Greg Norman Trained as an Overall Athlete
Here is a little history lesson about how Greg Norman changed golf. Yes, I think that Greg Norman is responsible for the modern training techniques that players now use. Greg was the first to consult an outside person on his training. He went to Evander Holyfield's training people and asked them how to develop a sport specific, a golf specific, program for his physical conditioning. He also went to Butch Harmon, encouraged by Steve Elkington and me, to get a swing that matched his physical capacity, his athleticism that involved the big muscles and less hands and less temptation to flip the club.
Have a Program of Strength and Conditioning in Addition to Golf Skills
Greg went on a mission early in the 1990s to be a completely different athlete. I am not sure people really appreciate, and that the amateur athlete today appreciates how much goes in to training yourself to play better golf. It is important to have a program of strength and conditioning, short game, long game, mental game and course strategy. Learn from Greg Normal and it will make you a better player.
