COMMON PROBLEM: "Golf Pride" Solution
Most changes, I have seen, over the years have to do mostly with material, and of course thicker grips for putting "Fatso". The grip, made by Golf Pride, really impressed me. The difference is feel, and hand position. The feel allows for a more relaxed grip allowing the muscles to work freely.
Design is really the big difference. Rather than the normal taper this grip is more sized for "both" hands. We all know the importance of hands when swinging a club.
So I suggest you give this grip made by Golf Pride a test. If you have an doubts try it with one club, and you will soon want to change grips on all your clubs. For more information click this link to their website click here
Another COMMON PROBLEM shared by many Seniors.
Well this is what "Senior Golfer" is about. Sharing common problems, and solutions to those common problems. As for lower back pain I have been testing a new belt (new to me). It is the Serola Sacroilac Belt. I have played 5 rounds. The first three, wearing the belt, I was pain free and my swing actually felt more powerful. The forth round I played the first nine holes without the belt, and by hole ten I was feeling the normal pain. I reached for the belt. The pain did not go away, but it did not get any worst. The fifth round I played 18 holes pain free wearing the belt.
Additional information about how the belt worked for me. Update
I now have played using the Serola Belt for over a year. The results are fantastic I have not had to take any pain medication, period. This is by itself outstanding. To play without pain and a much better swing foundation. OK here is one more suprising finding. I was unloading my golf equipment and I could not find my belt. Being a Senior I felt that I must have left the belt in the cart basket at the last outting, and considered it lost. Still I loosened up and perpared to play. Only 4/5 holes into the round my pain was really bad, and by the time I finished 18 holes I found it difficult to even get out of the car when I got home. To my suprise my Wife said I had left it on my desk when I wore it moving some funiture.
What I learned from this experience was a strong confirmation of the belt's benefit. No pain, no need for medication (hydrocodine), and a more stable foundation for my golf swing (no need to kick the right leg around just to finish my swing). The Serola Belt has earned my endorsement, and something I want to share with my fellow Senior Golfers. Full disclosure.. I do not get paid for my endorsement other than enjoying golf without pain.
The Serola Sacroiliac Belt is the only belt designed to normalize the function of the sacroiliac joint.
Non-elastic layer mimics action of ligaments Additional elastic layer provides compression and helps maintain correct posture No irritating buckles or pads Does not replace muscle function - improves muscle function - increases strength throughout the body Can be worn for extended periods without causing muscle weakness or atrophy The Serola Sacroiliac Belt - It Works While You Work!
Studies conclude that the sacroiliac joints are important sensors of large force streams between the trunk and legs in which the largest muscles of the body are involved. In this respect, the sacroiliac joint functions as a multi-directional force transducer.
