Professional Golfers Turn To Yoga For Relief

    For professional golfers, multiple PGA championships can really take their toll on the body. Golf is certainly not a considered a contact sport, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t strenuous. Without the risk of collision injuries, professional golfers are able to keep driving toward their goals even as they continue to advance in age, if not for the aches and pains.

    Swinging a club for a living means repeatedly working only one side of the body, leaving these athletes with a feeling of muscle imbalance that can lead to injury.

    For World Champion golfer Tiger Woods, his career ambitions at age 38 are as real now as they were 20 years ago. Today, he still puts in a good deal of time firing golf balls at the golf course practice netting in order to keep a competitive edge on the course with the rest of them. But at this point in his career, even this golf legend is struggling increasingly with those limiting aches and pains that come with age.

    fence2jpg-6569f9c21385a54fWith North American groundhogs recently predicting a longer winter season than we had hoped, even the idea of a mere six weeks, gives us all hope that we will soon be swinging the sticks.

    Golf courses and facilities can certainly expect a quick start to the season when this long, treacherous and record breaking winter season comes to an end.  In addition to the spring thaw revealing the condition of fairways and greens, it is also an opportune time to get out and review other aspects of your golf course and facility that Jack Frost may have affected.

    With high winds, ice and snow storms, the winter can often leave your beautiful course in disarray come spring. Making it not only important to check up on fallen trees and debris around the course, but to ensure any golf equipment left to the elements is still in good working order.

    Nothing but Net: Remix!

    I know we discussed sports netting in our last post, and hopefully you went away with a better understanding of how essential those sports nets are to a well-stocked athletic facility. We talked about lacrosse and hockey and touched on the potential danger to players and fans. There are, however, sports with far less contact that can benefit from quality nets. 

    No, not fishing. That actually has a lot of contact - especially if you're the fish.
    I'm talking about golf! Let's face it; most of us aren't hitting the ball as straight or long as those guys on the Tour. If you want to make par you have to spend long hours at the range or on the course really working at your game. 

    Golf nets line driving ranges and golf courses, protecting people and property from the asteroid-like speed of a well-hit golf ball. Our general nylon golf barrier can be cut to whatever size application your course or facility may call for (yes, any size). Our netting is dyed black and treated with U.V. coating to protect it from the long summer sun. Black netting maintains a clean look, avoiding the kind of discoloration common in white nylon nets left exposed to the elements. Be sure you check out our Golf Netting Spec Sheet to learn more about Sport Systems golf netting solutions.
