As many states are in the process of re-opening, golf is expanding its reach as one of a limited number of outdoor activities sanctioned by health and government officials. In Maryland, for example, most golf courses are already booked for weeks! And many golf courses are seeing not just avid golfers, but also golfers who have not played in a while, youth golfers, and even new golfers and families.
Whether you are an avid golfer, someone getting back into the game after many years, or someone who’s completely new to the sport, there’s one thing that will always be on your mind - how can I improve my game?
Full disclosure - I am not a pro golfer by any means. However, as a human movement professional, I love solving problems involving movement health, movement competency, and movement capacity. So, the question now is, how do we approach golf from a human movement perspective?
