Hip Mechanics for Golfers

“Your handicap may lie, but your hips don’t.”   -Shakira Okay, so maybe my memory of Shakira lyrics leaves a little bit to interpretation, but one thing is for sure, our golf swing starts from the ground up in more ways than one.

Motor Learning: How to teach an old dog it’s like riding a bike again

For the most part, we all remember when we first learned to ride a bike, catch a fish, or flush our first long iron off the range. What we don’t usually remember is how we arrived at that moment. When we are kids, we are constantly learning new things, whether by training or experience. It […]
