Winter Golf Program Blog

Updated: Feb 20

If you are anything like my golfer friends (and husband), the winter break from golf can really give you the blues. Don’t let the cold temperatures bring you down! Now is the perfect time to get yourself golf ready for Spring.


So, where do you start? If you have had an evaluation from a Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) Certified professional, you are well on your way to knowing where you need to focus. If not, let’s focus on a few common swing faults and how you can improve your strength and mobility for those nagging faults.


Slice Slice Baby


Have a love-hate relationship with your slice? There are a lot of golfers who use their slice to their advantage. If you are one of those that would like to have better control or even eliminate it, try these three exercises. They will help you in other aspects of the game too! Hip mobility and pelvic/core stabilization (using your legs more than your arms in your downswing) will make all the difference!


Posterior Hip Capsule Mobilization -


Single Leg Stance (supported) with golf club -


Resisted Half Kneeling Lift - With and Without Rotation



Stuck in that swing? Feeling Trapped?


Early Extension is another common swing fault that leaves golfers feeling trapped in their swing with mishits after mishits. Let’s correct it with improved ankle mobility and back to that hip/core stabilization. Try these two exercises to keep that body where it belongs!


Dynamic Calf Stretching -



Dissociation Planks


Working on hip mobility and trunk stabilization through the winter will have you strong and hitting them long come spring.


Is your golf swing not as smooth as you would like it or are you sick of some nagging injuries holding you back?
