Essential Golf Warm-Up Drills: Before You Tee Off

By Dr. T. J. Tomasi, Keiser University College of Golf Senior Faculty and Director of Research

What are the best drills for warming up before you go to the first tee? Here are the two I always suggest to my students – pro or amateur:

Switch From Baseball to Golf Warm Up – As You Swing

Stand upright and make a few practice swings as though you were hitting a chest-high pitch in baseball. While keeping the motion continuous, slowly incline your spine toward your normal golf swing position until you’re clipping the grass. The club is your choice – Repeat five times. As a variation, stop in the impact zone and check your clubface to make sure you are ready for a proper strike at impact.

Superman Stretch

Stand with both arms stretched out in front of you. Reach under your left arm and curl your right wrist behind your left elbow. Keeping this relationship, place your right palm on the right side of your face. Now, with your left arm straight, bend from your hip joints into your golf posture, just as if you were about to make a swing. Make a slow-motion backswing, swinging an imaginary club to the top of your swing. Hold for 30 seconds, then reverse and do the other side. Do five on each side.
