Watch Old Golf Tournaments

  • Use this time to watch some of the awesome tournaments from the past.  Go back as far as you want and learn the history of the game. Learn about the courses that have hosted the US Open and PGA Championship and improve your golf knowledge.  You can find many old tournaments on You Tube plus Golf Channel may start showing these.

Draw Golf Courses on Paper

  • I used to draw the holes I would play the next tournament or the next 9-hole match in high school. It is a good exercise and way to plot and strategize your next round there.  Think about how you want to play the hole. Look at the angles.  Create a better strategic approach for when you come back to full competition.
