Golf Fitness- Building Durability

Posted by & filed under .

This past weekend we got see Tiger return to golf. There’s almost a zero chance I would have watched it if he wasn’t playing. Rickie Fowler’s 61 and front nine 28 just don’t really seem to matter. The Big Cat is back and he looked good. Rusty, but good. The most impressive thing that I […]

Golf Fitness Should Not be Conditional

Posted by & filed under .

As I am writing this, Tiger is 3 hours away from returning to competition. The golf world is buzzing for his return. I am excited to see him back out there. I know some people are just writing him off. Either way he is good for golf. All of the coverage this week is surrounding […]

Why Get an Assessment?

Posted by & filed under , .

One of the biggest things to change in golf fitness, recently, is the use of movement screens and assessments. TPI is on the forefront of this and they do a really good job with their certifications. Assessments also seem to be one of the more debated topics in fitness. The FMS is one of those […]

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 […]
