How Important Is A Golf Fitness Program

A golf fitness program can make the difference between you optimizing your golf potential or playing the same frustrating golf you may be used to playing.

It’s no secret that the body swings the club and plays the game…so why wouldn’t you consider a golf fitness program to play your best?

A golf fitness program consists of strength, flexibility, endurance and even nutrition. But the big difference is making your golf fitness program as golf-specific as you can.

How do you do that?

Tip: So, you found the sand trap. Be considerate to the next golfer! Be sure to clean up the area after you have taken your swing from a sand trap so there are no craters left behind.

First off…just take a look at the position your body is in during the golf swing. It’s “on your feet” and in golf posture (bent at the waste, knees flexed, upper back fairly straight, ankles flexed, etc…).

Can you now see how any “physical limitation” you have will dramatically affect your ability to make a sound, repeatable golf swing?

Tip: The best way to improve your overall golf game is to improve your stance. Your position plays a large role in the distance that your shot will achieve.

So the answer is definitely starting a golf fitness program. It’s not as intimidating as you may think. It doesn’t take going to a gym. It doesn’t involve lifting heavy weights and really killing yourself. It doesn’t involve 2 hours every day of the week either.

Tip: Make sure your grip is neither too loose nor too tight. Your shots will drift to the right if you grip the golf club tightly.

A golf fitness program can be as simple as using a pair of hand weights (dumbbells), an exercise ball and exercise tubing. All very inexpensive, portable and perfect for your home or even your office.

Tip: Look for the “sweet spot” of your golf club. This refers to a point on the club that should be ideally meeting the ball for the most accuracy and speed.

You can take your exercise tubing, attach it to a door and make downswings every day of the week. This is a great exercise to sneak in at your office that will have a direct impact on the power you produce through impact.

Tip: If you fail to distribute your weight properly when swinging the ball, resulting in your center of gravity being off when you hit the ball, think more like a baseball player when practicing at the driving range. By practicing this method you’ll be better able to feel how your body must shift as you swing your club, because you are lifting the front foot a bit during the backswing and then stepping down near the completion of the swing.

Designing a “complete golf fitness program” will take a little more creativity. I would strongly recommend pursuing a qualified golf fitness trainer to put together a complete golf fitness program that addresses your specific physical limitations.

Tip: Wriggle your toes around a bit when you are in your golf stance. If your feet are easy to move, you’re leaning too far from the ball.

You don’t want to waste your time on exercises and stretches you don’t need to do. You want to focus on a balanced golf fitness program that will improve your weaknesses.

Tip: If you are shopping for a new set of clubs, it may be helpful to consult a more experienced golfer or pro shop employee. This is something you should know because a professional will be able to aid you in club selection and will know what types have been created lately.

You will be amazed how quickly your game will turn around. I’ve worked with golfers who have seen improvements in a matter of days! Literally! Their fitness had declined so much they couldn’t even get the ball airborne off the tee and within days were hitting it dozens of yards further.

What a joy to hear stories like that!
