101 Stretches for Golf

Is Lack of Flexibility
Affecting your Golf
Swing?

Find out what it takes to restore the normal range of motion in your hips, back, hamstrings and shoulders so you are feeling refreshed and ready for your next round of golf.

With over 26 million golfers nationwide, the majority of injuries, swing flaws and constant frustration all revolve around tight and restricted muscles - all of which affect your golf swing. Haven't you had enough?

The problem is most people keep blaming themselves as though it is their fault for hitting thin or fat shots, spraying balls left and right or not getting their ball in the air. Well, hopefully, I finally have good news that will make you feel better. In most of these cases, your body is only producing the swing it can within its current range of motion. In other words, change your range of motion and change your swing.

Is Drive Distance a Constant Source of Frustration for You?

No kidding! It is for so many golfers. And, why does it have to feel so difficult sometimes? The real problem with achieving drive distance has nothing to do with the club you selected! Most typically, it is tight shoulders which don't allow you to make a proper back swing and leave distance behind with an incomplete follow through position. Other times, it is one of the most common tight areas I see in the mid back. Would you believe this is the number one reason most golfers can't seem to make a proper golf swing? And, Iím not just talking about amateurs. This is true for the pros also.

Here are some of the things that may be affecting your golf swing and how the ball travels after you hit it.You may have one or more of these common swing flaws, but do you know why?

  • Reverse Pivot: Often times the result of poor spinal rotation or poor hip rotation
  • Lateral shift in your back swing or forward swing: Generally related to the need for more flexibility in the hips
  • Lack of drive distance because you canít get enough shoulder turn: Almost always the result of a tight mid back!

Did you also know that the Centinela Hospital in California did a study on golfers and found less skilled players used HALF the trunk rotation of the pro? We always knew they had a secret. But, what if you increased your trunk rotation with specific stretches targeted for this area, would you play any better?
