The 3 Biggest Mistakes Golfers Make with FoamRolling

The complete foam rolling routine every active golfer can implement is available on demand via the Fundamental Routines.

The Fundamental Routines is not only a must have for every competitive golfer but also for the forward-thinking golf academy!

My effective strategy for foam rolling (a self-myofascial release technique that targets tense, weak or overworked areas and fascia due to overuse or repetitive stress from movements or prolonged periods of sitting) has massive potential to enhance your on-course performance, longevity, posture & breathing, and quality of recovery!

It’s something I do on a daily basis and have been integrating into my coaching programs to help my clients from all over the world, whatever their goals might be.

A recent published study in Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise concluded that Foam Rolling was beneficial in reducing muscle soreness while improving the passive and dynamic range of motion after an intense bout of physical activity (such as a golf training or lesson).

After 10 + years of working professionally as a golf strength & conditioning coach, I hate seeing smart golfers make these 3 devastating mistakes.

Below I have listed 3 very common mistakes I want you to avoid at all cost when foam rolling:

  1. Holding the breath

  2. Rolling through intense sharp pains

  3. Forgetting the glute medius

Foam rolling is a technique that almost every single PGA & LPGA Tour player uses to prepare their bodies to practice or play. Over time, we all develop restrictions in the connective tissue known as fascia that lies between the muscles and the skin. These restrictions can be the result of injury, disease, inflammation, inactivity or just simply the act of going through life. These restrictions can cause a loss of mobility, which in turn can lead to a myriad of swing issues.

The benefits that are induced primarily through neural responses and connective tissue will keep your body-game sharp as a tack!!

I hope you have everything you need for this final stretch of the off-season? What would you still need (or let go of) to kick off your first tournament feeling confident and playing brilliantly? Here to help, just holler via an instagram dm.
