Golf simulators have always been regarded as a form of entertainment tool, but with the advancement of technology, they have now become a professional training tool.
The advantages of golf simulators are that they can be used at any time, any place, any weather, and can provide instant feedback and analysis. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced golfer, golf simulators can help improve your skills.
However, despite the many advantages of golf simulators, they cannot completely replace on-site training. Simulators can provide data on hitting distance, flight trajectory, swing speed, etc., but they cannot simulate the real golf course environment, such as wind speed, humidity, terrain of the course, etc. Therefore, it is best to use golf simulators as one of your training tools, not the only one.
So, are golf simulators games or training tools? The answer depends on how you use it. If you just want to enjoy playing golf at home, then it is a game. If you want to improve your skills and are using the simulator to analyze your swing, then it is a training tool.
