Former touring professional Claudine Foong has teamed up with Golf Digest Middle East in a new golf fitness series designed to take your game to the next level in 2017.
The Dubai-based Canadian wellness and performance coach is no stranger to Golf Digest Middle East, having collaborated in previous fitness videos as well as interviewing nine-time major champion Gary Player for the magazine.
At 81 years young, Player remains one of the fittest golfers on the planet.

Now a PXG Middle East ambassador, Foong begins the new series with the “Farmer Carry”. Shot on location at Trump International Golf Club, Dubai, the exercise activates the all-important core muscles, promotes shoulder and pelvic stability and increases grip strength.
Stay tuned for more golf fitness videos from the Ontario-native, who played collegiate golf at Gardner Webb University in North Carolina and spent three seasons playing professionally – including on The Futures (now Symetra) Tour and in Canada and Florida – before devoting her career to wellness and performance coaching.
Foong is married to Canadian PGA Professional and fellow PXG Ambassador Alex Riggs who recently produced this excellent short game tip for Golf Digest Middle East.
