Golf Training

Whether you are a casual golfer or a professional, we all have our pre-round routine. Some of us like to get to the course early to practice on the putting green, and some of us are running to the first hole as our tee time is starting. What we don’t often think about is what we are doing, or not doing, before our round and how it is affecting our play. How many of us are actually stretching before we tee off?

Some mild tightness, or worse, sharp shooting pain, can certainly affect the way you move enough to throw

Golf is a sport, but many people don’t think of it as being “athletic”. Whether it’s because there’s no running involved, or because many people indulge in adult beverages while playing, for some reason it’s not viewed in the same light as many other sports. For those who really want to improve though, they should view it as any other athlete would look at their sport. For many people the cool weather comes around and they immediately put their clubs in the basement, not to be seen again until their
