Golf fitness exercises to improve the hip turn #pgatour
In order to understand what muscles require strength and what joints require mobility to execute an efficient golf swing we can turn our attention to the Mobility/Stability Pattern of Human Movement. This principle states in order to create efficient movement or athletic actions, the body must operate in an alternating pattern of mobile joints and stable body segments. If this pattern of mobile joints and stable body segments is altered, dysfunction in movement patterns or athletic actions will occur. Relative to the golf swing this principle indicates the ability to execute each phase of the golf swing, generate speed, and transfer this speed to the golf club will be impeded if dysfunction exists within the mobility/stability pattern of human movement.
