Refine your technique
Unless you have a fearless volunteer at the driving range to replace your ball, it can be quite a faff breaking your stance to do it yourself. So while we look for a robot caddy, why not hone your swing on the SKLZ Smash Bag
Whether you’re at the Golf Club or in your back garden, this heavy-duty bag helps to refine your technique
and improve speed and accuracy
. Place it just beyond your usual strike point and take a swing. An extremely satisfying ‘thwap’ will tell you if you’ve struck the bag correctly. But the resting position of the bag is also a handy indicator – if it ends up left or right of your position you’re slicing it!
Fill with towels or clothes
Endorsed by all sorts of PGA types from Todd Fischer to Jim McGovern
, this portable practice solution is a great way to improve your shots. And you don’t have to wander round picking up your balls afterwards.
