Sore Back and Hands From Golfing

The start of everything golf is going to happen in just a few days. After months of watching the snow pile up in my yard, moving the fluffy stuff and watching it slowly melt, it is time to start practice in earnest. Yup, spring has sprung and starting this weekend, it will be warm enough to practice outside without 4 or 5 layers of clothes. I am excited that the time has finally arrived to sharpen my skills. Unfortunately, my initial surge comes with the potential for injury, so I must take my time and stay focused on not ‘over doing my training’!

Golf Season Is Basically Over

It is that time of year when I look at putting my golf clubs away. The wet temperatures and cooler weather is the key indicator that it might be time to go through my end of season routine. 😦 😡 ^^’
