Jogging, working out & golf. WTF?

About 6 weeks ago Mrs. No Three Putts dragged me to the gym to join her for a workout. So I reluctantly went and got a week long pass to try it out. Little did I know, I'd become hooked on fitness. It's unreal. I now jog in the morning at 6:00 AM before work, then when I get home in the evening from work I go to the gym and workout.

Heck I even ran in a 5K race after three weeks of training. Race Results - I'm in the 35-39 age group.

Why do I mention this recent fitness bug I've gotten? Because I've played golf 3 times since I started and I have not played better golf in over 10 years. I am trying to figure this all out. I start running, working out and even eating healthy (something I have never done in my life) now all of a sudden I can play golf again. Does getting my lazy ass into shape really equate to better golf? I'm not sure. I think psychologically it has helped me, which in turn has improved the mental part of my golf game.

I get out there now and I do very little thinking. The less thinking I do on the golf course the better. I played today under fairly windy conditions out at Emerald Dunes in West Palm Beach and shot a very solid 81. And to think I could have been at the office today.

A day of golf, instead of work, is like a sore pecker, you can't beat it.

Thats great Larry! I for one think my slump lately may be fitness related...I have not been running and working out or sleeping all that well, but thats all changing with the weather. Let us know if the handicap drops accordingly.

I find your theory to be weak and lacking scientific merit.
The best round of my life was a 69 about 3 years ago.
It came in the middle of a 5 day drinking binge in Vegas.

Congrats on the improvement. I personally find that my fitness routine conflicts with my golfing.

I train for running events lightly from March - June, and golf heavily during that time. I then train heavily for running June - September, and golf lightly.

When I'm training for running I am often too short of time to go to the course or range as much as I'd like.

How it affects my play, I'm not sure. But if it helps yours, good news and keep me informed.

John S. said...

BTW I am also very envious that you can golf now when there is 8 inches of snow on the gorund here in Michigan.

the drinking thing has to do with not thinking, just playing the game ....

You may have something there. I have noticed that all of the flatbellies seem to play better golf. Maybe the absence of extra gut makes them have a better swing. Do ya think?

I came across this web page one night sitting in a hotel room so honestly I dont have much better to do. But anyways here I go:
1. Your 5 day drinking binge and shoting a 69 is one of 3 things 1)CRAP 2)you didnt really have to much to drink 3)you are the luckeist man alive
So first off you cant drive a car too well when your had a little to much to drink, so how the hell do you plan on hitting a ball into a hole when drunk.
2. Alright working out does really help your game; I follow a very tight workout thatconsists of a 8 mile run in the morning, 4 hours at the course, 2 hours at the gym, 4 hours at the course, and another 5 mile run at the end of my day. Since I started my workout I have dropped my Handicap from 3.2to a 0.7, and yes that is a USGA confirmed handicap. You can't bullshit someone whos already done it...
And yes I am 100% positive that a workout routine works, due to the fact that I am a State Champion Golfer, and have competed in the U.S. Junior Amatur Open.

to the above extra special golfer, FYYFF.
4 over today , into the wind, uphill all 18.

Anonymous said...

going from a 3.2 to .7? How about the fact that you are on the course 4+4=8 hours a day.

Anonymous said...

alright to the last two comments.

To the guy about the hours of play thing, yea thats kind of the point of me writing that but you do have a good point.

The the guy about his 4 over thing, try this.

How to build a niche blog empire..

Over the past year or two people have become more and more obsessed with blogging.

Blogs have proven themselves over and over again to be
great methods of generating a huge income from part-time
work.

With Google experimenting with blog technology more
and more, this is surely not a fad.

Creating blogs in niche topics is a very easy and effective way for the beginning home business owners to see their first success.

More specifically, if you write a blog covering niche topics, you'll easily generate traffic to the blogs which then turns into income with the help of Adsense.

Two prime examples of the niche blogging sensation are
Jason Calacanis and Darren Rowse.

Learn what these two guys are doing and see how you can
build a nice nest egg by niche blogging:

"Help me if you can I'm feeling down" - I also think I must be lost.

I was searching for Elvis and somehow ended up in your blog, but you know I'm sure I saw him on the golf course yesterday. Now this is strange because usually I see him in the supermarket.

Honest really, last time I saw him there he was right in front of me, next to the steaks singing "Love me Tender".

He said to me (his lip was only slightly curled) "Boy, you need to get yourself a shiny, new lcd tv to go with that blue suede sofa of yours.

But Elvis said I, In the Ghetto nobody has a lcd tv .

Dude I'm All Shook Up said Elvis. I think I'll have me another cheeseburger.

Then I'm gonna go home, put ma dancin' suit on, munch me some uppers and freak out to that maaaaaaaaad surfing scene in Apocalypse Now on ma lcd tv .

How cool is that boy?

And then he just walked out of the supermarket singing. . .

"You give me love and consolation,
You give me strength to carry on "

Strange day or what? :-)

Life Satisfaction
by: make money on the web

Learn how to enjoy life and nature rather than possessions.
The next time you feel like spending money, head to your
local park where you can enjoy the warm sun, green grass,
and towering trees without spending a dime. Being happy
in life is far better than buying item after item. Having
an inner peace is better than having a house filled with
“things.” That does not mean you cannot enjoy some of the
finer things in life it just means learning how to be happy
with yourself and not “things.”

I agree,

I love Tiger Woods. and recently I have bought stock in it. Not like real stock on Wall street, but a stock market that is strictly for sports.

You have seen it? Its pretty cool. You buy issues for your favorite golfers and you make real money. Not like a fake stock simulator. I cash out Dividends each time your golfer plays in a tournament. Also I can sell my players stock when the price goes up.

check it out if something like this interests you.
heres a link http://allsportstrading.com

This site has lots of data about dividends and game pots and golfers. It also has alot of information about how the market works.



See you there!
