A 12-week strength and con­di­tion­ing train­ing pro­gramme to im­prove the golf game and per­for­mance for any high hand­i­cap­per.

At Pin­na­cle BLACK, all ath­letes are sub­jected to spe­cific screen­ing mea­sures to re­tain ac­count­abil­ity with their goal, and en­sure that all train­ing is op­ti­mised. With Louie, we are em­bark­ing upon a 12week train­ing pro­gramme specif­i­cally de­signed to im­prove his golf game, so nat­u­rally we put Louie through his paces with an ini­tial pro­fil­ing ses­sion util­is­ing our Pin­na­cle Golf Screen­ing to gauge his over­all ath­letic suit­abil­ity for golf, and to or­gan­ise his pri­mary ar­eas of im­prove­ment in the first few weeks.

The Pin­na­cle Golf Screen­ing is an hour-long pro­to­col specif­i­cally de­signed to as­sess the most rel­e­vant ar­eas of strength, sta­bil­ity, mo­bil­ity and work ca­pac­ity for a golfer of any level, all tests scored from 1-5. We have in­cluded a se­lec­tion of Louie’s best and worst mea­sures here to dis­play his pri­or­ity ar­eas, as can be seen there are a cou­ple that were very ob­vi­ous to be­gin with! Louie had fan­tas­tic mo­bil­ity through his tho­racic spine and shoul­ders, which re­quires no im­prove­ment. Louie’s main ar­eas of fo­cus were his strength deficit, and what will be a fo­cus here is his hip strength. The ca­pac­ity to sta­bilise and con­trol hip move­ment in a golf swing is para­mount, and Louie’s base­line strength in all ar­eas of his hips was sub-par for golf per­for­mance. The fol­low­ing are some of the key ex­er­cises we would utilise for cre­at­ing ini­tial im­prove­ment here. James Honey is an S&C coach at Pin­na­cle BLACK, and also the Lead S&C Coach of HKGA.
