Why is Golf Fitness so important?

You will learn that there is hardly a professional on any of the world tours who does not pay attention to golf fitness. The money they make demands that they use every competitive advantage available and this includes ensuring they are in the necessary physical condition for performance and longevity.

Of greater significance, though, is the amateur golfer. They are generally poorly conditioned and unskilled and this combination leads to injuries and discomfort for the player. There has been a great deal of research in recent years that has identified the typical injuries caused by poor swing biomechanics as well as the technical faults caused by physical limitations.

Course content:

The Kinematic Sequence:  You will learn the correct kinematic sequence, the movement patterns of an efficient swing and how this affects direction and distance (power).

The Majors: You will learn which of the major muscles are responsible for moving the body through the various stages of the swing.

Technical Swing Faults Have Physical Causes: We analyse the twelve most common swing faults, look at their physical causes and provide remedial exercises to rehab the limitation.

Screening: You will be taught to screen for the most common physical limitations that cause these problems. 

Injuries: The most common golf injuries are discussed and physical and technical solutions provided on how to prevent them.

Fitness Components: The primary golf fitness components of posture, mobility, stability and balance are analysed and we discuss how they relate to the fitness modules of cardio, flexibility, endurance, strength and power. A warm up routine is included.

Women, Children and Seniors: The final module of the course Highlights is the difference between special population groups and their physical requirements. Specific reference is made to Long Term Athletic Development in children, women in golf and senior golfers.
