Why so important for golf?
Pilates has many benefits including helping to improve posture and reduce the risk of injury, as well as improve your performance.
Pilates breathing stretches the small muscles between the ribs. This is perfect for golfers as we have least flexibility in this area of the spine, stretching them increases a golfer’s ability to rotate.
Confidence on the course
Golfers of all levels have bad days on the course. Shoulders move forward, the head drops, and then the swing goes. Train your body and mind so despite a bad shot you are in control of your posture! You walk tall, focus on your breathing routine and alignment.
Ball striking & distance control
If your ball striking is lacking there could be potential physical causes that could be improved by Pilates exercises. See images of common swing faults.
