Golf is an interesting sport that requires the coordination of all parts of the body. Hitting a golf ball only requires a small amount of time, however, in that small amount of time the golfer’s body will undergo massive amounts of stress. Because of this, injuries occur on a regular basis.
A fluid swing requires maximum-joint-function throughout the body. Any reduction of joint function, will not only increase the chances of injury but will also change the characteristics of the golfer’s swing, which will contribute to a loss of swing velocity and improper impact position.
Many golfers overlook the obvious, they eagerly spend thousands of dollars on clubs and lessons, yet they ignore the most important component in their game, their body and its ability to move properly.
As we age “all” of our golf swings change. Anyone that follows golf knows that Tiger Woods has been relentlessly working on a new swing. Yes, even Tiger is susceptible to the aging process. His mechanics are amazing but they are changing.
