Overcoming Winter Golfing Blues

Golf doesn’t end when the weather gets bad. Someone once told me that golf is like a marriage. You can’t expect good results if you only give it attention every few months. Golf is a ‘relationship’, you need to build on it every day.

During the winter breaks why not set yourself some off-course goals:

  • Increase your golf fitness – check out our pages for golf fitness exercises. The improved flexibility frees up your swing and reduces injuries. The increased physical fitness also helps your mental endurance and control.
  • Check back on some of the basics – like your grip and address. Check out these videos. You can save yourself thousands of dollars in golf lessons trying to overcome a problematic drive, when maybe just adjusting your grip is all that is needed.
  • Check your club head for alignment – the lines on the face of a club head, and the bottom curve can be deceptive.
  • Learn how to use your legs in the swing to improve your accuracy – get rid of hooks and slices
  • Learn how to put a pro spin on your pitches and chips – the ball will climb higher, stop faster, and give you precision shots from 120 yards out to within inches of the pin. All by fooling around in your living room with some plastic balls and a chipping net

No try telling me there is no golf in winter!!
