Golfers of all abilities—men and women—can benefit from being fit, which is why Old Palm Golf Club is hosting a Titleist Performance Institute-certified fitness and golf instruction seminar on Thursday, January 8 (4pm-5pm). The class will be held at Old Palm’s Golf Studio, where Director of Instruction Mark Hackett and Old Palm fitness specialist Ken McDonald will teach members how to improve the efficiency of their golf swings and make their bodies more resistant to injuries. After an initial screening to determine each golfer’s physical abilities, he or she will receive a customized training plan. The plan may include fitness training, physical therapy and treatment, coaching of swing mechanics and biomechanics, nutrition and mental strategy. The goal is to improve the golfer’s range of motion, stabilize the lower body and improve motor control as it relates to the golf swing. With proper training and improved fitness, members can expect to enjoy Old Palm’s spectacular Raymond Floyd-designed golf course even more—and lower their scores.
