A golfers edge, strength training

Posted by Mike Furci (04/15/2010 @ 10:38 am)


You would think as fanatical as golfers are, seemingly willing to do just about anything to improve their game, they would be more than interested in strength training. The fact is however, the vast majority of golfers are still not taking advantage of this inexpensive tool that would not only improve their game, but improve their health.

Golfing is not an inexpensive sport. And golfers spend hundreds to thousands of dollars on equipment alone in an effort to gain an edge on the course. The fact of the matter is, given the choice between expensive equipment and hard work coupled with strength training, I’ll take hard work coupled with strength training every time.

I you’re going to spend the money on equipment and lessons, why not make sure your physically at your best so you not only can truly take advantage of your expense, but help ensure a long career. The following is an article, “ Strength training: Is it the newest edge for golf “I wrote over a decade ago and is as pertinent today.

Golf: Improve your game and prevent injuries

Golf: Improve your game and prevent injuries

Posted by Mike Furci (04/17/2010 @ 10:05 am)


In an article I wrote 10 years ago, I addressed the importance of strength training for golfers. In this article, “ Golf: Reducing your risk of injury and improving your game .” I wanted to focus on preventing injuries and targeting the specific muscles used while playing golf.

The mechanics of a golf swing can cause a variety of injuries or aggravate previous injuries. The most common area golfers experience injuries is the lower back. Other areas golfers complain about are the shoulder, or more specifically the rotator cuff, the left elbow, and the left wrist (for right handers). Unfortunately, there is little data available about the seriousness of injuries as a result of playing golf or how to reduce them. However, if we apply what we know from other sports through research and empirical data, I have seen many golfers not only decrease their risk of injury but improve their game.
