Golf Fitness Magazine Scholarships

Golf Fitness Magazine along with the United States Golf Fitness (USGFA) And Professional Golf Fitness Association (PGFA) provided a 2 day Golf Fitness Seminar in Salt Lake City, Utah. This included a 8 hour session on Junior Golf Fitness and a training session with Founder and PGFA master Instructor Larry Castro.

Larry Castro explained that there is perhaps no single action in sport that requires more overall muscular strength, joint flexibility, and movement coordination than a perfectly executed golf swing.

That simply no by hitting balls at the driving range won’t increase your mobility or loosen your tight muscles. You need a daily Fluid Strength routine to find comfort on the golf course — and afterward. This can be accomplished at a PGFA Performance Center or through a certified PGFA Professional.

Today’s top young players are leaner, more muscular, and more flexible than the generation of golfers before them. Here are some focal points that were taught and that Golf Fitness clinic by the PGFA Golf Fitness Coaches.

Muscle Strength and Endurance

In golf, it is important to maintain your spine angle for a consistent swing. This means you remain bent or tilted at the hips. This requires sufficient strength and flexibility in your hamstrings, abdominals and lower back. If any of these are weak or tight, you will struggle. The result is often off-centre hits, less distance, errant shots, and post-Golf soreness in the back! Optimal Golf also demands adequate strength in your shoulders and arms, as these connect your golf club with your body’s “core”.

Muscle Balance and Agility

Recently focused in Golf Fitness Magazine article it noted that the golf swing is a motion that involves all parts of your body. Force is transferred from the ankles, to the legs, to the back, to the shoulders and through the wrists. So the smoother the transfer of force – the better. Hence it is important to build “whole-body” exercises into your program, often on unstable surfaces, to encourage “movement efficiency” and coordinated actions between muscle groups. Not only will this add a level of consistency to your game, balance and agility is a key later in life, to prevent falls and similar accidents.

Cardiovascular Fitness – Keeping Body Fat Levels Down

Without a cardio component in a golfer’s training routine, fatigue often sets in and limits the quality practice time required to make lasting changes in the golf swing. Concentration levels also drop towards the end of a game. Tired, unfit golfers practice faulty movement patterns that can take over for correct golf techniques. These improper movement patterns practiced when you are tired may influence you swing when you are fresh and rested.

Get In Shape for Golf! Get In Shape for Life!

Without regular exercise a golfer finds their strength, mobility and agility, so vital to the game, gradually diminish with age. By improving their strength, mobility, co-ordination and aerobic fitness, a golfer can expect to have better control over their body across 18 holes, thus optimizing their swing mechanics and accuracy, resulting in fewer “miss-hits” and lower scores.

So through utilizing the USGFA & PGFA Core Impact Golf and Performance Lifestyle System you will guarantee not only will you look and feel years younger… you’ll also have a good chance to beat some of the younger players you might get paired with! If you want to become certified as a PGFA instructor please visit their website for the Online certification courses and degree programs. Golf Fitness Magazine is also sponsoring 4 scholarships this year and you can apply for those online.

“Two years ago, I was amazed how inflexible I was when I first went through the series of tests at the PGFA Performance Center. One month after starting the program, I was re-tested and had made vast improvement in flexibility and strength. Since then my golf has improved, I am more confident with my body and I have not suffered any injury. I am certain the USGFA & PGFA Golf Fitness program will help golfers of all ages and abilities to reduce their score and swing the club more effectively.”

  1. Sorry that i am a bit of topic here. I am looking for technical writer who is compute savvy. I like how you put your words together. If you are interested could you email me your rates.

  2. If you miss a shot, do not think of what you did wrong. . . just go to the next shot and think of what you must do right ! This advice is far easier to give than to get you to actually do it. When you hit an errant shot, don

  3. The more you grip the golf club in the fingers, the faster you can swing the golf club and the quicker the clubface will close. If you grip the golf club further up in the palm, the slower the golf club will travel and the longer it takes for the clubface to close. If you are slicing the golf ball, you will want to move the grip more into the fingers (the base of the fingers), if you are hooking the golf ball, you will want to move the grip more into the palm area (higher up in the left hand)

  4. Talking about golf grips, When you pick up a golf club your hands are the only part of your body that touch the club. For many years the hands (grip) have often been referred to as the steering wheel of the golf swing. I don’t believe this could be more true. Gripping the golf club correctly makes playing this game a much better experience.

  10. You bring up some good points…I’d like to know what you would advise in my situation. My goal is to shed about 15 pounds in the next couple of months and finally have six pack abs. But there are so many different “systems” out there and I have no idea which one to trust. Can somebody point me towards a good plan for burning fat and packing on solid muscle?

  11. My goal right now is to get ripped six pack abs and it’s pretty challenging. Do you have some tips as far as a good six pack abs diet? I have read that egg whites, oatmeal, broccoli, blueberries and salmon are all necessary to incorporate into your diet…are there any other foods I should include to build muscle and get ripped abs?

  13. I tried real hard to play golf, and I was so bad at it they would have to check me for ticks at the end of the round because I’d spent about half the day in the woods. Jeff Foxworthy
