Well, I didn’t play yesterday.

I am in the process of moving and all of the bending over, picking things up, putting them to the side, etc, etc, tired my back out and as I was warming up before the round, my back said no thank you.

The move should be done by Monday and hopefully I can get a few rounds in during the end of next week. Like I said, I just hope I can weasel it around for a decent score and have a month to prepare for stage two. Going to keep my expectations low, because that’s when you play decent after a long layoff.

    Reminds me of Kite. He was the best player in the world for a while. He picks up a bag and there goes the back and he never got back again. The point is he could have hired a bellman to take the bags. Seriously, I fought lower back problems for years. I lost 15 pounds and I stretch my hamstrings every day, and haven’t had a problem in over 10 years. But you know the answer.

    I’ve shoveled as much snow this winter as in all my earlier winters together. So an upcoming back X-ray will reveal the damage and necessary repair before I can have my first round of the year. Pity because a bucket at the range a couple of weeks ago, gave me some hope of a continued golfing future. Best impact feel ever! An earlier release seems to be my medicine for a healthier golf stroke.

    Monte, I whish you a good back recovery and a really nice comeback to competitive golf!

    When moving heavy objects, initiate the lift with the lower body.
