I agree but I must add something to the mix.

I found that during a round, I got tired so I had to put more effort so I got more tired so I had to put more effort so I go even more tired...

I realized that I wasn't strong enough for the effort I put out in the first place.

Solution is to become stronger, just enough so that the effort seems like I'm only putting out 50% instead of 150% for the same result. I hope it makes a difference this season, we'll see.

Sean, you could not be more wrong. Weight training, done right, is a great boon for golfers. That is why more and more pro's use weights. This is just the start of what will soon be a much greater trend.

As a former professional athlete, I can tell you that your fears are unfounded. The muscle soreness of which you speak is a temporary symptom caused by lactic acid accumulation in the muscles. In fact, if you accompany weight training with stretching (which you should be doing anyway), you can increase both your strength and flexibility.

I'll also point out that it has been said that Woods can bench 300 pounds, and his hard work in the gym and extra muscle mass certainly haven't impacted negatively upon his game. I'll also mention that distance is mainly a function of three factors (insofar as the physical goes): size, strength and action specific flexibility. And strength is of the utmost importance; this is why the men hit the ball farther than the women.

It's amazing how fit some of these golfers are. Who'd have thought Tiger could bench that much. I'll have to find the Tiger Woods workout among the hundreds of workout routines at http://www.fitclick.com/workout_routine.
