BOSTON (CBS) – Winter is officially behind us. The sun is shining. Birds are chirping. Fresh cut grass. It must be golf season, so to ring in this wonderful time of year, every Saturday on 98.5 The Sports Hub Hardy’s taking us to the links starting at 6am with interviews, training tips, fundamentals and state of the art equipment reviews with experts on The Golf Club.
Leading off Saturday’s show was Dennis Borg, a certified athletic trainer at the Micheli Center for Sports Injury Prevention in Waltham.READ MORE: Massachusetts gas prices reach new record high of $4.70 a gallon
You’re probably thinking to yourself, “What is a sports injury prevention expert doing on The Golf Club? There’s no injuries in golf!”
Borg deals with many golfers at Micheli, some who are looking to get back on the course and others looking to stay on the course.
For golfers that come through Micheli they are put through the Titleist performance institute screen, which is a series of 16 tests specific to the demands of the golf swing — that, combined with their complete medical history, allows the specialists to develop a program to help keep you injury free.
Pretty high tech stuff.
