Australia has some of the world’s leading practitioners when it comes to Golf Conditioning. In Victoria physiotherapist Ramsey McMasters has developed a fine reputation in assisting both professional and weekend golfers improve all aspects of their games. In Queensland physiotherapist Michael Dalgleish and biomechanist Dr Rob Neal have developed a scientific program to support and improve golf performance. Their website – The Golf Athlete (sign up for their great newsletter while you are there) has a range of great research articles that are a must for all serious golfers.

At AOK we have developed or import a number of training tools for golf – the Dura Disc is used by David Leadbetter.  This is his idea for using them.  It takes some getting used to, but hitting barefoot off these strong Australian made cushions enhances the feedback regarding balance during all parts of your swing. Stop a various points in the swing to check for trouble spots. The more you develop a smooth rhythm, not over-swing and stay in balance, the less you’ll fall off the pillows.

From Norway comes the Terapi Master (now known as Redcord) as sling stabilisation apparatus that assists with developing “core” function and strength. In a recent study it was shown that this can easily be translated into greater driving range.

Paul Chek has applied his extensive knowledge of physical conditioning with his book and DVD .
