Top 5 Best Short Game Practice Equipment, 2022 Edition


As of January 2022, here are the top 5 most effective short game practice equipment!

No. 5 The Rail

The Rail was taught to me by a college student who is serious about becoming a tour pro in Japan.

He told me that if I could stroke the ball over the rail without dropping it, my anxiety about short putts would disappear.

When I actually tried it, it was difficult to stroke the ball without dropping it at first, but as I got used to it, my anxiety about short putts disappeared.

I also like the fact that I can easily set it up at home, and by checking the position of my face on The Rail, I can correct the proper distance to the ball.

No. 4 Alignment Stick

The well-known alignment stick is often used by professionals.

In my case, I use a stick about 20cm wide and parallel to the ground to practice the image of taking the club head straight up and following it straight up.

There are a variety of sticks on the market, but I prefer the ones with horizontal lines.

If it doesn’t have a horizontal line, it’s hard to know where the head should go.


This is the stick I’m using. The horizontal lines make it easy to match.

No. 3 EX Putt

It’s a little expensive, but there’s no harm in buying it.

I think amateur golfers are lacking in putting practice by far, and this is the best practice tool for practicing the basic skills of putting: direction and distance.

You can practice without losing track of time.

No. 2 Smartphone App “KiZuKi”

There are many golf swing diagnosis apps out there, but this KiZuKi is outstanding.

You can draw your own lines to check the position of your hands, head and hips, and whether your swing plane is off.

Other apps include diagnostic functions for nothing, but I don’t need that.

It’s simple and easy to use.

I also like that it’s free.

No. 1: Swing Plate

I was able to correct my center of weight shift by standing vertically on the outside of my left hip and sliding my hip against the stick.

By hitting my right hip at address, I was able to correct my hips from moving forward.
It is the best corrective tool, such as

In addition

By placing it behind the ball line, you can correct the slice caused by the club entering from the outside.
I also used to use it a while ago for things like

The most important thing is to be aware of this virtual stick, so that you can reproduce it in the round.

This is the first time I’ve ever used a swing correction equipment.
