In Michael Breeds golf tip he refers to the importance of maintaining deep knee flexion while hitting a bunker shot when the ball is below your feet. Although there are many physical components necessary for this type of shot, including strong hands, wrist and forearms to blast the ball out of the sand, the lower body (our focus this week) contributes to your physical ability to execute this golf shot.
This weeks fitness tip targets:
- Hamstring flexibility
- Hip (adductor and abductor) flexibility
In addition you should focus on quad strength and balance.
