Previous Next 7 of 11 Golf stretches for your front hip muscles

Here's a final hip stretch:

  • Kneel on your right knee, holding your golf club with your right hand. Place your left foot in front of you, bending your knee. Place your left hand on your left leg for stability (image 1).
  • Keep your back straight and abdominal muscles tight. Lean forward, shifting more weight onto your left leg (image 2). You'll feel a stretch in the front of your right hip and thigh.
  • Repeat the stretch on the opposite side.
