Why It’s Important to Warm Up Before a Long Game of Golf

Before you step to the first tee, you have to be prepared to make your best swings right there from the beginning

For reaching peak performance, whatever sport we’re talking about, a proper warm-up is an absolute must. You can see athletes doing their pre-game warm-up routines on any sporting event, and it’s not different with pro golfers. Before you step to the first tee, you have to be prepared to make your best swings right there from the beginning. Here’s how a pre-game warm-up can improve your playing performance.
