Back9 TOUR Services Team for the 2018 – 2019 TOUR Season includes:
“Jeff is a huge part of my team because he keeps my body working properly. He pushes me in the gym, helping me gain mobility & strength while recognizing my limitations. He travels as much as I do, so he is a constant presence. He is always willing to do whatever needs to be done for the Team, whether it involves therapy or not. He is a respected guy in his field, but also as a person.”
~ William McGirt, Winner 2016 The Memorial Tournament
“Jeff was instrumental in recognizing my left hip impingement and getting me in to see one of the top specialists in Nashville this past spring. Without Jeff’s daily help, I wouldn’t have bee able to compete on tour from April – September this past year.”
~ William McGirt, PGA TOUR Player post left hip surgery, November 2018
“When it comes to hands-on body work for golf, there is no better team. The bottom line is I play better when I am working with Back9 Tour Services!”
~ Michael Allen, Winner of 2009 Senior PGA Championship
“Thanks for all your help. You and your team are great at what you do! All the best.”
~ Steve Elkington, 10-time PGA TOUR® winner, including the 1995 PGA Championship, 1991 and 1997 Players Championships
“My swing has always depended on timing. When it was on it was great, when it wasn’t, I hit it awful. By nullifying my weak body parts, I am now so much more stable. I can hold my golf posture throughout the swing and repeat the right body positions without worrying about timing. So basically, my bad days now are where my goods used to be, and my good days are way beyond. It’s been huge!”
~ Rory Sabbatini, 6-time PGA TOUR® winner, including 2011 The Honda Classic
Consider the case of Jason Bohn, who received a note from Tim Finchem offering his best wishes before undergoing back surgery to remove a disk fragment lodged behind the nerve cavity. In surgery, Bohn’s spinal cord was cut, requiring two more operations. For 32 days, he was bedridden and couldn’t lift his head above his waist. “I wasn’t thinking golf,” Bohn said. “I was thinking about being able to get up so I could play with my kids.”
Due to this experiences, Jason hired a physical-therapy team, Back9 TOUR Services a division of Back9Fitness®, which travels the TOUR and provides fitness, training, massage therapy and nutrition expertise to several clients. Bohn spends 6 – 7 hours per week getting his body ready to play. “I’ll probably have to rehab and use Back9 until the day I stop playing golf or the day I go 6 feet under, whichever comes first,” he said.
When Bohn won the Zurich Classic of New Orleans in April, his team of therapists was among the first he publicly thanked.
