In this video PGA Pro Richard Lawless shows you how to complete a static stretch for the Hamstring Muscles

The hamstrings are tendons (strong bands of tissue) at the back of the thighs that attach the large thigh muscle to the bone.

The term ‘hamstring‘ also refers to the group of 3 muscles that run along the back of your thigh, from your hip to just below your knee.

Tight hamstring muscles can have a big impact on whether you can get the most out of your golf swing.

Muscle tightness is one of the biggest body issues for older golfers and those that are less subtle due to the modern lifestyles, sitting at desks or driving long hours for example.
