Planet Fitness genius practices putting with weights; is this the future of golf fitness?

February 01, 2023

Sometimes the biggest ideas come from where you least expect them. Martin Luther’s 95 theses nailed to a door, Post-it Notes accidentally being made when developing a super-strong adhesive and now this random guy using weights at a local gym to practice putting.

Perhaps you go to the gym to do tris and thighs like some plebeian, but now you can use the weights for what they’re actually made for. Putting practice.

Never leave a shot short again, and be ready for inclement weather no matter where it might strike.

We’re in the middle of some rough golfing months, but that doesn’t mean the grind stops. By the time the summer rolls around, your arms will be strong enough to putt from the middle of the fairway. With this new fitness regimen on your side, the only thing limiting you is your imagination.
