One of the major benefits of having an indoor golf simulator is that you can work on your game, particularly your golf swing, from home.
The fact is, most of the top PGA Tour Players now have a golf simulator at home. Yes, these are the most advanced models, and cost upwards of $50,000. However, you can set up a simulator at home from scratch for as little as about $1,600. This would include a simulator with software, stance mat, net, computer and a nice TV to view the action.
That type of set up will at least get you to see your general ball flight. If you’ve previously received instruction and a video analysis of your swing, then you should understand your critical swing error that leads to your ball flight issue. So clearly, your first step toward improvement is a golf lesson that includes detailed analysis of your golf swing. When you understand your swing path and clubface angle, along with your primary swing error, you can then make the corrections needed to correct the error.
This is a common type of analysis you will see with the software that comes with a golf simulator. The more advanced your simulator set up is, the more information you will get with each swing.
Hopefully, with the golf instruction you receive, you can learn how to get the swing feel you need to make the improvements you want.
One great way to practice the swing correction prescribed by your instructor is to practice the swing correction you need to make in front of a mirror. It would be helpful to have a mirror in close proximity to your golf simulator. You can then practice the move repetitively in front of the mirror, and then move right over to hit a shot on the simulator. The feedback you get from the simulator will then tell you if you are making improvement.
An Awesome Indoor Golf Set Up
The ultimate home training set up at home is one that combines a golf simulator along with two video cameras to view your swing from the side and down the line, swing analysis software and mirrors. If you have the proper knowledge, and have these tools available, you’ll be able to make the improvements to your swing much more quickly than you could ever imagine.
The bottom line is that we have so many more tools available to us to improve our game. To stay competitive in an ever increasing competitive professional tour, many of the best players are installing golf simulators at home. For those of us who aren’t pulling down a million dollars each year playing golf on tour, there are affordable options to imitate what the pros are doing at home.
