Tweet Balance is so important in golf, yet many times we think it has to do with getting older or muscles that just aren’t developed correctly. While these issues can certainly be part of what is causing the problem, another problem can also be specific medical issues. Medication can be the culprit. I recently read a great blog post by Ron Celano called Improving Your Golf Balance. While we have discussed the types of exercises you can do to improve your balance, I...

Today’s secret black belt golf tip involves stretching.  The main goal of stretching is to prevent injury and increase power through flexibility.  How do we prevent injuries when it comes to stretching?  What I have found to be very helpful is to have the body warmed up before I begin stretching.  If I have developed a little bit of a sweat in my warm-up, then stretching for me is not only easier on my body, because there is already blood circulation running through my body...
