Closing the Book on the Sony Open and Welcome to the Bob Hope Classic
The PGA Tour has returned to the mainland and the beautiful Palm Springs area. Many call this area of a golfer’s paradise, and in my mind, I agree wholeheartedly. Tough duty for me this week.
The number of golf courses in the area is unbelievable and great courses from course designers such as Palmer, Dye, Nicklaus, and Norman.
The Bob Hope is a unique event with five days of golf spread over four different courses. La Quinta, Bermuda Dunes, PGA West, and the new course on the rotation, the Classic Course.
The Classic Course is a Palmer designed course located off Cook St. One I am looking forward to seeing. Final round play is at the Classic Course on Sunday, and whoever wins this tournament tends to hole quite a few birdies.
Talking about the golf swing and the Bob Hope Classic brings about the idea of endurance. Think about it. Five very competitive rounds of golf in five days. Can you imagine the stamina it requires in your golf swing to play that much golf let alone compete at the highest level in golf?
The golf swing is a repeatable athletic movement. In order to repeat the golf swing correctly and successfully the body must have a high level of muscular endurance (remember it is your body that performs the biomechanics of the golf swing).
Endurance is the ability to perform a movement over and over again without becoming fatigued. If the body becomes fatigued, the ability to perform this intricate movement diminishes quickly.
If you are looking to develop a repeatable golf swing, don’t forget to improve your foundation, your body. It’s what supports that swing.
