Itís Your Body That Will Improve Your Golf Game

Itís Your Body That Will Improve Your Golf Game

Your body and golf go hand-in-hand. You can work on your golf, but if you donít address your bodyís limitations, your game will not improve. I say this very strongly!

The exact opposite will give you similar results.You can work on your body, but if you donít work on your golf game you will not improve as much; although your body will naturally be able to make a better swing.

In many of the articles I write both for the web and for my golf performance sites, I mention the body as the ďthe golfing machineĒ. You may have heard this term before, but I truly feel like it is profound.

Your body dictates your golfing ability!

You can get by on natural ability, but after a while, aging sets in and you lose strength, flexibility, coordination, stability and much more. When this happens, your game starts to slip.

The only way to stop this slide is to work on your machine. Iím definitely not saying to stop practicing. But practice alone will not get it done!

Focus on the limitations your body has and your golf game will transform. You will feel like you can make a bigger, more powerful swing; but with precision and accuracy. The net result is a big reduction in scores and mishit, and a huge improvement in distance and accuracy.

You are a golfing athlete and all athletes condition their bodyís specific to their sport. Why wouldnít you do the same? The more you focus on the physical demands the swing puts on your body, the better youíll be able to understand the importance of golf training.

Are you competitive with yourself on the course? If you are, donít you want to make a change that will quickly improve your game? If so, youíve got to start thinking like a high-level golfing athlete. Donít even tell any of your golfing buddies your thinking.

Just take care of business and let your golf do the talking for you!

Youíll soon realize itís been your body keeping you from a much better golf game.
