Improve Your Golf Swing This… Winter?

Leave a Comment

From your heating bill to your work commute, there’s no reason why winter should impact anything more than it already does. For instance, when considering the possibilities of today’s technology, why should a powerful cold front ever be allowed to hamper your golf swing? With indoor golf simulator projection screens being so widely available, these days you can practice your drive in your rec room or garage, and still retain your competitive edge once spring returns.

One of the reasons why golf simulator projection technology works as well as it does is on account of the mesh onto which it’s projected. Indoor hitting enclosures that are knitted from close-fitting and/or seamless polyester or nylon textiles allow for a quality of projected image that would not otherwise be available. The relative seamlessness of the meshing allows for the simulated image to be projected fully and compellingly, so that it almost does feel as though you were standing on your favorite driving range in the heat of summer.

At Jason Mills, we weave custom-cut sports netting for golf cages of all varieties – both large and small. Our 100% polyester and 100% nylon fibers, available in any color, allow for golf fanatics and casual practitioners alike to hone their skills for all those coming tournaments and “friendly games of golf” that are just a few months away. For the seamless perfectionist inside us all, there just isn’t any better way (given the weather) of improving one’s swing.

Our Work on Behalf of the Wounded Warrior Project

It’s an inarguable fact that military service members who come home from combat overseas often return with a sense of not being fully able to re-adjust to civilian life. Whether it was a Marine who lost both of his legs to a roadside IED in Iraq, or a paratrooper who saw good friends of his die in a remote region of Afghanistan, war leaves its impressions on the body, mind, and spirit that very few of us can sustainably understand or appreciate. It is a statistical fact, for example, that veterans of foreign wars experience a much higher frequency of joblessness, homelessness, and mental illness than the national norm. But thankfully, even if one can’t fully comprehend where a service member has been or what he or she has seen, there are still ways of helping them reclaim their lives.

Wounded warrior project 25“The greatest casualty is being forgotten.” That’s the motto of the Wounded Warrior Project, a non-profit group whose primary objective is “to foster the most successful, well-adjusted generation of wounded service members in our nation’s history” – a worthy goal if ever there was one. The Wounded Warrior Project raises awareness and financial support for those who necessarily sacrificed a part of themselves.

We began providing financial contributions to the Wound Warrior Project for a whole number of reasons. Not only have we supplied lining in soldiers’ fighting uniforms to give them comfort and support during the rigors and trials of combat, but it’s our ethical duty to provide the same comfort on the home front as well, ensuring that returning soldiers will have programs available like Wounded Warrior to welcome them back safely to American shores. In addition, Jason Mills contributes directly to the Veterans of Foreign Wars as well. It’s our small (though hopefully significant) contribution to welcoming returning veterans back into the greater mesh and fabric of our society.
