The season is over.
Golf is a seasonal sport.
During that time we focus on different things.
Because it’s too cold to play golf in the winter or even to spend some time on the practice tee.
Right? No! Wrong!
And you know very well that this isn’t true.
It’s just a mindset that many golfers take on during the wintertime.
The weather delusion – Play Golf in the Winter Season
Of course it depends on where you are living but often enough if you look outside the window you could very well go play or train with the right clothing and the right plan.
So don’t stop just because it is winter and the course is getting emptier.
You can not only keep your game in shape during the winter but also improve quite a bit with the right mindset.
Of course it’s freezing outside and you can barely hold your clubs then it’s finally time to go inside.
Which doesn’t mean that you have to stop to play or to train.
There are a lot of things you can do inside.
Especially in the short game area. Try working on your putting game for a couple of weeks.
If you have the room you can even train some chipping or your full swing.
Try taking the same approach that you have on the practice tee.
How about working in chunks of time while focusing on the different areas of your game.
For instance you could do a two or three hour training session two or three times per week.
It could consist of some putting chipping and working on a different aspect of your swing.
Trying New Things
Wintertime is also a great time to try out some new sport.
How about trying other sports that are played with a club like tennis or hockey if you haven’t tried that before.
And it’s never a bad idea to do some fitness.
So go to the gym or lift some weights at home. And if you’re not in the mood for training your body at least train your mind. Take some golf books off your shelf and work through them.
How about reading those that have collected the most dust?
