Well, unfortunately the 7 day forecast says I have about 3 more rounds left for this season(unless the Golf Gods smile upon us and give us a few days here and there). I am wondering how I can keep my swing active over the winter so next spring it isn't so much shock to my handicap? Any suggestions?
Go to a heated range, I know there are 2 within 10 miles of my house, and some golf instructors have indoor lesson facilities and heated golf academies. Also go to Golf Galaxy and for like $50 you can buy a net to hit into, and you can hit full shots in your basement or wherever. Hope that was helpful
Find an indoor "golf dome" in your area.
practice slow motion swings in your house, find a heated driving range if possible, practice putting on a carpet indoors, and last but not least brave the cold and hit some balls in a local park or field.
Well you have a couple of choices. You can find a driving range with a hitting area that is covered or buy an indoor net and hit into it. If you use an indoor net most of your work should be on drills to address swing fundamentals. Because although you may feel like you are flushing the ball you can develop swing flaws as a result of not seeing the ball flight.
Hope that gives you some ideas.
Thanks Gang, knew I could get some great advice here :)
I think I will get a mat and net and practice outside (my ceilings aren't high enough). We used to have an indoor virtual golf place, but they closed up, Looks like I will practice swing drills and fundamentals indoors, and try to be brave thru the winter and hit some balls off into a field.
Thanks again :)
yeah - find a field, and on bearable days get out there - just make sure you have a target. I use a field near my home early in the morning when no one is there, and it's really great practice.
There have been several good ideas posted - buy a net, et cetera. We bought an Optishot simulator, a mat and net. Not only do we use it to work on our swings because it has such great feedback, we play. it's a not the cheapest option, but we get our money's worth out of it. Hope it helps.
Chipping and putting on carpet is a good way to go. I'll also fire some foam or whiffle balls around the yard in the snow. It's not perfect, but it keeps you in shape (sort of)
