“Nearly 1000 miles of distance has not stopped PGA Teaching Pro Chip Inks from continuing to improve my golf game. The usage of V1 Golf App software from my iPhone has allowed me to continue receiving the same high quality instruction that I was experiencing with Chip 3 years ago while working on the driving range in Columbus, Ohio. I enjoy being able to go back and listen to Chip’s instruction as many times as I need during the learning process, this wasn’t possible before using the V1 Golf App! I’ve knocked 12 strokes off my game since picking the clubs up this year. My first round was a shaky 83 riddled with misses. My last round was a smooth 71 filled with fairways and greens! 12 stroke improvement across 8 rounds of golf while working with Chip via the V1 Golf App from my iPhone. I always practice with a purpose; and now I practice with the V1 Golf App!” – Nathan R.
Golf Stretch for Shoulders:
Properly stretching your body before a round of golf can greatly improve your flexibility, prevent injuries and ultimately lead to better scores. However, most golfers tend to overlook proper and thorough stretching routines before and in-between rounds of golf. One of the most important areas a golfer should stretch are the shoulders.
The shoulder joint is a ball and socket joint that is similar to the hip, but with a lot less stabilization. In every other sport, the shoulder and rotator cuff is often prone to the most injury. The shoulder can move in all planes, which is necessary to make the golf swing – but with greater mobility comes greater chance for injury.
Tightness in the shoulders can make it very difficult to keep your left arm straight (if you are right-handed). It can hinder your takeaway and ultimately hinder every swing you make – from putting to driving to chipping.
I recommend never stretching cold – do some light exercise to loosen up the body and get the heart pumping (example: walk up and down the practice tee once or twice). Once you feel a little energized you can begin stretching.
Hold each stretch for 10 – 15 seconds and repeat a few times. Stretch at a slow pace, don’t jerk or bounce. It’s a good idea to stretch everyday along with before and after every round. Here is a simple shoulder stretch to help loosen the upper body.
Simple Shoulder Stretch:
- Take your golf stance and grab your left elbow with your right hand.
- Point your left thumb up, then rotate it clockwise so that your palm is facing away from your body.
- Now rotate your chest to your right, similar to a backswing.
- Apply some tension to you left elbow until you feel a stretch in your back
- Now switch arms and repeat with the other side – it’s important to stretch both ways.
