The holidays are here, and it’s definitely the off season for golf. But there’s no reason that you have to let your golf game slack, just because you can’t get out on the golf course. If you’re planning to spend loads of time fantasizing about the beginning of golf season in the spring, you’ll have plenty of time to do a few exercises to ensure that you’re ready when the snow melts.
Easy Golf Tips
If you have a local golf range, visit it. It can be out of sight and out of mind, but when the golf courses are covered in snow and your remote control golf caddy is stored away for the winter, you can still head out to your local golf range. Get out and get your golf muscles working, and taking swings. If you stop doing something for too long, your muscles may have a harder time in the spring, so keep them moving throughout the winter.
If you have the space, try setting up some putting on your carpet. Consider that the friction of your home carpet, and the friction of the fairway can really be similar.
This next tip is an easy one: watch golf. If you’re keeping yourself in the mindset of golf, you’ll get back into it that much easier in the spring.
New Golf Tips
If golf is your only sport, and you don’t participate in any cold weather sports, it may benefit you to hit the gym. Try hitting the weights to keep your golf muscles in the same shape year-round.
If you’re looking for a nice low-impact workout, that can help your golf game, try some yoga or Pilates. Yoga can really help improve your flexibility which can only help your swing come spring.
Use your floor length mirror. If you try practicing your swings in the mirror or even on video, you might see things you’re doing that you weren’t previously aware of. Take a look at your form, and work on it in the mirror. Memorize how any small adjustments to your swing feel, and make improvements. Try using weighted clubs to help your swing even more.
If you keep up your practice throughout the winter, you’ll be that much more prepared for golfing in the spring. So spend time working on these techniques, and come spring you’ll be ready to hit the course with your electric golf trolley.
