Beginning golfers are always surprised at how tough it is to swing that
little club just right. The pros make it look so easy! Likewise, avid
golfers are constantly looking to improve something in their golf game,
from a bad hook to a vicious slice, to more distance. All of these
things come down to one thing - a better golf swing. So how you do you
go about improving your golf swing? The answer is golf swing training
aids. These are devices that are designed to help to improve your golf
So how do you know which of the swing fault you have? Well, if you can afford it, get a golf instructor to analyze your golf swing and identify your fault; although having someone tell you what you are doing wrong, then showing you what to do to correct it, should work for you most of the time. Or, at least you will know what your fault is and therefore make a more informed buying decision of a golf teaching aid. Another possibility for identifying your swing fault is to video tape yourself. By watching a replay, especially in slow motion, you should be able to spot your swing fault; if not, maybe a golfing buddy that is more experienced than you can watch the video and tell you where you are going wrong.
After identifying your swing fault you will then know what type of golf teaching aid you need to correct it. I have found on the internet that the teaching aids are conveniently categorized into a wide choice of golf swing training aids: full swing aids, swing plane aids, swing tempo aids, swing alignment aids, balance aids, grip aids, impact position aids, fitness training aids, and weight transfer aids. Some of these aids overlap in different categories - in other words, one type of swing aid might correct two or three different problems. Below is brief information of what is available in the golf swing training aids market:

Hinged clubs -
To start a weighted club enables a golfer to accomplish or practice two different aspects of their golf swing at the same time. The evenly weighted shafts generate momentum along the correct swing plane causes the club to swing along a balanced and proper swing plane. The Momentus Swing Trainer is a patented weighted training aid used by over 50 players on the PGA Tour. The evenly weighted shaft of the new Momentus Driver Trainer and Momentus Iron Trainer builds muscle memory through repetitions for the correct-on-plane swing. Just 10-15 swings per day will have you hitting straighter and more consistent shots.
Another use of lasers is to attach one or two to the shaft of your
driver so that you can see the path and angle of your swing. If that is
combined with a laser graphic mat, then you can follow your club path
and adjust appropriately so that you are swinging in the optimum
inclined plane configuration and directly at the target. There is a
whole host of different types of laser trainer on the market, ranging in
price from a few dollars upwards, though the vast majority are under
$100. Examples are the Butch Harmon, Greenhawk and Smart Stick laser
Power Hitter Swing Trainer -
Putting trainers of various designs are popular in helping to resolve problems with your alignment and putting action. Some have a hole in the putter from top to bottom, into which you can place your golf ball. You then swing the putter gently backwards and forwards without releasing the ball. This helps you to develop a smooth and gentle putting action, because any jerkiness would cause the ball to be released from the hole.
Once you have developed this ability, then you can practice releasing
the ball. If your putting action and follow through are correct, the
ball will be released on the follow through and run on to the hole. If
you are slowing down instead of following through with your putter, the
golf ball will stop dead rather than continue on into the cup. Bad
putters tend to decelerate their stroke after hitting the ball, and this
type of trainer will put it right. An example of this type of putting
trainer is the Zen Oracle. Some other popular laser putting training
