More on Off Season Work
No sooner than I started gloating over the wonderful mild winters we have here in South Texas that our first blast descended upon us. This week is going to be cold (for us – highs in the40s), windy and wet (hopefully, God knows we could use the rain!). So, I’m feeling like my golf brothers in the north, where it’s just not in the picture for a while. That got me to thinking what I could be doing on these cold wet days to help my golf game when practicing is out of the question.
These are things any and all of us can do throughout the winter when actually getting out to play or practice just isn’t in the cards. And we’d all benefit next spring and summer if we just spend a little time and interest away from the course working on simple things that will help our golf performance.

I putt in the basement...I have a little 1x6' putting mat and I roll putts during commercials when I'm watching sports on the weekends.
I saw a trainer two years ago for eight weeks...and I got eight really good workouts that are geared to golfers. I'm by no means a gym rat, but I think the strength training, cardio, and stretching that I have done the last few years has been one of the best moves I've ever made for my golf game.
I watch every minute of golf that I can during the winter. It just keeps me pumped up. We're in for a slow month...but when the PGA starts in Hawaii, I try to watch all the coverage I can.
I read all of the Bob Rotella's books on golf. Great winter tradition.
