Common Golf Swing Faults
Some people may think of golf as a sport that doesn't require much physical fitness. You see some professionals on TV that look like they have never set foot in a gym. Don’t be mistaken though. The top pros in the world have an intense training regimen that keeps them physically fit and able to play at a top level for many years.
The golf swing is one of the most dynamic motions in sports. Although it is low impact, the golf swing puts an immense amount of stress on the body that can cause it to break down and become injured. Most professional golfers will injure themselves due to overuse where an amateur will injure themselves due to poor swing mechanics and limitations in fitness. In a typical season 60% of professionals and 40% of amateurs will report an injury. This is where the Titleist Performance Institute comes in to play.
