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 […]

Improving Power Training for Golf

How do You Perform When the Lights are On?

I have a couple random thoughts from the last week. Doctors are no different than any other profession Just like any job you can have, someone is going to be good at their job and someone else isn’t. Doctors are not exempt from this rule. I absolutely respect the hell out of the process it […]

Golf Fitness: Dissociation or Sequencing?

I learned a lot when I took the TPI level 1 course a few years back. It was really my first venture into the golf world. I spent a lot of time in the fitness realm before that but this was the first exposure to the golf side. For a golf pro, the info may […]
