Naples, Florida, is not only one of the best retirement destinations, but it is also a haven for golfers. It’s the perfect time of the year to enjoy hours of golfing, more time practicing and taking on a challenging course.

Exercise Tips to Assist in Improving Your Golf Game 

Golfing is a great way to stay active. Exercising and stretching improve your flexibility and strength, and it may help you improve your game, especially when you're making that initial drive and those long fairway drives. 

  • Strengthen your ankles with the "windshield wiper exercise."
  • A proper quad stretch is good for balance, flexibility, and strength.
  • Stretch  your lower back and hips for better mobility.
  • Loosen your back muscles, protect your wrists, and more. 
  • Get your entire body ready by "lightly swinging" your golf club.

The golf swing is a vital part of playing the game. If you're not able to control the direction of your ball from the tee most of the time, it's a sign that you could benefit from skilled instruction. Even people who have been playing golf for years find it beneficial to take lessons from time to time. Professional golfing instructors can also help you with exercises that will help you improve your game.

Even with the best golf training aids and instructions, you need to know how to practice effectively. It takes a plan to get the most out of every lesson and practice.
