Turning Stone Cold and Wet - Warming Up is Critical

I am always telling my players and golfers in general that warming up is vitally important to your performance on the course and for your overall golf fitness....but I didn't mean having to warm up before every shot.

Turning Stone this week has been very cold and very wet. Many of the players are not in the top 125 on the money list and their Tour Cards are in jeopardy. That means they are having to play strictly for the money.

You take that pressure and add in the weather, having to wear rain gear, playing on soggy fairways and wet greens and it is a grind. Playing in these conditions is brutal enough. The pressure is compounded when the money becomes the driving force in how you must play. This is when preparedness, golf fitness and mental toughness is so important.

I am headed home on Saturday to attend to some personal matters, but am wishing that my guy Jason Gore have a good weekend and fatten his wallet a bit.

I will be heading to Las Vegas in a week for the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. A film crew is coming to shoot new video and photos for the website, the blog, and for Golf Fitness Magazine.

Be sure to visit the newly designed GolfGym website for some great video clips with exercises and warm up techniques.

I'll keep you posted.
