GOLFSTR+ was designed and manufactured by a golfer who was anxious to improve his game. That would be me, Will Curry. My distributors encouraged me to share my story with you. After all, I am an aging golfer with an aging body (just like you) who wants to avoid the problems that cause the occasional round over 100. My goal has always been to shoot every round in the 80’s and occasionally get into the 70’s. This seems to be the goal of every golfer I know.
I write these weekly blogs based on my experiences with friends, comments by professional PGA golfers and observations about successes and failures in golf. I have released 236 of these weekly blogs to build an awareness for GOLFSTR+ and to help me improve my game. The social awareness has helped me sell a lot of GOLFSTRs. If only I could apply every thought that I publish. I have my wonderful rounds but my consistency always needs work. My aging body, which is hitting another milestone on May 4, is constantly recovering from historic back injuries and strained muscles from too much tennis.
Again we wintered in Florida at a golf and tennis community where the weather was perfect and the comradery was wonderful. I was really looking for an excuse to share this amazing photo of Old Glory over our practice putting green. I’m not sure how the cloud was formed in a circle but it was an awesome moment when I looked up.
I work from Florida so I only have limited time for tennis and some golf. The golf course view from my office window was like watching the Golf Channel version of “Groundhog Day”. I watched the tee shots on a par 3 which has water on the left and trees up the right to a well trapped green. It was fun to see that only about 30% of the golfers hit and stayed on the green. About the same as my game.
About 70% of the female golfers had no idea of the concept of creating lag in their backswing. I guess the women don’t want their husbands telling them how to improve their game so they continue to swing with 2 straight arms in their backswing and hit their drives about 75 yards. The same problem applies to about 30% of the men. Aren’t these people taking lessons? At least they should be buying a GOLFSTR+ to help them train for wrist lag in their backswing. They just don’t understand the concept of creating lag with their wrists in the backswing to unleash the power of the club head through the ball. LAG, RELEASE, WHOOSH and BINGO for double the distance.
We golf to enjoy the exercise and friendships but each course has its own beauty. In Florida the course layouts through forests and ponds are spectacular. The wildlife is also an interesting addition. Sure there are plenty of birds but when you see a pelican grabbed from below by a lunging alligator and all that remains are floating feathers, you know that golfers should beware. After a few months of watching our friendly alligator (Herkimer) we heard that he was feasting on local cats and small dogs. His capture took 2 days as he broke the line from a 3 pronged fishing hook on their first try. I thought you might like to see the video of his capture on our front lawn.
I thought you might like this break for a week from your GOLFSTR+ SWING TIPS. I just wanted you to see that I’m like any other golfer who enjoys the game and all the fun that comes with it. I hope you are getting ready for your summer golf season by practicing with GOLFSTR+. Buy one for yourself or a friend, who may want to improve their game, at www.golfstr.com
