Get your Golf Game ready for Spring
We experienced some pretty incredible weather last Saturday and it got us thinking that now is the time to start getting ready for those 2018 rounds. If you haven’t already, it might be a good idea to grab that golf bag out of the garage and have a look at what needs to be cleaned and what needs to be traded up.

Stock up on the Essentials

What could be more essential to your golf game than golf balls? Now is the best time to stock up on TaylorMade’s incredible TP5 range used on Tour by big names including world number one Dustin Johnson, Rory McIlroy, Jason Day and Jon Rahm. To make it even sweeter we’ve got an amazing offer on - get a dozen personalised TP5 or TP5x balls free when you buy three dozen.

Another vital key to staying focused on your game is ensuring your feet are comfortable and dry throughout 18 holes. The newest range of FootJoy socks will do just that. Featuring the latest in moisture wicking technology, you’ll find the perfect match for your life on or off the course.

Time for a Spring Clean

To maintain top performance levels for your clubs it’s important to keep them clean of any dirt and debris. Whether you’ve persevered playing through the winter months or are just taking your clubs out for the first time this year a good clean, especially to the grooves of your irons and wedges, is definitely in order.

Your golf shoes are an important part of your game. Helping you to maintain a good grip and balance throughout your swing but also providing comfort and support as you walk 18.

Grab yourself the Perfect Practice Bag

Before the golf season gets well and truly underway, you’re going to want to get practicing and sharpen up those skills. Whether that means hitting the driving range or just playing in the garden you might not want to lug around your full bag. Pencil/Sunday bags are the perfect lightweight option to help you get in the practice time without sacrificing your back. Treat yourself to a new high quality pencil bag that will allow you to carry the essentials you need to get your game up to scratch.

Change those Grips

Losing your grip can have disastrous consequences on your golf game. Getting your clubs fitted with new grips can help to improve and maintain your control in and around the greens, an important factor to achieving lower scores. So to help safeguard your swing get your grips changed before playing this season.

The Grip Master collection available at GolfOnline offers a range of premium leather grips for all your golf clubs. These cowhide grips feature a soft tacky feel and will offer unrivalled performance in a variety of weather conditions.

Get Fitted!

If you’re looking to start spring 2018 off with a new set of golf clubs it’s a good idea to consider getting yourself fitted. A custom fitting works by fine-tuning clubs to your unique swing. Helping you to gain more distance and strike the ball more consistently each time. Check out the Custom Fit experience at GolfOnline or GolfInstore today.
