Not everyone lives on the coast of Florida and can enjoy a round of golf almost any day of the year. So what do the rest of us do when November 1st hits and your next eighteen holes seems an eternity away? The golf off-season has recently become equally as important as those treasured months out on the green. There are dozens of training exercises and workouts designed for golfers to keep their momentum and swing strong during even the coldest winter days.
Golf pro’s across America have put together training programs to enhance flexibility, resilience and strength during the off-season. Here are a few simple tips to keep in mind before you rely on the Golf Channel to get your daily fix:
Practicing your golf swing is easy in an indoor driving range but it can also be done in your home. Pick a location that yields little furniture and ample space. Put a small carpet square down to avoid any damage to your clubs or home. Putting is another skill that should not be forgotten and can be practiced anywhere from the garage to the basement.
The most important thing to do is stay active. Don’t let the off-season be the reason your fitness suffers. New England golfers may not be outside walking the greens but working out is something that should be done year round. It is crucial to exercise everyday to strengthen muscles and avoid putting on those dreaded pounds. A little cardio everyday is important for every golfer whether you live in San Diego or Providence.WHAT'S YOUR REACTION?
