As far as homemade golf training aids are concerned, I’m just not convinced with these parachute balls, but I’ve added this video in here in case you want to give it a go yourself as part of your golf training program. You might just find yourself waiting for these balls to become detached from their parachutes, anyway that’s how it affects me. Might even be a better idea when using these golf training aids, to drive them into a golf cage or a driving net.
As someone has already commented below the video, you can’t really tell if your hooking or slicing. Benefits could be, your swing takeaway, downswing practice, hitting through the ball and follow on to a proper finish.
Sorry that they don’t explain how to make these, although it shouldn’t be to difficult. Holes drilled through the balls while they are being held in a vice and then attaching eyelets. The chords secured to the eyelets (preferably nylon for strength) might be one way to make them.
Not to sure how the neighbors are going to take it when they see you teeing up the balls while facing their windows and with a driver in your hand.
Homemade Golf Training Aids
As the popularity of the belly putter continues to grow, it’s not surprising therefore that homemade versions are also becoming more used. This article will explain how you to, could make your own belly putter fairly easy and go on to improve your putting.
With a growing number of professional golfers now using a belly putter, more recreational golfers are interested in the longer putter. This drill uses a homemade training aid to replicate a belly putter-type of putting stroke. It creates a fulcrum point at your belly to maintain the necessary connection and produce a proper arcing path to the ball.
Here’s my tip:
To build the training aid shown in the photo (click on photo for the large view), purchase a metal rod that is 30-inches long and is 3/16-inch round. Drill a hole three-quarters into the center of a golf ball with your 3/16-inch drill bit. Then put crazy glue into the hole and push the metal rod into the golf ball. Please make sure to wear protective ear and eyewear when doing this, and properly secure the golf ball before drilling, because it can be dangerous. Once the rod sets in the golf ball for about 30 minutes, it will be ready to go.
