Golf Stretching Guide to Improve Your Game

By: Mike Pedersen

If you're looking for a quick way to improve distance in your swing, you might want to get a golf stretching guide as a reference to give you stretches for your golf warm up; stretching on the course as your muscles fatigue and tighten; stretching exercises for after golf to avoid post golf soreness; and "off the course" stretches to stay limber throughout your day.

So many golfers look in the wrong direction to improve distance. They purchase new golf drivers; long distance golf balls, and even gimmicky training aids in hopes to hit longer drives. The result is usually always the same. No increase in distance, and maybe even a loss of accuracy.

Where you should be looking is into the physical limitations wreaking havoc on your golf swing technique and power. The first area is flexibility. With aging comes physical decline. This decline is both in strength AND flexibility. Declining in both of these results in a much lower golf swing efficiency and performance.

The quickest and easiest approach is stretching. This requires no equipment and can be done in chunks throughout the day. Having a golf stretching guide as your resource will make it so simple, there'll be no excuse not to do it.

You should make sure your stretching for golf resource or book has easy to follow, step by step instructions, illustrations, and even benefits to your golf swing. Having all this in one place makes it very easy to stay motivated and focused on our goal of more distance in your swing, and ultimately lower golf scores.

Make sure the stretching you do is specific to your golf swing, and even more specific to your personal limitations, which could be anything from tight hamstrings, no core rotation, to tight shoulders making it difficult, if not impossible to get to the top of your backswing consistently.

Golf stretch exercises are obviously less vigorous than strength training, making it choice number one for improving distance, consistency and power. That's not to discount the importance of strength training for golf. Improving your strength will not only increase your power exponentially, but you will prevent many, if not all future golf injuries from overuse.

The benefits of BOTH strength and flexibilit are critical to your golf improvement goals. Don't skip your strength, but DO work on your flexibility with a stretching for golf resource as mentioned above.
