Weak lungs make you FIVE times more likely to die from heart disease. Lung disease is perhaps America’s primary cause of human inflammation and vulnerability. It is a major health negative!

Do you know how strong your lungs are … what your ‘Pulmonary Efficacy’ is?

Are you breathing properly and efficiently? Do you take a few minutes a day to engage in ‘Deliberate Deep Diaphragmatic

Breathing’. (DDDB) Do you utilize the potential deep volume of your lungs or breathe in the shallow, top segment? Why would any person accept using as little as 20% of our ‘Lung Capacity’? How would your automobile function on a 20% air volume capacity? That would not only cause fuel imbalance but also dramatically reduce horsepower!

We are certain you will enjoy Andy Rooney's comment gems! He says so much with so few words!

I've learned.... That being kind is more important than being right.

I've learned.... That when you harbor bitterness, happiness will dock elsewhere.

I've learned.... That having a child fall asleep in your arms is one of the most peaceful feelings in the world.

I've learned.... That the best classroom in the world is at the feet of an elderly person.

I've learned.... That when you're in love, it shows.

The ‘Current Shot’ (the one in your face) must ‘Set-Up’ your next shot. That is why your ‘555 Team’ refers to this game as ‘Billiards Golf’. It is rarely what you sink (Hole In One) but what you leave ‘In the 5/10/15 Foot Circles’ that really matters! Efficient ‘Chips and One Putts’ are absolutely essential and make you look really good to all the golf club members and to your playing partners!

This truth is why we invest in ‘Course Management’. It is called ‘Work Smart Golf’.

‘The Great Game’ is truly an intellectual journey! Make good plans and execute them!

Here is a pertinent thought for you?

If you think you are, then you are! ‘Desire, Honesty and an Open Mind’ matter every minute!

The prudent reality is to make sure you have no underlying health issues that might preclude a full range of golf and general exercises. Some people cannot play 18 energetic holes. Well then, perhaps some regular ‘Putting, Chipping, Short Game and walking 6 to 9 holes with a golfing buddy will have to suffice! Slow and steady wins most races!

There is a very practical saying “Up Off Your Butt, Move Your Feet and DDDB!” (Deliberately, Deep, Diaphragmatic Breathing … you can accomplish this ‘Work Smart’ activity sitting in your back yard, but you have to actually “DO IT NOW!” It is just a decision!)

The ‘Pivot Engine’ (Lower Body Machine – LBM) goes ‘Horizontally Round & Round’. The ‘Lever Assemblies’ (Upper Body Machine – UBM) goes ‘Vertically Up & Down’. These two champion energies MUST cooperate in the ‘Bottom Half of the Golf Swing Circle’ or one shall just find this game as a full serving of ‘Purgatory’!

Initially both of these forces are ‘Variables’ … unbroken and untamed mustangs! Not good rides! Our goal must be to establish one body segment as a ‘Constant’. In this logical manner we can get closer to ‘Consistency’. (see ‘Probability Of Success’)

Which one do we tame first? The ‘Pivot Core or Engine’ is our ‘Work Horse’, the ‘Alpha Herd Mustang’. The ‘LBM’ is absolutely ‘Job #1’. By combining proper ‘Set-Up’, ‘Forward Inclination & Knee Flex’, we shall soon discover our ‘Ideal Full Swing Plane’ and ability to accomplish ‘Horse Power’, ‘Clubhead Speed’ and Clubface Aim Control’. (a ‘Target Lever Control Element’ along with Bottom Of Swing Arc [BOSA] and your #4 Pressure Point’)

A first question might be, “How Many Wedges Are There?” The second question is ‘How many do I need?” We refer to the ‘Wedge Cluster’ as ‘The PASLX Cluster’, meaning ‘Pitch (48 degrees), Approach (52), Sand (56), Lob (60) and Extreme (64 degrees)’ wedges. The mid to short iron end of your bag utilizes what we refer to as ‘4 Degree Splits’. Each club, (working smaller to bigger numbers) gets 4 degrees more loft per club as indicated above.

The Club Length of this ‘Cluster’ is usually the same for the five short clubs. The Lie Angles are usually the same or similar. The Dead Weights (about 300 grams) and Swing Weights (D3 to D4) are also the same or similar. Thus, the ‘Delivered Clubhead Speeds’ should be very similar. So, what do we get from this ‘Five Club Cluster’? Each higher ‘Loft’ produces a known steeper ‘Ball Flight Gradient or Trajectory’ and ‘Underspin’ resulting in decreasing ‘Distance’.

What is an alternative to this ‘Targeted Icing’? The answer is ‘Total Body Icing’. If you decide to jump into a freezing lake, that shall accomplish ‘Total Systemic Icing’ (TSI).

What does this accomplish other than being able to brag about how tough you are?

‘Total Systemic Icing’ (TSI) super cools your entire physiology. This puts a significant amount of systemic stress and thermal demand on your circulatory system and ambient temperature … even to a dangerous level. It is not all that far removed from a ‘Physical Stress Test’. What is the benefit? There may be very little net value. Be cautiously cogniscent and aware!

There are two distinct sides, aspects or ‘Hemispheres’ of the generally circular or radial ‘Golf Body Machine’ 1) The ‘Lower Body Machine’ (LBM - Core) and 2) The Upper Body Machine’. (UBM - Lever Assemblies)

Additionally, there are two different sides to this total machine 1) The forward Target or Swing Side and 2) The Aft Brace or Hitting side. Through the ‘Impact & Separation Zone’ (I&S), ‘The Swing or Fulcrum Side’ become quite ‘Stacked Vertically’ … the Shoulder Socket, over the Elbow, over the Target Hip, Knee and Ankle. These are properly referred to as ‘Primary Articulating Joints. (PAJ). (see ‘Bottom Of Swing Arc’ or ‘BOSA’ - key swing tasking)

During this same ‘I&S’ phase, (Impact Fix & Impact or Compression Zone) the Brace or Hitting Aspect also become somewhat ‘Stacked’ considering the same ‘Components’ (PAJ) as above.

The ‘Physical, Mechanical and Mental’ components, ingredients, make up the global pathway of our golf lives. No one comes to golf truth and reality without a full embrace of ‘The Physics Of Rotation’ and ‘The Geometry Of The Circle’. We cannot enjoy ‘The Great Game’ without some dedicated Newtonian servitude! Look at all golf strokes open-mindedly and with a hunger!

It you have a purpose in your golf activities (as small as cleaning your clubs after each use or using a dedicated ‘Pre-Shot Routine’) it is analgesic and comforting. If the outcome is positive, perhaps one should add more ‘Process and Outcome’ spices to improve the flavour?

The pathway to golf happiness, the source of it all, is via ‘Simplicity Conquering Complexity’. Master the small before moving on to the big … Short Swing before the Full Swing! “There is a Putt In Every Drive!” (see ‘The Essential Elements’ - Clubface Aim, Clubhead Path, Clubhead Speed, Sweet Spot & Angle Of Attack’. No single golf procedure anywhere world-wide takes place without all five of these ingredients.)
