I've not practiced full swings at all during winter with lockdown and the cold weather stopping me going outside. But with some mild weather in England, I went out side and started to practice full swings in the garden. Very quickly I started to feel pain in left shoulder. 

Any tips on what I can do to get it used to swinging fast again or is it just a case of build back up slowly?

Did you have shoulder pain prior the lockdown and cold weather or did it just start happening?

I had an issue about 2 years ago when really trying to stripe the ball in practice but not had any issues since. With Uk restrictions for about 9 out of the last 12 months I've hardly swung at all, so guessing my golfing muscles have atrophied and need building up a little to with stand the forces of a full swing.

I had shoulder surgery last year and it wasn't until then that I realized the importance of stretching. I won't play or practice without doing a 5 minute stretching routine. Arm circles, hold the shaft in both hands palms-up and raise the shaft over your head, raise your hand above your head and then try to scratch the middle of your back (hold for 10 seconds and switch hands). Do 10 reps of these and it should help. If you experience a sharp pain when doing the stretches, go to a Dr.

Possibly a case of impingement syndrome. Which is Inflammation of the bursar sac.  More so backing off at this time using anti inflammatories icing and ROM. Acupuncture is successful for pain relief. Focus on ROM. Difficult to say without a full work up, but likely the increased repetitions of forceful swinging irritated your shoulder. Make sure you maintain your ROM and slowly buildup your mechanical swing. Start with wedges working towards the longer irons. I’m a physical therapist and see a fair amount of this. , hopefully just a minor flare up with no real rotator cuff or joint damage
