One of the many things I need/want to improve on is hitting a consistent long ball; both off the tee and with my long irons/hybrids/fairway woods. It is something I have longed for over the years and this year I think I have a plan to make it happen. It has to do with my previous thoughts on stretching, my orange whip and building an indoor driving range. Yup, an indoor driving range.
I still have quite a bit of work to do before I can make my indoor range hitting real golf balls. I received the net last year, Now I need a big space to set up and I now have that in my garage. It is going to be great and my golfing friends are almost as excited as I am to get things set up.
I am still working on the design, but the concept is there. I will also be building a larger hitting mat that will stand up to my continuous hitting. It is going to be great….I can hardly wait.
Of course, I will be documenting my progress on how things are going to work out for all you jealous readers, but have no fear you will be the first to know. When I come up with my final design, I will post it to see if you any suggestions. Until then, you will have to stay in a state of suspended animation.
One thing I am sure of – if I use my future net at least 4 times a week I will be in better shape come spring than ever before and my season will start at a higher level than ever. I mean, why not I have nothing to lose! It is going to be great.
Do you have a practice area in your house?
I am a grateful golfer!
