Power: The Key to Elite Golf (and tennis, and baseball, and lacrosse….)

Two weeks ago Sam and I were talking golf, and it reminded me of a conversation I had in 2016 with Dr. Greg Rose at the Titleist Performance Institute.  Dr. Rose is an engineer turned chiropractor, and now runs TPI in Southern California where he does research and trains those golfers under endorsement contracts with Titleist.   We talked about how important power (strength multiplied by speed) is to golf, and he pointed out that in 2015:

  • the top 4 players in the World Golf Rankings were in the top 8 in driving distance
  • 7 of the 8 most accurate drivers LOST their tour cards the following year (the one that didn’t was Jordan Speith)
  • the average ball speed on the PGA Tour increased every year from 2009 (167 mph) for to 171 in 2013.

Here’s a video of Greg talking about driving and power on the golf channel, if you’re interested.  He’s a really bright guy, and if you are interested in golf, you’ll enjoy it.

​At SPORTFIT we focus on building the rotational power key to a long drive, a fast pitch, or explosive strike primarily through our med ball throws, but other supporting exercises are also important.  For example, our speed and jump training builds explosiveness in the legs, which is where all of the above movements begin.  The weight training builds the strength component necessary in the upper and lower extremities, and the core strengthening keeps the lower back safe while making sure that none of the energy created by the legs ‘leaks out’ on its way to the arms, club, or racket.
