Everyone and their mother has tight hips nowadays. Why? I’m not entirely sure. Maybe it could be from the sedentary lifestyle that has plagued this earth or just never stretching at all. What has caused this epidemic is not why I am writing this article - that is way out of my pay grade.  Let’s be honest most of the time people lie. They lie about how much money they make, what their handicap is, and certainly when people ask if they stretch. I have to remind them doing the ol’ toe touch and arm across chest stretch does not count. In order...

It is very clear the best way to improve your rotational power for the golf swing is by swinging a club. With that said the weight room can expedite the process greatly. One key piece of equipment that most gyms have is the med ball.  And no not for Russian twists.

Everyone is on their phones and computers with their upper back rounded and head forward. You are probably reading this and correcting yourself! Looks exactly like this: Posture has a HUGE impact on your golf swing. I can’t tell you how many golfers I see and tell me they have terrible mobility and feel so stiff during their swing.

Is this you? “It always takes 3-4 holes for my back to warm up.” “After 9 holes, my shoulder aches.” “My swing is so stiff!” I got you covered. We need to get you moving better. Below, I have a free 5 minute warm-up that will stop you from having any of those excuses above. All I ask is that give you it a try. The problem is that people think they need to watch a swing video on YouTube to fix their issue instead of improving their movement. Don't get me wrong, your swing most likely needs work like the...
