The golf screen or assessment is used to identify the physical limitations which can cause common faults in the golf swing. Two main aims of the screen are to test for mobility and stability. If we can identify and correct the mobility and stability issues in the body, it will go a long way to creating a better golf swing. Some of the main areas analysed during the assessment are pelvic and hip mobility, thoracic mobility, posterior chain muscular flexibility, core strength, balance, wrist ankle and shoulder mobility. Failure in any of the tests will identify the incorrect movement pattern in your goal swing, and allow us to correct it.
|Swing Fault: Sway off the ball on the back swing||Physical Reasons can be because of:|
|– Limited right internal rotation;|
|Technical reason: Lack of understanding of proper swing technique||– Limited thorax to pelvis separation ;|
|– Shortened lat flexibility and;|
|– Weak gluteal musculature.|
Once the key physical limitations are identified, we can start formulating a program for the individual’s needs. The program can be developed for the gym or at home depending on their circumstances. Using the example above, we would start by improving mobility in the thoracic spine through various rotation exercises as this can have an impact on the mobility and flexibility around the shoulder. We would then develop glute strength through different bridges as well as squat and deadlift variations which should increase stability over the ball as well allowing better rotation during the back swing.
We also do Golf Fitness Classes every week if you want to improve your golf fitness in a more social atmosphere. To book your screen or find out about any of our fitness classes contact Sean Young or Derek Morrison at the Golf Shop for more information.

Covid Update: Our premises have now been sanitised by a professional company and are now open again.
We have closely followed HSE Guidance, and identified 1 person (a staff member) who must now self isolate. Our Perspex screen is considered a safeguard against close contact and the HSE do not require anyone who has stood in front of it yesterday morning to be contacted.
We wish our staff member a speedy recovery and congratulate them on getting a test immediately when they began to feel unwell, and also hats off to the testing service who had a result for them in less than a day.
Keep safe folks.. ... See MoreSee Less
Unfortunately our clubhouse building is currently closed as we have just found out that a reception staff member who worked yesterday morning has tested positive for Covid 19.
We have a professional cleaning company booked for 12pm to sanitise the interior of the premises and will have a further update after that.
Golfers who already have a booking may still play, by making their way from the car park directly to the 1st tee. We cannot take new bookings at this time.
The driving range is completely unaffected as it is on a separate site, and this staff member has not been into the driving range at all.
Safety is our priority on this one, we will be back with an update in due course. ... See MoreSee Less
