why choose the golf performance programme

No matter how often you play golf, or for how many years you’ve played, there will be physical limitations preventing you from being the best golfer you can. For young golfers, getting it right, from the start is vital to prevent bad habits, golf-related injuries or age-related limitations sneaking in and reducing your potential.

Common issues affecting golf are injuries through repetitive strain, aches and pains, limited swing and range, hip and back misuse, overall lack of fitness, lack of flexibility and mobility.

With expertise covering your technique, physique and fitness, you will be provided with a full assessment, a plan of attack and the support you need to see improvements in your game (and handicap)!

Suitable for men and women of all ages, the Golf Performance Programme can be preventative or restorative, depending on your needs.

Golf Performance Team

Darren Everett

Golf Coaching Assessment

Darren Everett is Director of Golf at Exeter Golf and Country Club. Darren and his team of PGA Professionals will complete the golf coaching assessment.

Golf fitness is certainly nothing new but is something now we have far better knowledge of and access to. All golfers have their own agenda for staying fit and healthy. For some, it as simple as trying to prolong their playing time. I for one would love to try and beat my age as a golf score at some time in my life. Perhaps when I am 70 I could shoot 69! I would love to do that, but I am only going to achieve that if I can stay fit and healthy. For other golfers it could be about recovery from injury. Modelling a technique around a players limitations is so important but understanding what or why those limitations are is equally important. When we are coaching it is much easier and more beneficial if we know why a golfer may be struggling to achieve certain golf swing positions or movements. Areas such as lack of shoulder rotation or the ability to transfer weight correctly could simply be down to the body not being in the condition to allow these movements. No amount of golf coaching will improve your game unless the body allows it.

Nick Rose

Personal Trainer

Nick is a REPS 3 qualified Personal Trainer, who has worked with many golfers during almost a decade at the Exeter Golf and Country Club gym. Nick understands the importance of fitness, agility, flexibility, strength and co-ordination in improving your game of golf. A personal training plan can target limitations.

Whether you are an avid, everyday golfer or just picking up a club for the first time, here are some important things to consider. Did you know there are several factors which can determine how well you will be able to swing before you ever touch a club? The key factor is your overall golf fitness level which consists of your strength, stamina and flexibility. A limitation in your flexibility (or tightness) may mean you cannot achieve the necessary range of motion and therefore a disruption in the swing occurs. Research has shown that having a balance of strength training, conditioning and flexibility can dramatically improve your golf game. Hand and wrist strength will improve your club control throughout the swing. Strong legs and a strong core give you the ability to maintain your posture throughout your swing. This will reduce your chances of having a poor swing and more importantly, help reduce the risk of pain or injury in your back. Your ability to finish your round, directly relates to how well conditioned you are. If you neglect the conditioning portion of your workout, it is difficult to finish strong and enjoy your entire round!

Iain Crombie

Harbour Chiropractic

Iain is a sports Chiropractor with a wealth of experience working with golfers of all abilities. As part of his assessment he uses the golf specific Titleist Performance Institute screening system to identify and treat any physical issues you may have, helping to ensure maximum efficiency of movement in your swing and prevent injury.

There are many different types of golf swing, and many different body shapes. My job is to make sure that the body is moving in the most efficient way possible. All too often I see players who’s limited upper back movement, or poor core and hip strength means they are suffering from shoulder or lower back pain as a consequence of the way they swing the club. By using golf specific movement screens, such as those used by the Titleist Performance Institute, we are able to asses golfers movement in a way specific to their sport. Once we know how they move, we can work to correct the issues. Not only does this help prevent injury, but it can lead to enhanced performance on the course by increasing their swing efficiency.

The aim of the golf performance programme is to create a team around the golfer. Having golf, fitness and medical professionals all working together towards the same goal means the programme can be tailored to that individual and allow them to get the most out of their game.
