I always get asked by my Golfers which exercises they should do before they start hitting balls... So I thought I'd make a little video series! We'll build this up and have 7 exercises total that shouldn't take you more than 3 or 4 minutes.
Here's exercise number 7/7. The Power Twist. Now we're really getting in to our swing mechanics. Turn back to your right (if you are a lefty then to the left) pushing the floor apart with your feet grounded and coiling tension through core like a spring. Once you run out of twist, accelerate through to the left keeping the club horizontal. Allow your trail leg to pivot, allowing a full follow through from the hips. Maintain an upright spine throughout.
Our warmup is over, now you can grab a short iron and start with some half and three quarter shots to gain some feel.
I recommend working up through the clubs, skipping every other club (ie. 9,7,5,3,Driver).
For more detailed range drills, contact your local PGA teaching pro.

Heading out to the range soon? Don't swing a club until you warm up. Not only will you be less likely to pull or strain something, you'll swing more freely, more consistently and with more effortless power. Follow along with our Golf warmup playlist on your phone next time you take the clubs out.
