GOLF SPECIFIC TRAINING

Regardless of current golfing ability golfers ARE athletes and the golf swing DOES require a great deal of athleticism.

power, balance, flexibility, core stability, body awareness, even
endurance... they're all physical traits that every consistent golfer
(even fair-weather players) must possess if you wish to get the best out
of your game of golf.
Across the golf industry there gizmo's and
gimmicks for increasing accuracy, shot distance and generally upping
our game. However, for all their fascinating claims and guarantees most
remain independently unproven. Compare that to a basic golf fitness
After 5 weeks of completing 5 minutes of very simple
home exercises 5 times a week, golfers increased their club-head speed
by an average of 24%. While it could be argued that club-head speed is
only one small facet of a golfer's overall game, it's highly correlated
with a player's handicap. In other words, the lower a player's handicap
is, the higher their club-head speed at impact tends to be. In fact, a
24% increase relates to a reduction of 4 shots off a golfer's handicap.
This is just one of several studies that indicate the benefits of
physical conditioning for golf.
And the benefits of golf fitness
training are not purely reserved for the young. Golfers aged 55-75 have
also benefited from strength and flexibility training - both in terms of
general health parameters as well as their performance on the golf
For the more serious golfers, golf specific physical
conditioning can no longer be seen as an unnecessary add-on to their
practice routine. Just as a committed amateur athlete spends time on
their technique AND their fitness, so must the golfer who demands to be
the best they can from their game.
However in order to improve
performance in any sport including golf, training must be specific to
the technical demands of the game involved. Of the few golfers who do
appreciate the importance of physical training, most still make the
mistake of following a general fitness routine. If you want hit every
shot, consistently further and more accurately, you need to take a
different approach... Not a more difficult approach. Not a more
time-consuming approach. Put quite simply, a more golf-specific approach.
