Improving your golf isn’t just about engraining good technique, though it helps! Good healthy habits, like stretching, are also guaranteed to have a positive effect on your golf and general wellbeing.

We all live busy lives so it’s important to set aside a YOU appointment. What you do in this time is up to you, but if you want to improve your golf, I’d go for a good stretch or meditation. If you are extremely disciplined, incorporate a morning ritual - a green tea and a salute to the sun as shown below.

From a standing position, stretch your arms above your head and let them almost give a wide wave to the day as you smoothly sweep your hands down to your feet.

Place your hands on the ground and step one foot back. Look up through the stretch and you’ll feel your hip flexors easing out. Then take your other foot back and form a plank. Hold for as long as you can for a mini core workout.

Drop your knees to the floor and sit back on your heels. Stretch your arms forward and lengthen through your spine. Slide through into a Cobra pose (B). Open up your chest before standing on your hands and feet to create the triangle that is a downward dog (C).

Step the opposite foot between your hands and then the other. Hug your head into your shins and enjoy a full-on stretch before taking another salute. Finish with palms together in front of your heart. I’d begin with two salutes and then build up. It will help you to feel energised and ready to take on the day.
