Golf fitness. It’s increasingly becoming a massive part of the golf industry. Quite frankly it has to be a part of the conversation when the distance debate rears its ugly head. With the technology that’s been developed for personal fitness it’s no doubt golfers (or athletes in general) have gotten faster… notice I never said bigger.

On top of the technology you have to look at the amount of R&D that’s been poured into physical fitness. Thousands of hours spent in university labs and so on looking for breakthroughs in kinesiology.
