Monthly Golf Tips by the Mel Sole Golf School.

In last month’s video golf tip, How to Generate More Swing Power, I taught you about the finer points of attaining a powerful backswing. You’ll have a lot of trouble generating the required torque though if you have problems getting into the full shoulder turn position. The solution? Flexibility. Do these three basic golf stretches every day to maintain your flexibility and maximize your golf swing power!

This month I cover The 3 Fundamental Golf Stretches that I use each time before I play.  I start each warm-up session with these stretches, use the Orange Whip to finish off before I start hitting balls.  These stretches not only help my golf swing but prevent injury in the future!

Stretch #1.

Take an alignment stick (or a club) and hold it above your head. Lean over sideways and stretch your lats as far as you can,  Do each side twice.  Do this movement slowly.  If the muscles feel tight, at your maximum stretch hold for 10 seconds, take a deep breath, breathe out and stretch slightly more. There is no hurry with this one.  Take your time.

Stretch #2.

Hold the alignment stick (or club) out in front of you.  Go into your address position with still holding the club in front of you.  Make a backswing, keeping both arms straight.  This gives a great stretch to the lower and upper back.  Do both sides back and forth to get a maximum stretch.  Again, do this slowly.

Stretch #3.

If you have an Orange Whip use that to swing back and forth, slowly increasing downswing and follow-through speed.  If you do not have an Orange Whip, use two clubs, usually your Sand Wedge and Lob Wedge.

I cannot stress enough – the slower you do these stretches, the more the body will loosen up!
