We have some fantastic ambassadors for the strength and conditioning industry in golf
In the lead up to the masters golfers and trainers have been incredibly honest and open about their training programs. Check out the videos below for some great examples of the training methods being employed by tour players.
This is great for our industry and getting more information about what constitutes proper effect golf fitness training. Also its amazing to see what great shape everyone seems to have got into this off-seaon…anybody else notice what great shape Mickelson has got himself into!
Golf is a power game
To steal a quote from rory himself “Golf has become a power game, it really has. There’s obviously skill involved, but the longer you can hit it, the more advantage you’re going to have.”
To cite a few examples from the masters Jason Day hits 8 iron into 16 on day 1, almost all the field are now hitting irons into 13 and 15, with 8 irons into 13 by Dustin Johnson and Rory McIlroy on all 4 days. The importance of this evidenced by the amount of eagles we saw on the par 5’s, I mean Johnson, had 3 in one round for god sake! (The interesting thing about this from my point of view is if you had to name some of the best athletes in golf, they also be the same names as the guys dominating the par 5s this past week)
No success is really overnight
Jordan Spieth is a worker! Whilst it might appear his rise to the top has been pretty meteoric Jordan has been putting in the hard yards with Damon Goddard and the folks at AMPD Golf Fitness or years. I thoroughly recommend you check them out on fb!
