Tommie Copper Compression Shirt

4 posts in this topic

Saw an old thread, but it was for ankle sleeves, so I started this one.

So, has anyone tried their compression shirts, either sleeved or sleeveless.?  I'm thinking about getting a short sleeved t-shirt to see if it would help with my lower back getting sore.

I have used them for other sports (cycling), but for golf I don't like the feel.  I have used it once or twice on the course, but it felt restrictive.

Haven't used the TC but I wear compression underwear/undershirts every day. Started a couple of years ago when I had back issues. Not sure if it is snake oil but after two years I feel strange without it. I buy these funky shirts from ebay that are marketed as slimming shirts. I don't buy them for that reason just because they are super tight through the waist, feels good on my lower back. But getting the damn things on is a workout. They stretch but when not on about the size of a baby shirt.

Haven't tried TC shirt, but have used TC elbow braces… They are very light compression (as advertised), so if you are looking for  something with more compression/support you should be careful when looking at their sizing chart (maybe order a size smaller?) or look at a different brand (perhaps UnderArmour) for more True Compression feel if that is what you are seeking (of course they would;t have the copper fibers).   Good Luck

    • Custom Headcovers?
      Custom embroidery would be an option. Your initials, a logo or image could be used for a set. Premium Head Covers are available. Caddy Daddy offers the Inferno, Lucky and High Roller Casino based Themed Driver Head Covers. Features include 40,000 stitch embroidery on synthetic leather fabric with inside padding and polyester ribbed sock. http://www.caddydaddygolf.com/driver-head-covers.htm
    • Using Game Golf to Analyze Gaps
      That might be the case. My 4 iron is a more game improvement iron. It's a cavity back versus a muscle back. Also, I do use it off the tee more than the 5 iron, so the lie is perfect.  Maybe my game is more suited for a more GI type iron in the long iron set. It's something to consider looking into.   
    • "The Putting Bible" by Dave Pelz
      The very first thing Dave Pelz says In his book----- after the acknowledgements is. " I want to start this book with a short explanation. Look closely at the title. Notice that  I don't claim this to be  "THE" putting bible. I call it Dave Pelz's Putting Bible because it truly is "my" bible on putting. It is a compendium of my research, my studies, my test results, my teaching philosophy, and my beliefs about the art and science of putting. It is my bible or if you prefer, my notebook or data log  book-into which I have transcribed my thoughts, interpretations of test results, observations, and theoretical work that have been instrumental in forming my understanding of putting. It is also from this work that I draw my philosophy for teaching the putting game in the Dave Pelz Scoring Game Schools".      As far as the 8 seconds is concerned, and with apologies to Mr. Pelz let me summarize on page 122 5.6 Two Types of Muscle Memory Ridding a bicycle is one type of memory (long term) you never really forget. Your mind remembers only the body's most recent sensations (short term memory), and these, too, fade by 30 percent every 8 seconds. True or not I will still take his word for it. As it was done as scientific research. "about as accurate as the story of Noah's Ark"...............don't know, can't say, wasn't there, but will say this. If a booming voice coming out of the sky tells me to build a boat....trust me, I'm building a boat!!        
    • Rickie Fowler's new high-tops & pants...NOOOO!
      I have not wore high tops since '88,
      Not sure I could even fit anything labeled "skinny" or "slim fit". I prefer loose. Then again I have never been accused of being a fashion plate !
    • Changes in your bag that you are most excited about
      At the end of last years season I switched from my Nike cart bag back to my Ogio Grom stand bag.
      I am looking forward to walking and carrying every round this year.
      I like the idea of consolidating and shedding all the things I don't need, yet seem to carry.

      I wanted to go find a new driver (mine is 2009), maybe something adjustable with stiff shaft, but I dont think I can afford that this year!
