As we come out of winter and into spring each season, our bodies have changed more than we generally like to admit. Most of us are less active in the winter than in the summer. Therefore, our body goes through several changes including weight gain or loss, loss of flexibility, and a little bit of aging. All of these changes will affect your golf swing. By starting out the season focusing on your short irons and wedge play, you perform many useful functions:
1. You retrain your golf muscles in a safe, controlled manner that you would not do by starting out trying to hit a driver as hard as you can.
2. You regain some of your flexibility, timing, and balance.
3. You practice more common shots that will improve your scoring average.
4. You build your confidence by working on shots that are easier to hit straight and easier to get in the air.
So, start your golf season by working on your wedges and short irons. You will play better and enjoy the game more this year!
