The 2015 PGA tour officially ended when 22 year old Jordan Spieth rolled in the final putt and won the TOUR Championship and the FedExCup.

Over the course of the 2015 season, over 1.2 million golf shots were made, 30+ events were held and thousands of miles were traveled by players, staff and spectators.

Behind the scenes of it all are teams of trainers, chiropractors, and personnel preparing athletes to get ready to take on the grueling workload each and every week.

Leading the Chiropractic charge is Dr. Troy Van Biezen. Troy is the Chiropractor to Jordan Speith, Ricky Fowler,  Zach Johnson and a slew of others who walk the fairways every week.

Troy Van BiezenWe had a moment to catch up with Dr. Van Biezen and get his thoughts on this year.

Troy, what is your impressions of this season?  

“It is really hard to describe what happened this year. It almost seems surreal! This is my 13th year on PGA Tour and all of them combined don’t come close to this year.

My guys won 9 times this year including 3 Majors, a Players Championship, and of course Jordan’s historic climb to being the number one golfer in the world!”

“We have traveled a lot of miles traveled, slept in too many bad hotels and changed time zones way too often. It has defintiely been a grind but all worth it when you have a year like this.”

Here are the Final Results for the 2015 PGA FEDEXCUP:

What significance do you feel that Chiropractic plays in these athletes day to day activities?

“Chiropractic is critical in keeping these guys healthy and allowing them to perform at high level each and every week. We provide care for them 24 hours a day and 7 days a week if needed.” It is not uncommon to start our first treatment at 5am in the morning and not end till the final group goes off shortly before two. Then after their round, they come in for post round care and we sometimes finish our nights by checking them in their hotel rooms.

Now that the season is over, what are you looking forward most to doing?

“To be honest, it will be nice to sleep in my own bed for a couple weeks.  I can’t wait to spend some quality time with my family, take my kids out for a few dinners and just get a chance to be “dad” once again.

Unfortunately the off season is very short lived. We start fairly soon with the Frys and Vegas tournaments quickly so I plan on cherishing every moment.”

COD: Any last parting words for this season?

“There are so many things that I do with my guys it’s hard to put in a few words. The workouts, early morning warm ups (4:45am Blah), being able to have staff that help our athletes stay on top of their nutrition, hydration and the serve them with post round recovery protocols. My cap goes off to everyone involved.

I am not sure what the 2016 season will have to offer, but rest assured, myself and my team will be doing whatever is necessary to get these guys ready to play each and every week.”
