Golf Fitness Tips

Play Better & Feel Better With Proven Sports Science

In this section of the site, you’ll find a wide variety of golf fitness tips, advice and sample routines.

There’s no doubt that a golf-specific fitness program can significantly improve a golfer’s performance on the course. That’s why rigorous training regimes are the norm rather than the exception amongst the game’s top players.

But what about golf fitness for the rest of us?

If you’re like most club-level golfers, you’d like to hit to the ball further, improve your consistency, lower your scores and generally feel better on and off the golf course. A suitable exercise program can achieve all those things…

But at the same time you probably don’t have the time, or inclination, to spend 2 hours every day at the gym. So can a more ‘lifestyle-friendly’ golf fitness program benefit your game?

The answer is yes. And the golf fitness tips, exercises and sample training programs within this section of the site are aimed predominantly at everyday golfers.

A number of scientific studies have been carried out on golfers of different abilities and different age groups. Their findings show that the right combination of strength and flexibility exercises can increase both shot distance and accuracy, the net result being lower scores.

The tips and guidelines below are based on this proven Sports Science – rather than the latest fitness craze thought up by an over-enthusiastic Fitness Instructor.
