A good stretch before that first drive is sage golf instruction
Ok, so I got my first golf game in after a layoff of over six months. At first, everything was fine, I played badly of course, as with no practice those bad habits came flowing back. I expected that.
After 10 holes, I really started to feel it. It was a hot day too and by the time I had finished 18 holes I was dog tired.
What I didn’t expect though, was to wake up the next day with aches and pains so bad I could hardly move. Thank you very much.
I am five months shy of my 39th birthday and have to start to admit that I am not the athlete I once was. Maybe it’s the lack of exercise I am currently getting or maybe it’s just middle age, not so much creeping but, speeding up on me.
Whatever it is, I am going to have to start to take care of myself a bit better and try to remember all those stretching exercises that I was told about but didn’t really listen to.
Oh yeah, my new shoes were great. Well worth the late night trip back to the store.

I'm on the other side of 39 and know of what you speak. Where exactly did all those back muscles come from that hurt so much after a round of golf. Sadly, I get to play just enough to stay sore.
And, man, I played basketball he other night. Full-court. For 15 minutes at least before my lungs lept out of my body and threatened to kill me if I didn't stop.
When you first start feeling the effects of age, it's a real drag, man.
I think I'm going to go stretch.
