Golf Wellness Ratings The course has given me a clear understanding how I can prevent my clients from getting injuries while playing golf. It also provides great examples of how a golfer can improve their golf mechanics and energy when playing golf. I look forward to educating my golfers on how to warm up, stretch and eat properly when golfing, so they can get the most out of their game.  Michael Koprich, ACE Certified Professional  Learned effective and simple ways to help golfers increase flexibility and decrease the risk of injury while on the golf course. In addition, the course provided ways to fuel the body during a round of golf. I will apply this to my work by showing golfers how to get the most out of their ability and how to stay limber and relaxed during their round.  Robert Suitca, ACE Certified Professional  I liked how this went into detail of sun exposure. I think this was a great topic in the Golf Wellness Program. Spreading the awareness to my golfing clients the importance of sunscreen. Great information!  Timothy Craig Boswell, NFPT Certified Professional
