So what's your plan for the winter? Do you play the whole way through regardless or do the clubs go away for a while?
Any particular goals for the winter months as in a change of clubs, work on long game or putting, improve your general fitness??
Me personally, I have hardly played for the last 2 years for various reasons, usually get a game once every 4/5 weeks and I cant see that changing over the winter. Over the next few months I will be looking to try out the 718's and get fitted for a set. I'm happy with my woods, wedges and putter so wont be changing anything there (although will probably re-grip them all if I get some new irons). I will be trying to improve my general fitness and introduce some stretching! Sitting in front of a computer doesn't do me any favours!
I may also look into making myself a bit of a 'man cave' in the loft as most of my Cameron and Vokey collections are still in boxes after a house move and need to be aired. Thinking about making a bit of a putting green up there so I can keep the stroke going too.
So what's your plan for the winter?! It would be good to get a few responses to this and then look back at the start of next season to see who achieved some, if not all, of their goals!

Good question Tom, the man cave sounds good and with all your Vokey and Cameron stuff it'll need to be a big one!I'll be playing throughout the winter as we all know that the new LTS rain gear makes Every Day Playable, there's no longer any reason to stay indoors. I'll definitely be working on my swing and plan to have a monthly lesson. I need to set my wrists earlier in the takeaway and create more lag on the way down. Fitness will be high on my agenda and I've already started Pilates and core / abs classes at the gym. As I edge closer to 50 I'm hoping that will help maintain decent distance off the tee. I won't take a rushed decision on the 718's but will test them often through the winter to see if swing changes and the fitness routine have any bearing on my choice / fitting. All the best to TT members for their winter plan and let's hope for a mild & dry one. Simon
