If you happen to live in a winter wonderland, kept off the links by snow and cold, it's pretty easy to let your game rust over like an old sand wedge.
In an effort to help you stay sharp, we've collected the favorite indoor winter drills from some of our Swingpal instructors.
The first one, called "Match Swoosh at Impact Drill," comes from Justin Bruton, Director of Instruction at the Biltmore Golf Course.
"For the winter months I like my players to get into a big open room that they can swing freely in without breaking anything,” Bruton said. “Then place a quarter on the ground as a visual target to focus on, in place of the golf ball. Set up to the quarter as if it was the ball, but with the club hovering a few inches of the ground, since taking a divot out of the carpet or tile floor is never popular with the significant other.
“Keep your eyes focused on the quarter as you take swings above the ground and try to match up the swoosh sound the club makes around impact to where the coin is on the ground. This drill will help you improve the timing of your release point and reduce the amount of tension in your swing. Just 10-15 minutes a day with this drill will definitely help you maintain some swing rhythm during the bad weather months."
