As we get older, as our time gets scarcer, and as we get a little more complacent, our bodies start to get a little stiffer than when we were younger, bulletproof and made out of rubber. Two of those areas that really affect our golf swing are our shoulders and trunk.
As our bodies get older, it’s important that our exercises and workouts evolve to not only work on our weaknesses, but perhaps more importantly, take advantage of our strengths. With that in mind, Jeff has put together a short video that will take you by the hand and walk you through six simple, yet super-effective exercises for 50+ golfers.
In the first segment of the video, Jeff explains how you’re losing speed and distance by not properly making the connection between the ground, your feet and your back-to-front weight shift.
In the first segment of the video, Jeff demonstrates an extremely simple assessment to determine your level of mobility.
As a golfer, you are constantly working on your game. The goal is to always get better from one round to the next. Your constant practice and effort is an ongoing battle. And like most golfers, you probably feel that some days you make huge progress, and on others, it’s like you’ve never touched a club. The battle never ends.
Every golfer has their own warm-up routine when they get to the course.
You may get there an hour early and bang a bucket of balls on the range, you may stretch for 5-10 minutes before you head to #1, or you may be the guy screeching into the parking lot who takes a few swings on the tee box and off you go (the “Trunk Slammer”).
