The Science of Stretching for Golf

A golf swing is a series of compound actions that function in an organized sequence to drive a golf ball far and straight. A number of physical attributes all come together, in less than a second, to influence ball flight: strength, stability, mobility, cardiovascular fitness as well as adequate flexibility in the hips, core, and shoulder areas.

Stretching your hips, core, and shoulder areas has been proven to improve your golf game.  According to a 2015 study, a 12-week golf specific stretch program showed statistical changes on golfer’s performance. Golfer’s in the study experienced an average improvement of 13yds in driving distance and 23% increase in accuracy.
