This summer when you head to your favorite golf course, if your feet aren’t up to par, your score probably won’t be either. Here are some reasons why you should make sure your feet are in shape before you approach the tee.
Many golfers don’t realize that foot pain can be an obstacle to the perfect golf swing. As your body transfers weight from one foot to the other during your swing, the nerves in the ball of your foot may become compressed or irritated, causing pain.
Another source for pain may be from your big toe joint. When you follow through on your golf swing, the big toe joint on the back foot may bend too far, eventually wearing out the cartilage or jamming the joint. e wear and tear can lead to painful arthritis.
Heel pain can also make it uncomfortable for you to keep a solid stance during critical parts of your swing, or to simply be on your feet all day as you walk the course.
