I’m not a beach person. Not in my golf life or in my actual everyday life. In actual life, I have two colors to my skin…red and white. I just can’t get a good tan. I guess it’s the bit of Irish in me. Somehow it overpowers the Italian when it comes to skin tone. So going to the beach is normally not a great experience for me. And, it’s pretty much the same in my golf game.
I am not a beach person out on the course either. My all-around golf game is not very good. But the trap? Brutal. By far the worst part of my game. If you can suffer through this painful two minutes, here’s a bit of proof.
I used to look at being in the trap as improvement in my game. My rationale was the placement of the traps. They are there to protect the green. So if I’m landing in them on approaches, then I’m getting closer to landing on the dance floor. But those days are gone. Now, they are the enemy of all that means anything to me.
Now we here at GolfStinks are not ones for golf training aids reviews. As a matter of fact, this is what we normally do with them. But could one of these things actually help me? What about something like the Up & Down Golfer? It seems simple and logical enough. There is, of course, practice…but who has the time?
So just because we don’t take our games all that serious, and we don’t give much merit to most training aids, that doesn’t mean that others don’t. So what’s the worst part of everyone else’s game? And do you use, or have you used, any training aids? Did they help? Let us know, because if one of these things actually works like it promises, then maybe we’ll even do something serious…, or…maybe not.
Swing ’til you’re happy!
