Skill Drills with Meredith Kirk: Pre-Round Stretching

In the inaugural installment of her “Skill Drills” instructional video series, Dustin Johnson Golf School lead instructor Meredith Kirk walks you through the paces of an effective pre-round stretching routine.

This drill is for pre-round stretching and the first thing that you want to do is you grab a club. You want to get into the address position. You want to have your feet about shoulder width apart. You’re going to hold the club out horizontally in front of you and what we're going to do is we're going to bend at the waist and get a really good stretching on our hamstrings. You're going to go down and hold for a few seconds and then come back up. We're going to do it again. Down, hold, really get into the stretch. If you want to bend a little bit more towards your feet just to pull a little bit more on the muscles, you can do that for a better stretch. You're going to come back up and you're going to continue to repeat that 6 more times. The goal is 8 reps.


After you're done with that, you're going to hold the club out again horizontally. Now we're going to do a little side turn. Get a little rotation going on in our shoulders. We're going to pull the club here to the right. I want you to feel, is with this lead arm right here, I want you to kind of get the club head use it as a resistance and we're going to stretch out our obliques. This feels so good. I do this exercise all the time before I go play golf. I absolutely love it. It's a great stretch. Hold it a few seconds. Then you're going to go to the other side. Sometimes I turn the club around because sometimes I like having that resistance of the head to help to stretch out that muscle because I can kind of pull back with my back hand.

It's a great stretch. You're going to come back again and you're going to repeat that 7 more times. Again, you want 8 reps for that. This is a great drill for your pre-round warm up to get your muscles nice and loosened up. A little bit more elastic and help with a better shoulder rotation.
