Off-Season Golf Tips
Tip #1: Prevent Your Swing From Hibernating
Make it a point to hit some balls at least a couple of times a month during the winter. This practice will help you to be ready for that first round of golf in the spring.
Tip #2: Evaluate Your Equipment
February is a great time to buy new equipment. All of the products for the new year are released by then and many of last year’s top items will be on sale. Visit the expert club fitters at Pelican Golf, to find your perfect fit.
Tip #3: Get Stronger
Once you learn to make solid contact with the ball on a regular basis, almost nothing can improve your game more than being stronger and more physically fit. Find a personal trainer and let them know your goal is to improve strength and flexibility to improve your golf game.

Tip #4: Read, Read, Read
Most golf books are instructional in nature and you need to be careful to not let differing opinions confuse you. Other books are just great stories that will keep you connected to the game.
Tip #5: Get Out of Dodge
Winters in the Midwest are tough on everyone but can be especially demoralizing for golfers. A golf trip will give you something to look forward to and helps break up the winter. There are tons of destinations for every budget.
