can’t handle, and it’s worth it.

I’ve used the DUB to make my swing much more efficient. My lower body is more stable, I sway less off the ball, and I get down and through impact faster with less effort. I think of it as “tightening” my swing.

This all means More power with Less effort.

I look at tour pros and wonder at how little if any, wasted movement there is in their golf swing.

I want that or something close, and the DownUnder board helps me get just a little closer. (Emphasis on “little”)

It may seem a little expensive for two pieces of plastic, but you’re paying for the thought that went into it and, more importantly, for results. It’s an absolute bargain when you think of it this way.
