Golf Stretches for Your Next Vacation or at Home


Many of us getting ready to go on vacation are starting to pull our dusty golf clubs and (let’s face it) rusty golf swing out of the closet. Before you head out for your Holiday golf game make sure that your golf swing and game is up to par! (I couldn’t help myself).

To really perfect your golf swing this year there are a few key things to focus on. Flexibility is one of those important components to have for a great swing. It gives an individual the ability to allow their fascia ligaments and muscle move through a healthy range of motion which can only help your golf swing even more.

To truly achieve optimal stretching you should repeat the following stretches 3-4 times a week.
