Why is it that the vast majority of golfers will never have a handicap lower than 18? Mostly, it is because that the vast majority of golfers are not fit for golf.
Generally, it is not because these golfers have a swing defect or some other fault in their game, as they spend a lot of money on things like swing training aids, grip training aids, and alignment aids.
There is an area of golf that the majority completely ignores and that is getting fit for golf. Training for golf doesn''t mean using the aforementioned training aids, it means getting in shape so that you can play better golf.
Specifically, to take your golf to the next level, you have to work your golf specific muscles. Unless you are a professional golfer, you have to get as much distance of the tee as possible.
Why? For the casual golfer, the closer you are to the green, the more chance you will have of landing your ball on the green near the hole. Then you will have more chance of making a par or better.
If you only hit your drives 200 yards or less, you will always be faced with a long iron into the green. Now I don''t know about you, but I find it difficult to consistently get long irons anywhere near the hole. I would much rather be faced with a 7 iron and above for my second shot on a par 4.
So, you need more distance of the tee, therefore you need more power. Most casual golfers equate more power to trying to hit the ball as hard as they can. This generally results in wild shots going every which direction except straight down the fairway.
More distance equals a faster swing which comes from being able to exert more (controllable and effortless) power. More power can only come from having worked your golf specific muscles; you have to train for golf as you would have to train for any sport.
So, let''s see how you can improve your game by training for golf. There are three types of training, which a lot of people ask about, and this article will discuss the three areas of training that you can do depending on your physical makeup.
Fitness Training For Golf
This is the most common type of training that is suitable for nearly all types of golfers. It can be done by casual golfers, seniors, athletes, women, beginners, and fit men. Now, you might be an athlete or a fit man, but that doesn''t necessarily make you fit for golf.

How long it takes you to lose 10lbs depends on your body and the amount of work you put in. It is safe to lose about 2-3 pounds a week for a person who is 10 lbs over weight and is in good health. I dont know if I would cut my calorie intake to 1500, it all depends on how much you eat now and what your activity level will be. To know what kind of diet you should be on, one would have to know mor...nds before December.
I know this is the womens section, so sorry for intruding! I meant to click on wine to find some info on wineries in the el paso area, but saw this question and thought I would try to help. I worked at a gym for two years during college and helped many people accomplish their fitness goals. I also suggest checking out some fitness websites for ideas as well. Good Luck
