Training Aids 2008
Bonfit Sport | Stroke Saver/Accuracy | $39.95
Description: Popular in South Africa, QOLF is a cross between golf and croquet that offers a fast paced, fun and easy-to-learn alternative to the links. QOLF comes with three color-coded arches (orange, blue and red) that are utilized as frames. The objective of the game is for each participant—utilizing a golf pitching wedge—to hit a specially designed plastic QOLFball through each of the frame arches within a minimum amount of strokes. Players can earn bonus points by hitting the ball through a specially designed target hole above the frame arch.
Special Features: QOLF provides a test of accuracy, touch and skill, which makes it an ideal tool for short game training. Golfers can hone their chipping skills and hand-eye coordination, whether in the backyard or indoors. QOLF is also an ideal way to introduce children and newcomers to the game of golf.

Golf Around the World, Inc. | Full Swing | $59.95
Description: One of the easiest and most effective products for increasing distance and control on the market today. Simply pick the PowerSwing up and swing it 20-30 times a day, and you’ll be on your way to better technique, longer drives and lower scores.
Special Features: There’s no wrong way to use the PowerSwing. The fins discourage casting. You’ll learn to drop the club into “the slot”, a position that allows an inside-to-square approach to the ball. The harder you swing the PowerSwing, the more air resistance you’ll feel. Dynamic resistance is what builds your hands, wrists, forearms and rotary muscles, and will help you power the ball past your friends–guaranteed!

The Z Factor Perfect Putting Machine
Z Factor Sports, LLC | Putting/Consistency | $389.95
Description: The Z Factor Perfect Putting Machine dictates perfect path, face angle and pendulum swing during a putting stroke. The Perfect Putting Machine is adjustable between square-to-square and four arcing strokes. In addition, the system allows the user to create a consistent stance, ball position and rhythm.
Special Features: This is the putting trainer you have seen on PGA Tour telecasts! The Perfect Putting Machine’s patented design allows for a user to find the putting stroke that is right for him or her and practice it consistently. The Perfect Putting Machine works great indoors or on a putting green, and the user can actually stroke putts using his or her own putter. Best of all, it does not require the user to apply heel or toe pressure against an inclined or curved surface as other training aids do. Such pressure can actually cause improper muscle memory. The Perfect Putting Machine has been purchased by more than fifty players on the PGA Tour.
