going to two-putt - at most - from this range!
- Take your clubs to your local PGA pro for a health check:
- You should ask for your clubs' lofts and lies to be rechecked.
- Check the clubs' grips. Are they too worn out?
- Set out some specific golf goals for the coming season:
- Reduce your handicap by a couple of shots
- Make one or more of your golf club’s teams
- Win a club or an open competition
- Win a local Golf Club's Scratch cup.
- Reduce the total putts per round and become a better putter.
- Just perhaps enjoy the game more?
- You could take a series of golf lessons from your local PGA golf Professional.
- If you have taken a winter’s break from playing golf, it is quite difficult to pick up where you left off from your last game of golf. To avoid starting down the road of creating bad habits in your golf swing and then trying to second guess a swing fix, I suggest you should arrange a series of three to five lessons to look at your swing and golf game with your local PGA Golf Professional.
- Also please take some time to work on your flexibility. If you can improve your general flexibility, you can hit the ball further and make more consistent golf swings.
- May I suggest that you could make an appointment with a recommended physical therapist and ask him/her to test your body’s flexibility? If you do, please ask for two stretching programmes. One for a daily general stretch to prevent unwanted injuries. The second stretching plan can be directed at increasing your range of motion in specific areas of your body that help your golf swing.
