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

1. Basic Competency

Stand tall with a club behind your neck and one foot positioned your shin's length behind the other. Lunge forward to touch the back knee to the front heel. To pass, your front foot must stay flat, and your torso should remain upright with the club level.
