How Golf Training Can Transform Your Game
Golf training has been brought to the masses thanks to Tiger Woods, Annika Sorenstam, Larry Nelson and now by the Number One player in the world?Vijay Singh. Vijay is a golf training machine. His personal trainer travels with him on tour and works him out all the way through the week. Vijay has his golf training routine down to a science and doesn't deviate even a fraction.
When Annika implemented a golf training program she shot a 59 that year and dominated the LPGA. No one was even close. She was the one to beat every week. She even went as far as saying she needed to challenge herself, so she played in a men's PGA event. And almost made the cut!
Now club pro's, tournament golfers, seniors and even juniors are catching on. They are now realizing that it's the BODY that's keeping them from a great game. Work on your body with some easy-to-use, golf specific stretches and strength exercises and your swing will come to "life".
Doesn't it make sense?
Making a powerful backswing, with tons of stored energy ready to blast your ball WAY down the fairway!
I've seen golfers of all ages dramatically transform their game. And it didn't' take years to accomplish, or hitting thousands of golf balls. If you keep doing what you're doing, you'll keep getting what you get.
Have you heard that phrase before?
It's very true and so easy to stay in this rut. But if you're tired of the frustration and want to finally capitalize on your potential, then a golf training program is your answer.
If the pro's are doing it and seeing great results, that should reassure you that it's the right approach. In your mind, you should see a golf athlete. And like all other athletes, they train for their sport. Why wouldn't you.
Your golf training program should incorporate strength, flexibility and even endurance training. Doing a flexibility program without incorporating a strength program won't get you the results you're looking for. A combination of the two is best.
It's time to put metal to the floor and make it happen!

Taking The Confusion Out Of Golf Ball Compression
Compression, in terms of a golf ball, is probably the most understood aspect of golf ball technology.

Facts and Fallacies of Strength Training for Golf
Various aspects of golf training have expanded rapidly, but one area of development that has caught on somewhat slowly is golf-specific strength training. Not until very recently has this specific need been addressed. As with many things, it started at the top with pros like Tiger Woods and David Duval and began to trickle down to the masses over time. Unfortunately, many golfers still live under the old assumption that strength training is detrimental. The truth is that the days of simply practicing and playing to make yourself a stronger and better golfer are from a bygone era. I am not trying to diminish the fact that ultimately golf skills are the most important aspect of golf, but improving your swing performance will only get you so far. If you want to develop into the best player you can be, you better get with the program-a strength training program, that is.
5 Keys to Mental Toughness for Junior Golfers
If you have any interest in seeing first hand the impact that mental toughness has on sport performance, go no further than the PGA or LPGA Qualifying tournaments or "Q-School".

Mental Training for Golfers: Attitudes that Sabotage Commitment
Plateaus in performance sometimes occur when you don't see any measurable improvement in score even though you are working hard. "I'm practicing more than ever, but I don't seem to be shooting better scores," many players tell me in frustration. Thus, when you don't see gains in performance or have a coach pushing you daily, it is difficult for golfers to stay committed to their training. In this issue of Peak Performance Golf Insights, I discuss how golfers lose or sabotage their own commitment to training and ideas for how to increase commitment.

Chances are, if you're just starting out, you haven't decided to apply to a fancy country club yet so you can play their outstanding course, right? That's a very good idea, because there are probably several public golf courses close to you that are just as terrific and much cheaper too! Do you think Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson started out on private courses? I doubt it! Even though we can't all have the status of a Woods or Mickelson, we can make sure that we don't have an argument with our wallet every time we want to hit the course for some practice time on the driving range or to get in a leisurely round.
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.
