Golf season is underway!

Here are some tips for Tee Time to help prevent injury:

  1. Arrive 30 mins early to do warm-up exercises.
  2. Place your club behind your back and carefully rotate your trunk for several minutes to warm up your body.
  3. Increase your golf swing gradually from short irons to longer irons to your driver. Ease yourself into the fuller swings. A high degree of spinal rotation with out a gradual warm-up can lead to low back injuries.
  4. Pay attention to your set-up posture:
    • Bend your knees slightly into a relaxed position
    • Bend forward from the hips, keeping your back straight
    • Arms should hang straight down comfortably while gripping the club
  5. Keep hydrated!! Dehydration leads to fatigue which increases risk of injury
