How a Woman Can Improve Golf Performance

Everything else being equals a woman cannot drive a golf bail more distance than a man, because of one reason. Men are physically stronger than women. Strength and power connect to each other.

Power is a factor of muscle contraction. Muscle contraction moves the club over ones head and then as various muscle groups contract, the club accelerates making contact with the ball, sending it down the fairway. This is true of all golfing technique from driving to putting.

To improve the distance one drives off the tee all one needs to do is improve the strength of the muscles involved in that movement. It is that simple. Strength improvements call for a strength-training program. No amount of hours swinging the club will increase strength. It will increase ones skill connected to that specific movement.

Genetics combine individuality such and the length of ones arms, torso, legs and other more complex elements such as the neuromuscular system, all which determines our "natural ability."

To do so, stretch slowly and hold maximum range positions for at least twenty seconds for best results. Do not bounce during the stretch. Fast movements in various directions will not improve flexibility. Proper strength training will improve flexibility.

5. Endurance is a requirement for some sports such as long distance running. Golf does not need high levels of endurance. However, high energy levels call for mental focus to sustain consistency in the skills needed for 18 holes of golf. Energy comes from the food one eats or drinks.

A major Improvement in high-energy food is the recent development of nutritionally correct food bars. These bars provide adequate calories and nutrition as found in a typically healthy, low calorie meal, prepared at home.

The nutrient balances provide just the right mix of protein, carbohydrate, and fat percentages. This blend of nourishment provides high energy and helps the body, mind, and spirit to function at maximum capacity, for extended periods.

6. Positive imagery is mentally focusing on the skills connected to golf, always focusing on getting successful performance. These mental skills are practiced anywhere, anytime and will contribute to improvement of ones sport performance.

First, however, you must understand the skills involved in the sport. Learn the skills from a competent instructor. Then, you must practice these skills in your mind's eye several times a day. Perfect mental practice makes perfect performance.

(7) Clothing which provides adequate protection from the weather is mandatory. It must provide freedom of movement to serve its purpose, and clothing makes one look cool on the course.
