Winter rust

January is here and depending on where you live, you may not have had a chance to play much golf.  Taking an extended time away from the game can really hurt your game.  Even if you are doing something indoors, it's better than nothing.  Exercise, stretching, and swinging indoors is a great way to stay sharp.  The more limber you are, the better your golf will be.  I even do yoga once a week in addition to lifting weights about 3 times a week.  My goal this year is to strengthen my legs and work on the flexibility in my hips.  Every golfer is built differently.  You have to create a program that works well with what you are trying to do with your body or swing.  Consult a professional if you need someone to develop a training plan for you.  You can also do putting indoors if your housemates don't care.  Putt on a linoleum floor or carpet.  Training aids like the putting arc work great too.  When the weather breaks, you will be ready to conquer the course.  Stay thirsty my friends.
