In today’s video, a patient performs a rotational strength exercise that directly translates to his swing.  With the use of a cable machine, the patient takes a staggering athletic stance with his weight on his front foot and rear foot on a BOSU ball.  The patient holds the cable handle with two hands and rotates in a controlled fashion to pull the weight from beside his body to extend forward in front of him.  This activity challenges the muscles of his shoulder girdle and arms as well as being an excellent core movement specific to the rotational movement in the transverse plane of swinging a golf club.  The athlete keeps his hips stable and facing forward at all times.  Check out the video below.
