For the millions of Americans trying to improve their golf game, having access to the same exercise programs of the top tour players like Annika Sorenstam or Karen Stupples may seem like the opportunity of a lifetime Â which is exactly what the authors of the new e-book, ÂThe Fitness Secrets of Championship GolfersÂ had in mind.
The book is the brainchild of Fitness for Golf, a memberÂs only, online golf fitness web site dedicated to the improvement of golfers worldwide. Fitness for Golf Founder Susan Hill, a golf fitness trainer and sports performance nutrition specialist, said that she was frustrated with the lack of accurate information for golfers and wanted to create a resource that would give them the guidance they need to improve on the physical, mental and technical aspects of the game.
ÂNormally golfers would have to invest in many books which focus on one personÂs expertise,Â Hill said. ÂThere just wasnÂt a book that brought all the pieces together - until now.Â
According to Hill, the book is more than 200 pages of golf fitness training programs, mental coaching techniques, golf swing drills and day-to-day action plans from seven of the nationÂs top golf experts, such as Personal Trainer and Sports Nutritionist Kai Fusser who is currently the trainer to some of the worldÂs premier athletes, including Annika Sorenstam.
ÂWe knew if we were going to do it, we had to do it right,Â Hill said. ÂThe experts that we have assembled are truly the best in golf, traveling on the PGA and LPGA tours.Â
Another of the bookÂs contributors is Jeff Troesch, an internationally recognized expert in the field of mental skills training and performance enhancement, who offers information on effective course management strategies.
ÂItÂs not true that you are either born with it or you are not,Â Troesch said. ÂThe book is designed to help golfers of all levels and ages with the mental part of the game including dealing with anger, frustration, competitive anxiety, fears and lack of confidence. The best players in the world are using this type of training and, if it can help them improve, it can help golfers of any playing level.Â
