Bigger, Faster, Stronger for Golf???

October 15, 2018

These words are not usually associated with the game of golf. But, these days such greats as Rory McIlroy are enjoying the benefits from strength training. Strength training will actually improve hip rotation and keep you from experiencing an injury.

According to a study published in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning, here are some good reasons why strength training makes sense:

• Club speed increased by 7 – 10% or the equivalent of 10 to 15 yards. Without any ill effects on accuracy

• Strength training was shown to improve muscular strength and muscular endurance which has a positive impact on golf swing consistency during an 8-hour, 36-hole round of competitive golf

• Golfers who strength trained demonstrated better putting distance control performance

• An increase in strength and flexibility allowed golfers to adopt more optimal swing mechanics

The stronger you are, gives you more control of your club and your body throughout the swing which results in more consistently struck shots. Increased consistency equals better scores.

In fact the stronger you are, translates to better performance in all sports.
