The hip flexor muscles must be flexible and strong if you want a stable, powerful golf swing. When they’re weak, compensation occurs, causing a number of swing limitations and injury.

Kneeling hip flexor stretch

This exercise helps to loosen up the hip flexor muscle so it can more easily do its job of stabilising and moving the hip complex.

Kneeling on your right knee, bend your left knee to 90° and lean forward until you feel a stretch in your right hip flexor muscle. Now bring your right arm overhead and lean over to the left. Hold this position for a few seconds and repeat on the other side.

Good hip mobility is key to an effective and powerful swing.
