Tom’s Favorite Training Aids!
Below find my all time favorite teaching aids. I feel they in fact do what that claim. They produce either a feel or a structure where you need it relative to your own personal swing issues. These aids I have found most helpful for the student to practice with building great and in fact correct habits.

|If you want to lower scores, you must do it with the club you hit 43% of your shots with. Putting lab results show that your aim or face angle is 4 times more important than your stroke path. Results also indicate that the average golfer can not line up a 6 ft putt. The average golfer does not set up correctly, aim correctly, or practice correctly. The patented sight-line technology in the dead aim putter will not only get your eyes over the aim line every time (by matching the top line to the bottom line), it will also give you immediate feedback as to whether your hands and body are in the correct position by keeping the dot in the dead center.
