Sport: Golf

I am by no means, a golfer. I have played once in my lifetime, not including mini golf. On my first hole I birdied and it was all downhill from there. I have a terrible golf swing and very little patience for the game. I think that I would probably enjoy it if I was somewhat better at the game.

I was checking out the perfect golf swing dot com and started reading the FAQ section. Slicing the ball seems to be one of my big problems. Luckily there was a question about it and an answer.

“Question: Why do I slice and periodically hook the golf ball?

Answer: The left hand is probably turned to far to the right or the left when gripping the golf club.”

Sounds pretty simple but there is a lot of science behind the perfect golf swing. The program was developed by Physical Therapist, Jim Clark. Before Jim developed the Perfect Golf Swing program he developed a state-of-the-art rehabilitation program for Stroke and Spastic Cerebral Palsy patients. Jim studied the patterns and motions of the professional golfers and coupled that with his extensive knowledge of the brain, muscles and joints to create the perfect golf swing.

I’d like to learn how to move my body in the precise motions in order to hit the golf ball and make it go where I want it to go. Maybe then I might start appreciating the game more.

  1. Hey, you should try disc golf! It is a lot of fun and easier to pick up than regular golf…not to mention much more laid back. And trust me it’s not like just picking up a frisbee and tossing it around. There is definitely a technique to throwing a disc golf disc as well.
