I don’t need to tell you that having more flexible hips will allow you to make a better turn back and through the ball.
In fact we have pointed this out in our posts of exercise to add some clubhead speed
and our post on the glutes in the golf swing
that the hips are a major source of power in the golf swing.
The guys over at GolfTec
have measured 100’s of swings and in this graph we created we show you that the average pro opens their hips up at impact by over 36 degrees vs an average golfer of 24 degrees.
One of the things you see of great ball strikers is this ability to rotate their hips open to the target to the point you can see both the right and left glutes when viewed from down the line.
The 2000 Tiger did it.
Even the big hitters like DJ, Rory, and Bubba Watson do it. (Along with their higher hands and great shoulder flexibility
As a side note, I am not the most flexible golfer out there but I continue to work on it.
So as we get into some of the more advanced stretches, I will give you some scales for those.
So without further ado, let’s get started.
