Rotation through the thoracic/lumbar spine and hips is essential for optimal performance throughout the golf swing. This workshop looks at how the hips and vertebral structures move during rotation and how lack of movement can severely limit motion during the golf swing. This limitation in movement can lead to poorer performance and injury. For example, if an individual in unable to rotate effectively through the thoracic spine compensatory movements through the hip and pelvis can lead to low back issues.
This 8-hour, hands-on class takes place all day Saturday, 4/9. For complete information, visit www.amtactchapter.org/ct-conference.
