If you're a golfer, you're constantly being barraged with ways to improve your game. Between TV, magazines, and the Internet, there is no shortage of pricey enticements to add yards to your drive, laser-focus your accuracy, and shoot lower scores.
But the fact is, the club does not swing itself. And you're only going to swing the club and hit the ball as well as your body will allow you to swing the club and hit the ball. It's as simple as that. Optimizing your body to swing the golf club is the only guaranteed way to improve the way you play.
Optimize Your Body, Optimize Your Swing
Will those new ray-blocking sunglasses help you swing the club better? No, but the reduced glare might let you see exactly where your ball hooked into the woods.
Will that new rangefinder help you swing the club better? Again, no. But at least now you'll know -- to the inch -- how weak your iron game is from the fairway.
Will new clubs help you swing the club better? Possibly. Spending money on a club that's been professionally fitted for you with the proper shaft stiffness based on your current swing speed and tempo can improve your play. Spending money randomly on the most expensive driver out there, though, probably won't. That brand-new $700 driver won't swing itself -- and if your body isn't optimized to swing that club, you're probably not going to see much improvement out on the course.
Again, the ONLY guaranteed way to improve your golf game is to improve and optimize the way you swing the club. That's our primary goal at Hit IT Great -- to help you optimize your body for the game of golf. And you can do it all without leaving your house.

3 Go-To Golf Moves to Get You Moving
Need more convincing? For a quick taste of what Hit IT Great is all about, check out these go-to moves that you can try doing two or three times per week. They'll not only prep your body to prevent injuries and increase your distance and accuracy, but these three movements will also help you feel a whole lot better if you've been stuck at your desk all day and about to start your fifth Zoom meeting!
1. Modified Windshield Wipers
You've probably heard or read about "X-Factor." It's the amount of separation you can get between your upper body and your lower body. The greater you can separate the two, the deeper your takeaway and follow-through can be. This will allow you to develop more clubhead speed at impact and allow you to comfortably finish your golf swing in a controlled and balanced way.
Lie on the ground with your knees bent and your heels on the ground. Place your arms out to the side to help stabilize you throughout the movement. This is the starting position.
Keeping your legs pressed against each other, slowly drop your legs to the left. Your right shoulder is going to want to come up off the floor a little. Keeping your upper body as stable and quiet as possible and your legs still pressed against each other, return to the starting position and then drop your legs to the right. You might find it easier to drop the legs in one direction than in the other, but this is natural. Eventually, as core strength and spinal and hip mobility increase, you'll find those range-of-motion differences lessening. Do 15 drops on each side.
On the course, a rounded back -- or C-shaped posture -- will wreak havoc on your accuracy. Try this yoga-inspired Cat-Cow movement to loosen up your back and allow you to maintain a proper spine angle throughout your swing.
Assume an all-fours position with your hands aligned directly under your shoulders and your knees directly under your hips. Keeping your arms straight and your hands and knees in solid contact with the floor, slowly raise your back as if you were trying to touch it to the ceiling. This rounded back position is the "cat" part of the equation. Hold this position for two-seconds and then reverse the move and try to touch your stomach to the floor. This arched back position is the "cow" part. Hold this position for two-seconds and then raise your back up into the cat position. Do 15 cats and 15 cows.
3. Air Squat
To create the lower body strength that's going to let you drive the ball longer and farther, you need to develop your quadriceps (on the front of your thigh) and your glutes. And these no-equipment air squats are great for building strength and adding distance to your game.
Stand with feet shoulder width apart with your arms down by your sides. Slowly, drop your hips down and back as if you were sitting into a chair. Your knees should stay aligned over your heels. Try not to let your knees float forward over your toes. To help with your balance, raise your arms up in front of you as you lower yourself. Try to drop your hips so that your knees are at ninety-degree angles and your thighs are parallel to the floor. It might not happen on Day One, but keeping working on it. Hold this "seated" position for a two-count and then drive through your heels to come back to the starting position. Do two sets of ten air squats.
