C-posture drill

Golf Fitness Tip – Want more distance?  Check your posture.  Many golfers, when addressing the ball, have what is called a “C” posture or a rounding of the shoulders and a bowing or curving of the upper back.  This posture is more prevalent as we age and/or from the fact that we are sitting at our desks more so today, hunched over a computer.  A C-posture decreases the golfer’s ability to get the club back in the backswing by as much as 20 – 30%.  A reduced backswing often results in less club head speed and fewer yards down the fairway.   

Drill:  Place a club against your back with the head of the club touching the top of your head (left picture).  Get into your golf stance and see if you maintain contact with the club (middle picture).  If your head and/or upper back comes off the club (right picture), chances are you have C-posture.  Practice this drill with a mirror at your side and maintain contact with the club as you get into your golf stance.  Also, perform the exercises described in the accompanying article/video.

HOST A WORKSHOP

If your Club or organization would like to host an informative golf fitness workshop, contact Bob at bob@golfitcarolina.com or 336-509-4610.

Bob came to my club and did a hour long session on the basics of his teaching and philosophy of fitness and how it relates to the golf swing and its performance.  My members thoroughly enjoyed the hour and wanted more.  I was impressed with his content and explanation.  My members were floored with his Q&A and his personal adaptation to their issues.  I was impressed with his interaction with attendants of the seminar.  If you are looking for someone to integrate your fitness program with the golf program, Bob is the guy to do it!  We will be booking Bob to come back to our club next spring.

"Bob Forman was fabulous!  He is a great presenter who shared some extremely valuable information related to how anatomical deficiencies such as: poor posture, flexibility, and balance impact our golf swing.  He not only shared what they are and how they impact the swing, but also demonstrated exercises to help correct them."
Ellen Gregory
EWGA-Wilmington, NC chapter

“Westchester is one of the Country’s largest private clubs with a membership that has high expectations for service and performance.  Bob Forman’s seminar on golf specific fitness and flexibility was extremely well received and motivated many of my members to begin a program of evaluation, exercise and follow-ups.  I highly recommend Bob for his knowledge, energy , and ability to connect with amateurs concerning golf fitness.” 
John Kennedy, Director of Golf
Westchester CC, 
Harrison, NY

Bob has a fantastic ability to understand and combine his expertise of the physical complexities of the human body with the PGA Professional’s trained eye with respect to the complexities of the golf swing.  Bob offers a refreshing angle that most amateur and professional golfers can understand and embrace.  Many times, a golfer will have physical limitations that prevents him or her from moving the way the PGA Professional is trying to instruct.  Bob can take the golfer’s weakest physical traits and focus a training program to better overcome those obstacles and allow the golfers to ultimately improve their swing.
