Gergley, JC. Latent effect of passive static stretching on driver clubhead speed, distance, accuracy, and consistent ball contact in young male competitive golfers. J Strength Cond Res 24(12): 3326-3333, 2010-This investigation was conducted to determine the effect of 2 different warm-up treatments over time on driver clubhead speed, distance, accuracy, and consistent ball contact in young male competitive golfers. Two supervised warm-up treatments, an active dynamic warm-up with golf clubs (AD…

Acute Effect of Passive Static Stretching on Lower-Body Strength in Moderately Trained Men

TLDR
The findings of this study suggest that intensive stretching such as lower-body PSS should be avoided before training the lower body or performing the 1RM in the squat exercise in favor of an AD dynamic warm-up using resistance training equipment in the lower- body musculature.

Acute and persistence of the effects of the SuperSpeed Golf™ weighted-club warm-up on golf driving performance and kinematics

High-level golfers use various warm-up strategies to enhance clubhead and ball speed, including weighted equipment. We investigated the acute effects of the SuperSpeed Golf™ weighted-club warm-up on

THE IMPACT OF WARM-UP ON YOUTH GOLFER CLUBHEAD SPEED AND SELF-REPORTED SHOT QUALITY.

TLDR
A combined dynamic physical warm-up and clubwarm-up improves clubhead speed and self-reported shot quality in youth golfers, however, a club warm- up alone does not seem to be sufficient in eliciting these same improvements.

The effects of different types of warm-up exercises on golf performance

Background and objective: Most studies of golf warm-up exercises have focused on the differences between static and dynamic stretching, while relatively few have compared them to post-activation

The impact of physical preparation on clubhead speed in youth golf

Over recent years, the emphasis placed on the physical preparation of golfers has drastically increased. Players now hit the ball farther, courses have become longer, and the relationships between

A Systematic Review of Golf Warm-ups: Behaviors, Injury, and Performance.

TLDR
A systematic review of golf warm-ups suggests that various warm-up protocols (with the exception of static stretching) may enhance golf performance, but observational data suggest many golfers do not regularly perform them.

Musculoskeletal Considerations for the Senior Golfer

TLDR
Age-related musculoskeletal age-related changes associated with a general decrease in strength, flexibility/range of motion, balance, and coordination may affect the golfing ability of a senior golfer.

Acute Effects of Passive Static Stretching During Warm-up on Driver Clubhead Speed, Distance, Accuracy, and Consistent Ball Contact in Young Male Competitive Golfers

TLDR
The results of this inquiry strongly suggest that a total-body passive static stretching routine should be avoided before practice or competition in favor of a gradual, active dynamic with golf clubs.

THE EFFECT OF DIFFERENT WARM‐UP STRETCH PROTOCOLS ON 20 METER SPRINT PERFORMANCE IN TRAINED RUGBY UNION PLAYERS

TLDR
It was concluded that static stretching as part of a warm-up may decrease short sprint performance, whereas active dynamic stretching seems to increase 20-m sprint performance.

An acute bout of static stretching: effects on force and jumping performance.

TLDR
The parallel duration of changes in ROM and quadriceps isometric force might suggest an association between stretch-induced changes in muscle compliance and isometricforce output.

Static Stretching Impairs Sprint Performance in Collegiate Track and Field Athletes

TLDR
The results of this study suggest that performing a SS protocol following a DW will inhibit sprint performance in collegiate athletes.

EFFECTS OF PHYSICAL CONDITIONING ON INTERCOLLEGIATE GOLFER PERFORMANCE

TLDR
Eleven weeks of golf-specific physical conditioning increased clubhead speed without a negative effect on consistency or putting distance control in intercollegiate men and women golfers.

The effects of static and ballistic stretching on delayed onset muscle soreness and creatine kinase.

TLDR
Interestingly, a group effect (p < .05) demonstrated that DOMS was significantly greater for STATIC than for BALLISTIC, and static stretching induced significantly more DOMS than did ballistic.

ACUTE EFFECTS OF STATIC STRETCHING ON MAXIMAL ECCENTRIC TORQUE PRODUCTION IN WOMEN

TLDR
Results indicated that static stretching did not affect PT or the joint angle at PT of the leg extensors during maximal, voluntary, eccentric isokinetic muscle actions at 60 and 1808·s−1 in the stretched or unstretched limbs in women, and suggested thatstatic stretching may affect torque production during concentric, but not eccentric, muscle actions.

Acute Effects of Static Stretching, Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation Stretching, and Maximum Voluntary Contractions on Explosive Force Production and Jumping Performance

TLDR
Stretching is generally effective for inducing acute and chronic changes in ROM, but its effects on MTEN stiffness and the optimum stiffness for physical performance are not so clear.

Effect of Warm‐Up and Flexibility Treatments on Vertical Jump Performance

TLDR
Performing PNF before a vertical jump test would be detrimental to performance, and a post hoc analysis revealed decreased vertical jump performances for the PNF treatment group.

Acute Effects of Stretching Are Not Evident in the Kinematics of the Vertical Jump

TLDR
Stretching prior to stretch-shortening cycle activities like the vertical jump results in small decreases in performance in some subjects, but the nonsignificant biomechanical changes suggest that neuromuscular inhibition may be the mechanism rather than changes in muscle stiffness.
