I have worked with hundreds of junior golfers and results are always same. Within a very short time of introducing strength training there is always a remarkable improvement in their drives. Typically drives can improve by as much as 50 yards within a very short period of time.
What all this means is that in this day and age, learning to play golf without physical fitness training and conditioning is wrong approach that even opens doors to other dangers like injury. Golfers elbow is easier to get when a golfer is not physically fit and does not warm up properly before holding a golf club.
A golfer who approaches game with physical fitness in mind has a huge advantage over their counterpart who does not. Those who shun exercises will usually be slower in developing right technique in golf swing and other crucial aspects of game.
So truth is that you cannot divorce physical fitness from learning to play golf.
