Living the Dream
By Eric Fowkes
As I teed it up on the 18th hole, I knew if I made par I could win. Dogleg left, about 500 yards, bunkers on the right side of the fairway and trees all down the left. The pressure was intense. I had been playing well but had one disastrous hole on the back nine that cut my safety margin to nothing. Par or better was the only way. I had the honors and the 3 other players in my group were mumbling words of encouragement, even though one of them was in the race for first along with me. One of the other players said, "Just keep it in the fairway". WHAT? The kiss of death! NEVER say that to someone who MUST keep it in the fairway!
How To Improve Your Golf
Mental Tip Contributed by Michael Anthony
A fast and easy way to improve your golf is to control your emotions because they affect your brainís chemistry and performance.
First, you begin by asking yourself, "How strong is my desire to improve?" The strength of desire necessary to improve is in direct proportion to the degree of success you wish to attain. If you desire to be the best golfer in the world, you need to have the strongest desire. On the other hand, if you only want to be average, you only need an average desire. So start by deciding if you really desire to improve your golf and are willing to put forth the effort to get better.
Hand and Wrist Injuries in Golf
© Rob Mottram PT ATC 99
If you stop and think about it, the hands and wrist are probably the busiest parts of our body. Imagine trying to go through an entire day without using your hands. In the golf game the hands and wrists are very important with their connection to the golf club. While the fingers and hands grip the club, the wrists help place the club in the correct position through out the swing. Difficulty in proper gripping or wrist movement can create poor results in club placement and therefore ball flight. Because of the frequency of hand and wrist use, on and off the golf course, problems may develop that inhibit playing well and pain free.
Stop the double standard - College athletes should get paid
By JOE FRISARO
UsFANS Managing Editor
Lost in the commotion of college football's rivalry weekend was this benchmark bit of news: "CBS locks up NCAA Tournament for $6.2 billion."
Shows how numb we've become to the rising economics of sports when multi-billion dollar contracts don't even make front-page headlines. Still, you can't bury the facts here, folks.
