Are College Golfers Expected to Take Part in a Conditioning Program?
Article by Ted Gleason
During my time playing college golf (some 25 years ago) our team-conditioning program consisted of running around the track four times at a self-dictated pace, doing some push-ups, then sit-ups, and ending with a little stretching. Wow, have things changed…and for the better!
Nowadays a specific golf fitness program is an integral part of most college golf program’s weekly routine. Whether it is a team-mandated workout or coaches encouraging players to integrate fitness into their weekly routines, fitness in college golf is here to stay.
Sloooow play isn’t only frustrating, it is also unnecessary. The best news is that quickening your play will lower your scores.
I work with talented amateur and professional golfers on a daily basis, helping each to think and play more effectively. They come to me for a variety of reasons: to improve their confidence, to better their tournament mindset, to learn to “get in the present”, to move from a great practice player to a skilled competitor, to reduce their competitive anxiety, or to learn to recover and stay mentally focused after a poor hole.
The Florida Junior Tour’s 16-18 division was back in full swing this weekend at West Orange Country Club in Winter Garden. Warm weather, as well as fairly light winds, allowed for some great scoring conditions out on the course. Both Travis Trace and Dree Fausnaugh were able to take advantage of the conditions and broke through to win their first event of the 2015 FJT season.
Dree Fausnaugh, the winner of the 2014 Junior Tour Championship at TPC Sawgrass, claimed another FJT title after firing a tournament total 152. Her extremely impressive first round 73 gave her enough of an advantage over the rest of the field to hold onto the lead after shooting a second round 79.
As a vital component to our full-time Junior Elite Program at the Mike Bender Golf Academy, practicing smart can make the difference between progressing toward your goals in an efficient and timely manner verses spinning your wheels and wasting your time on the practice tee. What should you practice? How long and why? All great questions for the amateur, junior, and professional player alike.
At the MBEGA we make it our goal to help all of our students understand what and when to practice. In fact, we have broken it down into a science; a science that involves specific assessments and test performed at various times of the year for each of our Elite junior golfers.

With increased demands on time, young golfers want to workout quickly but keep their cardiorespiratory endurance at optimal efficiency. High Intensity Interval Training involves alternating between very intense bouts of exercise and low intensity exercise, preferably at a 1:4 interval ratio for beginners. So jog at a moderate intensity for 60 seconds then sprint for 15 seconds (complete 10 times) but only once or twice a week to increase anaerobic and aerobic capacities.
