Winter is over, let’s get back to golf
If you are living in a tropical country like Vietnam or Thailand, then there is no need to worry about the cold winter. It is very simple because there is no snow, no ice in these countries and the only weather that keeps you away from your favourite sport is heavy rain. However, things are different for people who are living in the north of America or Canada or all the countries that the winter is filled with coldness and snow and ice. This means no golf in the field during winter.
Some find relief in some indoor centers but this is totally different from playing golf in the wide and green golf field. Therefore, the others choose to stay at home and wait until ice and snow melt and the sun comes out and here we go to the golf field. The problem comes to when you suddenly find so difficult to make a good swing which you used to be so proud of. If you are in this frustrating situation, then this article is for you.
Where are all my golf stuffs?
It is normal if you can not find your golf stuff anywhere after a long time no touching them. They may lay somewhere and get rusting. You definitely need to spend a good time to dig them out of the corner they are sitting in, collect all of them and clean them until you can see your reflection on their faces. You do not want to wake up on a Saturday when the sun is up high, the wind is blowing mildly and you spend hours to find what you need for your games. Your clothes and gloves are also needed to be ready in their places before you decide to get back to your favourite sports. This helps save a lot of your time and you can be confident to head back to your games.
On the game
So here you are at the golf field with all your friends and maybe with your trainer. If you are with your trainer then it is fine because she or he will do their best to help you get back to the games smoothly even though it is embarrassing sometimes to show them how bad you have become after the long winter without any real practice or games. The situation is worse if you are playing with your friends because you may perform like a beginner. The only thing good maybe because your friends are playing no better than you. To avoid all these problems, you may want to make some preparation in advance. No matter how busy you are, you should spare some time to practice your swing, your poses, your balance. Each day you do some practice, and your muscles may come back to the track sooner before the first play. You also need to learn to accept that the first several games may not be as good as you used to play. This is so normal even to professional players because we need to practise continuously to perform well.
The weather and the earth may be still hard for you to really get used to holding your clubs. Your hands still not get the right feeling for the right swing. However, the fact that you are at the golf field is the first victory already. As long as you are determined and keep practise continuously, the feeling will come back to you and you will soon find yourselves be confident to make swings.
