The professional tour players allow at least 15 mins to have a good stretch using this golf stretching stick.
Originally developed by Randy Myers, Golf Stretching Pole can really help your golf by increasing your flexibility and perparing you before a round of golf and is a great golf warm up aid. The stick is lightweight and strong, fits in a golf bag and extends to six feet long. With its non slip rubber handle is ideal for a large range of golf stretching excerices.
Flexibility is perhaps the most important aspect in making a correct and full golf swing. Poor flexibility can be very detrimental to the development of a repeatable swing that utilizes the body’s full potential. If a golfer does not have the proper flexibility to complete the turn, they will often finish the swing with a bad sway to the right, a serious bend of the left arm, or by picking up their head. Added flexibility not only helps prevent injury but also helps the turning of the torso on the backswing. This is the key element of the swing that produces power: a full balanced turn of the upper body, coupled with a lower body that resists this turn. Young or old, beginner or expert, the stretching pole will help you keep your athletic edge.” – Hugh Reilly, PGA Life Member
