If you were to ask a number of amateur golfers what they think separates them from a PGA professional, you’d probably get similar answers: driving the ball far, consistent mechanics, swing speed, and shot shaping – among other things, What most people don’t realize, though, is that hip mobility is one key area that the top golfers in the world excel at that the rest of us don’t – and it’s low hanging fruit.

The golf swing requires a wide range of functional mobility, especially if you’re looking to execute a full and controlled swing with the power needed to drive the golf ball as far as you’re capable. The importance of spinal mobility in the golf swing is obvious – it’s what enables us to fluidly execute both a backswing and a follow-through – but hip mobility is too often overlooked by amateur golfers. We’re here to change that.
