Forearm and wrist strength is crucial in golf.  Without it, your swing would not carry the ball very far, and your grip on the club would be weak.

Good forearm and wrist strength is required:

  • For the ability to control the club swinging with greater speeds when hitting harder and further.
  • For enabling club control whilst playing from poor lies. I.e. Rough etc.
  • To control the swing plane and swing length 
  •  For club control for shot manufacturing 
  • To help prevent injuries. 

 

Here are some GolfBand exercises which will increase your forearm and wrist strength.

    Remember you can easily develop your strength with the GolfBand, just increase the tension in the GolfBand when you are ready to progress.

    During a golf swing one of your arms is pushing the club, while the other arm is pulling the club. Therefore, it’s vital to strengthen both sides of the forearm.
