A good golf game feels good, but it comes with preparation. Here are a few tips to make sure you stay at the top of your game!
Take Care of Your Body
Stretch Every Day
Specifically, Langer says to start by simply stretching every day. He says you can work with somebody to help you, but don’t use that as an excuse: Just Google a stretching routine and get started.
“Just stretch for a few minutes every day, either in the morning or evening,” he says. “You can do it at home, you can do it in the office.”
Strengthen Your Core
Don’t Cheat Your Turn
Langer mentioned turn there, which was another important theme of our conversation. Turning is power, Langer says, and you need power as you get older. If you can’t turn, you won’t just hit the ball shorter: You’ll also compensate in ways that will make you worse.
“A lot of people can’t turn even in their 50s and 60s. They may turn a little bit, but then they collapse their arms and think they’re way back there, when there’s no turn,” he said, demonstrating above. “That’s when trouble sets in. You get a lot of mishits.”
Making sure not to cheat your turn is the swing thought at the heart of this. Keep your arms straight, and turn your torso.
Improve Your Fundamentals
Last but not least are the fundamentals, Langer says. They’re called that for a reason, and they never go out of style. Keep a close eye on them every time you practice, and they’ll last a lifetime.
“Get a good foundation,” he says. “Grip, stance, good posture, all that stuff is very important.”
