Tips Before You Start The Golf Season

If you’re an avid golfer like I am, it’s an exciting time of year because it’s officially golf season! Now is the time to prep before you head out to the course. Here are a few tips to get ready for the season:

Short Game

Start by working on your short game. Go to the range as often as you can to get your groove back. I like to start playing 9 hole courses at the beginning of the season because it’s a great way to practice your irons. Most courses offer a putting green somewhere near the range, so it’s also a good idea to take some time to practice that too.

Examine your Grip

It’s probably been a few months since you last used your clubs, so it’s a good idea to inspect your grips.  If they’re in pretty good shape, you can likely get away with just giving them a soap and water wipe down. If your grips are dried or cracked, you probably need to replace them. It’s best to do this early in the season so that you can adapt to your new equipment.

Stretch

It’s no secret that flexibility is one of the most important factors when it comes success in golf. A standard stretch to the floor to touch your toes will help loosen up your hamstrings and lower back.  You can also grab a wedge and slowly swing it back and forth 20 or 30 times to loosen up your arms and back muscles. I find that if I don’t stretch, it messes up my swing and ultimately I become frustrated. You need flexibility and mobility to properly hit the ball, so remember to do this first above all else!

Cardio

Doing cardio prior to golf season will help you maintain your stamina once you’re out on the course. If you avoided the gym this past winter, start off with taking a walk, doing yoga, or some simple exercises. Don’t overdo it. Once you find a specific workout regime, stick to it. Trust me, it will end up helping you on the links.
