PerformPKB: Strength Training Will Destroy Your Game -True or False?

By | June 27th, 2018|Categories: Physical Performance Articles|

If you’ve been playing the game for long, you’ve probably been told that strength training for golfers will get you bulky, restrict your mobility and can even get you hurt so that you can’t play the game.  But how true is this argument? This is a contested topic on many media platforms and even among coaches and golfers themselves. The curious part of this is that the people having the [...]

PerformPKB: Range Practice is Hurting You – Do This Instead

By | June 13th, 2018|Categories: Physical Performance Articles|

The driving range is the biggest barrier to a golfer's success.  Period.  It is a place where quantity is king, and quality is the court jester.  Repeating swing after swing in a blocked practice format actually breeds repetitive injuries and ends careers.  Minimal carry over onto the course from the range is what keeps handicaps and frustrations high, while contributing to the high number of injuries that we see on [...]

PerformPKB: 7 Stages of Long Term Athletic Development for Golfers

By | March 21st, 2018|Categories: Physical Performance Articles|

Individuals can experience failed attempts to participate in organized sports when too much emphasis is placed on competition and not enough attention on developing proper athleticism (appropriate movement skills). If you have limited movement skills, you stop participating.  This leads to decreased interest in physical activity and a failure to develop physical literacy (proper training to improve athleticism) in a sequential and progressive manner. Because of this, it is important [...]

PerformPKB: How Should I Spend My Practice Time – Part 1

By | March 21st, 2018|Categories: Player Performance Articles|

Practice is essential in improving, but most players fail to practice effectively or efficiently.  I look at data to help analyze how I can help improve a players practice.   Every tournament player that I coach I suggest them to use, a statistical analysis program designed by Peter Sanders.  By tracking data, we receive similar data to what the PGA Tour players can get.  Through analyzation, we can track tendencies, [...]

RecruitPKB: Growth or Fixed Mindset?

By | December 8th, 2017|Categories: Player Performance Articles|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

How do you handle adversity, challenges, and setbacks? With a fixed mindset or a growth mindset? One of my favorite and most influential books is Carol Dweck's Mindset. She has conducted numerous studies and research on the difference in those who possess a fixed mindset and those who have a growth mindset. This past weekend I had the opportunity to sit down with a top 50 ranked DI college golf coach to [...]
