Warm ups

Forums: 

Do you warm up BEFORE you play golf? What about BEFORE you hit balls at the range? Usually we think about getting to the course and warming up as meaning getting to the range and rapidly hitting a bucket of balls. Here's what a pro golfer does before he hits the course: Stretch, practice putting for 30 minutes, warm up hitting for 35 minutes, then pitch, chip, and hit sand shots for 10 minutes, then putt again for 10 minutes, and then finally, go to the tee.

Taint of Organized Crime Leads to Mass-Resignation at Japanese PGA

By Josh Sens

Crime doesn’t pay.

And neither does playing golf with organized crime bosses.

That’s one lesson from this week’s headlines in Japan, where executives of that country’s Professional Golf Association have opted to resign en masse after two of their colleagues were found to have played golf and socialized with a mafia chief.

Hot Yoga and the golf swing

Forums: 

OK, I've been doing hot yoga on and off for about a year now and I can clearly see that my flexibility is increasing. A form of yoga done at about 105 degrees and 40% humidity, it builds flexibility and core strength, focus, balance, all of which are important to golf

See the excerpt from an interview with professional golfer Josh Kendall:

How does yoga help with your balance while golfing?

2014 - The war on slow play heats up

You've seen the commercials: "While we're young!" shouts Annika. Named appropriately after the famous line uttered by Rodney Dangerfield's character in Caddyshack, "While We're Young" was conceived to combat the four fundamental causes of slow play: player behavior, course design, course setup and player/group management.

Series: PGA Tour

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (AP) -- Zach Johnson put together the storybook finish at Sherwood on Sunday that for the longest time belonged to Tiger Woods.

Johnson rallied from four shots behind with eight holes to play, holed out from a drop area for par on the last hole to force a playoff, and beat the No. 1 player in golf at the World Challenge when Woods missed a 5-foot par putt on the first extra hole.

"Pretty impressive what he did," Woods said. "He got me."

Old Dog doesn't need new tricks: Jimenez wins 4th Hong Kong Title

HONG KONG (AP) --- Miguel Angel Jimenez won the Hong Kong Open for the fourth time Sunday after winning a three-way playoff on the first hole to secure the victory.

Jimenez, 49, defended the title he won last year and became the oldest player to win on the European Tour after sinking an 18-foot birdie on the first playoff hole to beat Thailand's Prom Meesawat and Stuart Manley of Wales.

"It just gets better and better. I love Hong Kong and this course," said Jimenez, who extended his record as the oldest player to win on the European Tour to 49 years and 337 days.
