Improving your Balance for Golf

Heading into the colder months means starting up an exercise routine. Whether you do
yoga, Swing Doctor Golf or your own fitness regiment, keep balance in mind. If you lose
your balance towards your heels in the swing, you are prone to slicing and pull shots. If
you lose your balance towards your toes, you are prone to hooks and pushes. The fellow
swinging in the picture on the right below is probably not getting the results he would
like and he is also looking at major lower back issues in the future.

The fellow on the left is working on stabilizing his core muscles in order to stay on the
ball. The stronger your core is, the better your balance is and your longevity of playing
this great game! You may not necessarily balance on a fitness ball, but you can find
other exercises to help this. I would suggest to the fellow who swung in the picture below
to change his finish position and work on some core strengthening to promote better
balance.
