The Masters Golf Tournament starts in a couple of days, and it usually produces high drama, perhaps none more memorable that this:
Tiger's golf coach, Butch Harmon and Tom Kite joined forces with MedX (a state-of-the-art exercise and rehabilitation equipment manufacturer), and Dominion Fitness Concepts (a licensed program developer) to develop a program, "aimed at transforming the weekend duffer into legitimate golf athletes," according to Harmon. "Golfers don't realize how much strength and flexibility they lose through the decades if they don't actively engage in physical training. What we've been able to do is package the training regimen that impacts the golfer most dramatically. Every minute of exercise in our program should pay dividends on the course."
At Kelly’s Austin Personal Training and New Orleans Ultimate Fitness Trainers we use MedX strength and rehabilitative exercise equipment. Our clients who are golfers all report that they are definitely hitting the ball farther. I asked one golfer who was already nearly a scratch golfer, "Are you sure?" He said, "I am positive. I measure distance with a GPS system."
