SWING THE BALANCE
Flexibility may be the most important factor in making a successful golfer. Practise these two exercises three to five days a week:
1/ Dynamic Twists Lie flat and cross your right leg over your left, with your left hand on your right knee. Rotate to the left, bringing your right arm to shoulder height. Inhale and externally rotate your right shoulder, bending your elbow and bringing your hand towards your head. Exhale and internally rotate your right shoulder, bringing your right hand towards your waist. Repeat five to 10 times and switch sides. Both these stretches will improve your backswing and alleviate swing faults.
2/ Window Washers Lie on your back with your feet placed close to your glutes, wider than hip-width apart. Inhale and lower both your knees to the right. Exhale as you return to the starting position. Repeat 10 times in each direction.
