About this blog

Every golfer has the thought at some point..

"If only I could consistently shoot in the 70s, then I would enjoy golf more."

We get lost in our heads, dreaming of a fantasy where golf was one day an easy game.

What if we didn't have to worry about water hazards, sand, or OB?

What if 3-footers didn't bring us anxiety?

What if we could enjoy that pure strike that we long for on every single shot?

I'd argue that the better a golfer gets, the more enjoyable the game is.

But.. not in the way that most golfers imagine.

In this post, I will be examining our love affair with golf, how we can enjoy the failures that the game inevitably brings us, and why golf will never get easier (but can become more enjoyable).

The Day Golf Became Easier

    • This is the way to go.  I have a Titan Fitness power rack.  It's no Rogue, but I haven't had any problems at all. Also, rowing machines are amazing.  Yoga is great, and so are "fun" activities to get in some cardio--basketball, biking/running with your dog, etc.  I take bike rides with my husky using a walky dog attachment.
    • I'll have to try it on an exercise ball. I've been doing them by taking my dumbbells up the basement stairs and pressing in the hallway. I don't have a problem doing OHP per se, just pointing out that my home gym setup is also limited by the limitations of my house. I can't do pull ups in my basement where my weights are either, so I got one of those doorway bars which I ended up no liking because I still hang down too low and have to bend my legs to do full range of motion. In the end I bu
    • Could you do seated OH presses? If you have an exercise ball, you could sit on that and do them. It will engage your core for balance at the same time.
    • That’s pretty much what I’m working towards. I’m going to get to the point where I can run 5k and then just mostly do sprints for runs. I have adjustable dumbbells at home and I can do most of my lifts with them. Unfortunately my basement has a low ceiling so I can’t do overhead presses or put a squat rack down there, or I would have bought one last year.
    • I am now on week 4 of the gym being closed. I am doing nightly walks with dog weather permitting, but all the strength gains made over the winter are diminishing. I would buy a weight set for the house if I had a place to put it. Hopefully things open up soon.
