Best golf equipment you can use at home
Improve your game with a simulator, putting mat or practice net
Golfers have been left in the rough during the past 12 months with their favourite courses closed because of the Covid-19 pandemic.
However, many players have found a way to improve their game by purchasing equipment to use at home. Including a simulator, putting mat and practice net, we pick out some of the best golf training kit on the market.
Foresight Sports Europe
GCQuad Home Golf Simulator With Golf Ball Data
Named best golf simulator by Golf Monthly magazine, the stunning Performance Simulator from Foresight Sports Europe takes players into the realm of real-time projected simulation, gaming and home cinema. Designed to be used in any available space of the correct size – from a garage to a spare room – the Performance Simulator is ideal for those wanting to enjoy the ultimate practice, analysis, and indoor golf experience in their home. Easily self-assembled in around 60-90 minutes straight out of the box, the sim features range practice to course gameplay and can be customised to meet specific requirements.
Perfect Putting Mat
Endorsed by reigning world No.1 Dustin Johnson and used by more than 100 professional golfers, the Perfect Putting Mat promises to help players “make more putts” and “improve your game fast”. “If you have space for it at home - and the floorboards aren’t too wonkey - the Perfect Practice Putting Mat is a great training aid that will help hone your stroke,” says Golf Monthly’s Neil Tappin. Bill Bush of Driving Range Heroes asks: “Is there a hotter product in golf right now? The Perfect Practice mat is definitely worth your consideration… if you can get your hands on one.”
Pop-Up Triangle Practice Net
Work on your golf shots without leaving your garden or the house with this practice net triangle by Pure2Improve. According to the manufacturer the golf net is produced from extra-strong fibreglass for the best pitches and chips training and it can be also easily folded into the supplied compact nylon bag for storage and transport.
PGA Tour Perfect Touch Practice Net
With a three net target design, this practice net is perfect for improving your chipping and can be used indoors or outdoors. It has an instant pop-up design which folds away in seconds and comes with a free PGA Tour training DVD. Before you know it your short game will be as good as Phil Mickelson’s… hopefully.
Eyeline Golf Speed Trap 2.0
“The EyeLine Golf Speed Trap 2.0 is one of those training aids that might turn you off at first glance,” says Best Golf Accessories. “However, this is one of our favourite training aids of the year. This golf training aid can help straighten out your slice, teach you how to hit a draw or just hit the dang ball straighter.”
