If you arrive at the course just in time for your tee time but have five minutes to spare before you tee off, try this stretch demonstrated by Ken Pierce of Golfgym.com. It uses all the “golf-specific” muscles in your torso and upper body. As Ken is using, instead of the car, use the golf cart as you wait on the first tee before your round begins. You won’t be sorry!
You may very well be the exception, but even though we know better, golfers in general, do not like to properly get ready before playing or practicing. Frankly, only a small percentage of golfers even take the time to practice, let alone beforehand.
There are so many articles, TV programs, coaches and trainers with different ideas on the proper way to get ready for a round of golf that it can be quite puzzling as to what to do first. There are different methods of stretching as well.
Static stretching is where you get into a position and hold it for 10 to 15 seconds.
This type of stretching has been found to actually slow down your fast twitch muscles that are critical to performing a fast golf swing. “Dynamic” means your body is continuously moving during the stretch. It is generally more golf specific because it should involve a twisting or swinging motion. Dynamic stretching is also better because it helps to warm up the muscles that will be used throughout the round.
