It’s rare these days to find a golfer who is serious about improving their game and doesn’t recognize that value of fitness in golf performance. That said, many serious golfers are relying on self-programmed workouts rather than working with a qualified professional to improve their games.
Even athletes with strong fitness backgrounds go wrong in building their own programs because of misinformation, misconceptions or lack of knowledge. The truth is the majority of these programs just don’t work; not because of how they are executed, but because of how they are constructed. In a vacuum, the exercises they are performing aren't bad, but in the context of their strengths and weaknesses, they are unproductive and sometimes even detrimental.
