Golf stretching: When taking on the game of golf, you will want to take the time to develop controlled flexibility. You want all your body parts to be moving and rotating a certain way to carry out that flawless shot. Golf is a game that involves the entire body, from head to toe. Having the right angle, the right stance, rotating the body the right way are necessary to make that flawless shot. And it cannot be stressed enough how important it is to keep your body in tune so that these movements become routine. You will want to get to the level where all these body rotations become second nature to you.
Everything has to move in correct pattern. Controlled flexibility is the goal. There are 120 joints that are at play. All these joints will need to be rotated in the correct pattern to make that desired shot. Any incorrect rotation of a joint can lead to a flawed shot. When making that drive shot, not standing correctly or having a faulty swing can lead to a hook or a slice. Every joint of the body has to be in sync and properly rotated. That is where controlled flexibility comes into play. You want to develop it enough to where things become second nature.
Get to the point where the rotations become comfortable. You want it programmed into your brain as routine. It is important to develop the correct rotation pattern from the start. Undoing a specific pattern takes a lot longer to undo than learning a new pattern. You will spend a lot more time undoing than if you were to learn it correctly the first time. And you will want to warm up and tune your body regularly. It is much like taking care of a car and getting it prepped for a big race. You take good care of it and ensure the proper tune-ups to carry out a smooth race. It is the same with the body and golf.
Some people think golf looks easy because the players are not running around and chasing after each other for the ball. Golf is a game where the ball is stationary. It can be viewed as a game that is not that active. But contrary to what many think, golf is a game that requires extraordinary concentration and a great deal of physical strength. This cannot be stressed enough. And it requires and demands great controlled flexibility. It is necessary to be skilled.
With the 120 joints that take part in the game, you want every movement to be comfortable and second nature. That is why practicing those warm ups is so important. Tune your body to make it ready for that game. You want everything moving the proper way.
Golf is a game that requires a high level of dedication. The amount of practice and concentration that goes into a game is extraordinary. But preparing needs to be consistent.
