Golf is a game that can only be played...
It only got colder the next night with a new record low of Minus 7. The forecast for Friday was a high of 37, but then more cold air moved in and we only got up to 30 for a high. Might get to freezeing by the weekend but I'm not counting on it. There is a mass of air to the east of Colorado, and that mass of air is NOT moving out, so the cold air we have here is stuck in place for now. What we need is some high winds to blow it out of here and let some warmer air in.
Putting is easy if you have the Right Putter.
Working from home (sort of a mental health day, I had a crazy week last week) temps hit low 50's so Michael and I hit the range mid afternoon. It was sort of cool, the balls were like rocks. It took about 10 swings before I actually felt like I was swinging a golf club and not some piece of weighted metal. 3/4 of the bucket was probably irons, maybe 10-12 hybrids/driver total. Not too bad considering I hadn't touched the clubs in 3 months. But I definitely was aware of my wrists and elbows feeling the impact, combination of the cold and being out of "golf shape".
It's not how...it's how many
You might want to consider getting shock reducing inserts installed inside of the shafts on most if not all of your clubs. They really make a big difference in cutting out the Sting you feel on mishit shos. And they hve NO effect on the weight or swing weight of your clubs, so they don't effect your swing, only reduce the sting at impact. It's easy to have done and fairly cheap if you have them installed at the same time as you have new grips installed on your clubs. Well worth the investment.
already have graphite shafts, it isn't the shock of hitting, it was the motion of swing with wrist cocking that I felt. I do exercises with dumbells to keep my forearms strong but the golf swing is special and unique.
Actually 2 days later I had a bit of residual soreness in the shoulders only, it is sort of the usual drill in early spring first couple of times out.
Graphite shafts in your irons help, but tests show that Pro Soft insets do MORE than graphite shafts. and if you install them in your graphite shaft irons you would get the benefit of BOTH. Just wanted to let you know your options are open.
