Using A Golf Swing Trainer May Surprise You
Many amateur golfers start out playing golf for fun. Most would like to keep it that way and that is precisely the reason why the mention of a golf swing trainer, however much that would help them improve their game will not only draw loud groans but for most they will already start feeling tired at the mere thought.
That is absolutely normal. Who wants the rigors of a golf swing trainer, and the sweat and hard physicals that one imagines, must surely go with it? To be perfectly honest, nobody that I know.
Yet a golf swing trainer need not fit the image of what is on most amateur golfer's minds. More so when they hear that professionals are dramatically improving their games with the help of golf swing trainers.
The truth is that the golf swing training is not only light and very specific for the improvement of the golf swing, but for many who start, it ends up being interesting. Actually the golf swing trainer gets even more interesting when your game improves in great huge leaps and bounds.
For example the use of a simple 'medicine ball', taking turns back and through holding a 4 to 6 pound ball can make an extremely big difference to a golf swing. And the golf swing trainer need not overload you and overstrain you with this simple exercise.
Most of the medicine ball work actually involves abdominal work, which should be rotational rather than straight strenuous crunches, which will never improve your driving distance. The trick is to do rotational movements with added weight. Not heavy weight though. So don't put off the thought of using a golf swing trainer.

Ratings and Ranking Golfers
Who's the best?
Finish Your Round of Golf with Birdies
All the major tournaments, especially the U.S. Open and the PGA, are a true test of endurance. They are usually located in a part of the country where it is hot, humid and muggy. A real physical and mental drain on any golfer.
Back Fitness for Senior Golfers
Back injuries are prevalent among golfers of all ages and especially for senior golfers. Age has a way of letting us know subtly that our bodies no longer react like the good old days of 20 something. The back is one area of our body we can't afford to take for granted. Whether you suffer from minor aches and pains, mild discomfort or even general tightness, your back could be at risk as well as your game.
Play Better Longer - Peak Performance For Golf!
The golf swing is a dynamic movement that demands precise coordination of muscle contraction and relaxation, postural stability, strength, balance and body awareness. That is not to say that we cannot swing a golf club without these elements. The body does a great job in compensating for weakness and faulty movement. However, there is a downside to this compensation. The downside is inconsistency, loss of power, and muscle and joint pain. A well developed golf fitness program will help you develop the physical skills needed to consistently repeat a good golf swing, add power and distance to your shots, and help prevent, reduce and possibly even eliminate golf related pain and injury.
Stronger Abs for Golf
Everyone wants a firm midsection. For the golfer, it delivers much more than just a coveted physique. Stronger abdominal muscles convert to better balance and a more powerful swing. Your abs are part of a group of core muscles, which also includes the back and glutes. Strength in these muscles are vital to a golfer's stability and power. Stronger core muscles can also prevent injuries to the hips and back.
The Jet-Lagged Golf Swing
The golf travel industry is huge. Destination resorts such as Myrtle Beach, Hawaii, Palm Springs, and Phoenix are springing up all over. Developers are not just hoping for the Field of Dreams... build it and they will come... they know folks will come.

Fitness For Golf Is The New Gold Standard
Golf fitness has never been considered as important to one's enjoyment and success in the sport as it is today. The erroneous concepts and opinions of old (golf is not a physical game? golfers don't need to worry about fitness or nutrition?) are dying away in favor of the realization that fitness is paramount to performing well and golfers simply play better when they're in better shape.
I have chosen four of what I feel are the most common trouble shots you may encounter at The Bridges Golf Club. And "Taking the Challenge" at the Bridges involves being prepared for trouble shots.

Taking The Confusion Out Of Golf Ball Compression
