Why Taking A Golf Training Program Isn't Always The Answer - Part
Let's continue our discussion.....on our golf training program
Now, the best and last 2 simple & proven ways to improve your golf
on the course.
Finding out your physical and mental limitations is the first step
towards a lifelong better game of golf. Once you find out what s
keeping you (which is quite easy) from making that perfect swing,
you can set up a game plan to improve it.
It may be a flexibility or a matter of adjustment or changes and
even mental issues, or it may be a strength issue. But either way,
you ve got to find out what it is. Even veteran golfers are not
spared from this. Is golf training program really works?
The most common issue (especially for the older golfer) is flexibility.
Not being able to rotate your body fully on the backswing (this
may even injure your back or spine) , creating that power and torque
for maximum clubhead speed.
If your back swing is cut short, you may even LOSE yards on your
drives! And I say again; no amount of lessons or hitting balls will
make that any better. You ve got to do specific golf stretches to
improve this limitation.
Now on the other side of these limiting factors is strength, specific
to golf. And one of the most common limitations is weak the back
of the upper leg. The role of this is critical. It allows you to
maintain your golf posture throughout the swing and for 18 holes.
It prevents undo strain on your lower back. And can give you a steady,
comfortable position while putting.
If your hamstrings are weak, I can almost say with certainty, you
ve got some low-back pain or injury. This is prevalent in older
golfers and even the younger ones too.
Back pain is the number reason to keep a golfer from playing his/her
best. Have you ever walked off the course with your back in pain?
I m sure at one time or another you have. You can't just enjoy this
game of golf, if your hamstring is weak. So, is there a solution
for this without injuring your back and up your golf level.
Now do you think hitting more balls or taking more lessons will
improve this? I think you know the answer.
