5 Instant Golf Improvers

Golf hurts, but we have ways of making you better. 

1.The irons

Constantly blaming your clubs? Mizuno’s Swing DNA “shaft optimiser” system promises to identify your individual swing characteristics and tailor your irons
to you, so no more excuses. £50 per appointment. Mizuno MP-59 irons, (£120 per club, mizuno.eu)

2. The Accessory

In a mental game like golf, looking like you know what you’re doing is half the battle. Nothing says you mean business more than pulling out this Dunhill ball marker and pitch mark repairer (snugly housed in a branded leather pouch). (£100, dunhill.com)

3.The putter

Before spending £200 on another hi-tech driver, remember that in an average round you’ll hit three times as many shots with your putter. Odyssey’s new Metal-X range has been developed using feedback from tour pros for instant “feel”. (£129, odysseygolf.com)

4.The Apps

Practice your putting in the living room with the iPing, which analyses your stroke using your iPhone (app is free, the iPhone cradle is £25). Pocket Pro (£2.99) offers quick expert on-course advice for emergency shots — perfect for the occasional golfer.

5. The Membership

The only way to improve is regular practice, which is where Urban Golf’s new ultra-realistic simulators come into their own. Offering pro-level analysis on ball flight and launch angle, members can hone their ball striking in their lunch hour. World No 1 Luke Donald’s got one in his house. Enough said. Membership from £79 a month, urbangolf.com
