Previous Next 4 of 11 Golf stretches for your hamstrings

Now move on to your hamstrings, which are the muscles in the back of your thighs:

  • Hold your golf club behind your shoulders. Stand next to a step, low table or tee bench. Put your right foot on the step and bend your right knee slightly (image 1).
  • Bend your upper body forward at your hips, keeping your spine straight until you feel a comfortable stretch in the back of your right thigh.
  • Maintain this stretch while rotating your back and shoulders to the left and to the right (image 2).
  • Repeat the stretch on the opposite side.
