Golf Stretches

Chest and Shoulder Stretch - hold a towel behind you. Straighten your arms and slowly lift the towel towards the ceiling, without leaning forwards. Keep your abs tight and your chest up. Hold for 30 seconds, then release.
Quad Stretch - stand on your Left foot and bring the Right foot up behind you. Grasp your Right foot with your Right hand, and point your knee directly at the floor/ground. Tilt your hip forward slightly to get a deeper stretch. Hold for 30 seconds, then do the other side.
Grasp a golf club/broom handle in both hands and bring it to rest on the back of your shoulders. Stand tall, then lean slightly to the left, keeping your body in alignment and your abs tight. You should feel the stretch down your right side. Hold the stretch for 30 seconds, then repeat on the other side.
Sit or stand with your abs tight. Bring your right arm across your chest (parallel to the ground). Put your left hand just above your elbow and hug your right arm towards you, stretching your shoulder blade area on the right side of your back. Hold and repeat on the other side.
Partner Hamstring Stretch - only do this with a qualified partner.
Sit on the floor with your right leg stretched out in front of you an your left foot on the outside of your right leg. Sit up tall and bring your right arm to rest on the outside of your left knee. Turn your body and feel the stretch along your spine. Hold and repeat on the other side.
Raise your elbows to the height of your shoulders and stand between a door frame. Slowly continue to walk through the door frame until a stretch is felt in the front. Hold and repeat three times.
