Rehab is over, I will be still watching out for overdoing the golf effort as the training schedule returns to the optimum effect level. Since cutting back as part of the recovery process my golf has deteriorated, score wise. A good part of that was the result of the injury not from doing less practise. Yesterday I went out and into full flight training testing the limits of my body. Apart from some slight tenderness at the end of the day all was good, the horse liniment was applied liberally afterwards and once again excellent results. Still not craving oats and hay for meals either so there has been no side effects apart from great healing properties. There has been an associated improvement golf wise in the rehab period. Hitting less balls and maintaining the exerciser equipment routines my wrists have finally regained the strength to be able to rip through the swing. This has never been possible in the last 5 years of golfing due to the motor vehicle injuries from the 1980s. Yesterday I was a little thrown with this unexpected ability happening in my swing. With the Dreamswing it was easy to adjust to the change. It took a good workout with the PW and #5 iron, without the Dreamswing attached to realise the swing change was established. It is going to take some adjusting through practise for this to settle in my mind. Went out and played four holes with just a #5 iron to finish the day and the added power in hitting the ball was obvious and really great to experience. This weekend I have a stand up gig so will not play golf on Saturday. It was too good an opportunity to pass by appearing at a Beer Festival. I had no idea there was actually real organised beer Festivals in existence, this could become a religious calling. Actually considering not playing Sunday and dedicating the weekend just to golf practise. I feel this is the best way to regain the playing standard that was in my game prior to the rehab period starting. Hit the ball, Find the ball, Hit the Ball. Thankyou for your time and attention.
