Emphasising the importance of the scapula muscles and posture during the golf swing!

Protracting or ’rounding forward’ of the shoulders for any golfer is not only detrimental to their technique and performance but it can predispose to shoulder joint issues such as rotator cuff impingement or pectorals major impingement.

Work on drawing the shoulders back and opening the chest, repeat this movement as part of a warm up if you’re a golfer.

Focus on keeping the back straight and the chest up to prevent tight chest muscles and weak back muscles!

1.Rounding of the shoulders (bad posture)

2. Drawing the shoulder up and back thus opening the chest
