I voted "yes" with the understanding that no organization is perfect. Sure, courses need to be set up to allow for maximum roll out in the fairway and some speedy greens to make it entertaining to the casual golf watcher. The PGA Tour is in business for itself but their tournaments do raise good amounts of money for charities. I watch some of most PGA Tour tournaments and do enjoy them and agree that they do help the business of golf. Although they are often involved in controversy I do look to the USGA to maintain the integrity of the game and sponsor the US Open championships.
Maybe. Or roll your PW back a little and play fewer wedges.
To your latter question, it depends on whether you want an extra club somewhere else. For instance, if you can hit little controlled shots with your PW, then you could get an extra club club at the top end of your bag, like a driving iron or hybrid or fairway wood. At your speed, having an extra "big" club like a driving iron/hybrid or something might be good for you. It really depends on what kind of shots you're more likely to face and whether you'll use the clubs.
Some guys don't even carry but 3 wedges: 48, 54, 60, for example. That 6 degrees of separation helps cover a wide variety of wedge distances while freeing up room at the top for other things.
If the cieling is high enough, indoor swing practice is viable. Full swings, pitching, chipping, and putting can all be done indoors.
Just make sure the cieling is high enough.
Put up a net to hit balls into. If no net, then fake golf balls work well. A guy I know up in Utah, hits balls into an old mattress, set up against a wall.
For outdoor exercise, walking a mile or two every day can keep a person in decent shape. I walk about 5 miles a week. This in addition to my 2-4 rounds of golf each week.
Just about any type of daily exercise is a good thing, regardless of the weather.
Maybe find an old "Kallassy Swing Magic" club to swing on a daily basis.. Can't find one, make your own. ,
I documented and discussed my torn bicep ( see below). The recover has been slow, but good. However in the process I have acquired a nasty case of tennis elbow in the opposite arm.
After 5 months of rehab, I have begun swinging, slowly and lightly. Luckily when my league starts I only have to play 9 holes. Anything more and my Dr has told me my arm will be tired and show weakness, from what it used to be.
One of my greatest fears moving forward is re-injuring the arm. This fear is based on a few factors.
it is cold when I first start playing (usually 40s-50s), therefore I will be tight
My home course does not have a range, so any loosening is done just swinging clubs.
Because of work, I am not always able to get to the course with ample time to stretch and warm up.
I notoriously over swing, with all the brute strength I can muster.
So I was wondering if anyone has used compression sleeve to hold their bicep and forearm?
I have used them when I tweaked my thigh and it seemed to work.. However the thigh does not need to be as flexible in the golf shot as my left arm.
Does anyone wear a full or partial compression sleeve? if so any recommendation on a brand and was it difficult to adapt?
Did you find it beneficial?
Any thoughts or advice are appreciated.
