Physical conditioning for golf is now being recognized as an essential component of performance enhancement and injury reduction. Recent scientific investigations have provided evidence demonstrating improvements in performance measures, such as club head speed, following strength and power training interventions. However, information regarding the practical application of appropriate strength and conditioning programming is limited. The aim of this is article is to provide an evidence-based needs analysis of the sport, followed by a subsequent review of the literature pertaining to the physical development of golfers. By highlighting the reported effects of relevant training interventions on golf performance, the information provided within this manuscript will aid the strength and conditioning coach in prescribing effective training programs to enhance performance without the fear of experiencing commonly-perceived side effects (e.g., loss of flexibility and mobility), which may discourage individuals from partaking in such activities.
