Not looking for any conflict here.But in general.Most PGA tour players are extremely weak for their builds.I will agree that they work out more than previous generations of pros.But in my observations.They just are very weak for an professional male athlete.Ive worked out with many professional athletes that are some of the most strongest-flexible-coordinated individuals I’ve ever met.I would never trade my physique for any current pga male tour player.So what makes these guys so unique?How are they so gifted in what they do?

You must be ONLY thinking of John Daly

Maybe he's referring to actually lifting of weights where there likely aren't as many guys who are benching a lot of weight.  However, that's only me trying to find any justification for this guy.  

I would say that the exact opposite is true from what I've seen on tour and even in the college ranks at the bigger D1 programs.  Fitness is a HUGE part of their programs and daily routines.  Maybe you don't want to trade bodies with them, but I find it hard to believe that you wouldn't want a body like a Brooks Koepka, who basically looks like a Mens Fitness model. 

Give me a break

☝️Can you elaborate a bit on that?  who were the athletes and what sport were they a professional in?

I'm not sure that @Edveed really cares to have a discussion, he just lobbed that one out there and hasn't returned.  That seems to be a pattern with him.

Guys like the late Rich Piana, Bradley Martin, Kai Greene, Sadik Hadzovic and the list goes on and on of pro lifters. These guys are about bulk and mass. Where as a pro golfer is about functional core muscles. Sure, the look isn’t as impressive as the list of studs above. But I assure you that it is perfect for a game like golf. It’s about precision and repetition. If your looking for natural bulk  or power lifter  show looks. You will never find this on any golf tour. But you will find many in great cardio yoga driven builds. This isn’t a sport about 55 dumbbell curls and 300 lbs bench press. It’s about medicine ball / lunges / cable and elastic band workouts
Having a back that one can use as a movie screen isnt golf. Or needed for playing the level these guys do. The lifters have a look that works great on a beach. But won’t be very effective on a golf course 

Well stated

It’s common on all forums of any type.The original op’s drop a topic and you never hear from them again.Almost as bad as the people that never flush the toilet after they do their thing.

Mr Kopeka must have read this thread and got angered. He is currently -7 and lapping the field at the PGA

That's brilliant! Koepka's caddy makes a post on Koepka's favorite golf forum (MGS) under a fake name (Edveed) talking about golfers being wusses.. Koepka reads the post, gets all fired up and wins the Championship.. Caddy gets 10%. Well played sir!

You can stop making ketchup and I would be fine with that.

Sauerkraut, onions, and spicy mustard for my hot dogs.

 

I love Ketchup. I put both ketchup AND mustard on a hot dog.

Not looking to start a conflict but immediately posts a topic that will definitely start a conflict. LOL

Look, I'm not one you'd call athletic in terms of my physique, but I can tell you as someone who's played a lot of sports growing up and done them all at very high levels, golf was by far the hardest sport I ever learned how to play. Athleticism doesn't make a good golfer. It can help but it's not the be all end all.

And why should that even matter? If you're capable of playing on tour, who gives a hoot what your physique is? Plus there's more than a few examples of guys playing on tour who would be considered athletes at any level and that didn't stop the Johnny Millers of the world from criticizing them for getting too jacked.

It's a pointless argument to make. Golf isn't a sport that demands the perfect physique. That should be celebrated because it means anyone can make it to the professional level regardless if they're 350lbs or 150lbs. It doesn't matter. If you're good at golf, you're good at golf. Period.

Well my thread really took some different twists and turns on the subject.Ive worked out with Div 1+semi pro baseball-pro: hockey-football-wrestling-track and field stars.And pound for pound they are some of the strongest individuals I’ve ever met.Easily benching well over their weight.And at times doubling it.And all other weight lifting protocols are jaw dropping totals.

Now when I’ve worked next to Div1 - semi pro -pro touring golfers. In my observations and experiences.Their  actual physical strength is very average — below standards.On the muscle build side of training they really lack the abilities that many other athletes excel in.But yet they can hit a golf ball massive distances with unparalleled accuracy.

Im a long time lifter and amateur body builder.Physical appearance and strength has always been my goal.And what I look for in others.Always extremely impressed how small physical builds are so effective in golf.One of the few sports endeavors that doesn’t take advantage of  building and utilizing muscle
