Is Golf Good Cross-Training? January 3, 2008

Could golf be good cross-training for triathletes?

I was just thinking about this. While the technique doesn’t exactly translate to a nice swim stroke, and walking the course isn’t exactly a marathon, there is something useful – focus.

I think the mental game of golf can help you learn to focus and keep a sharp mind.

And if you think golf is boring, keeping focused despite the boredom will be great for teaching you to keep focused when you’re in pain!
