Injury Will Prevent The Fluid Golf Swing

You can’t do a thing if you’ve not got that swing. Sounds like words from an old song, but believe me having treated quite a few Golfers these are words I hear quite a lot,when that injury occurs,  you won’t have that Swing.

Lets face it folks when it comes to Golf it is all about the swing, and the follow through and if you can’t do that then you are not playing Golf, at least not how you should be. to develop a good fluid swing being physically relaxed, more supple makes a better functional swing, from the back swing to the follow through .Speed comes from the more relaxed posture.

First of all you need to get the basics right it makes a fundamental difference, did you know that a move, that is wrong in the first place will always be wrong. When you learn to play your muscles adjust accordingly so if you have been taught the positions right it will follow that your body will adapt accordingly. the same applies if you learn the wrong move’s  from bad positioning . those same muscles movements will be repeated again and again, breaking a bad habits in position is harder to do than you would think so start right, then improve.

You have to Set up right, to do this you must ,  to be able to develop a solid swing technique to do this you must  be able to move your body freely and for your body to move as freely as possible.

Try a warm up before you play ! Roll your neck but be careful not to go too far back. Shrug your shoulders rolling them forwards then backwards. Bear hug yourself. Roll your trunk around your hips. Stretch one arm up above your head and bend your elbow, then pull your elbow down with your other hand. Rock up and down on your toes; raise both hands above your head and lean from side to side. Take a step forward, lean back on your rear foot, and lift the toes of your forward foot off the ground. Roll your ankles keeping your toes on the ground.

Poor flexibility is a key risk factor for a golf injury

You need to be able to  Push your hips back, angle your spine toward the ball and  flex your knees, if you have good posture it helps with balance and stability.
