In fact there is no single genuine golf exercise program that does not include stretching exercises. That is how critical stretching exercises for golf are.

Actually there are many types of stretching exercises for golf. Some of them can comfortably be done in the office while you are still seated on your chair in your workstation. And probably when you have a few minutes to spare or you need to spend a moment or two thinking about something, maybe a decision you have to make. You can easily do your thinking as you execute the simple stretch exercises.

In the picture to the right, you’ll see I’m in my office taking a little break from the grind of running my golf training website and shipping products. This stretching exercise for golf should be repeated reaching out for the other side of your chair.

There are also stretching exercises for golf that should be done with tubing, and a stability ball. Others are done using a medicine ball. Most of them are described in other golf exercise articles I’ve written on my site.

The reason why a stretching exercise for golf are so effective in improving the golf swing and eliminating back pain is because they put your body in the exact same positions either rotationally or from a golf posture standpoint that stretch the muscles like no other stretch or general exercise program could do.

This will remove the tension in your swing due to restricted muscles, and enable your golf swing to feel more comfortable and free-flowing, allowing maximum clubhead speed and ultimately distance. The results will be quick and dramatic!

There are dozens and dozens of effective stretching exercises for golf that will have a profound impact on your golf swing, game and body. There’s no denying golf is a physical game…and you need to work on your “machine” to maximize your results.
