Improve Your Golf Game
Improve your golf game with a new approach. Join Edie Gudaitis and Golf Pro Tony Rubes on July 23 as they help you develop a practical stretching routine. This introductory clinic combines basic movements, yoga positions and mindfulness to improve your driving distance, gain more rotation and reduce lower back discomfort.
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.

This workshop will introduce golfers to basic yoga movements and stretches that can be included in a regular stretching routine, and provide practical tips on applying them to your swing.
