Winter Golf: Making the Most Of the Season
While many golfers may choose to hang up the golf clubs, and push golf out of their minds for a few months during the winter season, others use the time to continue to improve there game. No, this does not mean they are out on the course or driving range in sub freezing temperatures. Rather they are at home or in the gym working on getting stronger with various strength training exercises, and developing more flexibility with routine stretching that targets key golf movements.
Developing a solid winter workout training plan can really help get you off on the right foot when spring rolls around and you head back out to the course. The winter months can also be a good time to work on any major swing changes. This can be accomplished in just about any room in your house that permits a full golf swing, and there are more and more indoor driving ranges becoming available.
To get the most out of your winter golf season, I would recommend spending at least one day a month at an indoor golf facility hitting balls, and working on your short game/putting. This, in addition to keeping yourself physically fit and improving flexibility, will have you ready for warmer weather when you can get back out on the course.
