Ball-First Trainer promotes proper contact

If the premise holds that with training aids simple is better, SKLZ has introduced one that ought to promote a variety of good swing habits.

The Ball-First Trainer could not be easier to use; just set it down and place a ball in the middle of it. It frames the impact area and was designed to help the golfer hit down and through, striking the ball first, followed by a divot.

It also has markings that help with club alignment and can also promote a proper takeaway. It is made of an impact-resistant, flexible material. For the left-hander, just flip it over.

Here's a brief video demonstrating how it works. It can be purchased here for $19.99.
