Every golfer has seen an impact bag, and most of have probably trained with one. There’s no question that it works. What I’ve found in my teaching, however, is that a volleyball is a much better and cheaper golf training aid. It offers several additional benefits:

  • It can test your grip.
  • It can improve your driving.
  • It can increase your smash factor (substantially).
  • It can improve your ability to find the target and visualize trajectory.
  • It can improve your ability to predict contact and distance to ball.

It’s just amazing how a $10 training aid that you can buy at any sporting good store can do so much for your golf game. Watch the video to see how and why I use a volleyball to help golfers improve their game.

    13 minute video. Yikes! Way too long. Need to keep it under 3 max if most folks (not all) are going to watch it.

    IMO

      Some people have longer attention spans than 3 minutes unless you’re talking about children.

        Yes, I was referring to the under 13 crowd. Sorry, should have made that clear. Thanks for your reply.

    I don’t have an impact bag and I don’t want one. I’ve been golfing for forty years and have a solid handicap – so I think I’m a golfer.
