Stay the Course

Not all swings are created equal. Your body and physical fitness level affect how you swing the club. The golf swing is a balance between mobility and stability. The more your body is able to be mobile and stable, the more efficient your swing will be. The more efficient your swing is, the better golf you will play.

Sanford POWER offers drills specifically designed to keep your body going the entire round, whether you are just playing a few holes or a full 18. Improving your body means improving your game. Plus your progress will be monitored to make sure you don’t start drifting back to your bad habits.
