Stretch Your Way to Better Golf
Most people take a few practice swings and then begin their golf game without ever doing a pre-stretch routine. Then they wonder why their back, neck, shoulders and elbows begin aching. It is worth taking an extra few minutes to stretch.
Here are a few suggestions to do at home or on the golf course.
Hip Flexor: Stand with your feet in a split position, right leg forward. Keep your upper body tall and bend both knees slightly. Press your left hip forward until you feel a stretch in the front of the hip and thigh. Hold. This will increase hip and back flexibility.
Slow motion golf swing: Using a golf club perform a slow motion golf swing. Move through the setup, backswing and follow-through. Repeat 5 times.
Neck Rotation: Stand facing a wall. Place your right palm flat on the wall at shoulder height. Raise your chest and lower your shoulders. Slowly rotate your head and chest to the left, looking over your left shoulder. Keep your chin level with the floor. Rotate your head and chest back to the right side. Repeat several times and switch arms.
Back Rotation: Sit on a bench with your knees slightly wider than hip-width, fleet flat on the floor, holding a golf club behind your shoulders. Raise your upper body to lengthen your spine-shoulders down, chest lifted. Tighten the abdominal muscles. Keeping the abs contracted, slowly rotate to the right as far as you comfortably can. Hold and take two deep breaths, trying to rotate a little further with each exhalation. Continue to sit tall as you rotate back to the center, then twist to the other side. Repeat five times in each direction.
These are just a few tips on stretching. Dr. Maloof has a handout of golf stretches. Please stop by the office and you can pick one up!!
