Is this you? “It always takes 3-4 holes for my back to warm up.” “After 9 holes, my shoulder aches.” “My swing is so stiff!” I got you covered. We need to get you moving better. Below, I have a free 5 minute warm-up that will stop you from having any of those excuses above. All I ask is that give you it a try. The problem is that people think they need to watch a swing video on YouTube to fix their issue instead of improving their movement. Don't get me wrong, your swing most likely needs work like the...

Almost every athlete that sits in my office to lay out their goals has “speed” listed somewhere. Makes sense.  In most cases the faster you are, the better you’ll play at your respective sport. Then the athlete will tell me all about what they have been doing to work on getting faster. This usually consists of just endless wind sprints with no direction in mind.

So, hopefully the risk...

I feel like a broken record when I tell people if you want to be a better golfer, you need to workout like a golfer. Oftentimes when I ask golfers what their fitness regime looks like they go on to tell me about a bodybuilding program they saw on TikTok.  Yes, I am happy they are doing something, but maybe that something is doing more harm than good for them.  Why you ask? Bodybuilding programs are geared towards building lean muscle mass that is aesthetically pleasing. Hence why they go on stage and are judged by the way they look. Their...

Each time I coach golfers, I start out by asking, “What is your biggest limiting factor in your golf game?” In all of my years, not one person has ever mentioned their physical ability being their deficit and unknowingly, it most likely is a major disadvantage in their game. So, they are going to the range trying to recreate that slice fixer tip they saw on youtube, but really should be working on hip mobility and that just may be the fix.   In this article, I will walk you through two screenings you can do on yourself. Some of...
