Proper golf warm up is critical to performance on the course. Injuries happen all the time. Using the MISIG or “Most Important Stretch In Golf’ as a pre round warm up tool can be critical to avoiding time away from the wonderful sport of golf due to injuries.
There are 72 PGA professionals using the MISIG for a good reason; It’s the perfect way to stretch the shoulders back and hips.
Quote From Dr. Ben Langdown – Titleist Performance Institute:
“In other sports people warm their bodies up in preparation for the activity ahead without even thinking about it or questioning why they are doing so. What the majority of golfers seem to forget is that golf is similar to sprinting in that it is a very explosive action which culminates in a lot of force traveling through the body over a very short period of time.”
“Yet despite the similarities you wouldn’t see a sprinter stroll out to the track and try to compete, without performing an appropriate warm-up routine. However, in golf we know that there is a stigma attached to warming up or stretching properly on the range or prior to teeing off. It is time to change the embarrassed culture that exists in our sport when it comes to warming up prior to performance.”.
