In my mind I am thinking, Why do the golf Gods do this to me? I believe I am a lovely person, full of life, committed to being of service to my fellow man and animals and yet the golf Gods continue to play with my head! Cant they cut me a break and take away the hook?
Okay, okay..back to golf fitness.
I know many of you have felt this same frustration as well as elation when you hit it long and straight off the tee. The point here is that because I have the physical mobility, strength and body awareness, I was able to make the revisions necessary out on the course to alleviate the hook (or at least minimize the hook) out on the course.
The combination of strength and flexibility are necessary to make these changes.
Over the past three weeks my articles focused on strength generation so I decided this week to put in a flexibility exercise.
Last week we incorporated the Single Leg Dead lift. This week we add a stretching exercise for the hips, specifically the psoas, quads, and intercostals.
Lets get started!

Begin with your left leg forward, knee at a ninety degree angle and your right knee is on the floor. Note: Slide your right leg back so you are not directly on the knee. If necessary place a towel under your right knee for more comfort.
