Correct Posture for the Shoulder

Championship Fitness by Kelly Shobe

In golf, many people mention rotator cuff exercises but neglect the shoulder blade/scapula. While exercising is very important, if your scapula is protruding, your shoulder will not be as strong or as stable as it should be. Your stabilizing muscles in the rotator cuff are attached to the floating bone that is designed to assist you during a golf swing.

How Do College Golf Scores Compare to Junior Golf Scores?

Article by John Brooks

It’s common for junior golf families to research college golf tournament results and, based on that information, determine which teams their son or daughter could ultimately play for. While this strategy makes sense on the surface, I would suggest further analysis before making any conclusions on which teams are potential “best fits.”

Is a score of 75 in a junior golf tournament comparable to a score of 75 in a college golf tournament? I ask this question of college golf coaches whenever I have the opportunity and always appreciate their perspective.

Making Practice Count

Matt Brown - Mike Bender Golf Academy

As a vital component to our full-time Junior Elite Program at the Mike Bender Golf Academy, practicing smart can make the difference between progressing toward your goals in an efficient and timely manner verses spinning your wheels and wasting your time on the practice tee. What should you practice? How long and why? All great questions for the amateur, junior, and professional player alike.

At the MBEGA we make it our goal to help all of our students understand what and when to practice. In fact, we have broken it down into a science; a science that involves specific assessments and test performed at various times of the year for each of our Elite junior golfers.

Legends Junior Tour (LJT)

Cole Hammer Shoots 68-67 To Win Bluebonnet Championship

Cole Hammer’s final-round 67 was enough to win his second Legends Junior Tour tournament in a row at the 14th annual Bluebonnet Championship. Mission’s Junmin Lee collected his second consecutive victory of 2015 in the Boys 14 & Under division after firing a 5-under 67. Greta Bruner of Conroe captured her first LJT victory after carding an even-par 144 tournament total.

At 6,227 yards for all boys and 5,748 yards for all girls, Brownwood Country Club already lends itself to low scores. But on a day when the wind was a mild 5-10 mph and there was abundant sunshine, birdies and eagles were plentiful. There were 335 total birdies and nine eagles in Sunday’s final round.

RU Afraid of Success?

The Mental Game is Authored by Michael Riggs

“I mean, come on, get real. Afraid of success? That’s ridiculous. Why do you think I practice, and sacrifice, and train, and compete, anyway? To succeed!! I’ve always sought success. That is what drives me. Plus, look at all of my accomplishments... those certainly aren’t the result of a fear of success. Are they?”

It certainly seems like a strange concept, at first take, but maybe, just maybe there is something to the possibility of being afraid to succeed. For example, success brings on heightened expectations. After all, the spotlight isn’t shining on those “in the middle of the pack” Or, consider the possibility that deep down you aren’t sure if you have the resources to commit to all that it would take to succeed.
