Warm Up For More Distance
The main reason for warming up before you play if to get you ready to play to your maximum straight off the first tee, NOT 4 holes into your round
I was with one of my clients Allan this morning and this is how the conversation went:
Me; Morning Allan
Allan; Morning john
Me; right before we start just warm up
Allan; (After 2 swings) ok I’m ready
Me; What that’s it?
this is what happened after that
So Allan starts hitting some 7 iron shots (trackman data) club speed 59mph ball carry 100 yards
16 shots in we have a few more practice swings, he’s now swinging much freer
next 10 shots (trackman data) club speed 67mph ball carry 121
So once Allan had “warmed up” he increased speeds by 8mph and distance massively by 20 yards the problem is,
had he have been playing that would have been at least 3 holes in if not more
So does Allan see the benefit of a warm up, indeed he does..
Do you warm up before you play? if not why not?
dynamic warm has proven to be much better at getting the body “ready” than just static stretches
try this warm up before you next play and add distance to your game,
let me know how you get on
Enjoy your golf, see you soon
