Modified Yoga for Golfers-Standing Poses

Posted on CardioGolf Online Golf and Fitness Studio by Karen Palacios-Jansen

A few great things about this routine:

1. Swing drills and practice swings can help reinforce sound golf swing fundamentals and mechanics.

2. Doing swing drills and making practice swings can get you into positions that you may not otherwise be able to get into when you swing at full speed.

3. Making practice swings instead of hitting balls is a better way to improve your swing technique.

So, if you are trying to learn the swing, or make a swing change, rehearsing the move without hitting a ball will assure that you are actually doing the correct move – and repeating the motion that you want to achieve will help ingrain the move into your real swing.
