Being in control of your body during a movement simply means that you are able to effectively swing your club without making any other unnecessary changes in your position that would otherwise ruin your golf swing.
Thinking too much about the shot and its possible consequences almost always makes a player take forever to hit the ball. His mind evaluates too much that it reaches a point where information overload bars him from taking the swing for fear that he won't get the ball into the hole. When he does decide to take the hit, however, his mind has already been saturated with so much negativity that it eventually becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. 'I knew it wouldn't go in if I hit it that way' becomes a player's excuse when this happens.
First, he won't be able to concentrate on the shot he is about to make as he worries no end about his future strokes. Second, he has gotten so wound up that even if he concentrates to get his form right, his muscles have already bunched up to a point that his body just won't cooperate. As a consequence, he worries even more that he won't be able to put the ball into the hole. The worrywart golf player will eventually find out in the end that his worries had come true.
Sit on a stability ball with your feet as wide as your shoulders. Keep your hands rested at your sides and straighten your spine. Your abdominal muscles must be tight all throughout your exercise. Lift one leg at a time alternatively, as if you were marching. Always keep your spine straight so it achieves the desired effect of stabilizing your abdomen and spine. The marching motion also strengthens the thigh muscles.
Pilates is a workout regimen that proceeds from what it calls the Powerhouse-- the area covered by your abdomen, back and pelvic muscles-- to the extremities. Since this is a core strengthening exercise, it is also a good complementary exercise for golfers who need a strong core to support powerful swings. Golfers on Pilates are also more aware of their body mechanics and as such are able to produce more accurate shots.
However, the outdoors also exposes the golfer to the elements of sun and wind. Wind is a carrier of dirt, debris and foreign objects that could irritate and if large enough, damage the eye. Ultraviolet rays from the sun due to prolonged exposure cause cataracts, sunburn to the eyelids, skin cancer around the eyes and macular degeneration. When serious enough and not treated early, these conditions could potentially blind a golfer.
