At the end of the 2016 golf season here in northern Utah I received the Tour Edge Exotics CB Pro U Hybrid Limited Edition for a review.  I posted a quick first look article right when it came in.

Because of my golfer’s elbow I couldn’t hit it until I changed the grip.  By the time I got the grip changed I had thrown out my back very badly and it took four weeks for me to recover.  By then the courses were closed and winter had come.  So I’ve been staring at this beautiful club all winter and spring.  The snow finally melted and my back is cooperating. It was hard to even consider hitting this beauty.  I thought it might be better to just put it on the wall as a show piece.  But I’ve now put it into play.

I’ve got a few rounds in the books with this hybrid and I think it is fantastic.  My full review of the CB Pro U Hybrid will be coming soon.  If it comes close to my Tour Edge Exotics XCG7 3-wood, the 2014 HOG Product of the Year, I’ll be thrilled.


First Aquatic Back Therapy Session in the Books

Yesterday I had my first in-water therapy session for my back.  I’m a little stiff today.  Following a recent MRI I was diagnosed with arthritis, narrowing of the gaps between the vertebrae and a couple of discs slightly bulging.  Somewhere in there a nerve pinches once in awhile and puts me down with massive back spasms and insane stabbing pain.

My latest back doc recommended aquatic therapy for the back, to strengthen my core and help relieve some pressure on the lower vertebrae.  It was an interesting session.  I was in a small pool with a moving floor.  The doc had me do core exercises like walking in the water, forward, backward, sideways.  He even turned on jets to provide more resistance.  I also did some kind of water weightlifting and resistance training.

At the end I did a relaxation session where I floated vertically to let gravity help the back loosen.  It was not a difficult session and I had to remind the doc that when my back isn’t tweaked, I’m pretty much 95% and no pain.  That said I can have some stiffness in the morning or after sitting for a while.  The doc told me I did great and can “take a lot more” than most people, so he will be working me harder in the next session.  Bring it on.

He also said if I tweak the back to call or text him and get in the water right away.  He says some water therapy can get rid of the spasms quickly.  I have my doubts on that, but the next time I tweak it I’ll be giving that a shot.

 


First Drink: BODYARMOR Sports Drink

My game is not at its best right now and I have my first real tournament of the year tomorrow, 8:10 a.m. No worries though. I’m going to put BodyArmor Sports Drink into play for the first time. I’m confident I’ll play well as a result!

BodyArmor Sports Drink

BodyArmor Sports Drink

This will be my first taste and performance testing of this new sports drink. Why do we need another sports drink? This one has no artificial flavors, no artificial colors, and no artificial sweeteners. BodyArmor provides electrolytes, coconut water*, vitamins, and nothing artificial.

*I don’t like coconuts so this could be interesting.

I’ll be drinking BodyArmor for a few rounds, then reporting back with my full review. Stay tuned.
