      This is the time most people feel they should quit. Can you believe it? Got to work on it every day or most days. You can’t take a break.

    Paul, I am not finished with golfing yet. My club closes Nov. 1st and opens in April. But what you have said about the practice swings makes sense.

      Just laying it on the line to those who quit. You can’t quit working on your swing. Ever.

  4. The ” off season ” is great also to refine YOUR short game .I you have a basement large enough ,you CAN practise putting from 4 to 25 feet .You need to have an appropriate carpet to do So ( I have a ” WELLNESS ” carpet OF 8 meters )
    You CAN practise chipping from various distances to a small net with rubber balls .
    For the full swing .practising in front OF a Window pane ,without any ball is more than enough .( Paul shows it on his site )
    Then there’s the body strenghening and stretching/ flexibility drills ,such as those shown on Jeremy KLINKHAMER ‘site ,or alternatively ROGER FREDEICKS ‘ s site .

      It sure it a great time for short game. I used to work on all of this on the carpet. Great golf take work and commitment. Tons of stuff you can work on in the winter. Why not?

    For a few weeks I was resigned to foregoing the golf course in favor of daily indoor practice swings. The practice swings looked and felt great.

    Today was unseasonably mild and so I went to the driving range, and lo and behold, the practice swings didn’t translate to good contact on the ball.

    What’s going on?

      You are thinking of hitting the ball NOT the positions. So forget the ball and do the positions. Hit the shot, hold it and check them. I go through this on a daily basis. I show the positions. I get them doing the positions. I put the ball down and they try to hammer it as hard as they can no thinking in anyway about the positions I just told them. So over a 4 hour lesson I will tell them 200 times to do the positions. No joke. So why not forget the ball and work on one of two positions. Tee it up and hit easy shots doing the positions. Then you do it at home and again at the range until you know for a fact you are doing the positions with the ball in front of you. Once you can do it slowly you increase the body for more power.

      This is a building process. I am a miracle worker but my miracles take a little time, understanding and practice.
