The Importance of Neck Mobility

From Dr. Greg Rose On December 01, 2021
Did you know that your neck is one of the most important parts of your body when it comes to the golf swing? Titleist staff member and TPI co-founder Dr. Greg Rose notes that limited range of motion in the... cervical spine is one of the most overlooked physical limitations he encounters, but it can have a profound impact on both your performance and your longevity in the game.

In this video, Greg demonstrates a simple way to test your own neck mobility. Standing tall and with your mouth closed, turn your head to the left and bend your head down from your neck. You should be able to touch your chin to the center of your collar bone. Repeat the same movement turning to the right. If you can touch your chin to your collar bone on both sides it means that you have sufficient mobility in your neck to rotate the 140 degrees that is required in a typical golf swing.

If you lack this range of motion, please consult your doctor, trainer or a TPI certified professional. They can design a program to increase your mobility and/or work around physical limitations you may have. By not asking more of your neck than it's physically capable of doing, you can avoid injury, play pain-free and build a swing that performs better for you day in and day out.
