Spring Is Almost Here: Indoor Practice Drills To Get Ready

I continue to chip and putt every day in preparation for spring. We are just a few weeks away, but I am always willing to try new things before the ranges open. Kevin, a constant supporter of The Grateful Golfer, pointed out a video about setting the club first before aligning our body when making a golf shot. I admit that I have done this in the past, but seem to have gotten away from the habit. It might be time to revisit this approach. Additionally, the video offered some other excellent tips that I thought are worth sharing. Take a look!

Continuing to practice indoors is critical to a fast start this year. I missed most of last season and plan to take advantage of the ability to play full time in 2019. I expect I can transition to outdoor practice very soon, but in the meantime I plan will do something every day.

Lastly, I want to mention fitness. I plan to writing a more detailed article soon, but it is important to focus on physically getting ready as well. I have to admit, that this aspect of my indoor preparation is a tad more challenging this year. But, now that I can feel the warmer weather heading our way, I will have to mentally hunker down and get to it.

Do you have any indoor drills you consistently do in the off-season? If so, please share.

I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links!

  1. Jim, tip of the cap to you for constructing that chipping net and using it during the winter. You will not believe how sharp your short game will be when you make it outside. One year, I constructed a putting ramp and banged 6 footers all winter. I never putted better that spring and am kicking myself to this day for getting rid of that.

  2. Except for putting, I do very little indoors due to lack of room in any area of my home where I wouldn’t scratch up my floors. But as a Floridian, indoor practice isn’t required anyway. This week my practice has been on something I see the pro’s do all the time but that I’ve never really learned. A relatively low, high spin chip with the lob wedge is what I’ve been hitting in the back yard this week. I’ve got a spot that gives a real tight lie to make it as difficult as possible. So far I think I’m getting the hang of it but I’ll wait to try it on the course until I can get some range time in to help zero in some distance control with it too. I’d really love to have that shot in my bag.

    • Kevin,

      I would like that shot as well. I guess situations dictate whether indoor practice is required. I envy the fact you can practice year round with full swings. However, only a couple of weeks now and I will be outside!

      Cheers Jim
