TIPS FOR WINTER GOLF

0 Comments

 

As the days get colder and the nights draw in, for many golfers this is the time to pack away the clubs, not to be seen again until the following year. However this doesn't have to be the case, winter golf can be the most rewarding and enjoyable.

Here are just a few pointers on how to keep your game up to scratch over these winter months and gain an advantage over your opponents...

  1. CARRY ON PLAYING
    It may sound obvious but momentum can be vital, especially in varying weather conditions whereby different shot types are often needed for optimal outcomes. This can only be a positive to take forward into the next golfing year.

  2. CORRECT EQUIPTMENT/CLOTHING
    Having the correct clothing and equipment is essential to feeling comfortable, giving you the best opportunity to play to the best of your ability. Thermal socks, wet weather gloves and golf towels are just some of the basics that are likely to make a difference. Most golfing brands will sell apparel with advanced technology which will have the same effect as regular winter clothing but will derestrict movement.

  3. DRIVING RANGE
    The driving range is a great way of keeping up practice routines. Make sure to be picking targets and varying shot types with different clubs to replicate in game scenarios.

  4. GOLF SIMULATORS
    Similar to the range, however there are more and more indoor simulators becoming readily available to keep practice up. Some with a wide range of course options around the world, equipped with moving matts to simulate dynamic lie, giving you that feeling of on-course authenticity.

  5. LESSONS
    The 'off-season' is the perfect time to seek extra tuition to progress your golf game. Whether it be on driving range or lessons on the course, a simple Google search of 'Golf lessons near me' will show the best options available to you, in order to push your game to the next level.

  6. WATCH AND READ
    You may be surprised how much there is to learn from videos on YouTube and various other platforms. Not only is it free, you don't actually have to be swinging a golf club. There is so much content out there to read/watch, that will help to improve your game, provided you don't get too obsessive with it... Putting too many ideas into practice at once can often be counterproductive.
