The snow is almost gone, the temperatures are rising and the season is just about here. If it has been months since you’ve looked at your golf bag, you may notice that there is still dirt from the last game of last season stuck in the grooves; it is that time to check your gear. Dust off your golf bag, pull out your clubs and ‘clean’ them. Check the grips for wear and tear… remember that they are like the oil in your car and need to be ‘changed’ from time to time. While you are at it, check to make sure that the shafts are not cracked, dented or bent and that all the heads are still securely epoxied on. Get some warm soapy water and a brush and see if you can find the faces of your clubs again. Now that your clubs are clean and inspected, take one outside and SWING it. You don’t have to hit anything with it… just take some slow easy swings to remind your body what it feels like to swing a club again. Now if you can swing that club again just a few times every day until the range opens, you will be far less likely to hurt yourself by overdoing it on opening day.
See you in a week or so…Dave
