I am 36 years old, and my body is not as fit as it used to. When I was younger I could perfectly jump from the car straight to the first tee.
Now, my golf warm-up routine goes like this: some active stretching in the carpark and a bucket of balls at the driving range 15-20 minutes. This sounds like a lot, but that is the minimum my body and 'game' requires to match my average golf skills on the first tee.
Due to recent restrictions, some golf clubs have decided to limit the number of bays or close their driving ranges momentarily.
I would like to know with or without driving range, what is your warm-up routine before you tee off?

One warmup drill my chiropractor suggested has me taking swings warming up both right handed and lefty. Helps stretch both sides of my hips. And activates my glutes!!

I try to at least swing my SKLZ Gold swing trainer for 5 minutes. If I have time for the range I will hit 3 balls with every club, then head to the chipping area. Last i go to the putting green. I always try to chip if I can't do anything else before a round. Madgolfer hitemstraight

Hi Diego, before you stretch, I recommend a brisk walk to get the blood flowing. It will make your stretches more effective. If you are not currently, I recommend getting some exercise and doing stretching every day. This will help you stay more limber on golf days. I am 61 and carry 18 on a regular basis.
