Highlights from “The Healthy Golfer” (To read chapter excerpts, go here)

• The need for relatively slow and easy exercise, such as walking, to enable your aerobic system to improve endurance for better golf.
• The benefits of flat and unstructured footwear on and off the course, and the reasons to avoid expensive and over-designed shoes that put your body in a position to fail or get injured.
• The importance of focusing on burning body fat for unlimited physical and mental energy, rather than relying on carbohydrates, which come with severe and erratic limitations in energy.
• Reasons to stay away from refined carbohydrates that can reduce endurance energy, affect blood-sugar levels, and disrupt important hormone balance, including those that create stress.
• Why stretching before play is not recommended because significant flexibility can be obtained with an active warm up through walking, and without the risk of injury that can accompany stretching.
• How to balance your dietary fats to reduce inflammation and improve brain function.
• Why spending adequate time in the sun allows your body to obtain more vitamin D that will improve athletic performance, and how to protect yourself from getting burned.
• How to ensure that age will not become a barrier to your enjoyment of the game and why you can play into your 80s, 90s, and beyond, and yes, without fatigue or injury.

So the doctor favours flat, possibly spikeless golf shoes over the traditional structured variant.

Sorta makes sense, seeing that to swing within yourself to a balanced finish, over-reliance on the grip of the shoes might encourage over-zealous movement.

Reminds me of the best drills for this - barefoot range sessions or full swings whilst standing on inflated rubber pads a la Michelle Wie.
