Golf Tip/Advice from Head Golf Professional Greg Yeomans

Monday, 27. January 2014 9:00

How can I be ready for the new season when there is snow on the ground?

Stretch-MateWith the arrival of winter, Head Golf Professional Greg Yeomans offers members some tips to prepare for the 2014 golf season without playing any rounds.  The first suggestion is to do lots of stretching.  This can be done utilizing the TRUE Stretch offered at the Fitness Center.  Once we stop certain activities such as golfing on a regular basis, we get tight and our swing can become restrictive or too short.  This can lead to timing and swing flaws.  Because  I don’t play from November through March, I make sure I stay loose by doing stretches.  

In addition, members are able to practice their swing at the Indoor Golf Center located onsite in the Cart Barn.  The hitting bays and simulator create a perfect environment to work on your fundamentals.  Whether you need to make a grip change, improve your posture or fix your swing path, utilizing the simulator can help you achieve all of these goals.  The worst thing you can do is to be sedentary.  IndoorGolfCenterGreg suggests you stay loose by stretching and if nothing else, hitting some balls to maintain your timing and rhythm so you are ready to start the new season. And if you need some professional advice, Fitness Director Dave Maloney at the Fitness Center or Greg Yeomans at the Golf Pro Shop are happy to arrange a private appointment and work with you to keep you flexible and in shape during the winter months.

The Burdenko Method

Wednesday, 8. January 2014 17:20

Fitness Director Dave Maloney has recently added certification  in “The Burdenko Method” to his resume.  This practical application of water and land exercises is based on a holistic approach to rehabilitation, conditioning, and training.  Water is a great healer and the ideal medium for rehabilitation, conditioning and training.  The hydrostatic (passive) and hydrodynamic (active) properties of water provide an optimal environment for safe and effective therapy and conditioning.  With little or no weight bearing in the water, the injured or de-conditioned client is able to return to desired activities quickly and safely.  Dave’s first hand success with “The Burdenko Method” after suffering a sprained knee inspired him to add this specialty to his list of credentials.  “After the first hour in the deep water, I was amazed at how significantly the swelling and range of motion improved” Dave recounted.

Many professional and Olympic athletes are now making “The Burdenko Method” part of their regular training programs, although it is for everyone.  If you are dealing with a nagging injury or just want some great exercises that are easy on your joints, Dave suggests you give this program a try.

The Burdenko Method will be offered on a private and semi-private basis.  Land based exercise programs have been added to the Bay Club’s Fitness Class schedule for the winter.  In addition, water based programs will be offered when the junior Olympic-size swimming pool opens in the summer.
