Golf Biomechanic

Why condition for golf?

Amateur golfers achieve approximately 90% of their peak muscle activity when driving a golf ball. This is the same lifting intensity as picking up a weight that can only be lifted four times before total fatigue. Yet golfers fail to consider that they strike the ball an average of 30 to 40 times a game with comparable intensity. This level of exertion and muscle activation equates golf with such sports as football, hockey and martial arts. The difference is that other athletes outside of golf include conditioning as an integral part of their preparation for such physical demands

Why use an Oxford Golf Biomechanic?

A question to consider for older golfers. What do you think begins to cause a deterioration in your game first? Your skill level, or your bodies ability to complete the movement requirement of the golf swing?!

Golf is a highly athletic event

To put this in perspective, consider that the head a golf club can travel over 100 miles per hour, an effort comparable to pitching a baseball.

Conditioning the body with a Golf Biomechanic when these demands are placed on the body starts to become an obvious requirement.
