Posture Control and Stability
Proper posture is essential for golf performance. Without proper posture a golfer could not get into the required positions needed to consistently keep the club on its proper path. Although the golf swing looks symmetrical, one side of the body is used much differently than the other. Golfers tend to develop imbalances, which impair performance and increase injury risk. A solid golf-specific conditioning program must look for these postural imbalances. As a conditioning coach you can look at your golf athlete, right to left and front to back, comparing for signs of these imbalances. Although complete postural balance may never be achieved, minimizing the effects of these imbalances should be the focus with any golf-specific conditioning program.
