High Tech Golf--Get the Aps

Here in the Northeast it's too cold to play but not to cold to prepare. Last week Pilates for Golf began at Pilates Principle in Latham. Nuhar teaches a stunning class that gets you both golf and swimsuit ready. No, I'm serious--real golf preparation and all the right stuff for posture and tone and if you fall in love with Pilates as I have the rest will follow.

But if you don't want to leave your chair until the grass is green you can still prepare by trying one of the many new golf aps. The link below from the Wall Street Journal has a great overview of online golf tips, teaching, web-based instruction or more. Just reading this will make you smile and plan ahead. guaranteed.

Winter Dreaming

Inside the kitchen cabinet  where I reach for my coffee cup each morning there is a small poster with this quote:   "In the depth of winter I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer." That was written by Albert Camus--philosopher, author and playwright.

I don't think Camus was a golfer. But he so well expresses a golfer's winter dream.

This weekend we are bracing for snow in the Northeast. Maybe as much as two feet is expected. It will be beautiful. The golf courses will be covered in white blankets. Children and adults will come with sleds and saucers and toboggans. They will laugh and scream and soar. They will love the golf course too.

But by my front door is a five-iron. It is waiting. It is reminding. It is patient. It is the symbol of the invincible summer that will come again for golfers.
