Michael Edwards wants to help golfers improve their game. The physical therapist runs Shore Golf Performance in Cranston, R.I. He treats golfers and helps them understand how their body moves when they swing a golf club and then develops a plan to help them play better golf and get stronger and more mobile.
Born and raised in North Carolina, Edwards moved to Cranston in 2022 and opened his business. There was a bit of kismet involved, as Edwards met PGA teaching pro Todd Campbell, who had just landed a spot at Cranston CC. The course built Campbell an indoor space to teach, fitted out with garage doors that open onto the driving range.
Edwards snapped up the second room in the small building. It’s created a dynamic where a golfer can see Edwards to get their body right for golf and then they can head next store and get their swing dialed in with the knowledge of how their body moves.
Over the years, Edwards has worked with elite professionals on the Korn Ferry tour, high-level amateurs like Bobby Leopold, and weekend warrior amateurs. Edwards believes that everyone should have access to this type of support and knowledge to play better golf and live pain free.
