At Sandpiper Baby Golf & Country Club we get some tips on warming up before a round of golf.  Head Professional, Brett Thomaswick talks with us out on the driving range about the advantages of loosing up before hitting the first tee.

Brett recommends stretching.  It is very important to take a few minutes to get the body warmed up and loosened even before taking the first swing with any club.  It does not take a whole lot of effort.  He is not recommending breaking into a full sweat with a total stretching and workout routine.  He is merely encouraging golfers to take a few minutes to do some routine stretching.  Stretching the back muscles along with the major body muscles used in the golf swing.

Brett also recommends taking wedges and short irons to the range to warm up.  Everyone wants to take the driver to the range and get the testosterone flowing early.  The problem with that is, that more shots are taken with the shorter irons or “scoring irons” that with the driver.  In the average round of golf the driver is only used about 9 or 10 times.  Why hit 3 times that many balls on the range?  Warm up and practice smarter for better scores.
