Sorry I'm slow to getting around to reading this. I would like to hear more about the stations you have set up. What type of bands? Any pictures you could post of the 3 stations maybe?

I've got room in my basement but I was thinking of those expensive pulley contraptions. The band stations has perked my ears up.

I am using resistance band training for a 2nd year in a row. In winter I slug down into my basement where I have three stations set up. One is direct overhead for pulldowns. One is at waist height for twisting the core. The last is overhead but angles at 45 degrees so I can pull over my shoulder and across. I have found that when my core is strong my swing can operate at around 80 - 85% maximum. Distance is good and control is increased. And with a strong core I don't feel like my tank is on empty when I reach the last 3 - 4 finishing holes. I've put on LBS over the winter but building my core will begin to help me burn calories. Yes, I intend to grip it but not rip it (@ 100%) this season.

I love to read golf magazines in the off season. Even though some of the instructional articles can be contradictory from instructor to instructor, they all have a common goal, and people who are truly interested in improving their game have lots to gain by reading them. I think many people who are trying to improve their golf game are looking for the magic pill, perhaps through new equipment. This isn't dissimilar to people trying to lose weight. It is much easier to seek out a magic pill instead of putting the work in. When I get the real itch, I will break out the putter and put in my living room. Here is something that I like to do in the off season as well. Swing a weighted club. When the weather permits us to finally hit the links, we all struggle with timing. The weighted club will add rhythm to your swing and have you ready to hit it out of the gate. Let's hope for a short off season.

Since this is a slow time of year for the PGA Tour, I thought I'd start a topic about what you do during the so-called off-season to get your golf fix? Do you just simply take a break and pick up interest again in January? Are you a real junkie and follow all the smaller Fall tournaments, Q-school, and/or made-for TV events?

I try to keep up by reading about whatever event is taking place and I will probably follow the President's Cup fairly closely. I also would love to get out and play some golf. Love fall golf here in the mid-Atlantic.

Whatever you do, I hope you all enjoy the off-season.
