What are some bodyweight only exercises I can do to improve my golf game?

Being able to control one's own bodyweight in all planes of motion is part of being a great athlete. Push-ups, pull-ups, prisoner squats, and lunges are all examples of exercises that can be done without equipment and can help build strength and endurance needed for golf.
