Golf is an international sport played by those of all body shapes,
all cultures, all ages. With such a vast array of books, instructional
DVD's, golf training aids and instructional methods, just how does
one find THE best golf technique.
My view is that the best golf technique is one that suits your:
Natural healthy body shape - not your overweight
one, or under developed one. Using golf
biomechanics to leverage your natural body composition to get
a controlled energy explosion
- playing tennis twice a week does not make you golf fit.
The golf swing is an explosive
movement, and attempting to use the body in ways for which it has
not been adequately prepared through a regular golf
fitness exercise program will most likely result in injury and
loss of motivation.
Your current golf ability - trying to achieve
the Pro Move when you have just started playing golf can not only
lead to continued dissappointment by trying to run before you walk,
but may also risk damaging your tendons by overstressing a body
that is not golf fit.
Your desired golf ability - why spend hours and
dollars on golf lessons to perfect an otherwise average golf swing
if you only plan to play at a mid 20's handicap once a month.
Golf playing routine - do you play twice a week,
twice a month or twice a year
Golf budget - there is no point getting extensive
golf lessons, if you then cannot afford to go out and play the game.
Your budget will also determine the quality and expense of your
golf equipment - golf
clubs, golf balls, training aids etc
Time available - many of us have to sneak golf
between our home, work and family commitments. You may find that
developing your golf technique through a home golf
fitness program and use of golf
training aids is a more acceptable option than attending golf
coaching schools and driving ranges.
So, golf technique is NOT just about the final outcome of how you
swing a golf club, its also about how you choose the journey to
becoming the best golfer for you!
