It is very easy to lose track of your golf swing during the winter months here in Northern Alberta. In fact I bet many of you haven’t even said the word ‘golf’ in weeks. If you are wondering how foreign your swing has become, go find your golf bag, pull out one of your wedges and take 20 swings. Start off swinging small and slow so that you don’t hurt yourself and swing just above the ground (no divots required). I like to use a wedge as it is a shorter club and I hit the roof in the basement far less often than when using my 7 iron. It is also a little heavier so that I get a better sense of where the club head is during the swing. If you are feeling a lot of muscles that you don’t normally feel during the golf season, it simply means that you need to be swinging this club a little more often. Now don’t bother putting this club back in your golf bag but instead put it somewhere where you will stumble into it on a daily basis and see if you can get into the routine of swinging it 20 times a day. I guarantee that simply swinging the club on a daily basis will reap great rewards when the season starts.
