Sorry guys

I started par-birdie-par and felt a really bad pull in my shoulder on the 4th tee. It took over an hour to play the first three holes and it was a 15 minute wait on 4.

When I hit my chip from just right of the green it didn’t feel too good.

I don’t think all that waiting helped me much. It’s a shame, I felt decent on the range.

I’m going to take a few weeks off and just teach. I need to get in shape. Between swinging at it hard the wrong way and not being in shape has just caused a rash of injuries. My swing is coming around, but I am in terrible shape and need to change that.

    Sorry to hear this. Rest up, get well, and come back stronger than ever. Best of luck.

    Right shoulder? What was wrong about the way you were swinging?

    Here’s some insight, which you can take or leave. I figured out my transition and figured out what it is for. It’s like a clutch. If you popped the clutch in your car every time you pulled away from a stoplight, it would be hard on the vehicle.

    The transition gets everything moving in a way that the big strong muscles can join in without jerking.

    Once I figured out what the transition was for, how it was done, and how to think about it, I could swing as hard as I want.

    Monte, don’t forget: you rock. All the best in all your endeavours.
