“Kinetic linkage of rhythm, timing and leverage to magnify striking power”, Earl Woods (Tiger wood’s father and early coach)
Nearly every professional golfer takes part in physical training, however a number of players are now taking to this fresh new fitness approach, mainly because it fits so well with the core physical skills needed by golfers. Phil Mickelson, who was a former student of Jackie Burke Jr., is one player who benefited from some of these skills. Mickelson rejuvenated his career when he started his new martial arts fitness regime in 2005. Burke, who taught Judo and Tae Kwon Do, implemented key principles into Mickelson’s training.
“Rory’s never lacked confidence, but there’s a lot of scientific evidence that links being strong and physically fit with self-confidence and psychological well being. Those are great things to have on the course” Steve Mcgregor (Rory McIlroy’s trainer)
