The Tour Aim is a versatile training aid focused on alignment.  Useful for all aspects of the game.  Tremendous value.  A must-own for serious golfers.

Introduction

Good aim is one of the indisputable fundamentals of a successful golf swing.  That’s why every year we see numerous training aids at the PGA Show claiming to be the key to good aim.  Most are nothing more than fancy alignment sticks, but the Tour Aim caught my eye as something more.  After naming it one of the most interesting things I saw at the Show [read more HERE], I got one to test for myself.

Set Up & Ease of Use

When I unboxed my Tour Aim, I found the device and four white alignment sticks.  There’s a card with a QR code leading to instructional content, but I think most seasoned golfers will find this trainer intuitive.

The Tour Aim is a plastic rectangle that measures approximately 14.5″ X 3.5″ X 0.5″.  Laid flat, it has five holes that run through it: one in the center, one on each edge, and a pair roughly 4.5″ from each side.  Additionally, there are five holes in the “face” labeled Driver, Fairway, 5I, 8I, and Wedge.  Stood on end, there are two holes at the bottom surrounding a semi-circular cutout and another hole centered above the cutout.

The included 45″ alignment sticks slide easily into all of the designated holes.  Other alignment sticks that I own fit as well, though some were a tough fit on the hole above the putting cutout.  Setting up the Tour Aim for any of its various uses takes only a few seconds.

I did view the instructional videos [find them HERE] because I like to be thorough and wanted to make sure I wasn’t missing any functionality.  The videos are each two to five minutes long and feature instructor Kyle Morris.  Kyle has good energy on camera, but, in my opinion, he’s selling the Tour Aim more than teaching you how to use it.  This isn’t meant as an insult; it’s just a reflection of the fact that the Tour Aim requires little explanation.  That said, perhaps I’m being jaded: newer golfers may benefit from a clear explanation of the Tour Aim’s functions.

Effectiveness

There are several uses for the Tour Aim, but the essential one is creating a good practice station.  Slide an alignment stick through the center hole and point it at your target.  From there, you can put sticks in any of the other four holes to align your feet and provide further reference for aiming your club face.  Now you have a perfectly aligned station for hitting balls so you can focus on your swing.

This is better than using alignment sticks alone for several reasons.  First, the centered stick removes any questions about where you’re aimed or where to set your foot line.  As I discussed in my lesson on how to use alignment sticks [find it HERE], this process normally requires some guess-and-check.  The Tour Aim removes that.  Additionally, the Tour Aim gets your alignment sticks perfectly parallel and keeps them there.  Anyone who has used alignment sticks knows the frustration of accidentally nudging a stick (especially on mats) and needing to waste time fixing it.  That’s now a thing of the past.

Sticking with the full swing, the Tour Aim has five holes for creating different swing planes.  They range from 48 to 64 degrees, driver to wedge.  Swinging under or over these sticks in your backswing or follow through can be a very useful way to reshape your swing.  I also can’t overstate the value of the Tour Aim for helping you set up this drill consistently.    Finally, I’ll note that this is one of the functions that works indoors and outdoors.

Finally, seemingly as a throwaway feature, the Tour Aim becomes one of the best putting trainers I’ve used.  The functionality is very simple – set up two parallel sticks to stand the unit on edge and putt through the semi-circle.  You can also have an elevated stick to check that your eye position is consistent (above).

The hole is 2.25″ wide, which is a bit more than half the size of a traditional golf hole.  Depending on your putting skill, you may need to stay very close to the trainer to consistently roll the ball through.  I found that I was mostly successful at three feet when I was paying attention, but the gap is small enough that you won’t make many if you’re daydreaming.  As much as I love the Tour Aim for hitting balls, the putting trainer has become my favorite and most used feature.

Longevity

The Tour Aim Golf training aid checks a lot of boxes for longevity.  First, it’s small and light, meaning it can live in your golf bag.  Second, it has a lot of uses, and all of them set up quickly.  Finally, it’s versatile – you can use it on mats, on grass, indoors, and outdoors.  This is a trainer you can, should, and will use every time you practice.

Value

The Tour Aim retails for $95 with four alignment sticks or $75 without the alignment sticks.  You can also add an alignment stick head cover for an additional $30.  It’s offered with a 30 day money back guarantee and a one year warranty.

Additionally, every Tour Aim comes with a free online lesson, valued at $129.  While I’m a bit skeptical of both online lessons and “free” add-ons, I think this does add substantial value.  Learning your best use of the Tour Aim’s swing plane feature unlocks a higher level of functionality for this device.

The value here is sky high.  The base price of $75 is below average for a training aid, and this trainer’s versatility, effectiveness, and ease of use are well above average.

Conclusion

I think the Tour Aim is a must-own for golfers who are serious about practice and improvement.  This trainer has tremendous versatility in every sense of the word: it works on all aspects of your game in any environment.  Regardless of what part of your game you’re trying to tighten up, this device can help.

  1. Matt,
    I’m eager to see you conduct a review on the Prosendr training aid. More importantly, thank you for providing us with exceptional unbiased reviews.

      Macker,

      Thank you.
      I have looked at the Prosendr and am a little skeptical. It looks very similar to this trainer I reviewed several years ago: https://pluggedingolf.com/precision-impact-training-aid-review/

      Best,

      Matt

        Hi Matt,
        I purchased the precision impact trainer that you reviewed about 18 months ago. Fortunately after only a few range sessions with I managed to seller it on with only a little loss as it was expensive.
        I found it very uncomfortable to wear and the Velcro that wrapped around your finger ls was very poorly designed. There has been other variations of this type of training aid over the years, so we all know this isn’t a new concept. It’s just nobody has managed to construct it in a comfortable and usable way.
        That is until the pro sender came out. Being from the UK it worked out expensive what with shipping and import taxes. However it had been worth every penny. The build quality is first class, and finally they have made a wearable training aid that is actually comfortable to wear.
        This really is a game changer which actually is two training aids in one as there is the addition of the ball which helps keep your arms connected throughout the swing.
        This is basically based on the successful Tour striker ball training aid. For me the best thing about this product is that it helps keep your right hand in extension into impact then again at the end of your follow through. Yes this product actually works. After watching PGA Tours Pros on the range for years now. When you tend to see a few of them with a training aid and then see them still using it months and even years later. That is a good indication that what ever it is they are using is helping them and they are the best balls strikers in the world.
        So if it’s good enough for them there is a good chance it will be help us recreational Golfers.
        Matt keep up the good reviews,. You are well respected over here in the UK 👍
