How to Practice Golf in Lockdown?
February 3, 2021
We’re in the midst of winter but golf enthusiasts all over the UK are eager to go out and play golf. If you’re not able to use the golf course, there are some ways to practice at home. It's not that inconvenient - at least you won't need a golf umbrella to protect you from the horrible winter wind and rain when you’re inside!
First of all find a good space in your house or flat where you won't be in a way and won't knock anything or anyone over. You can replace the golf club with another similarly shaped and weighted item. You can record yourself to see how your golf swing is performing. You can use many household items to help you practice from a broom to a cushion. A broom is perfect to practice a powerful impact and an old cushion helps you master your half-swing. Research many of the at home practice techniques online.
With the home schooling and kids at home, its a great time to get them involved in your golf practice. Any form of activity will do them and you good especially since we’re all at wits ends with this winter lockdown.
If you’re lucky enough to have a garden and an outside area you can of course practice outdoors. You don't have to hit the ball, practicing your swing will be helpful enough.
It is important to find time to practice your hobby in lockdown. Long dark days seem much more bearable if you have a goal to complete and practicing your golf technique can be this goal.
Once the spring arrives and the lockdown eases you will be able to go out on the golf course once again and show off your improvement to your competitors. Remember the days are already becoming longer, people are getting vaccinated and very soon we’ll be out enjoying life once again.
