Yet, golf lesson after golf lesson and swing tip after swing tip … most Golfers don’t realize much improvement after 2 or 3 years of trying to improve. Why is this?
Our golf swing can only function as well as our body and mind allow. Let’s start with your body. Compared to your 25 year old self … are you currently more flexible or less? Are you stronger or less? As coordinated or less?
It’s the same on the PGA & LPGA Tours … the 25 year olds can often be much more athletic hitting the golf ball farther distances than the 40+ years olds (Mickelson & Woods). Though, these 40+ year olds are also hitting the ball farther than their younger self’s … as they’re working on their bodies to improve their golf swing (as they also improve their quality of life as they progress in the years going forward).
