Book Image Not Available
Overview
First and foremost, ALL golfers can learn something from this book. From the high handicapper who only plays a few rounds a year down to the scratch golfer who plays a few rounds per week. This book will help any golfer get into better shape to physically and strategically perform better in each round of golf that they play. Once that foundation is established, you will be on your way to becoming more fit and efficient physically and mentally during each and every round of golf that you play.
Description
The sporting world has long since looked to fitness as a way to improve and maintain athletic performance. But it seems as if golf did not really catch on to the importance of fitness until about 15 or so years ago. It used to be looked upon as a bad idea to try to strength train and build muscle while attempting to improve your golf game. It was believed that doing so would inevitably alter your swing in some irreparable way. The belief was that there could not possibly be a way to strength train to become a top notch golfer without looking like a bodybuilder. But now we are much wiser thanks in large part to many of the younger golfers who have come onto the scene and shown just how beneficial strength training can be. You now see golfers in large numbers touting how adding strength training and conditioning to their daily routines has renewed or extended their golf careers. There is no magic pill that they are using, just simple adherence to a health and fitness protocol on a regular basis. Now it is your turn to find your golf fitness fountain of youth. The four key ingredients of fitness from a golfing perspective that you NEED to focus on are: • Flexibility / Mobility • Balance • Core Strength • Endurance Focusing on the aforementioned elements in a consistent manner will have you well on your way to developing a fitness foundation that can last the rest of your life. The definition of the word strategy is so simple yet it is probably so foreign to most of the golfers who set out to play each day. The average golfer pays a fair amount for a round, practices little, but finds it very easy to become upset when their play is below average at best. Unfortunately they were doomed to fail well before they even laced up their golf shoes for the round. We have strategies for how we plan to accomplish tasks in our everyday professions and they actually pay us for showing up. It would seem that we would be more inclined to have a plan of action for how we would like to play our round of golf especially since we are paying for and hoping to enjoy the round. Without getting too complicated, I am going to give you a few ideas on how you can make your next round not only more enjoyable but you can actually start setting benchmarks for how your game will improve in the future.
