How To Create Better Shoulder Stability For Golf

Shoulder stability is essential to packing a powerful golf swing. Without stability, flexibility and strength in your shoulders your swing is not going to be as efficient or effective as it could be. In fact, you can wind up with shoulder injuries that not only hurt your swing, but literally hurt your shoulders.

Becoming an Ageless Golfer

It happens to all of us, even though we do not want to admit it. The reality is we all get older. Some of you may already know what I am talking about, and others may have yet to experience the phenomenon of aging. Those of you who are reading this article and are no longer ?spring chickens? get my drift. Even if you are one of the lucky ones, still young, let me fill you in on what happens as the body gets a few miles on it.

Balance Your Checkbook and Golf Swing

We all search for it. Balance in our daily lives. Balance while riding a bike. Politicians are always debating a balanced budget in Washington, and most of us could use a little balance in our checkbooks. Balance is a term used in golf quite often as well. It?s a ?buzzword? and almost a cliché when it comes to the golf swing. I am sure you have heard numerous times from swing coaches that ?you have to stay balanced when swinging your club.? Others phrases that I hear when we talk about golf and balance are the following: ?When it comes to a sand shot, dig your feet into the stand so you can stay balanced,? ?If the ball is on an uphill lie and above your feet, make sure you swing through the ball, and stayed balanced,? and ?Stay balanced when hitting the driver and get to the finish position in perfect balance.? The list could go on and on, and I am sure all of you could probably add to the short list above.

A Good Swing Starts with a Strong Base of Support

A good golf swing starts with a strong base of support (hips, pelvis and lumbar spine). A highly conditioned base of support will provide stability throughout the swing and allow forces to be effectively transferred from the legs through the hips to the upper body to produce optimal power and control. A strong base helps protect the joints and other supporting tissues against the strong compression, shear and torsion forces that occur during the golf swing. Unfortunately, there are a number of factors that predispose the golfer to developing poor postural patterns and muscle imbalance that result in a weak base of support.

Fire da Bum!

In the early 50s, long before we were desensitized by today?s special effects, there was a movie called "The Thing". This black and white flicker took place on the North Pole. Some explorers/scientists found a frozen man (monster) while wandering around outside doing what explorer/scientists do.
