How many times
have you started a new golf season with very high scores, short drives and
aches and pains? Am I talking to
you? Let's be honest. It happens more times than you'd
like. But why not do it different
this time? Instead of going into
deep depression that the season is over
keep golf in the top of your mind by starting a golf-specific fitness
Don't let your
clubs get dusty and forget about your game. Prepare your body in anticipation of
next spring. It's no fun to come
off the course feeling spent (in more ways than one) when you could have energy
to spare. You have between 4-6 months to greatly improve your strength,
flexibility and stamina. It would
be the wisest thing to do to improve your golf for next season.
When you begin the
season with a broken body, you're taking two steps back. Take a leap forward and prepare your
body by getting your fitness program for golf in motion. Think of it this way. What a great opportunity to get the
edge on your playing partners and win all the money. Wouldn't that get their goat?
get the chance to redeem yourself from a previous season that found you paying
out more than receiving and being the brunt of all jokes in the clubhouse after
every round. We've all been there
- but no longer right? This is the
winter to make the commitment and do it!
No excuses. No more reasons
to put it off. You may realize
it's not easy but nothing worth getting is easy.
Golf fitness is a
very popular topic these days among all the pros, teachers and even
amateurs. It's no secret that if
you get your body fitter, stronger and more flexible you will swing better and
hit longer drives that produce lower scores.
That's what we all
want right? What a feeling to be
the longest (and straightest) hitter in your group. Always hitting your approach shot last
because you were the furthest down the fairway. Those are the kinds of thoughts you
should have this winter while you're working out.
So don't let this
winter (off-season) go by without improving your body. You heard it here first. All it takes is 2-3 times a week for
30-40 minutes to dramatically improve your game. Not much of a sacrifice to play better
golf is it?
