Golf Exercises - Three Great Reasons to Do Them
by Rick Cole

Golf exercises are not just for the Tiger Woods of the world. They're for everyone interested in bettering their game. As a matter of fact, I'll go a step further. They're for everyone interested in increasing their enjoyment of the game. Want to increase your drive? How about your accuracy putting on the green? Do you get a little fatigued after the first five holes? Golf exercises are the cure! Best of all, it doesn't take that long each day to do them.

Golf Exercises and Your Drive

Not everyone is born a Tiger Woods, or even a Padraig Harrington. Having said that, everyone can have a very decent drive, good putting, and play a decent short game...and do this for eighteen holes without your game deteriorating over the back nine. One way to rapidly better your game is to strengthen your core and increase your range of motion.

Golf Exercises: Your Core

Golf isn't a sport that requires tremendous strength in your extremities, like football. It is a sport that requires a very stable core with a lot of muscular stamina. Ever had the problem of your game deteriorating after playing a few holes? A big part of the reason is your core is weak. The muscles that hold you up and stabilize you need work.

For the purposes of talking about exercises for golf, we can think of the core as that part of your torso from underneath your chest to just below your hips. Core strength is central to all athletic activity, whether it's swimming, boxing, or golf. But it's crucial for golf. What makes you stable and also what gives you the fine control you need for golf comes from your core strength. So, the main area your golf exercises need to address is core strength.

Golf Exercises: Flexibility

The other major reason to do these exercises is to increase flexibility and range of motion. One of the big things that separates professional from amateur golfers is the flexibility of their shoulders and top of the back, which lets you have a complete backswing. Your backswing is like winding up a spring. The more you can wind it up, the more power you unleash with the swing.

Golf Exercises: Injury prevention

The single most prevalent injury for golfers, amateur or professional, is lower back injuries. Makes sense. Your lower back is involved in absolutely everything you do in golf. You bend over your club when you swing. You twist your hips and lower back when you swing. The lower back takes a lot of punishment.

Combine this with the fact that, unless you do exercises like these golf exercises, there are probably some imbalances in your body that affect your back strength and flexibility. The right golf exercises can help prevent injuries by increasing both core strength and also basic flexibility.
