The Importance of Fitness in Golf

Here’s a look at how to keep good fitness a part of your golf game –

Perfecting Your Golf Swings and Range of Motion

A golfer’s swing and stance is an awkward position and affects the range of motion swinging the club through the air. Stretching and practice swings are key in helping to loosen the arms and motion. Spend time at one of the area’s golf schools to perfect technique and impact on your swing.

Exercises focused on increasing strength, stamina and power can not only make you physically stronger, but also increase the distance in which your ball travels too.

Back Strains and Putting

Lower back strains are common for golfers, due to putting stances. The weight of the body rests on the lower back when bending over to make that crucial putt. Core strength is key for minimizing the pressure placed on the lower back.

Think of yourself as a pendulum swinging back and forth with a rhythm and uncomplicated, easy motion. This will also help alleviate any additional stress to the lower back.

How to Stay Fit for Golf

In addition to good exercise, technique and control are key to perfecting your golf game. The TOURAcademy at World Golf Village focuses on every aspect of the game and includes instruction on quality exercises that can help improve swings and putting technique.
