That is why stretching exercises are so important. When you play golf with tight muscles you risk injury. When your swing stretches tight muscles too far, inflammation can occur — or worse, small tears. Those injuries can result in pain, medical and rehab treatments. That can also prevent you from playing golf for long periods.

Parts of your body most prone to injury —

  • lower back and core muscles from the sever rotation the hips and core during a swing
  • shoulders and rotator cup muscles from rotation of the arms and shoulders
  • neck muscles from rotation of the arms and shoulder while holding neck steady
  • knees from constant leg twisting motions that occurs during a golf swing and the constant bending and flexing of the knees in lining up putts, marking golf balls, and climbing up and down hills while walking the golf course

It can’t be said enough that golf flexibility exercises are critical in avoiding the risk of golf related injuries.

Not only will you be less injury-prone as a result of stretching exercises, your golf swing will improve and you’ll be making longer and better golf shots.
