Use this training aid to improve your chipping indoors this winter

Winter may mark the end of golf season, but you can still improve inside.


Winter is perhaps the worst time of year for golfers — especially up north. Many courses are closed, and for those that aren’t, the conditions just don’t stack up to their summer prime. Even worse, your game can go into hibernation as you store the sticks away during those cold spells.

But just because it’s wintertime does’t mean you can’t get better — far from it. There are a variety of ways you can improve this offseason from the comfort of your own home. With the right workouts and stretches, you can show up to the 1st tee with confidence that your swing will perform.

By: Zephyr Melton

If you’re itching for something a little more golf-centric, you can turn to training aids as well. Many of them even work indoors. One such item we love is Chippo, a game (and training aid!) that you can use in your living room to keep that short game sharp.

Chippo is described as “the glorious lovechild of cornhole and golf,” as you take turns with your opponent chipping back and forth into nets for points. Chippo comes with turf mats to hit off, plus foam balls so you don’t have to worry about shattering any windows or breaking any furniture.

Best of all? Chippo is on sale for 20 percent off in the Pro Shop through the holidays. Check it out below.
