Stretch and keep playing!

3 posts in this topic


Have you heard the term “stretch and keep playing”? These words hold true no matter how old or how young of a golfer you are. It’s never too early or too late to start a regimented routine of stretching. The short amount of time you will spend doing simple movements with Golflexx will lengthen the small and large muscle groups used in the golf swing, get the blood circulating to help prevent injury and help you enjoy the game of golf long into your later years of life.

One of the more important areas of the body needing to be warmed up prior to swinging a club is the ribcage and the surrounding muscle groups. This area is one that seemingly gets overlooked by golfers. The action of switching from the top of your backswing into the downward movement of your follow through puts an undue amount of stress on your ribcage. Rib injuries can occur due to a variety of other motions particular to different sports including golf. Stretching that part of your upper body is essential before any taking a club into your backswing, then into your full front swing.

By using Golflexx and following our simple routine, Dr. Fox describes in exercise number 2 how to rotate your core properly  which will warm the long ligaments and muscle groups between the ribs known as the intercostal muscle group.

Our patented approach to pre-loading your Golflexx, something that can’t be done with any of your clubs, will allow the major muscles used in your golf swing to properly circulate the blood necessary for a proper stretch, preventing injury.

After using Golflexx for the first time you will never leave your home without it in your bag. If you find that hard to believe just go to our website and see for yourself, people just like you have posted testimonials and continue to do so.

Take advantage of our March Madness by purchasing your Golflexx and getting a second Golflexx at half price with FREE shipping. Visit us on the web at www.golflexx.com for details.

In between the bouts of shoveling and snowboarding I have been incorporating the Golfflexx almost daily.  So far so good.  My shoveling form is top notch ;)  Hopefully whenever spring comes I will be able to report back properly.

    • What is the real difference between Titleist Prov1 and Prov1x Balls
      By Dreid65 · Posted
      Here is what I think I know...the ProV1X spins a little more of the irons, and spins a little less of the driver,  versus a prov1,.  ProV1x is a 4 piece urethane cover ball, prov1 is a 3 piece ball.  For me...with a slower swing speed (mine is 100-103, and I am a 2 handicap), when I miss the driver, meaning it is a little more of a "glancing" blow to the ball, a prov1x spins way more, and negatively impacts distance.   I really like the ProV1, It spins a little less for me in all the places i want less spin, but has a very nice soft feel around the greens and plenty of spin on short shots.   M new favorite ball is the Bridgestone B330.  It feels like it spins less through the bag...less on my driver, less on my irons, less on my wedges, but still has that softish feel of a urethane covered ball, (still feels firmer than a prov1). I also like the Srixon Ball...the Z star and Z star XV.  To me, those perform very similar to a ProV and V1x respetively, and are outstanding scoring balls.  Now, for the bit that I can't prove, but is my feeling...Even though the ProV1x is a great ball, I feel that when I am a little off with the driver...striking it a little off center, and a little off "square", x's, for me, are the poorest performers, because they spin so darn good when struck with a glancing blow (ie, like a wedge is a glancing blow).  I know everyone says they spin less off the driver, but what they mean is, they spin less off a well struck driver...they spin more with all other shots....Not sure I am explaining it well, but for my money my ball of choice between the 2 is always the ProV1, mostly because when i hit it well, I cant tell the difference, but when I miss it a little, the v1 is just straighter and longer, for me..

      None in particular;  there's a Panera and a Corky's (I've never been to a Corky's, so I don't know how it is) not too far from the course.  If someone knows the area and can suggest some place, I have no attachment to my suggestions (I just saw them on Google Maps is all).

      This Boatright is obviously not related to P J Boatwright, one of the most revered Rules officials.

    • My Swing (saevel25)
      By saevel25 · Posted
      Refresh what I need to do. Some comparisons between those last two drives and the rest of the round. 

      Good Drives I did the following
      I got into a good set up and grip. I made sure I wasn't on my heels. I shortened the swing, swing felt more in control and compact. 

      Bad Drives
      These drives just felt very fast and out of control. Backswing felt fast. Downswing felt super fast. I was hitting either low on the clubface or low and heel on the clubface. One I almost topped the ball with the heel. 

      -I am just hitting the heel of the putter a ton. I also apparently can't aim my putter. I keep aiming way right. I just don't feel comfortable making a stroke right now. The putter just feels horrible in my hands right now. 

      I plan on practicing from now on. I haven't really hit the range in a few months.
