Golf has traditionally been viewed as a non-physical athletic activity; often thought of as a kind of sporting version of lawn croquet!! But the truth is quite the contrary. All of the fundamental requirements golf places on the body for rotation, motion, balance, strength and hand-eye coordination are equal to or greater than the requirements for any other athletic activity.
A commitment of 20 to 30 minutes daily of stretching and exercising can regain the dysfunctional body’s ability to move and function properly. Regardless of age, the body has the capacity to regain its function very rapidly. Even… if you don’t play golf.
Just a simple, consistent Stretching Program will make muscles stronger, (believe it or not) and will help greatly in avoiding injuries.Many past attitudes of “it’s a non-physical athletic game" are changing. Today, most all the Tour players know they must have some sort of a stretching-exercise program to compete at the highest level AND avoid injuries.
