  1. Played a nice Executive course today with my Grandparents as their first time out for the year. Just nine holes but it was very relaxed we played rather quickly for a 3-some. I played well at +4 with only 3 “bad” shots. Two of which can be attributed to me not paying attention.
    All in all I would say I had a good round and ball striking with the new swing changes is really starting the click!

    Hope Everyone is getting out and Staying Safe!

  2.  Hi,

      I've been playing golf for about 15 years now. It happened by accident as I never thought I would be this addicted to the game. Not to mention waste a Saturday and Sunday afternoon watching some one else play the game. Now it is all I want to do with my free time.

    What I love about golf is the rollercoater of emotions it puts you through as you can easily go from king of the course to course jester in the time at it takes walk from one green to the next tee box. You always have to stay focused as it is never mastered.   I have also met many new people on the course who have become of course friends as well. No nicer group of strangers than fellow golfers

      I am from Buffalo NY and spend a lot of time at Cazenovia Golf Course  and Hyde Park Golf Club in Niagara Falls. I also get out to about a dozen different courses throughout the summer. I always enjoy playing a new course for the first time

      The weather in this area makes for a short season for most, but me and a friend have found ourselves out there looking for balls in the snow more than once.

     Being an over the road truck driver limits the time s I have to play so getting out any chance I am home is greatly appreciated. I do carry a set of clubs in my truck and have played at many out of my home area courses on many occasions.

     my user name comes from back before I ever thought of golfing and owned my own rig which was a purple International Eagle.

    I used to work a Cazenovia Park Golf Course for 5 years during college, I’m sure we’ve crossed paths before. Good to see more Buffalo guys on here.

  3. Hi,  at 57 with three boys under the age of 6, I am all in on strength and conditioning for golf and life.  Did you do the TPI Certification?  I am working to get my trainer to get certified.  I was in an accident a couple years ago that knocked my L4-L5 out of wack, so we do a 30 minute stretching routine after workouts to help maintain mobility, etc.  

    I did my certification through the NASM golf fitness program just because I was also taking my Certified Personal Trainer certification through them as well, but from what I’ve seen of the two programs they are extremely similar with a lot of the differences being in the wording and references they use.

  4. This is my hometown and I can say that this would greatly increase the ability of players in the area to practice and get others to enjoy the game of golf.

    When I originally saw the video it was on Facebook and Instagram but I’m very excited for something like this to be in the city. Gets the company and the game of golf out in front of people.

  5. I agree. I’m a strength coach by trade and do private sessions focusing on golf fitness.

    Often times if you can get your glutes and hip flexors to loosen up, the pain will subside. The next thing I would look at is your mid back (thoracic spine). These two things when tight or out of alignment can cause severe back pain. Feel free to PM me if you have more questions

  6. As a golf specific trainer I’m glad to see more and more people getting involved in the fitness side of their game. It can unlock so much potential and for many will make the sport so much more enjoyable while helping them to play longer with less fatigue!

    Great job guys and keep that determination!

  7. I’ve only ever had one putter and it’s an original Ping PAL. That’s not to say that I haven’t thought about buying a mallet style before but the only other profile that has caught my attention is the Tommy Armor Impact #3.

    I’ve played around with it a little bit at stores but it never seemed to look square to the ball for some reason. Really interested in other people’s perception of this and wondering if I’m the only one with this experience?
