If you go up and down the practice tee of any pro or college golf tournament these days, one thing is unmistakably clear.
You see athletes playing golf.
Golf fitness in the Tiger Woods-and-beyond era has become an indisputable part of the golf success equation. A dedicated, year-round relationship with a golf-specific trainer is a must-have for every serious tournament player.
Over the past several years, this golf fitness phenomenon has spread to the junior golfer and high school ranks. The rationale is clear. Courses are longer and competition is stronger. Juniors are looking for speed and strength, sooner rather than later. Distance is king. In order to compete effectively in tournaments and to attract college recruiters, young golfers are jumping on board the golf fitness train. Waiting for college before starting your dedication to golf fitness is proving to be too late.
