With the better weather fast approaching, you’re probably starting to think about dusting the clubs off and taking on the first tee. With that in mind, here are a few tips to help you prepare for the season ahead.
Often overlooked by golfers is the importance of correct grips.
By grips, we don’t mean hold on the handle, but the physical grip itself. If your grips are tackless, worn down or cracked, it’s best to replace them. As it’s the only part of the club that we actually make contact with during the swing, it’s always wise to spend some extra time to pick grips that are most suited to your game.
There is an unlimited range of golf grips on the market – and this handy tool from Golf Pride can help you to narrow down the options: https://www.golfpride.com/fit/
Sharpen up the short game
You’ve all heard of the phrase ‘drive for show, putt for dough’ and there couldn’t be a truer saying.
Start by setting up a makeshift putting green at home. Practice your pre-shot routine and make a few putts in your downtime.
Putting aids can make a world of difference once you’re back on the course. Highly recommended is a simple putting alignment mirror, as too is the PuttOut Pressure Putt Trainer; helping with accuracy and pace, it’s designed to accept and return good putts and reject bad ones. If you get the pace of your putt wrong, the PuttOut will return the ball to the same distance you missed from.
