Its great to be back for another season. In preparation for a successful year I’ve removed the fire hydrant from outside the gate, chopped down the tree in the front lawn and cut up all my wife’s clubs with an angle grinder! It promises to be an awesome year with drama on and off the course. By the end of it we’ll know if Europe brought the Ryder Cup home, if Rory climbed the Major podium and most intriguingly if Tiger got Booed.
As well as the old favourites such as bet your balls we’ve got some cool new features for 2010. We have enlisted world clubmaker of the year Derek Murray from Foregolf to give us the low down on the latest advances in equipment and keep us up to speed with what’s happening on the tour truck. Derek gets clubs, shafts and gear to test literally a year before they arrive on the market so if something is coming, we’ll know first.
We’ve also teamed up with Titleist Performance Institute graduate Wayne O’Callaghan to get us fit for golf. TPI is used by loads of PGA pro’s including Padraig Harrington and we’ve been delving into his exercise regime to bring you some really useful tips to increase your mobility and range of motion. It’s truly amazing the difference some simple drills make in increasing power and accuracy.
This year I want to hear from you too. If you are one of those enjoying the €3 Friday night pints in Rosses Point or have witnessed any other golfing wonders, get a pic on your phone and whack it to me on firstname.lastname@example.org.
So get those clubs out of the shed, remove the four month old banana from your bag and put a fresh layer of Skuff Kote on your skates because its all systems go for 2010 with The SpinDoctor.
