I've seen — and tried — scores of training aids over the years. A few deliver on their promise while too many others are a waste of your time and money. A new gizmo, the Ernie Els Training System by Rockroller, is definitely worth a try. The best part is you can hit shots while using each one of the three devices — Stimpdimple, Rockroller and Tempotimer.

The Stimpdimple ($10) slides easily onto your putter shaft. Go ahead and stroke some putts after placing a ball in its "dimple," or cavity. You'll find that Stimpdimple helps to build tempo during the stroke. It also forces you to make a more assertive stroke, so you follow through with authority. Stimpdimple can definitely help those who struggle with the flat stick and can serve as a helpful reminder for folks who already putt well.
