VIDEO: PXG ambassador Claudine Foong is back with another quick warm-up tip

We last left Claudine Foong on the first hole at Trump International Golf Club, Dubai after Golf Digest Middle East’s fitness guru shared a series of last-minute warm-up tips, including a little Miguel Ángel Jiménez action.

Chances are you’ve had a few close calls to the first tee since (and will again) so here’s the second in our series of 11th-hour warm-up exercises from the PXG Middle East ambassador:

Stay tuned for more fitness tips from the Ontario-native, who played collegiate golf at Gardner Webb University in North Carolina and spent three seasons playing professionally – including on The Futures (now Symetra) Tour and in Canada and Florida – before devoting her career to wellness and performance coaching. Your game, and body, will thank you for it.
