Perform Better Golf Right In Your Home

To perform better golf, you need to take a different approach. I have seen and heard time after time how much money golfers will spend in hopes to perform better golf. But according to statistics, the average USGA Handicap hasn't gone down in over 30 years!

I have researched the golf improvement market for over a decade now and am very disappointed. There are major companies who are making a TON of money off desperate golfers.

The approach that has proven successful for the past 5 years (with my clients) is the 'physical approach' to perform better golf. What I mean by this is working on your physical limitations to perform better golf.

By training your BODY, not buying more equipment or taking more lessons you will play better. It is your BODY that plays the game, so focus on it and the sky is the limit.

I have said this many times before. I want you to think of yourself as an athlete. You probably were one at some point in your life. Did you ever do a workout for that sport you participated in? I'll be the answer is yes.

Well now your sport is golf. And to perform better golf means training specific to golf. Not going into a gym and plopping down on a machine. Not working out like a body builder. But doing exercises that are very similar to your golf swing with resistance.

I want you to do exercises that will have an immediate impact on your game. That will give you the quickest return on your time and money investment. Doesn't that sound like a winner?

There are some golf fitness dvds that have come on the market lately. I've reviewed them all. Some are okay, and some are not user-friendly at all. You want to get a golf fitness dvd that is "plug-and-play". What I mean is?put it in the dvd player and the golf fitness expert takes you through the entire workout. From start to finish.

This is the most effective way to know you are doing the entire workout correctly and at the right pace. So many of the dvds now don't do this. They show you the exercises, but in no particular order or pace.

To perform better golf you need to take this approach. If you aren't a believer yet, just ask yourself if your game has improved in the last 6 months. Be honest. Has it? If not, what are you currently doing that you need to change?

I hope this article has brought to your attention the importance of golf fitness in your pursuit to perform better golf!
