EDUCATION CORNER

Golf is Exercise*

*Golf Digest January 2012

Experts agree that adults should get 30 minutes of moderate –intensity exercise five days a week.

BUT DOES GOLF COUNT?  YES, according to The Compendium of Physical Activities which lists energy requirements for various activities in terms of metabolic rate (MET).

Moderate exercise is defined as anything that registers between 3 and 6 METs.

Playing golf ranges from 3.5 (riding in a cart) to 5.3 (walking). 

Important Statistic: Three Putt Avoidance

Excerpt from GOLFDIGEST January 2012- Lesson Tee by Hank Haney

“One STATISTIC the PGA Tour keeps is an Extremely Important Barometer of how well a player is performing.  It is called THREE-PUTT AVOIDANCE.  If you don’t believe me, look at Luke Donald’s statistics from 2011.

He went  500 Holes without a three-putt, and he finished the year No. 1 in three-putt avoidance.

For the recreational player, REDUCING THREE-PUTTS  is one of the biggest factors, IF NOT THE BIGGEST—in reaching a scoring goal. 

Even if you don’t make first putts, IMPROVING YOUR SPEED CONTROL ON THE GREENS  is the fastest way to take, I’d say, three shots off a double-digit handicap, or to break 80 or 70 for the first time if you’re a low-handicap player. You’ll thank me if you do.”

USGA and R&A Golf Rule Changes

"The proposed Rule 14-1b would prohibit strokes made with the club or a hand gripping the club intentionally held directly against the player’s body, or with a forearm intentionally held against the body to establish an anchor point that indirectly anchors the club.
 
The proposed Rule would not alter current equipment standards and would allow the continued use of all conforming golf clubs, including belly-length and long putters, provided such clubs are used in a non-anchored manner. The Rule would target only a few types of strokes in which the club is anchored, while preserving the golfer’s ability to play a wide variety of strokes in his or her individual style.
 
The proposed Rule change would take effect on January 1, 2016, at the start of the next four-year cycle for revisions to the Rules of Golf. This timetable provides an extended period during which golfers currently using an anchored stroke may adapt their method of stroke, if necessary, to conform to the requirements of the new Rule."
