Golf Fitness Made Simple

Posted by & filed under .

It has been over 2 weeks since I have played golf. That is a long stretch but not out of the ordinary for this time of year. Between work and the weather, it is becoming difficult to get out there. I always joke that 40 degrees in March is way different than November. Our golfers […]

Getting the Most Out of the Golf Offseason

Posted by & filed under .

We have turned the clocks back and the weather is getting colder. I did get to play on Friday which was in the 70’s but this morning was a nice 29. Needless to say, the season is winding down. This is when planning the off season becomes important. What many golfers will do is wait […]

How Golfers Can Train Around Back Pain

Posted by & filed under .

Back pain is something that most people, let alone golfers, deal with all the time. Most recommendations are to do nothing. A lot of times this can be a good way to see if the issue is a real issue. I always joke that you should wait two weeks before calling your doctor because it […]

Golfer’s Need for Speed

Posted by & filed under .

There is one thing that I have consistently seen among golfers who hit the ball far and those who do not. Golfers that lack distance off of the tee seem to have a longer, slower swing. This makes sense since the slower the swing, the slower the club head speed. Less speed = less distance. […]

Smart Strength Training for Golfers

Posted by & filed under .

This past week was probably not on many golf radars. The tournament was in Kuala Lumpur and aired on TV late at night Wed-Sat for us on the east coast. The odd time for coverage of the event and going up against football probably made for a decrease in viewers. Pat Perez won and it […]

Building Longevity in Golf

Posted by & filed under .

When golfers play more, and longer, everyone is happy. Golfers love to golf, the courses do well with more memberships/greens fees, and the retailers do well. Losing golfers does not help the game. I am not sure what other parts of the country are like but in Massachusetts there doesn’t seem to be a lack […]

Progressing the Plank for Golfers

Posted by & filed under .

Golf season appears to be winding down here in MA. I think the biggest factor is football season. A lot of people try to make plans and do things for the game on Sundays. Never mind some of us psychos are very big on Saturdays too (Go Noles). I also encountered a 38 degree morning […]

Better Nutrition for Golf

Posted by & filed under , .

Nutrition is often a hot topic this time of year. We just got finished with the summer and the holidays are coming sooner than we expect. Never mind Tom Brady’s new book has people talking. There isn’t a lot of talk in the golf world about nutrition, though. I think the general idea is that […]

How Much Flexibility Do You Need?

Posted by & filed under .

Flexibility is often a big buzz word when it comes to training. Athletes want to be flexible and train in a way that allows that to happen. How much flexibility does an athlete actually need though? The short answer is whatever they need to get in the necessary positions for their sport. If they can […]

How Golfers Can Manage Knee Pain

Posted by & filed under .

A lot of people can play golf which means that a lot can also be dealing with a number of ailments, aches, and pains. Knee pain is a big one. Many people deal with it. Heck, I am dealing with it right now. This past weekend I walked 18 holes and bombed around New Orleans […]
