Get ready for the sports season
Posted 15th March 2016 by SockShop
We’ve once again got a great summer of sport to look forward to. The Cricket Twenty20 and Sri Lanka’s tour of England start this summer, while golf comes home with the Troon Open.
Now is the time to get ready…
Summer is all about the sound of leather on willow. Spring is the perfect time to make sure everything from your kit to your swing is in good shape.
With golf coming home to Scotland this summer, it’s time to get out your clubs and hit the fairways once again…
To keep your clubs in the best condition, they need to be kept clean. Especially iron clubs, which can start to taint if left covered in dirt. Also, check the grips to see if they need redoing.
Go through the pockets to make sure you’ve got enough tees, club covers, spikes and towels. Count your balls and give them a clean and tip the bag up for any other useful items that might have got lost at the bottom.
As seasons change, so do fashions. Invest in a few brightly coloured polo shirts to inject a bit of summer spirit to your local fairway. You might even be brave enough to buy some shorts in the hope we actually get days that are warm enough to wear them.
If you head straight onto the course without stretching you’re going to pull a muscle. Start your stretches early to make sure you’re fully limber when you play your first round.
