Hamstring Stretch

Start by standing with one foot forward and your heel placed on the floor. Next, slowly lean forward until a stretch is felt behind your knee/thigh. Bend through your hips and not your spine. Hold, then return to starting position and repeat.

Horizontal Shoulder Abduction

Start by holding an elastic band in front of your chest with your elbows straight. Then, pull your arms apart and towards the side. Return to starting position and repeat.

Upper Trap Stretch

Begin by retracting your head back into a chin tuck position. Next, place one hand behind your back and gently pull your head towards the opposite side with the help of your other arm.

Trunk Rotation

Place your club behind your shoulders and then gently rotate your trunk back and forth through the normal range of motion of the golf swing.

Rows with Scapular Retraction

Facing tubing with arms out, pull elbows backwards, squeezing shoulder blades together. Keep upright posture and shoulders back.

Hip Flexor Stretch

Assume a half-kneeling position with your right leg down. Do a pelvic tilt by contracting your lower abdominals and the right glute. Then glide your hips forward until you feel a stretch in front of the right hip.
