Video Golf Tip | Stretches for Seniors

Here is a tip for a senior golfer. A lot of golfers have flexibility problems and I know a lot of seniors will spend time during the day working out. What I want them to do is some stretching exercises that they incorporate into their routine, something that will help them out with their golf swing. What I will have them do is take a club or broomstick, it does not matter, and the first thing I will have them do is put the club or broomstick on the back of their shoulders. Then I will have them turn back and forth, just let the body move the way it wants to. One of the big problems you have in the golf swing is that people have a tendency to sway. We want to get that circular motion engrained. After we have done this for a little while I will have them put the club behind their back in the crook of their arms. Then do the same thing, back and forth, stretch those muscles out. Last thing I will do is have them lower the club down beneath their butt and basically pull themselves forward this way and this way. Once again I have them turning the whole time. This will take care of two things. It will help you with your stretching, stretch out those muscles, and it will add to your flexibility and also help us get rid of that swaying problem that many seniors have.
