Flexibility may be the single most important factor in making a successful golfer. If you want to achieve your ideal swing, you need to improve the mobility of those stiff shoulders, tight hips and stubborn hamstrings. Lack of flexibility can limit your distance off the tee. Flexibility allows for a full range of motion allowing you to reach your maximum potential in strength. The benefits of golf stretches are many, some of them including:
Before you being your golf stretches, make sure you warm up with five to 10 minutes of light activity, such as walking around the practice tee. And always keep in mind:
You can do this golf stretch while standing or kneeling. Clasp your hands behind your back and straighten arms. Raise your hands as high as possible and bend forward from the waist and hold.
Place one hand behind back with elbow in air. Place your other hand on elbow and gently pull towards head. Hold and repeat with other arm.
