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.
In an earlier post we featured and highlighted the Swingbyte golf swing analyzer and smartphone application. The Swingbyte is one of only a couple devices and apps that offer real time swing data via bluetooth to your smartphone and or tablet device. Very few of these devices available to the consumer market are affordable, convenient, or as comprehensive as the Swingbyte.
