Take your clubs to your local PGA pro for a health check:
- You should book your clubs into your local golf repairs shop and check your club’s lofts and lies.
- 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 and after a couple of games, your swing feels quite off! To avoid starting down the road of creating bad habits within your golf swing and trying to second guess a swing fix by using youtube or reading golf swing tips. I would suggest you should arrange a series of three to five golf lessons with your local PGA Golf Professional.
- Also please take some time to work on your flexibility. If you can improve your flexibility, you can hit the ball further and make more consistence golf strikes.
- May I suggest you could make an appointment to visit a recommended a golf specific TPI expert and ask him/her to test your body’s flexibility?
This is a plan that I have worked on this follow plan for one of my students:
- To win his home Golf Club’s Scratch cup
- To play number one on his golf club’s senior cup team
- Improve his 75 yard approach shot game & land the ball within 10 feet. (grade yourself out of 10 shots and go from 7 out of 10 to 9 out of 10)
- Improve distance putting. (Stroke tempo and distance control)
- Play more conservative and tighten up mid iron distance control (note your yardages and play of the centre of the green and avoid flag hunting)
- Identify the front-centre, centre and back-centre of the greens you play as targets and closely monitor your distances played and the selected irons use to play.
