What are the benefits?
Golf fitness training is not reserved for the young. Golfers aged 55-75 have also benefited from strength and flexibility training – both in terms of general health parameters and their performance on the course.
For the more serious golfers, conditioning can no longer be seen as an unnecessary add-on to their practice routine. Just as a committed amateur athlete spends time on their technique AND their fitness, so must the golfer who demands to be the best they can. There is a caveat however…
In order to improve performance in any sport, training must be specific to the demands of the game involved. Of the few golfers who do appreciate the importance of physical training, most still make the mistake of following a general fitness routine.
If you want hit every shot consistently further you need to take a different approach. Not a more complicated approach. Not a more time-consuming approach. A more golf-specific approach.
