Thanks so much, you guys are GREAT! I played today and felt that "thing"...the coil...when you are no longer just swinging...but unleashing some power. WOW, it was great. I have only played for about 10 months so, as a beginner...all these "firsts" are very cool.

 

Does anyone have any opinions on golf fitness? I'm thinking about sport specific exercises.

 

Thanks!

Your performance is dang impressive for someone who's been playing for just ten months... keep up the momentum, you know, your friend "Big Mo" as it's pretty obvious you're doing all the right things... go get 'em ;) :crazy2:

Golf specific exercises are a great thing to do if you want to continue improving. You want to combine flexibility exercises with strength exercises. I worked with a heavy ball and weighted body bar over the fall/winter (swing motion/trunk twists) and really saw the difference in the spring. If you don't play year-round, it is a great way to keep your golf fitness up. Also work on keeping my wrists and forarms strong, since that helps you when you have to hit out of the thick rough. I always went to the gym about 3x a week, I just incorporated things specific to the golf swing. If you like yoga, it is a great way to work on flexibility, strength, and balance.

It's not how...it's how many

That's the thing for sure. I try to do a lot of stretching before I play but the gym work will help more I think. Thanks!

Steph when do the sectionals start? Keep us updated on your progress and best of luck once again.

The Sectional is August 12th here. We are heading over to the course the weekend before to practice.

I ordered a new driver. Taylor Made R5 10.5 with a senior shaft. I like it...hopefully it will add some yards to my drives.

Hi, long time no post. I did not win at the Sectional last year...but I played pretty well. This year the group talked me into playing on a scramble team. We won...but it's not the same as competing individually. I would have moved up to the second flight too. Well, 1st flight next year right?

 

Meanwhile, the team scramble IS a lot of fun, and we are good together. We play a lot of charity tournaments, one of us owns her own business and sponsors us...we all wear red shirts with her company log on it. Good fun, and we placed 3rd at -9 last Saturday against all men. Woo Hoo! So we will be competing together at Legacy in Bradenton for the EWGA sectional, and I hope we keep to our strategy throughout. I think we have a real chance. We have to give 3 strokes so we need to play our best. Meaning, we need to keep the alcahol consumption to a minimum the night before!!

 

I'm also playing in a FWSGA tournament the day before. I played my first one a couple months ago and while I didn't place LAST..only one person played worse. Geesh! I enjoy the competition though, I really miss that from high school and college. This is a GREAT game and it's brought so much to my life.

 

Thanks all of you, for listening and being SO supportive!
