A Lower Body Golf Swing Can Generate Maximum Power
The perfect lower body golf swing involves the legs to a very large extent and it is therefore true to say that exercise that conditions these parts of the body will have a positive impact on the quality of the golf swing.
This truth is obvious when you take a closer look at the golf swing. During the backswing, the feet, knee and hamstring muscles are extremely important. The rest of the golf swing movement will usually require a lot of participation of the hip and lower back.

Golf the Real Thing
The grass is always greener on the other side. Not as green as I felt on the inside the day I decided to check out this golf lark. I could never get my head around why all the excitement and fuss at the sheer mention of the word golf.
Off to the local driving range I did go, selected myself a golf club and purchased a token for fifty golf balls. Maybe if I had more knowledge on the game, I would have realized the importance of choosing the right size golf club.
