Appreciating Your Core Golf Strength Will Improve Your Game
The core golf strength, unknown to many enthusiasts of the game is the conditioning and strengthening of the muscles in your body, which you use to play golf. The weaker and unprepared this core golf strength is, the weaker your game of golf will be.
But let us explain why this should be the core golf strength of any player, whether amateur or professional. The game of golf involves extremely unnatural movements for the human body. This is one of the reasons why the golf swing is so difficult to master.
It is simply because even as you try you best to get your swing right, the natural; tendencies of your body and the muscles is against your efforts.
It therefore makes a lot of sense to exercise and condition those muscles because as you strengthen them to deal with the golf swing for example, the movement will come more naturally to you. The inevitable result is that your golf game will improve dramatically.
And it will all be because of your respect for the core golf strength.
Many golfers believe that the core golf strength is something else. Maybe swing technique, or even experience. The result is that their golf game gets more frustrating by the day as they struggle to work on the wrong core golf strength that will end up having very little impact if any, on the quality of their game.
The other reason the real core golf strength is shunned or ignored by most is the fact that many amateur golfers dread the mere thought of exercise. The thought of dripping sweat and rigorous exercise is terrifying to many who have taken to this so-called gentleman's game.
So terrifying that they hardly bother to find out the details about the nature of the exercises or why senior citizens with back problems manage them so well that they sometimes even end up eliminating some nagging physical pains like persistent back pains.
Those are some of the reasons why this core golf strength remains undiscovered by many.

Putting and My Aching Back!
I am guessing that all of us can relate to the title of this article. I am sure you have bent over for that 4 footer (can't give you that 4 footer, sorry), and felt that lower back feel tired, sore, painful or tight. Regardless of what the word is, you feel it! I also am guessing that some of you have changed to belly putters for the reason that your back hurts when you putt! Even if you are one of those players that has switched to a belly putter because of back pain, that pain is an indicator of something else going on within the body. I am sure we could use the excuse: I am older now and that is just what happens; or maybe we use the "cave man excuse": humans just were meant to walk on two legs! Regardless of what excuse you use, there is a reason and solution to solve those lower back problems. Even if you don't realize it, the lower back that you feel when putting is also affecting the other parts of your game (i.e. driving, long irons, chipping, pitching, etc.) This article has the goal of explaining why your back is sore when you putt and what we can do to help alleviate the problem.
2005 US Open Winner - What Does It Take?
As the 2005 US Open began in Pinehurst, NC, the name Michael Campbell wasn't being touted as likely to finish first. Michael had attempted in four previous Opens and had not survived the weekend. Fortunately his final round of 1 under 69 gave him the two stroke lead he needed to earn a victory over the top ranked player in the world, Tiger Woods. How did Michael keep his composure with Woods making a charge on the back nine? Was it sheer confidence? Skill? Just what was the winning combination for Campbell?

It is a simple question yet one that is not easy to answer. I imagine that most of you come up with some definition that is something to the effect of "Flexibility is stretching, right?"

Golf Equipment ? The Most Expensive Is Not Always Correct For You
The essentials of golf begin with the clubs you choose. Shopping on the Internet will save you time and money but choosing can be difficult, as there seems to be endless options. From our work with different golfing web sites we have seen sales for golf clubs dramatically increase in the past two years but do people really know what they are buying? I think the answer to this is yes if you have been playing for a few years and no if you are a total beginner. Some people starting out in the golf world have more money than sense. At the start of every golfing year (generally in March) you see new members on the first tee with thousands of dollars worth of equipment beside them and the golfing skills of a squirrel.
