A couple of years ago I built a DIY indoor driving net in my garage. It is perfect for combating the winter blues of no golf. Right about now, I have set up my driving range and slowing started swing the kinks and aches out of my body. Unfortunately, this years weather has not complied to my requirements and it is still too cold to set anything up.
You may wonder why it is too cold and that is a good question. Here is what we have been experiencing over the past few weeks.
This is bitterly cold even by Canadian standards. Plus, I cannot heat my garage enough with the wood stove to make it comfortable to swing my clubs. So, I have to try and keep my above zero and hope that warmer weather comes our way. As it is, another two weeks will likely be the target date to start swinging my clubs.
In the meantime, I have started my after holiday working out that includes cardio, weights and stretching. It is a slow process, but I have committed to working out when I first get out of bed. I have found that if I wait till later in the day, the changes of me working out drop exponentially as the day progresses.
I am looking forward swinging away this year in my garage. At this time, I am on day 115 without play golf with an expectation of another 75 days to go before the golf courses open. So, you can see why my DIY driving net is so important to my mental state of playing golf. For now, I will continue to stay warm and keep safe!
I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links!
