Golf fitness exercises that are the most effective are rotational in nature, incorporating your core. This is
the engine to your swing! If your core is weak or restricted, you will have a very difficult time generating

because they have invested time and money and not seen results.
Implementing a few simple golf fitness exercises can make all the difference. I want you to picture the
“main movement” in the golf swing. It’s “rotational!” So why
wouldn’t you improve your rotational strength and flexibility?
