The Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) has found several correlations between the" Deep Squat" and the GOLF SWING. The ability to Deep Squat also plays an important role in many everyday activities.
They find that “research has shown that any limitation in performing a full deep overhead squat can force a player to early extend during the downswing. These limitations may alter a good address position and force players to change their spinal posture throughout the golf swing.” In addition, good performance on the Deep Squat test has recently been found to a predictor of the ability of a track and field athlete to reach a new PERSONAL BEST throughout a season. For those who have trouble with the Deep Squat, Dr. Greg Rose of the Titleist Performance Institute demonstrates an exercise that can help correct the Deep Squat.
