The Bat is in the zone

Six days ago I threw my back out.  Last time I threw it out, it took two weeks for the pain and spasms to subside and my game was a wreck when I came back.

This week I tried my new inversion table (where you hang upside down like a bat) for the first time, and I’m back on the course already (yesterday) and in the ZONE.  I really only felt pain for the first 1-2 days this time, compared to 13-14 last time.  I really hope the decompression of the spine on the inversion table is the answer to the back problems…

Yesterday I played 11 holes and shot -3.  I had 5 birdies, two on the last two holes.  Then today I picked up right where I left off.  I played the back nine again.  I started out birdie, birdie, par, birdie, birdie.  At that point I’d had NINE BIRDIES IN 16 HOLES!  By the time I finished #15 and my eighteenth consecutive hole, I was at -7 for that stretch.  I ended up -5 for my last 20 holes.

Winter is coming.  In fact, it may have arrived on #16 today.  It was warm earlier but the winds kicked up and it got cold, fast.  Very cold.

I’ll have more info on the inversion table and what it is about, and hopefully many more birdies to brag about soon.

    Be sure to take some pics of yourself “hanging around.”

    Geez…seems like I remember someone leaving a comment to try this out…not that I saved your back or your game or anything…

    Glad your back is feeling better, good to know that actually works.
