Video Golf Tip | Foot Relaxation Exercise

So this is the first of three exercises we are going to do to fire the muscles in the upper trunk and get rid of that tightness in our lower legs. The first one is just massaging the bottom of our feet with a spiky ball. Use a little bit of a bounce so that we are actually feeling the circulation get back to our foot. After we have been standing all day, our feet get tired. This is a great exercise to do after you play golf to get your feet to recover, it feels invigorating. Denis can actually feel as he bounces a little bit of work through his upper hamstring, buttocks and tummy, which is great. So he is massaging where it is tight and he is getting firing further up the chain of muscles. Do this for about 20 seconds and then cross over to the other foot. As you can see we are stimulating the glute muscles further up, we are loosening our flow further down and getting some firing through the chain. Denis can actually feel that in his lower tummy and buttock muscles. This moves the emphasis away from the tight leg and up to the core region. I’ll now get Denis to set up in his address position and tell me how that feels. I am certainly more aware of my feet and probably aware of some improved balance. I am also more aware behind me, my buttocks. Once again feeling some improved stability through my waist at the start of the swing.

Weak Push Shot Cure Watch Video>>

A Slice Cause: Downswing Pulling the handle of the club down to the ball during the downswing will create a slice, initiate the downswing with your hips and left shoulder
Increasing Distance: Fix the Early Release Practice this Punch Drill to avoid releasing the clubhead early during the downswing and hitting the ball short
Maintain Spine Angle to Prevent Topped Shots Topped balls are not caused by picking up your head, what you are really doing is losing your spine angle and lifting your entire body off of the ball
