  1. Hockey players frequently make great golfers... but it can be that way with many sports because the basic throwing or hitting motion is to start the engine from the ground up on the downswing. If you analyze a hockey shot, the lower body opens the same way it does for throwing or hitting a baseball, or shot put, or ad infinitum.

This is obviously not a solution for most walkers. I notice after a college or high school tourney on a course I play the fairways are a mess with divots everywhere and no effort at all to repair them. What I do using a cart is fill my divot and mayber two or three more in the area. Two cont
  4. I'm in central west Texas, but called Houston my second home for a good while. Lots of great courses in the Houston area -- my favorite was Lochinvar (bent grass at the time -- a real rarity in that part of the state.)
  5. Welcome to the forum SoCal. I'm a newbie too but this sure looks like a great place. See you around.
