Thoracic spine mobility is very important in Golf. The more rotation you have, the more power you will be able to extract from your swing. A golfer with a stiff thoracic spine will overcompensate by using their lower back, which can lead to golf injuries.
A great exercise that will help to achieve Thoracic spine rotation is demonstrated here. This is also a great exercise for students and office workers who don’t move into thoracic rotation enough on a regular basis.
Place yourself in 4 points kneel, core activated and shoulder blades are drawn down and toward the spine. Place the back of one hand on your forehead.
Take a deep breath in and as you exhale, rotate your elbow towards the ceiling ensuring that you rotate the trunk as far around as you can.
As you breathe in, return past the starting position. Repeat 5-6 times each side.
