Cardiorespiratory Endurance

Championship Fitness by Kelly Shobe

With increased demands on time, young golfers want to workout quickly but keep their cardiorespiratory endurance at optimal efficiency. High Intensity Interval Training involves alternating between very intense bouts of exercise and low intensity exercise, preferably at a 1:4 interval ratio for beginners. So jog at a moderate intensity for 60 seconds then sprint for 15 seconds (complete 10 times) but only once or twice a week to increase anaerobic and aerobic capacities.

Read about the benefits of improving your cardiorespiratory endurance in my article by selecting "More..." below.


Should I Communicate a Poor Performance to a College Coach?

Article by Coach Gleason

After forwarding your initial introductory email, resume, and swing video to college coaches, you’ll want to forward periodic updates of your tournament results to keep the coaches well informed on your results. From time to time when talking to clients, the question arises, “Should I email a coach after a poor performance?” Certainly, it’s understandable that you want to highlight your best achievements, both on and off the golf course, to garner a coach’s interest, and it’s important to communicate these achievements throughout the recruiting process; however, it’s never a good idea to try to hide from a poor performance along the way.

First, a coach is going to look at many factors when determining your potential as a recruit and will certainly look at your entire body of work when it comes to tournament results. College coaches also realize every player will have off days and/or tournaments.


Mid-American Junior Golf Tour (MAJGT)

Adrienne Rohwedder Wins Autumn Open

The final round of the Autumn Open came to a close this afternoon just as the sun was setting over Kelpie’s Corner at Mistwood Golf Club. The Mid-American Junior Golf Tour crowned two new champions this weekend with Ricky Costello (2017) of Homer Glen, Ill. and Adrienne Rohwedder (2019) of Prospect Heights, Ill., each winning their respective divisions.

In the Girls Division, Rohwedder carded three birdies in her final round to capture her first MAJGT title. Francesca Saban (2015) of Orland Park, Ill. and Nicole Wetoska (2016) of Glenview, Ill., were tied for second after regulation, but Saban birdied the first playoff hole after sticking her approach shot three feet from the hole.

Saving Strokes with Your Short Game

Todd Casabella - Mike Bender Golf Academy

Many strokes can be saved in the short game. When you miss a green your ability to save par is an obvious benefit to your score. But there's more to a good short game than. It provides confidence to attack the golf course. If your confident you can get up and down from anywhere, you can play aggressive.

At the Mike Bender Golf Academy we teach four basic short game shots: low, medium, high and flop. The shot you select to play depends on many factors, the most basic three being the lie of the ball, the landing spot on the green and the amount of roll. Once you have assessed these factors you pick the club and the type of shot.


Mistake After Mistake

The Mental Game by Michael Riggs

Tell me if this sounds familiar…

The round is over and you are driving home unconsciously replaying the missed five foot putt for birdie, or the duck hook that found the center of the pond, or the simple chip shot that carried all but eight inches, or… and, with each painful replay you find yourself shaking your head back and forth, ever so gently, wondering what went wrong.

The truth, first and foremost, is that your concept of the game is wrong.
