How Power Play Golf Fitness Has Changed The Game
The sensational entry into the game by legendary golfer Tiger Woods, at the tender age of 20, introduced power play golf fitness into a game that had traditionally been looked at as a leisure sport where technique was much more important and necessary than any physical fitness or strength.
Never before had the world witnessed such a physically fit golfer playing at the highest levels of the game.
Research has produced some amazing revelations about Tiger Woods and power play golf fitness.
For example it is widely known that golfers can generally achieve a club head speed of 100 M.P.H. at the bottom of their swing. Research however shows that Tiger Woods can reach up to 125 M.P.H. Little wonder that he is able to achieve those amazing distances with his drives.
Apart from the technique employed, fitness and the correct conditioning of the muscles plays a huge role. This is one of the reasons why many professionals also wishing to enjoy the benefits of power play golf fitness have taken to physical work-outs and strength training.
But how effective is strength training in improving a golfer's game? In other words how effective is power play golf fitness?
Probably the best illustration of this is to examine the difference between junior golfers and adults. Actually the difference is typically strength.
I have personally worked with hundreds of junior golfers and within a very short time of doing specific strength training, their drives increased by as much as 50 yards.
That is how effective strength training can be. And when you really think about it, it is the factor that is making the difference between golfers on the course these days.
Actually there is little doubt that power play golf fitness will continue to transform the golf game for a long time to come.

Golf and Life, A Story About Your Future Success
Preparing to tee-off on the par 4 tenth. (Internal dialogue, with a whisper) "Man! I've been playing my ass off all day and just barely making par." You swing, catch a nice one, slightly off center, but very long. Unfortunately, you get a terrible bounce; the ball shoots to the left and nestles down in the spaghetti of the deep Bermuda. (Internal dialogue) "I should have a 100 yard pitch shot to the green, instead it's gonna take every thing I have just to get it there." You hit a world-class, Tiger Woods like shot out of the rough. The ball looks beautiful in the air and it's just about pin high. You yell, "Bite!" The ball nearly hits the stick, bounces twice, but unfortunately releases off the green onto the back fringe.

GPS Golf Balls Are Almost Here
As GPS technology gets better and better and smaller and smaller it will be able to be used for many things? For instance at the World Series a baseball hit into the third level will be able to be recorded by GPS as to exactly how far it was hit and it's trajectory to formulate where it would have actually landed had the stadium been flat. Thus we will be able to tell who was the greatest homerun power house of all times, perhaps even who is on steroids based on their body mass, speed of pitch, GPS data and 'haptics' (body movement and form). Wouldn't it be cool to be watching the World Series on TV and instant information about a homerun appearing on the bottom of the screen? Sounds like a whole new potential betting arena, not only how many homeruns a person will hit, but exactly how far they will hit them?
