October 2021 - Keep Your Game Going This Winter...
Winter is well and truly on its way! It definitely feels that little bit chillier on the range in the mornings, and the nights are slowly but surely starting to draw in.
A concern for many golfers, particularly those who have improved significantly over the summer, is how they are going to retain their skills during the winter months and off-season. Absolutely nothing compares to getting out on the course, and with these opportunities highly reduced during winter, it would be realistic to expect some depletion in ability over the coming months.
However, these things never work out as badly as they might seem in your head! Research has indicated that it can take as long as 6 months of a complete break in practice before specific skills start to fade, and there are a range of things you can be doing in the meantime to keep losses to a minimum.
“The higher level of proficiency prior to a break, the higher the level of retained skill will be”. What better time than now to book in for a course of lessons on the range? Not only can you improve on your weaknesses, but you can make sure that when we can get back to regular rounds on the course, you’ll minimise the time it takes to get back up to full speed.
“Keeping in touch with peers and staying aware of developments in the sport can mitigate skills fade”. Believe it or not, research has shown that just continuing to socialise with your regular playing partners can reduce skill losses. A great way to do this is to visit the range and play some virtual rounds on Toptracer. This not only provides a chance to catch up with your golfing friends, but also offers valuable practice time in a competitive environment, which is as close as you can get to being on an actual course!
Above all else though, remember that some rest is not necessarily a bad thing! Enjoy the relaxation of a break from the game if you choose to take one, let those small niggling injuries heal, and rejuvenate your motivation to get out and play!
To help keep your motivation high and your game at its best, we’re going to be launching some new Winter Coaching Packages over the coming weeks, so keep an eye out for those! Our Saturday morning junior group sessions will also finally be returning at the end of the month, and in addition to our Half-Term Camp, there’s plenty to keep the golf mad kids busy too!
See you on the range!
