Are you looking to maintain what you worked on all season over the long winter months? If so, we have some drills that are guaranteed to help your game this off season. The good news is that these drills do not require you to hit balls or leave the comfort of your own home. Good drills and exercise should be practiced using your golf posture to achieve proper golf mechanics. If practiced correctly, drills should feel different from your golf swing. What you might notice is a slight stretch in the lower back and or hip area and difficulty staying in posture. To make these drills effective and to develop better muscle memory, use a tall hallway mirror to get the instant feedback you need to see how far off you really are. Practice these drills 3-5 days a week for 5-15 minutes at a crack. If you are diligent and work on these drills all winter, you will see a difference this spring. From there, I would encourage all golfers to practice these drills on the range before and during a practice session. Ultimately its easier to fix a swing fault without hitting balls. So if your diligent and work on these drills, better golf is in your future.
I have written about alignment before and cannot stress how important it is. Often times in lessons, golfers ask why they are experiencing subtle or not so subtle misses. Yet, ball striking remains solid and their swing and setup remain unchanged. Generally the answer is setup and alignment.
The worst thing we can do is blame missed shots on our golf swing when your alignment is off. So before you go making drastic changes based upon the most current Golf Digest, read some of our previous articles on alignment sticks and watch our video (Setup and Alignment 101 For Lower Scores).
Each year, fashion becomes a bigger part of golf. Golf fashion isn’t as much about the brand as it is about color and flair. Today, it goes beyond gaudy colored golf shirts and pants. Now clothing and accessory companies are making golf bags, golf shoes, golf tess, gloves and belts with stylish flair.
Male or Female you want to look the part of a golfer especially if you cant play the part. That means color coordinating your golf shirt and pants with your shoes and maybe even your hat.
In recent years, the white belt has been all the trend with golfers of all ages. You might also see a few PGA Tour Players like Camillo Villegas, Rickie Folwer and just about every other tour player is sporting large, gaudy belt buckles.
