Re: At last I am ready : ) another Thaiman's golf thread

Ah, that's a nice stick, was looking at one of them myself on ebay recently.


It didn't have the right shaft though, and I've had enough of changing those things. I usually end up sticking together various things completely unrelated to the club. Many's the time I've tried to lift something of my bench, such as a grip, or measuring tape, only to find it glued firmly to the surface Smile


Anyway, enjoy your driver! Keep us posted with your exploits, both on-course and gear related!

Don't waste the money. Basic exercises and staying mobile is enough for most. That includes people who have had tumours removed from their spine. Swim as often as poss and don't give up golf.....slow your swing down !

Osteopath.  I was gonna post that earlier but don't know how to spell it!


Andy, Is that the fact?  I am a cripple at the moment (although went through 50 balls of pain at driving range yesterday Crying)  so i will never give it up.  Exercise eh....any particular type?

Well few clicks at my spine later, I am feeling fit again.  It wasn't Osteopath by the way...it's the other (un-spellable) one.


One more session (and few more 10 notes Sad) on Tuesday I should be back swinging again Yes

Worked in back rehab for years and saw the exercise route work for everyone (except those on a insurance claim who had an ulterior agenda) One guy arrived in a wheelchair and left 3 weeks later able to run a mile.

http://orthoinfo.aaos.org/topic.cfm?topic=A00302 these are good basics to start developing core strength. Do them for a week or so then look for the harder ones. You'll be surprised how quickly you develop !

Hey Thaiman, you may not thank me for this, as it can get addictive... but have you tried the free online golf game albatross 18?

Its cartoony and a little OTT, but boy can it be fun!
