Golf Training

We all know golfers who sound like a broken record when they’re hacking up the course.  Every slice or hooked shot off the tee leads to a handful of excuses, convincing themselves it’s the equipment’s fault or some self-resolvable swing miscalculation.     Or your annoying self-proclaimed know-it-all golf buddy (we all have one) gives you the “well this is what works for me” lecture every time you’re struggling.  But neither yourself nor your friends are helping at all.  Low quality advice leads to low quality performance.  When irritated golfers have finally had

Having proper hip mobility is an important piece to any golfer’s game. A golfer who has tight hips can develop compensatory movements. If this happens, surrounding areas usually pick up the slack, resulting in injuries and increased pain. Establishing and maintaining hip mobility allows for golfers to have a smoother turn in their backswing and downswing. It also helps increase power by allowing for the optimal rotation needed during the golf swing.   Heavy resistance band stretching is a great way to develop better hip mobility. This technique will stretch both the

Each year the average golfer takes their clubs out of storage from a long hiatus and heads to the course to “dust off the cobwebs.” Some of us succeed, and for the rest of us, we never get rid of the rust. We often blame our equipment for our on-course woes, but never take into consideration WHO is swinging the club. Instead of spending unnecessary money on the newest hardware, why not dedicate time to our bodies? Having a golf fitness program is a great way to work on specific

It is no secret that rotation is an important part to anyone’s golf swing, but what are we doing to improve our rotation? When golfers want to hit the ball farther or have a more fluid swing, buying the newest club is the first thing that comes to mind. By doing so, small improvements may be noticed, but was the problem actually solved? Certain issues on the golf course may not be due to our hardware, but from some type of functional limitation. Being consistent with a proper stretching and

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? Most golfers get a few practice swings in

            When you hear the words “heavy lifting,” golf probably isn’t the first thing that comes to mind.  Have you noticed however that many professional golfers today, like Bryson DeChambeau, have a strong athletic build?  Many PGA golfers incorporate heavy weightlifting into their golf training because there is substantial carryover to performance.  For instance, because the average PGA backswing lasts around 0.75 seconds and the downswing is roughly 0.25 seconds, the amount of power PGA golfers are capable of generating in one second is incredible and does not happen by

Do I what? Disassociate from what? How am I supposed to do that?   Disassociation is a major component of athletics and golf that is often utilized without even realizing it. If you watch just about any professional sport you’ll be able to pick it out. Watch the quarterback or baseball player snap their hips to create power in their throw or put speed behind the bat. The same technique applies to golf and actually has a specific sequence that it’s supposed to follow. Disassociation is where a great deal of your

Renowned strength and conditioning coach Eric Cressey made a great post recently about the power of a good warm-up.  Cressey said “some of my best workouts came on days when the idea of training seemed impossible.  Sometimes all you need to do is walk through the doors and put yourself through a solid warm-up, then see how you feel.”  Simple message, yet so incredibly accurate.  We all have those sluggish days when we’re not fired up mentally and/or physically.  But did you ever regret a workout?  These are the workouts

Yes it’s true, if you don’t use it, you lose it. And considering the way that we go through our day to day lives most of us aren’t using it, our mobility that is. Unfortunately, the amount of time that we’re required to be at a desk or in a car beginning in our teens starts to add up over time. As the responsibilities mount, the time allotted for fitness tends to decrease. You went from being active for two to three hours each day as a teenager, to trying

We all have the same weaknesses. It may sound like a blanket statement, but in all of the assessments that I’ve done on golfers, I have found the same problems in just about everyone. We’re weak in all the wrong places, and those places are the same for everyone. Sure, there may be other areas that you need to work on, and those may be different than the problem areas that someone else has, but most golfers have the same issues with their body in relation to their swing.   When I
