1. Shoulder External Rotation
Grab the club as shown and gently with the opposite arm pull the club forward which rotates your stretching arm outward. Hold stretch 2-3 seconds and do 5-10 reps to warm-up this motion prior to playing or hold 20-30 seconds and do 2-3 daily to improve mobility in your shoulders.
2. Cervical Rotation and Flexion
