Then try this hip and back stretch:

  • Sit on a chair, low table or tee bench. Place your right ankle on top of your left thigh. Raise your right knee and grasp it with your left hand (image 1).
  • Keeping your spine straight, pull your right knee up toward your left shoulder. You'll feel a stretch in your right buttock.
  • Mimic the position of your right hip when you're at the top of your backswing by turning your shoulders to the right (image 2).
  • Repeat the stretch on the opposite side.
