Tom's Featured Tip: Two Things To Do Before Golf Season

For simplicity, all advice on actual swings or drills is provided from a right handed perspective.


With some luck, we could be golfing again here in the Northeast in 60 to 75 days.

I hope everyone is working on their swing speed, and here are two other aspects of your game that you still have time to improve on before the season is here.

1) Improve your putting stroke. You can do this with a 8' strip of indoor/outdoor carpet - or even better buy an inexpensive putting mat. I own and use a top end mat - but you can pick up a great mat called the SKLZ Accelerator Pro Indoor Putting Green with Ball Return from Amazon.com for under $50.

It doesn't take much space to set it up, and you can become absolutely DEADLY on short to medium length putts. The goal with this offseason exercise is to improve your mechanics to a point where you have so much trust in your stroke that when you get to the course in the Spring that you can focus entirely on your line and speed.

When I played competitive golf, I used to stroke 300 putts every night before a match on an Accelerator mat, and I was a deadly putter inside of 10'.

2) Rebuild your chipping/pitching technique. Making significant changes in our techniques during the golf season is the hardest thing we golfers try to do. What happens is that you learn something new, but on the golf course you are really wanting to get results, so you end up trapped between old and new, and quickly lose confidence in the new.

If chipping and pitching the ball are not your strengths, the rest of this off-season is the time to do something about it. After years of teaching this game, I've observed that poor chipping and pitching are the result of poor technique. There are dozens of good books and videos out there showing you how to develop a proper technique, and physical strength is not an obstacle around the greens. ANYONE can learn to chip and pitch with sound fundamentals, and those can be better learned away from the course than on it.

All you have to do is commit to making the change, study up on technique or take a basic chipping lesson, buy some of the soft "AlmostGolf Balls" Ěthat can't break anything, and work on it through the offseason.

There is still time to work on these two things, and if you do you'll be very pleased with the result when you hit the links this spring.

Try this, you'll really like it!
