Fit golf equals smart golf…
is the idea The First Tee of the Golden Isles wanted to bring to fruition in 2018 with their health and wellness initiative. My name is Edward Bolt, I hold a Doctorate from Mercer University, a certified Golf Fitness Instructor through Titleist Performance Institute, and I am a Physical Therapist at Advance Rehabilitation on St. Simons Island, Georgia. It has been an amazing experience to work with so many local amateur and professional golfers and now the opportunity to help The First Tee and their families adds to what makes the Golden Isles so great.
My affiliation with the First Tee began with the preceding thought in mind; help develop an exercise program used by the participant to warm-up and practice throughout the 2017 classes. With this blog, we want to help The First Tee with foundational exercises and information to promote a healthier golf game and lifestyle. My colleague, Michael Cavanah, and I will be presenting exercises and education to improve strength, balance, and joint mobility, similar to the video below detailing the importance of achieving your neutral spine.
