Have you been working on those swing changes but aren’t getting the results you are looking for?
Often times we work with an instructor, or attempt to implement changes on our own. You may be spending tireless hours on the practice tee, or in front of video analysis but can’t seem to make the change you know that you need.
It isn’t uncommon for swing changes or attempts at optimal mechanics are physically difficult or even uncomfortable.
If you are suffering from common swing flaws such as excessive sway, slide, chicken winging, or early extension you may be struggling with restrictions in mobility of the neck, back, pelvis, hips, rib cage and/or shoulders.
The most important bio-mechanical contributor of consistent distance and accuracy is the kinematic sequence of the golf swing. Unfortunately, if you are physically restricted or limited by strength deficits, it will be difficult if not impossible to find your ideal swing.
The good news is that with some appropriate guidance and training you can add flexibility and power to your game in a relatively short period of time.
Working with a physiotherapist trained in bio-mechanical correction, customized strengthening and mobility techniques, and a working knowledge of rotational athletics can add distance to your drives, consistent accuracy and result in lower scores.
Are you ready to take your game to the next level?
If you are like me, and always looking to change your swing and improve your game, but you are tired of spending money on swing training devices, maybe it is time to refine your mind and your body to make the gains for which you are striving.
Don’t wait to make the change. Contact a physiotherapist trained by the Titleist Performance Institute (TPI), and the Postural Restoration Institute (PRI) for an evaluation of your body’s limitations and where you can start making changes that will benefit your game quickly.
