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 2/7. The standing lateral leg swing. Use a club to balance and swing your leg through side to side being sure to stay well balanced on your standing leg, braced through your core and the iron your holding on to. Perform 10 swings on each leg.
We're waking up the leg and core muscles here so that we can create a stable strong platform from which to swing.
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.
