5 great ways to improve your golf swing without going to the course

World-renowned instructor Martin Chuck and fitness guru Don Saladino's at-home drills and golf fitness exercises will get your game in shape.
Martin Chuck's new series Build a Better Game: At Home can help golfers improve efficiently, even in the off-season.

Just because it's cold, stormy or dark out, your quest to play better golf doesn't need to stop. Two new series from GolfPass take complementary approaches to arming you with the best advice for working on your game from the comfort of your home or nearest fitness center.

Martin Chuck teaches out of sunny Phoenix, but having grown up in Canada, he knows the winter golf doldrums all too well. His Build a Better Game: At Home offers a wealth of tips and drills that you can try in your living room, basement or bedroom. Working on your golf muscles in the offseason will help you regain midseason form sooner, and it will free you up to focus on taking your game to new heights in the coming season, rather than just maintaining the status quo.

Speaking of muscles, fitness guru Don Saladino has worked with everyone from elite competitive golfers to Hollywood actors. His new series, The Swing Gym, is all about using specific exercises to address particular swing flaws. It's a uniquely targeted approach to golf fitness that anyone looking to improve from home should appreciate.

Both series have much to offer, especially to off-season golfers. Take a look at these five great tips:
