Book Review: “The Four Foundations of Golf” by Jon Sherman
Dear reader, as a golf content curator, I had the pleasure of reading Jon Sherman’s book, “The Four Foundations of Golf”, which delves into the often overlooked aspect of golf fitness. Sherman effectively emphasizes the significance of having a golf-specific workout plan to enhance not only your performance on the course but also your overall well-being.
Revue Golf fitness in “The Four Foundations of Golf”
”Golf fitness is a topic that is not given enough attention to in regards to game improvement. There are a number of ways that a golf-specific workout plan can improve your performance on the course. More importantly, it will help you live longer and increase the quality of your daily life.”
In the book, Sherman convincingly highlights the numerous benefits of regular exercise, supported by research from the Centers for Disease Control. These benefits encompass weight control, reduced risk of cardiovascular diseases, prevention of type 2 diabetes and metabolic syndrome, strengthened bones and muscles, improved mental health, increased longevity (According to a study by the famous Karolinska Institute in Sweden, golfers have a life expectancy of five years longer than other citizens. The survey involved 300,000 golfers.), and decreased risk of certain cancers. By stressing the importance of exercise beyond golf, Sherman establishes a solid foundation for understanding the significance of a fitness plan.
Sherman then delves into the specific advantages of golf fitness, debunking misconceptions about extreme workout routines that professional golfers often pursue. He acknowledges that casual fitness routines, tailored to the individual’s needs, can have a profound impact on one’s golf game without requiring excessive time and effort.
By drawing on insights from experts like Kai Fusser, who has worked with renowned golfers like Annika Sörenstam, Sherman offers practical advice and workout programs that are accessible to golfers of all levels.
“The Four Foundations of Golf” stands out as a comprehensive guide, combining golf-specific exercises, expert perspectives, and Sherman’s own experiences. The book strikes a perfect balance between highlighting the importance of fitness in golf and ensuring it remains accessible and enjoyable for golf enthusiasts. Sherman’s dedication to being an honest resource for everyday golfers shines through, making this book a valuable addition to any golfer’s library.
Whether you’re a beginner looking to improve your game or a seasoned golfer seeking to optimize your performance, “The Four Foundations of Golf” provides a well-researched and practical roadmap to elevate your golf fitness and, consequently, your overall golf experience.
