How to Fix Your Golf Swing

October 2, 2009


Most likely, it’s your hamstrings and your low back.

We are going to explore the connection between your hammies, your low back and that less than PGA pro, Golf Magazine type golf swing.

Let’s start with your hamstrings. The function of the hamstrings in your body is pretty complex.

First off, your hamstrings help stabilize your hip area.. Also your hamstrings bend your knee The low back is essentially a group of small muscles. All these little muscles together comprise the lower back region of the body. The lower back muscles have a lot of functions. To start off, the lower back muscles help stabilize your spine at all times, especially during movement. And now, onto the golf swing.

The golf swing is essentially a total body movement that requires the body to move through multiple planes of motion. The connection is that hamstrings and the low back are working extremely hard during the golf swing, and quite often either one or the other (low back or hamstrings or even both) gets “tight.” Both the low back and hamstrings become “tight” from swinging a club. When you are actively using both of these muscle groups in the golf swing, these muscles get “tired”. Your swing looks stiff and choppy.

The golf swing requires your body to move through a pretty complex range of motion. This large range of motion allows the golfer to swing the club on the correct path, create club head speed, and swing the club with the correct timing. It provides the golfer with the correct golf swing, ultimately

I would suggest the implementation of a golf-specific training program that assists in getting the body ready to swing a golf club. This results in reduced club head speed and less likelihood of swinging the club on the correct swing plane or with the correct timing. In these muscle groups for the golf swing, this type of program focuses on developing the proper ranges of motion
