Danny Willett is already a star on the European Tour, and I’m pretty sure it won’t be long before he makes his presence known on the PGA Tour and in major Championships.  His pedigree is impressive. #1 amateur in the world in 2008, Walker Cup member, and 3-time winner of the European Tour.  He came close in the British Open this year, so look out for this young man in 2016!  This is a great swing sequence that amateurs can really learn from.  Thanks to  of Golf Digest for the captions, and thanks to  for the great pictures!

Danny Willett doesn’t always go out of his way to make you feel comfortable, and that might be why he’s such a tough competitor.

As his teacher, Mike Walker, says, “He was the No. 1 amateur in the world in 2008, so he expects a lot of himself. He’s not unfriendly. He’s single-minded.”

A 2007 Walker Cup standout from England, Willett had to learn patience as a pro. It wasn’t until 2012 that he captured the BMW International, the first of his three European Tour titles. Since then, he has put himself in position on Sunday many times. He won the Omega European Masters in July, and a week earlier, he found himself one stroke out of the 36-hole lead at the British Open at St. Andrews, and wound up finishing T-6, his best showing in a major.

As Willett refines his swing, mainly working to eliminate the miss to the left, look for great things. “He’s become a much better putter this year,” according to Walker, who says he gives Willett drills that would help the average golfer, including hitting balls with only the right or left arm. “They magnify the problem so we know what to work on,” Walker says.

I have met people in my professional life who have bodies that are far from what we see as “athletic.”  

However, some of these people are awesome golfers and I can never forget the first American I ever met.  I was an assistant golf professional at Royal Johannesburg Golf Club and we had a large rotund member by the name of Sam Mc Cready.  Sam was a +2 handicap!  So yes, fitness is important for longevity and healthy life, but definitely not a requirement for good golf!  Ken Pierce of golfgym.com points out two super players.  One on the European Tour and one on the LPGA Tour who lacks an athletic body, yet has climbed to the top of their profession showing incredible golf skills!

Congratulations to Inbee Park & Kiradech Aphibarnrat on their wins this past weekend! Inbee Park is the World #1 Woman Player, and won her 7th Major Championship, the Ricoh Women’s British Open on Sunday. Kiradech Aphibarnrat is from Thailand and won his second European Tour title of the year on Sunday when he beat Robert Karlsson on the final hole to clinch the Paul Lawrie Matchplay.

These golfers are two great examples of, and make my point that, GOLF FITNESS IS NOT MEASURED BY YOUR WAISTLINE. Golf Fitness is based on your performance on the golf course. It is based on your ability to perform golf shots consistently and repeatedly…not whether you have six pack abs.

Your Golf Skill Level is not Determined by your Waistline!

Someone reading this post might think that I am being insensitive to these two young golfers. Actually, my theory that Golf Fitness is not measured by your waistline could not be more valid than for these two professional golfers.
