Fit for golf is a term you should have heard by now.  It’s all over the television and now becoming mainstream with amateur golfers wanting to reach their full potential.  Golfers are now realizing there is a fitness component to golf, and are seriously considering getting fit for golf.

It may sound like an oxymoron, but tell me if you’ve ever hurt yourself playing golf.  How about a strained lower back?  Or, a sore shoulder after playing?  The list of injuries from swinging a golf club is a mile long. 

This would defend the point that getting fit for golf is NOT an oxymoron, but in fact a necessity, if you want to end the frustration, and play like you know you are capable of.

Golf is a ‘physical’ game that puts a tremendous amount of stress on the body.  Muscles, ligaments, tendons and joints pay the price if your golf muscles are not strong enough to withstand the forces from swing at up to 100 mph.

Think about that!

You swing a 3 foot implement at up to 100 mph, while maintaining a very dynamic body position.  That’s physically impossible unless you’ve got the muscular strength and flexibility to achieve these swing mechanics.

Look at putting!  How often have you practiced for only 5-10 minutes and your lower back was killing you?  You know what the culprit was?  Tight hamstrings and a weak lower back.  Golfers who are fit for golf don’t experience this.  They can practice putting for an hour and not feel it.

Wouldn’t that be nice?

How about hitting out of deep rough?  How many times did you leave the ball right where it was when you started?  Or if you did advance it, your wrist was killing you after that?

This would not happen if your were fit for golf!

You’ve got to take a look at the facts!  Golf is ‘physical’.  Golf takes a tremendous amount of strength and flexibility.  Golf causes injuries to body’s that are out of shape.  Golf is frustrating when you are the shortest hitter in your foursome.  Golf can make you crazy!

Stop the insanity…and get Fit For Golf!
