Warm Up With These Easy Leg Stretches

It's Saturday and many of you are out there enjoying the day and playing the game we all love. I am going to guess that most of you who read this blog actually do "warm up" or "stretch" before you step up to the first tee. If you don't take the time to warm up or stretch before teeing it up, YOU SHOULD!

You will be amazed at how much calmer you will be and how much easier you will swing your club when you do some concentrated, stretches about 10 minutes before your tee time or before you hit some practice balls on the range. I can't tell you how many times I've heard golfers say, "It usually takes me three or four holes to warm up". What a waste of three or four holes.

The first tee is generally the most nerve racking for those of us who can only get out on the weekend. Here are two short, but effective stretches that will definitely help release the tightness in your legs. Hold each posture for the count of ten to get the most benefit. Perform these stretches on both legs.

See how easy that was?

Keep it in the short grass.
