Get better at the sports you play and the life you lead at STACK. Improve your training, nutrition and lifestyle with daily

PGA golfer Stewart Cink begins his charge through the 2011 Masters today, 25 years after the legendary Jack Nicklaus won a record sixth title at Augusta National. Since then, professional golf has become much more competitive, with many players emphasizing strength training. So if you want your drive to land anywhere near Cink's, you'd better take a look at the video below, where he explains his stance and set-up.

In the next video, PGA Tour conditioning coach Christopher Noss, who trains Cink, explains how doing the Push Pivot exercise can benefit a golfer's swing. Noss says, "With this, we're really working [the lats] through a different range of motion, so we try and strengthen that shoulder girdle." He also allows for a pivot to simulate a live golf swing as much as possible.

The next four days promise to be an exhilarating experience for Cink, but we at STACK know he's physically and mentally prepared for the task—and having won the 2009 British Open doesn't hurt either!
