Every part of your body is important in the golf swing, but the hips are a major factor in generating power in your golf swing. The hip joints and surrounding muscles need to rotate in the golf swing. Where many people go wrong is that they slide their hips or stand up as they swing, mostly because we spend the day sitting and our hips are generally tighter than other muscles and joints causing these compensations.
Creating mobility in the hips will help you turn more efficiently and generate more power. Try this hip mobility exercise can be done as a warm up before play or practice. This may seem like simple exercise but it will help you increase the range of motion in your hips, challenge your balance and even help you strengthen the supporting leg. This exercise is a staple in my Cardiogolf Pre-Round Warm Up Routine.
