But let’s just say, hypothetically, you don’t have 10 hours a day to work on your game. Troy enjoys a mix of bodyweight plyometrics, yoga, and pilates – all of which could certainly be incorporated into the average gym-goer’s routine, one hour-long class at a time.
But there’s one exercise she believes has changed her game more than anything else.
“I notice a difference when I really work on my core and don’t slack on my core strength,” Troy said. “It’s really important – not only for just the swing, but also for your back health. I notice that when it’s stronger I have less lower back pain, or any kind of back pain.”
“I think for any age, but younger golfers especially – start with that,” she continued. “People neglect (core workouts), thinking, ‘Oh, I can go run’ or ‘I can lift arm weights,’ but there’s really no substitute.”
