Golf fitness coach Mindi Boysen demonstrates a great hamstring stretch exercise for golfers.
The hamstring is an area on the back of the thigh directly above the back of the knee. A pulled or strained hamstring is a fairly common injury, usually characterized by sharp pain, and often followed by swelling and bruising. If you experience a hamstring injury while on the golf course, rest the muscle as soon as possible. Elevate the muscle and ice it, as needed, to reduce the swelling.
