  1. I'd like to resurrect this thread. After a long off-season I took my first ~60-75 swings to get fitted for new clubs and I feel like I got hit by a truck. Playing golf makes me more sore in places I can't even imagine than heavy lifting ever has.
  2. Didn't even notice this... In my head just centered down the middle with gym and golf in red and repeat in white. GYM GOLF REPEAT If I could be greedy could I get two so I could gift one to my dad? These are great.
  3. I feel like this is more or less my original idea. IMO these guys can be at best described as "built for golf" and I'm yet to see a Tour pro who is objectively muscular/built, regardless of how functionally fit or athletic they are. That's pretty much why I posed the question whether people who have a passion for golf draw a line in the sand between their fitness goals and golf game (like I do) or try and have them work together.
  4. I always saw Tiger’s physique as vastly overrated in terms of build... Koepka is maybe on his way there... Rory and JDay are just slim guys wearing a size too small... Especially Jason Day... I guess by “work out” I actually mean “lift weights”. But obviously we all perceive these guys through different lenses.
  5. My only interjection is that fitness is my profession so I’m well versed in what to expect from regimented exercise/nutrition... It’s just a measuring stick thought as to whether someone is “built”: walking on the street in a well fit shirt, can people tell you work out? Vain, sure, but that just ties back to my question... I work out for what I see in the mirror not for my golf game.
  6. I'm sure there's a good reason why there's never really been a truly muscular/built Tour player... Athletic/lean yes, but nobody I would see in street clothes and say "yeah, that guy definitely puts in the time at the gym."
  7. At this point in my life (23) I can outdrive my father (56) by about 40yds (250's v 290's). Jokes on me though 'cause he can still bench press more to go along with the rippling 6-pack I've been chasing after the last 4+ years.
  8. My own take: I take fitness/exercise probably more seriously than my golf game. My gym time is entirely geared toward physique development (isolated weight lifting). I can say confidently that my "brand' of fitness affects my golf negatively and vice versa. Not so much performance, but really how prepared my body feels to do one or the other. Playing 18 holes with a chest pump and DOMS from yesterday's leg workout adds a whole new element to the game managing pain, stiffness, soreness, etc. Then the flip-side would be golf generates its own set of aches when you're actively ill-preparing your body for it.
  9. Used to work at a golf course in college which included 2-3 range picker sessions per day... From experience getting hit with a ball inside one of those things literally sounds like a gun shot. But yeah, I still aim for it.
  10. Stupid aggressive. Constantly banging drives that I failed to shape through fairways, sending approach shots over the green that didn't have enough spin, nearly dunking chip shots only to have them slide 8 feet past the hole. Refusing to leave the driver in the bag on par 4's under 400yds even though my 100yd and in game is my weakest asset.
  11. Golf and fitness pretty much dominate 90% of my existence professionally and personally.
  12. Adam Goodman is back from the dead with a brand new swing and more importantly a brand new outfit. Ready for your hyper-critical analysis. HIT ME. I don't know why it's so small.
  13. 33-37-70 (-2) having trouble keeping focus on the back playing alone.
