Want better posture and more fluid movement to enable you to get into the positions you want in the golf swing? Want to develop effortless power and improve your mental game? All with just one easy to implement technique?
My name is Nick Buchan, I am a golf fitness specialist and coach here at Stronger Golf.
Many of my client's come to me frustrated at their inability to get the club in the positions they want, get more mobility in the golf swing or express as much as speed as they want in the swing, despite hitting the gym regularly and religiously stretching.
What they, often, fail to understand is the role of biomechanics and position in determining how a muscle moves and produces force. In short, it is the foundation. When a joint is a correct position it can move with all its inherent degrees of freedom, and a muscle force production is on something of a bell curve it will produce more force in that centred position too.
Now of course strength training, power work, traditional joint mobilisations all play a huge role in delivering these results, but one tool that I kept finding myself adding to clients programs again was positional breathing drills. Positional breathing simply did a better job than anything else of helping my clients establish good position from which to move and generate power, the results were near miraculous time and time again.
I'm an evidence-based practice guy so naturally, I wanted to know if any research had been done to back up my anecdotal findings. Yes was the emphatic answer!
Studies have found that stretching alone is ineffective for changing tissue extensibility range of motion (ROM) at a joint, yet once diaphragmatic breathing is added both tissue extensibility and joint ROM improved significantly!
Ancient exercise forms had been promoting breathing for over 2000 years as a method of promoting health and longevity (talk about longevity creating world-class performance!)
One of those ancient forms of exercise, Tai Chi, has been demonstrated via a large meta-study, to improve improving balance, single-leg stability as well as aerobic capacity and lower limb strength. There is also good evidence for improved sleep, better cognitive capacity, wellbeing and performance through helping you attain a flow state. Not only that but the positions also had great validity in achieving the positional changes I was after to improve joint mechanics and power output
I was sold and so I sought out someone who could enhance my understanding of these techniques.
With this in mind, I connected with Tai-Chi and golf performance expert Jayne Storey. Jayne has 30
years experience with Tai-Chi and has been working with golfers to improve performance through
Tai-Chi since 2002, including working with the PGA’s professional development program, so you
know she is pretty much the best around!
Fast forward to today and myself and Jayne have put together a pretty special bundle that brings
all the benefits I saw from positioning breathing and turns the volume up on them with the specific
goal of improving your golf game, your workouts and your overall health.

What others are saying about Tai-Chi for golf...
"Just thought I’d let you know that my daily practice is going well. I’m getting a lovely feeling of power in your Tai Chi-style address position; drives getting out to 250 yards, irons going ridiculously far. Also, during 2 rounds over the weekend I finally got properly into using your breathing exercises and was delighted with the results – the fantastic feeling of release through the ball in the direction I wanted it to go – so thanks so much for this, it’s a keeper!”
David Young – 10 handicap, Rotterdam
“So it happened........I played in a competition on Saturday and won it! This is the first major competition I have ever won! I shot 1 over par and won by 2 shots. I used the Standing Meditation technique on the last 5 holes when I knew I had a good score. I can’t tell you how happy I am with the way I was able to control my emotions when the pressure was on, not least of all when I birdied the last the hole by sinking a 25ft putt”.
Jeremy – 7 handicap, Oxfordshire
“I played 9 holes last Friday with no mechanical thought, only your swing feelings – focus on my navel, empty chest and rooted in my feet – and shot my best score of the year for 9 holes a 42. I only had 3 less than optimal swings and even those were good misses!!! Clearing my mind, trusting my mechanics, and feeling my feet throughout the swing made a big difference! Thank you and I will keep you posted on my progress”.
