The strong link between the techniques of golf and sports medicine converged in Western Australia in the 1990s with the involvement of Perth Integrated Health with Golf Professionals and Golf Courses.
Fast forward to the 2019 and the strong link remains with Point Walter Golf Course and the Perth Integrated Health Group of Companies who recently delivered a series of workshops for the aspiring golfer.
No matter what your handicap is or where you are in your personal journey with golf – the workshops were designed to improve the swing and guide people towards stronger skills and greater enjoyment in the game, said Point Walter Golf Club Manager Clarke Osborne.
“These workshops have been great in helping people understand their swings more, the principles of creating a better swing and how our approach to health plays a role in that,” Mr Osborne said.
The workshops, which finished earlier this week, consisted of:
- Workshop #1: The drive and biomechanical principles of golf
- Workshop #2: Winning those irons, pitching effectively & tackling the hip paradigm of golf
- Workshop #3: The short game and understanding your knees for golf
The workshops were limited to 40 participants per workshop on a first-in registration basis.
In lieu of any payment, Belgravia Leisure and Perth Integrated Health asked participants to consider a direct donation to the Belgravia Foundation, which resulted in a number of excellent donations.
“It was a great series of workshops,” said Mr Osborne.
“We help people gain a better understanding of the fundamentals of golf and how biomechanics play such an important role, as well as support the foundation which is so important to us all.”
