Fortunately, Golf Digest resident swing nerds Drew Powell and Luke Kerr-Dineen did the tough, tough work of trying a variety of innovative new game-improvement products. Here are their favorites from the show. Though this is far from an exhaustive list of all the gadgets and tech that will improve your game, these were some of our favorites.
Tour players have become increasingly obsessed with tech-based health and fitness solutions in recent years. Katalyst is a fascinating new addition to this innovative and growing space. Don't be surprised to see golfers everywhere flock to it soon. The company uses Electro Muscle Stimulation (or EMS) via a small suit that golfers wear as they work out. The EMS tech stimulates each muscles evenly as you work out, which prevents imbalances and potential injuries. And because you're hitting all your muscles are being worked in a more targeted fashion, the workouts are more efficent—and quicker. Katalyst says its new golf-specific line of workouts have shown an increase in accuracy by four percent and speed by a minimum of five mph.
