How to improve your thoracic mobility
Tip with André Loots (EOGA Arabella)

This exercise will help maintain the posture in the backswing which in turn helps with more consistent strikes.

1. On all fours, hold your head with your left hand.
2. Rotate your head towards your opposite knee.
3. Then open up the chest while looking at your elbow. Do 2 sets of 10 reps
4. Repeat on the other side.

 

Remember that EOGA is online!

Blowing away another myth

 
It’s quicker than you think.
 
Thinking about your golf game, where would an improvement make the most difference? Not just to your scorecard or your handicap, but to how much you enjoy the game. If you are struggling with enjoyment, then there’s a good chance it’s one of these skills:
 
 
Too many shots in the rough, lost in the woods, or far too short. Hole spoiled before you start.
 
 
Can’t get the ball up on good trajectory. Too inconsistent. It’s a struggle tee to green.
 
Too many golfers sit in one or both these categories. They’re under 100 sometimes but often struggle with that target. If that’s you I’m betting you love your friends, and the outdoors, but the game itself is frustrating. So let’s blow a myth away.
 
 
It might take 10,000 hours to be an elite level golfer, but what if it took less than 20 hours of practice to MASTER one skill?
 
I’m interested, tell me more
The key to mastering a skill is not bashing away endlessly with minimal or no improvement. The right improvement identified and explained. Simple steps. The right deliberate practice drills. The right feedback. Pick a skill. Start a conversation with us. Now’s a good time.

Keep moving

 
Strengthen your foundation
 
Being home doesn’t mean you can’t work on your golf game. Your physical conditioning is just as important as technique and course management. Improving your mobility from home means that when you’re back on the course, you can hit the ground running.
 
 
A good golf swing starts at your ankles. Being able to stay in position while transferring weight from your back foot to your front foot during the downswing requires ankle mobility. Lacking ankle mobility leads to early extension and inconsistent ball striking.
 
 
This exercise will help you improve your ankle mobility. And all you’ll need to do it is a few square feet of space.
