Well-developed glutes allow us to stand, walk and run upright and recent studies have shown that the gluteus group plays a substantial role in core stability. Another interesting fact is that the gluteus maximus is the largest muscle in the body
When playing in windy conditions, do you change your technique, or do you just struggle to control your ball flight the ball like most Highveld golfers?
Scotty has some advice for you to help deal with windy situations, but as with all other tweaks to technique, it will require some solid practice sessions at the World of Golf before you take it onto the course.
Shoulder and neck pain are common conditions that affect all individuals at some point in their lifetime. As we get older, the joints become more susceptible to shearing (bending over to pick up your golf ball or addressing the ball on the tee box) and weight bearing forces (such as picking up your golf bag out of the car). Shoulder & neck pains are compounded by the large mobility and complex movements offered by the neck and shoulder joints. Because the shoulder and neck are so closely connected in the body, it is common to find a pain referral between the 2 areas.
Most golfers find it difficult to deal with up-slopes, down-slopes & plugged lies in the bunker. If you struggle with these, Scotty has some practical advice to help you cope better with these bunker shots.
