Golf Fitness Begins With Proper Stretching

Golf fitness not only pertains to exercise away from the golf course, but proper stretching before a workout and before golfing is very important!

Exercise for Golfers

1. Hold a golf club out in front of your chest and arms extended.
2. Rotate your trunk and shoulders to the left side until a stretch is felt in your torso. Return to the starting position and repeat to the other side.

You can't over-emphasize the importance of properly stretching before playing golf. Golf fitness is important, even if you plan on riding in a cart, which I personally think takes away from the game.
