  1. Years ago I suffered with the occasional, but intense, golf elbow. I had a book of stretches and found one that looked promising. It's pretty simple. Get on the floor (carpeted!) on your hands and knees. Turn your hands around, fingers facing towards you, flat on the floor. Gently lean back towards your heels until you get a nice stretch. I usually do it in 3 steps, about 20 seconds each, leaning back a little more each time. Since I've been doing this, a couple times a week, and before going to play golf, I have had absolutely no issues with golf/tennis elbow. None! My physical therapist says I'm stretching the ligaments in my arm and forearm that will tend to prevent inflammation in the elbow region. Try it and see if it works for you.
  2. I'm 74 and still play Stiff shafts and play to a 9-10 (though they're in the middle of the Stiff spectrum---e.g. Project X Stiffs tend to be a little too stiff). I think my driver swing speed is in the middle to high 90's. But I think the main thing is how you swing, and where do you tend to put the most energy. I've seen guys who swing "slowly" and very fluidly throughout the swing who seem to do well with the softer shafts, but if you're a little aggressive on the downswing (I am), you may still do well with a Stiff shaft. And then, of course, there's the kick point which can make a difference in how efficiently you apply energy to the clubhead...Agree with the guys who say, see a fitter.
  3. I'm 73 yrs old, play 2-3 times a week, high single-digit handicap, occasional Rules Official and student of the game. I used to walk all the time, but have been dealing with a loss of cartilage in my right big toe, which has stuck me in a cart most of the time. Trying to get back to walking the course, which helps with the rhythm of the game. An electric cart might be the answer! Ken Boulder, CO Usually ride in a cart these days. When I walk, I push a Sun Mountain V1.

  6. Ken/ Boulder, CO Use Perfect Practice mat in basement Have used several, including a BirdieBall mat many years ago. Would like to see their new version. Since I play munis, I'd say Medium speed is probably best.
