Winter is the toughest season for golfers because it seems like it will be forever until warmer weather will get here! So how can a golfer still work on their golf game during the colder months so they can hit the ground running in the spring? Here are a few ideas.
First, a great way to prepare your body for next golfing season is to develop a home stretching and flexibility stretch. This can include arm, shoulder, back and hip stretches. The more range of motion you have, the more you’ll be able to gain more momentum and torque throughout your swing, which will in turn increase the distance of your shots.
Another option for keeping your golf game up to par (you know what I mean!) during the off-season is to visit an indoor practice facility. With the incredible leaps forward in technology, you can now visit any golf academy and they will likely have an outstanding simulator you can use while it’s cold outside. Jim White, the PGA Tour pro I teamed up with this last summer for the Extreme Golf Makeover, offers just this type of environment at the Firethorn West 9 Golf Course.
If a golf simulator isn’t really your thing, most indoor golf academies also offer opportunities to do outdoor hitting while standing underneath heat lamps.
The key point to realize in all of this, is actually doing something to work on your golf game to make sure you’re in peak performance once warmer weather comes!
