The fitness components for golf are a select few, but they are critical to a golfers success. The golf swing is a physically demanding movement on the human body. It involves coordination, balance, stability, muscular strength and endurance, and dynamic sequence of motion just to name a few.
Do you think a body that is physically broken can accomplish a mechanically sound repeatable swing?
Based on the physical requirements of a mechanically good golf swing NO way! It is a physical impossibility to have a repeatable swing for 18 holes unless youve implemented the fitness components for golf within a consistent program.
When you isolate your golf swing muscles stretch and strengthen them and improve the efficiency of sequencing your motions throughout the swing you will no doubt be a massively improved golfer for the long term.
Isnt that what youre really looking for?
Im sure you dont expect to be a single digit golfer if youre currently a 20 handicap. But wouldnt it be nice to shoot in the low 80s once in a while? How about consistently? Its a reality if you take the fitness approach for golf.

I played with a gentleman the other day that had every limitation in the book. And guess what? He could barely get the ball airborne. He was SO frustrated and embarrassed. I took him aside and gave him a little pep talk.
We only had a few holes left and I told him to RELAX and let his muscles do the work with no thought at all.
Im not kidding you he parred the next hole (his first par of the day). Bogeyed the next (but he was still happy). And parred the very last hole! It was like night and day.
He had SO much tension in his swing he had no chance to created any torque and power. I gave him my card after the round an low and behold he went home and bought ALL my golf fitness dvds AND my manual.
I personally called him and spent another 30 minutes on the phone with him.
He is now on his way to implementing the fitness components for golf into his daily life.
I tell you this story to give you hope!
Dont give up!
Its not too late!
Hang in there and work on your machine. Trust me on this. Its critical you pay attention to the fitness components for golf.
