Perhaps one of the biggest changes in the golf world today is the increased emphasis on fitness for golf. Tour professionals and amateurs alike are practicing regular fitness routines specifically targeted for golf. The results are more powerful and stable golf swings. And lower scores.
Not that long ago many people commonly assumed that strong muscles were slow muscles, and anyone who worked out with weights ran the risk of becoming a muscle incapable of swinging a golf club or having the touch for short chips, pitches, and putts. Big, strong muscles were bad in golf, or so said the conventional wisdom.
We all know how Tiger Woods is when it comes to his physical preparation. Annika Sorenstam is 14% leaner and drives 25 yards longer.
The truth is, professionals like Tiger Woods, Annika, VJ ,David Duval, and Ernie Els make the game look easy because they’re strong and fit enough to make the golf swing look simple.
Very few amateurs can devote that amount of time, energy, and money to their golf games, but that shouldn’t stop those amateurs from making positive changes in their games and personal life, by improving their strength and conditioning.
It comes down to this idea: the mechanics of a golf swing require specific levels of flexibility, balance, stability, strength, endurance and power to perform it efficiently. Regardless of how much time you work on your swing mechanics, if your body doesn’t have the golf strength to support your swing, you are limiting your potential.
We see it everyday on the range, people practicing at the range who struggle, not because of trying to get better, but because their bodies are limiting what they can do with their swing.
with limited flexibility, poor balance capabilities and low levels of strength and power.
The bottom line is that your mechanics won’t get better until you fix the body that swings the club.
The pros are all aware of the importance of golf strength, so you should be, too.
