Golf is not the easiest sport to learn. Beginner golfers are mostly never sure if they should go through the effort and time of learning golf and although many golfers pick up the sport and improve on their own, taking some lessons usually pays off.

THIS IS IMPORTANT - A friend of mine just lost her grandson, a construction worker, to heat stroke this past week, up north in Connecticut no less.  Pay attention to your body out there.  You've probably read about how to measure your fluid loss by recording your body weight before and after a workout.  This is certainly something you can do; I surmise however, if you are going to that level of detail, you are beyond the scope of this blog post.  You know when you get too hot.

As many of you know, I’ve made golf fitness a key part of my practice.  For those of you who don’t know, I’ve been certified as a level one trainer by the Titleist Performance Institute for some time now.  I recently upgraded my certification from level one to level two.  That doesn’t make me a golf pro--I can’t teach golf, but I can expand the limits of what a golfer can do.  TPI’s philosophy of the swing is: “We don’t believe there is one way to swing a club; we believe there are an infinite number of ways to swing a cl

This is the fourth in a series about TPI performance tests.  These tests can help us identify weaknesses in your golf swing just by watching you perform a simple movement. This particular test is a pretty basic variation on "bend over and touch your toes," but it's very important, as it gauges mobility in your lower back and hamstrings, and it can also identify a hip problem versus a lower back or core limitation. How to perform the test:Stand with your feet together and toes pointing forward.

I always try to keep up with the latest knowledge available to fitness professionals.  This past week, I traveled across the country to upgrade my knowledge and check out the cutting edge of golf fitness.
