How to Swing In Golf When You Can’t Get Out to Play

I was thinking about how to swing in golf the other day. That is how to swing in golf when you cannot get out to play.

What I have decided is I am going to do the very next best thing. I am going to practice in my garage. I have a two car attached garage with two cars parked in their. I must take one out to practice and then I have to practice in a way that I don’t hit the rails for the garage door.

Anyway, I have begun to practice that way. Even when the temp is only in the 40′s and possibly in the 30′s I will still be able to practice. My garage, maintains about 34 degrees all winter unless it is warmer outside. I am not sure that is something I can brag about because it means I am losing heat from the house and heating the garage.

But I am going to the various golf courses I play and getting their score cards. I am going to play their courses over the winter and have a variety of  courses so I won’t get bored. I will play each hole using the same clubs I would use for each shot and even practice my putting strokes. I have swatches of carpeting from times when I put new carpeting down on the floors in my house and will use them for my tee mats. I will not use a ball for this practice. Just the swings.

Even if I only do this three times per week over the winter, I will be in mid season form for the beginning of the year. If you need a rug sample go to your nearest carpet store and buy one from them. It can’t cost more than $10 for a sample.

I want to change subjects just slightly. There is a fellow on the Internet that advocates a variety of ways to practice during the year and particularly over the winter to be in good shape when the season starts. He calls himself “the Recreational Golfer”. His real name is Bob Jones, believe it or not. He has played golf for over 50 years and is a 9 handicap. This is his web site therecreationalgolfer.

On the page I have sent you to, he has a mixture of videos and articles that he has written to help you find equipment, practice various shots and miscellaneous things to help you golf better. He also sells a book if you want it that cost $14.95 which has all of his knowledge of golf. Anyway, he is fun to watch and many of his ideas are novel to use.

Also, I found another long drive  winner that is selling his book but I am sure that the one I have already bought is pretty good. I will let you know later on what I really think.

I have got to stop looking at all of these things. I originally started this blog to do that and to help you with the best one so that you would not spend all the money that I have but I am confusing myself with all of the various methods to hit a golf ball. So let me get it straight in my head and I will provide the best method to hit the golf ball.

Finally, I did read an article from another golfing teacher that was trying to help a young female fenom that was having troubles with her chipping. He had to get into her head and try to straighten her out so that her chipping was as  good as the rest of her game. But the thing that caught my attention was that he showed her how to swing in golf by using the hybrid club to chip around the green to keep from hitting bad shots.

The reason I mention this is that I am still having troubles of my own around the green. Sometimes I am great and others times I am not, so I thought I would try using my five metal, which looks like a hybrid and use it to chip with. We plan on going out to the golf course today and it would be a good opportunity to try it to see how it works.

I hope the course has dried out a little as we have had a lot of rain over the last few weeks.

I think I have given you a lot of golf swing tips to use and a location to find even more. Keep plugging along and I will be back with you tomorrow with results from my attempts to do something different with my golf swing.

I should mention, there is one thing I am certain of and that is this, if you are a high handicap, someone that shoots in the 100′s then using the Simple Golf Swing from David Nevogt is the one for you.

This course is designed to help the hacker on how to swing in golf and hit the ball straight to keep it in play. This will have you playing better within a very short period of time. It is the simplest and easiest method of improving your golf swing and golf scores. It also has a money back guarantee, so you have nothing to lose.

See ya tomorrow.

By the way if you are new to this blog and want to start at the beginning
