Making The Most Of Winter
By Chris Foley


With the golf season coming to an end for most of us, now is the time to start working on your game for next year. Utilize this winter and come into the spring golf season ready for peak performance.

Here are some ways to get the most out of this winter.

Commit to a series of lessons. Find a PGA professional who will assess your current game and develop a plan for the winter. A series of lessons will allow you to make changes with your pro and work on these changes in between lessons.

Go through a physical assessment. The winter is a great time to work on your strength, balance and flexibility. An assessment with a TPI (www.mytpi.com) trained practitioner will let you know where your deficiencies are. The practitioner will develop a workout program that will benefit your game.

Make 100 practice swings a day. There are multiple benefits to this, but putting a club in your hands everyday and making practice swings will keep your swing in shape and make a big impact on any swing changes you are making.

Hit balls in a dome, simulator, or net. If you have never played in a simulator or haven't had an opportunity in a couple of years, you will be amazed at how realistic the new simulators are. Play some of the courses on the PGA Tour or a "bucket list" course.

Practice your putting. Working on your putting stroke and distance control can pay major dividends come springtime. There are some great putting mats available that have the speed and feel of a real putting green.

Utilizing the winter to work on your golf game and make 2018 your best golf season yet!
