5 Tips for Getting Your Golf Game Back in Shape this Spring

Spring always signals new beginnings both in life as well as on the golf course. So, will 2020 be the year that you accomplish your goals of breaking 100, 90, 80, or perhaps winning the club championship? Odds are that a major breakthrough will only happen if you significantly improve one or more aspects of your golf game. However, this does not necessarily mean that hitting the ball farther or spending more time on the practice area are the only answers to improving at this mysterious game we call golf! So, how do we get off to a great start this season? A thorough evaluation of the items listed below will ensure that you are addressing all areas of your game and making the necessary improvements this season. Here are my top 5 tips to get your game ready for the spring:

  1. Check your equipment. Do your clubs need to be re-gripped? How do the faces of your wedges look, are the grooves worn down? Take the time to schedule a club fitting in order to make sure you are playing the right clubs for your swing and your game. If you are not hitting your driver consistently or far enough, you may benefit from a driver fitting to increase the launch angle and reduce backspin. Launch monitor technology enables us to give you the necessary feedback to fit your equipment properly and also determine if you have any major yardage gaps in between clubs.                                                                                                                                                                

  2. Get your mental game in check. Take some time to read some books on how to practice and how to think both on the golf course and while you practice. There are some great books out there written by Pia Nilsson and Lynn Marriott that I would highly recommend along with Dr. Rick Jensen’s books. One of my personal favorites is “Golf is Not A Game of Perfect,” by Dr. Bob Rotella.                                                                                                                                                                  

  3. Practice putting. Putting is something we can all improve on at any age or handicap. Practicing with the use of training aids like a putting arc or a mirror has proven to be very effective. Also, improving your speed control from longer distances or lag putting will help reduce or eliminate those dreaded 3 putts.                                                                                                                                      

  4. Fitness. It is important to get your body ready from a fitness standpoint to be ready for the spring season. I would highly recommend finding someone who is TPI (Titleist Performance Institute) Certified because they have golf specific knowledge. I recommend Dr. Chris Leib located in Ardmore, PA. Fitness is important to prevent injuries and to add more distance to your shots.                                                                     

  5. Coaching. It is important to find a coach who you are comfortable with and will teach in a simple and concise manner so you are not overwhelmed. A golf coach will cover all aspects of the game and take a holistic approach to your improvement. A great coach can help put you on the fast track to improvement.

So get to work on these five items and you will be well on your way to a new and improved golf game!
