Take The Golf Digest Combine To See How You Stack Up

Go through the Golf Digest combine and you'll know. Staff Writer Max Adler and Functional Movements Systems founder Gray Cook test your fitness with basic competency, core stability and balance exercises. Coordination is the key to excellence, Cook says; pass all 3 phases* and you have the potential for greatness.

* When applicable, do each test with your left and right side.

Golf Digest Combine

While maintaining a club directly over your head, drop into a squat position. To pass, both heels must stay on the floor as your hips descend lower than your knees. Your knees also should stay directly over your feet.
