Previous Next 2 of 11

Start off your golf stretches by first stretching your quadriceps, which are the muscles in the front of your thighs:

  • Stand with your back to a chair or bench and cross your arms over your chest. Place your left foot on the chair or bench (image 1). You can use a chair with a lower seat than the one shown here.
  • Keep your left knee even with or behind your right knee. Tighten your left buttock muscles. You'll feel a stretch in the front of your left thigh.
  • To mimic your backswing, rotate your shoulders and torso to the right and bend your left shoulder and trunk slightly toward the ground (image 2).
  • Repeat the stretch on the opposite side.
