Optimal alignment is essential for a reliable and powerful golf swing. It also prevents overuse injuries which are common in golf, both professional and amateur.

The most common injuries are to the low back, elbow and shoulder and are caused by poor mobility and dysfunctional movement patterns.

Dysfunctional movement patterns (biomechanics) can decrease power and increase the likelihood of injury by developing:

  • Joint dysfunction
  • Muscle imbalances
  • Poor golf swing

Did you know!? To have a perfect backswing and set up to create power in your drive, your whole body needs to create rotation.

Shoulders 75-100’

Hips 45’

Rear arm abducted 90’

If any segment of your body; hips, thoracic (upper mid back) or shoulders lack dynamic range of motion (flexibility) you won’t be able to rotate enough to generate an effective backswing. Golf specific mobility exercises can greatly improve your backswing and reduce the likelihood of a lower back or shoulder injury.

Try these three golf specific mobility exercises to improve rotation in the thoracic (upper mid back) and shoulders. Use it as a warm up before hitting the driving range or gym and notice how you move, feel and perform better!
