Have you completed your "pre play inspection" yet?

Hope you pass mate, the alternative doesn't bear thinking about!

Played Duns this week,what an excellent wee course. Some really good holes, especially on the front nine.

Well worth a visit, not expensive,and some excellent views on the way round.

Sock length needs to conform and tailored shorts require the crease to be prominent. 

 

Out of interest, what is their policy on metal spikes? I change all my shoes to old school Champ metal spikes out of preference. I'm not keen on soft spikes as they clog up to easily.

Old toothbrush cleans them up, never used metal spikes for years.

Don't want to be getting the old toothbrush out every 5 mins to clear the cleats.

Good to see the lack of mat usage has allowed good aeration and encouraged some nice growth 🤣

A nice trip to the physio today seems to have helped a lot... Hopefully... I'm playing, Thursday, Friday, Sat and Sunday this week! 

 

I can't go through that pain again on the course!  😞

Do an online search for sciatic stretches. I usually feel a bout coming and start doing the stretches 3 or 4 times a day and it usually stops it from really kicking in.

Thanks - I played on Sunday and hit a 373 yard drive on a 375 yard par 4 - wind assisted obviously. I've never driven that green before and always thought it might be possible... I was so close.... But hitting it well enough - I also drove the last into the wind at 290,,, But walking and swinging hurt like hell

Wonder if they're the same 3 I do.

 

- Pull alterate knees into your chest

- Rotate pelvis in a dry humping of the air fashion (oooh errrr)

- Knees together and move from side to side

Fortunatley for me my sciatic pain doesn't bother me while playing or being active in general. It's not sciatica itself I suffer from, took me years to find out it's actually piriformis syndrome. A tiny muscle deep in the arse cheek that runs right across the sciatic nerve, so when it becomes inflammed it presses up against it.

Nope - there are 

1 - Bring feet together towards chest and push knees down 

2 - Left foot against wall at right angle - right foot over the left knee - Push down on the knee and pull on the right foot - 

3 - Kneel on 1 leg - push the other foot forward to, stretched but keeping foot flat on the floor- Hands above head and turn to sides stretching - 

 

I am not sure it if it Sciatica now - he said that it was something to do with my Hip - - but the nerve was trapped - he never used the S word

Depends entirely on how quick the home club uploads the results

Finished 9th at the Longniddry scramble. Blew 2 shots on 16/17 which would have got us 3rd and in the prizes.

 

Letham Grange pairs this Sunday.

Las Americas, del Sur & Adeje all playing short for this time of year, can't wait to get back to Kilspindie with a 15/20 mph westerly and the tight manicured prestine divot free fairways.
