Golf instruction of some sort can be found almost anywhere, to one degree or another, but there is something better available if you want golf training that makes sense for nearly every person who plays the game and wants to be able to enjoy it for a lifetime. You may be one of the many people who find that as they learn the basics of their swing from a coach or instruction professional, they develop aches and pains that sometimes even seem to deter them from the game they love. Does this have to be the case? Is there no way to play good golf without requiring ice packs and a trip to the chiropractor after every other round?
Making the Golf Swing Biomechanically Friendly
Although many instructors are unaware of it, there is no rule that states that the golf swing needs to be hard on the body. However, most pros teach a swing that is based solely on the performance of the ball – the net result of the golf ball’s trajectory and location trumps everything, whether or not it places undue strain on the golfer himself. While this may get the ball where the instructor, and the student, wants it, it does nothing to guarantee enjoyment of the game, nor a particularly long association with it.
The most modern and exciting methods for teaching driving, putting, or pitching will combine technical golf knowledge with biomechanical feedback which allows the golfer to create a comfortable, pleasant, and effective swing that can be counted on time and time again. Indeed, it is not hard to imagine that part of the reason that the average golfer relapses into errors in his or her swing could simply be that their body is unable to comfortably maintain the positions required by the instructor!
Healthy Golfing Is More Fun
No matter how much someone loves to golf, it can be an impossibility if one’s swing leads to constant pain and discomfort throughout the rest of their day… which is why tackling the golf swing from the biomechanical advantage is one of the smartest decisions that golfers can make to enjoy the game for the rest of their lives. It also leads to improvements and consistency because it allows the golfer to focus on other things besides discomfort, making for a more natural-feeling swing in general.
Biomechanically oriented training truly can add enjoyment to the game of golf, as well as allowing that enjoyment to carry through into the later stages of life… especially when you are not fighting your body for every good shot on the course! Getting exercise on the course need not come at the expense of your joints or generate other physical problems.
