Professional golfers make it look easy, but did you know that the golf swing is actually one of the most difficult and complicated movements in all of sports, requiring stability in some joints and flexibility in others. The ability to coordinate motion, strength, and function throughout the swing plays a large role in preventing injuries. A better swing means a more accurate ball strike, greater distance, and less stress on the muscles and joints.
Golfers of all ages and abilities should make a habit of the following:
- Warm up and stretch before teeing off. Spend at least 20 minutes warming up and stretching.
- Remember cardiovascular conditioning. Fatigue can result in poor performance due to a lack of coordinated body movements.
