Five Exercises to master your Golf Swing. The perfect swing is the dream of every golfer. Most of golfers don’t realize is that the quality of their club is not what will ultimately lower their handicap. Instead, it’s the golfer’s overall strength and flexibility that will improve their swing and shave strokes off their game.
Get in the habit of doing a few stretching exercises before every round of golf. Here are some of the suggested stretching exercises:
Stand up straight, flex your upper body (from the hip up) towards the left with arms stretched out and then to the right.
Get into a stride position, place your hands on your right thigh let your back knee drop towards the floor while you stretch both arms over your head.
Sit in a squat position, knees open and lift both your hands over your head. Stand up for a while, maintaining that position, then slowly stretch arms back to your sides.
Twist the torso towards your flexed knees and hold the position for a while.
Some of these exercises are also great warm ups before a golf game. Remember to repeat exercises in the set of 5 or 10 keeping your strength and stamina in mind. Consult your health professional before doing any of the above exercises.
Stanford International Pro-Am – Round Two
The shoulder is a part of your body structure that is heavily involved in all phases of golf.
Try rotating your shoulders to the left and then to the right as often as possible. This exercise will help you manage your stance during golfing.
Lie on your right side with bent knees, palms clasped and arms straight in front of you. With your knees on the ground, rotate your upper body in the other direction and repeat the same move to the left and right sides.
And be sure to balance yourself while you are at it. With this exercise early release and scoop will be a thing of the past and in no time you will be able to put the holes and hit the targets.
Please note, you should consult your doctor before doing any shoulder exercises; so as not to further strain the shoulders.
Take brisk walks every now and then
While playing on the golf course, you will constantly have to walk from one point to another. So, it is invariably an important and basic exercise for all golfers. Whenever you can, ditch the ride and take short distance walks around your neighborhood.
Back strengthening exercises
Golf players who aren’t doing adequate back exercises are likely to have problems with their swing as this will affect your posture not to mention the excruciating back pains you’ll experience. Carry out these simple exercises to strengthen your back.
Bend forward at the hips and touch the floor with your fingers.
Step into a stride position and extend your left leg then lift your right arm, rotate the spine and head and maintain this position for 10 seconds.
Lay flat on your back
Stand with legs together, hands hanging loose by your sides and lean backwards, hold the position for about five seconds then come back up.
In addition to these exercises, use GSRN’s Timing Improver. This program lets you practice indoor and master the technique of swing. All you need is three minutes every day and you will notice the difference.
Most of the common flaws amateur golfers experience is the result of poor posture. This can cause lower back pain as well as pain in the wrist and elbow. Inability to maintain good posture can also lead to mishits. This is not all, it becomes difficult to hook the ball and you end up blocking the ball. You hit the ball from inside sending it in the wrong direction. This can be prevented through exercises that strengthen the abdomen (lower parts of the body) and the gluts.
Two easy exercises that you can try are:
Stand feet together looking straight, bend your knees slightly, to remove any tension and stay in the position for a while
In the above position, lean forward a little and shift the center of gravity to the mid foot instead of the heels. This will also open the chest and allow the natural flow of air.
Do these exercises as often as possible to enhance your balance, once again checking with your health professional beforehand.
