So you want to lower your golf handicap?
Probably an important question for most golfers, especially when we're leaving a lengthy and forced rest period.
One of the unintended consequences of successive lockouts is that many people gain weight. The nudging effect for golfers is that the extra weight affects your golf swing in four specific ways:
- The extra weight is usually placed around the hips and core. This affects how you can perform your swing and has a significant impact on your fades and draws.
- Extra weight will hinder your swing by reducing flexibility. As mentioned above, dissolves and drag are affected, but so is removal. With reduced flexibility, your ability to fully open your swing will decrease.
- Carrying extra weight is exhausting. For the sake of reasoning, let's assume you have put on almost one stone / 6 kg in the past 14 months. Now get something in your home / office that weighs something near a stone. Imagine wearing this around for 18 holes / 3 hours.
- The mental effects. Do your golf clothes still match you? Are you aware of the extra weight you are carrying?
