Want to get back to golf without worrying about re-injury?
There are an infinite number of swing styles, but there is one efficient way for every player to swing and it is based on what the player can physically do.
The most efficient swing is not the same for every golfer, because efficiency is unique to their body.
Understand how your body’s limitations can influence your golf swing and how to address those limitations through the proper channels; whether it’s through swing instruction, physical rehabilitation or strength and conditioning exercise – all of which we can teach you!
