Why Warm-Up for Golf


By Ramsay McMaster - Posted on 31 July 2008

Why you should warm-up before golf

Probably the most common question I am asked by golfers around the world is:

“Can you give me a quick golf warm-up before I play or practice?”

Remember, a good, efficient & functional warm up is better than a bad warm up or no warm up at all.

A short burst of efficient exercise is not only going to help you prepare for golf but will also allow you to get into some form of “golf zone” on the first tee as you leave your worries and stress in the golf club car park.

However, warming-up properly is not as simple as swinging a couple of clubs, touching your toes a few times, holing a couple of practice putts and then heading for the first tee (usually in a rush). 

An effective warm-up, one that really will help your game, needs a little time and needs to be performed in the correct sequence.

Health Warning

Please be careful when exercising and work within your physical limitations.  If in doubt consult a qualified sports medicine professional prior to exercising. If you experience pain or dizziness then stop immediately.
