Getting back into golf in the spring after a long winter layoff can be challenging, but doesn't have to be painful or injury prone. If you haven’t been keeping up on your stretching, now is the time to start. Tension is the enemy when it comes to your golf swing. Start with a few minutes of light cardio to warm up your muscles then spend a few minutes stretching each of these key areas: neck, shoulders and sides.
Work on strengthening your core by lifting weights. Or for a simple approach you can do basic sit-ups, crunches, and planks at home.
Start working on your swing but start small as you don’t want to pull any muscles. Start with shorter swings and short approach irons, working your way up to longer irons, fairway woods, and your driver. Looking for a place to hit some balls? The Championship Golf Shop now has an indoor hitting net and FlightScope launch monitor. This new gadget provides instant feedback and you can play a variety of courses virtually. Call the Golf Shop at 775-832-1146 to book a time to use the hitting net. The golf simulator sessions are priced by time instead of per player so play alone or bring some friends.
