As we complete our backswing we should feel the strain in the inner thigh of our right leg, rather than the inside of the right foot.

Maxx it is a pity that anatomical language wasn't around when Abe wrote Essentials of Golf and Down to Scratch. When I look at the photos of his swing and read what he said he felt it can get pretty confusing for the reader. I had trouble following it and entertained a thought that he may not have been the author but was feeding info to the author. I guess we will never know.

I’ve read the Essentials of Golf a few times now and still don’t understand half of it, haha. I’m sure you could get ten people to read it and everyone would interpret most of it in a different way.

There are a few key things I wish I knew when I played years ago. It has shown me a coach I had was completely clueless.

The initially movement of the hips is the main thing I wish I learnt years ago.

The last game I played I shot 91, golf is not for me anymore. ;)

When I was studying Abe I was playing regularly with C and comparing what he did to Abe's descriptions. I ended up giving Abe's theories on the pivot back onto the book shelf.

Really! I can't picture that. I am looking into being an athlete since I had both knees replaced. I will be a low impact athlete.

See you had a couple of good players in your group, I have played a few seniors events and will try to play a few this year too.
It is easy to get dehydrated and sunburnt if you forget the basics but you won’t be the first or last.

That is about the same age I was when I changed my concept of what the golf swing was about. I am 74 now and am a better ball striker than before the changes.

“Lucky”
Keeping track of your BSL ( blood sugar level) can be hit and miss sometimes because if your low you need to go for a leak and if your high you need to go for a leak. I was testing mine after 9 holes so I could do what was needed. You probably know what works and what does not but maybe Melbourne weather is putting your normal bsl out of whack and you just have eat some snacks to keep it at a level your happy with.
Good luck Monday.

No shame in using a cart on a day like today mate. It gets quite sticky out in the meadowlands of Yering.

In the Senior events you have to get a medical clearance for carts if you are under 75 unless the event is cart use only.

During summer if the temperature is over 35 i often jump in a cart if I am playing around midday. Depending on my playing partners and if they are walking or carting if I am playing around 8 am I will walk but if I have a couple days of golf I use a cart.

At Gardiners we can use a cart during Summer as a cautionary measure so situations like this do not occur. During the cooler months either over 70 or a Certificate.
