Get prepared for the golf season ahead

If you are serious about your golf then you need to get prepared for the golf season ahead, I am not just talking about dusting the cobwebs off of your golf clubs but seriously getting prepared!

Practice or play golf regularly

I know we are in the winter in the northern hemisphere but we can still visit the driving range if the weather does not permit playing at this time of year, going to the driving range is not all about trying to bomb drivers as far as you can hit it, going to the driving range should have a purpose. Get prepared for the golf season ahead - Row of golf bags

When I go to the driving range I imagine that I am playing 18 holes of golf at my local course, this then gives you a purpose and also makes you have to make the shot you are imagining, you should know your own course well enough and have played it enough to know whether you made good contact with the driver on the 1st tee then you can make the choice on your approach shot.

If you practice regularly with purpose your golf game will improve for the season ahead.
