We all know that nothing can work as well as practice…not a new driver, not the putter, not the balls…it’s the practice! But let’s face it, it’s tough to get to the course during the week or during the off-season, and this fact never lets our game develop to it’s potential. There is one way to make it easier on ourselves, though. Golf hitting nets! Here are 5 areas of the long-game that golf hitting nets naturally help you work on that in turn will dramatically drop your scores.
Ball-Striking- Hitting into a net naturally focuses attention onto the point of impact, rather than the outcome of the shot. This will increase consistency of ball-striking. Shots will become more solid at impact.
Increased Distance- Just the repeated act of hitting into the net will dramatically increase your strength of your “golf muscles”. With increased strength, your swing speed will increase, and so your distance.
Accuracy Improved- Many golf hitting nets have targets on the netting. Many don’t, but targets are easily added with white ribbon, tape, or other methods.
Ability To Recover- You need to make a conscious effort on this one- Practicing different trajectories with different clubs will allow you to get out of trouble easier. Punch that 7-iron to the lower part of the net to simulate getting out from under a tree. Hit it to the higher part of the net to get that extra height, etc…
Wind Game- Add some targets in the center of the net that are above and below the center target. Being able to manipulate your trajectory, yet keeping your aim, will help your wind game.
So there are a few great ways golf hitting nets will drastically improve your game. The best part of all is that it’s a ton of fun to have an at-home practice facility. You can then be amazed at the power of practice and have fun reaching your true potential.
