At FitGolf Performance Centers, we want to deeply understand how the body and the golf swing are related. In an effort to improve understanding, we are researching the causes low back pain in golfers.  

It is thought that there are physical and swing causes to low back pain in golf.  We are trying to determine the validity of those causes through research.  Our testing includes several physical tests and a golf swing check for the presence or absence of certain motions in the swing.  The testing takes about 30 minutes.

Once the testing is completed the research will be explained to you in its entirety and you will be able to ask any questions that you may have.  You will receive a $100 certificate that you can use towards Fitgolf  Performance Center services as a “thank you” for helping with this research.
