How To Warm Up Properly Before a Round of Golf | Ryan Benzel

Ryan Benzel - PGA Teaching Professional

PGA Teaching Professional Ryan Benzel of Pro Golf in Lynnwood Washington provides some helpful guidance on how best to warm up and practice before hitting the course for a round of golf.

Start with a short iron, don't go straight to your diver and start bombing the ball. To properly warm up, you want to get your body and swing stretched out and into a groove. Over swinging on a driver with a stiff body will cause more harm than good.

Progress down your set from a wedge and short pitching, to an 8-iron and approach shots. Eventually move on to a 6-iron, 4-iron, hybrid, 3-wood, then finally your driver. This method will warm you up properly, get your swing into a groove, and improve your practice efficiency during training or before a round of golf.
