There is a very good reason no teaching pro uses a training aid.
The golf swing is about solid fundamentals of grip, setup, takeaway to reach a good top position. PERIOD!
But get to a correct top position and you will swing it down on plane and hit it as far as anyone your age can.
Every good teacher has you "take it up and stop," so he can show you where you should be. There is no training aid that gets you there. A live teacher helps you memorize that position and makes you memorize how you got there. Then if you are diligent, you go to the range and work to ingrain that. It really isn't rocket science.
But 99% of amateurs never reach anything like a correct top position. They struggle and invent compensations and play "soldier golf" by hitting it sideways from OB fence to deep rough, find it, hit it again, and finally get it up and in.
