How to save your golf game over winter
Oct 30, 2017
There is no shying away from the fact that winter is just about here, and unfortunately for us golfers; if we don’t use it, we lose it. Winter is arguably the most important season of all. If we take a few months off, don't be surprised if you have to start from 'scratch' again when April comes around!
Following the sun like the best players in the world do is the perfect way to maintain your game. However this is not an option for the majority of us. We’ve put together some other ways to save the game this winter.
Hit the gym
Getting stronger over the winter can help with power and balance, allowing for stronger, harder hits. Make sure to focus on strengthening glutes and core!
Visit the range
Use the winter months to help develop your golfing skills. Identify your strengths and weaknesses and work at both. When you next visit, why not try our PGA Pro Rich Pace's '30 ball practice' for a bit of variety.
Develop some speed
No golfer would EVER say no to hitting the ball a little further. You can do this by 'Overtraining' your speed. If you use steel shafted irons, try swinging a Lighter Graphite Shafted club. The lighter shaft will help you develop speed within your normal range of motion. Make a few practice swings with this, then move back to your own club. Regular practice doing this can help develop speed ready for next season.
Take up Pilates
Pilates helps with mobility and core stability. Not only does this protect the spine from injuries, but can also improve your range of motion meaning more free flowing swings
