Golf Clubs Packed & Ready To Go

Well, I am counting the days until our trip to Florida! I packed my clubs in their travel case last night. I can hardly wait to leave the cold weather behind. The high temperatures here this weekend are predicted to be 10 and 7. We have been looking at tee times in Florida and are getting ready to book them. It seems unfathomable that we could be wearing shorts and golfing in a short time! I am planning on writing reviews for most of the courses we play while in Florida. I will be posting them here when we get home. I sure wish we were there right now!

Still Too Cold!

Today is a balmy 30 degrees and gray. I talked with a friend who was visiting Florida and she said it was 77 and sunny. I really didn't want to talk to her after that! Staying in good physical condition during the winter in Michigan can be quite a challenge. I get so bored going to the driving range that after awhile, I just give up.

A friend of mine recommended Roger Fredericks' Golf Flexibilty DVD's so I ordered them. Here is the website for them:

I found that 90% of the exercises were yoga postures that were slightly altered for the golf swing. I enjoy doing them but Fredericks isn't the most motivational coach I've ever had. If you have never done yoga before, take it easy in the beginning. These stretches can be intense without you ever knowing it. Don't ever stretch until you feel pain! Stop and go back an inch or two. Breathing out and releasing are the only way to get more stretch.
I think that these exercises can be very beneficial to the golf swing if done consistently. Which I guess is true of any exercise! It's just getting out from under the down comforter to do them!

Wonderful Women's Golf Store

I have been debating whether to share this great golf store site with anyone. I admit I wanted to keep it my little secret. During my travels on the internet, I found Lori's Golf Shoppe.
I was like a kid in a candy store the first time I looked through what Lori had available. These are women's items you won't see at your local pro shop. Well, maybe some of them but not the selection that is offered here. I probably will never buy some of the expensive items shown but, jeez, I love to look at them!

Is this not one sharp golf bag? It is priced at $299.99 which is a little higher than I'd like to pay.

But then how about this cutie for only $99.99? This is the one my husband got for me for Christmas. He was happy he didn't have to shop for me!

For all you Pink Ribbon girls, there is a Pink Shoppe. There are also tons of great clearance deals on shoes, gloves, bags, etc. Great jewelry, too! I ordered these socks for a Christmas present. They say "Mulligan Queen" on the top! I don't know where Lori finds these items but I am impressed.

The prices are very reasonable. Also, Lori has generously offered anyone who orders through my site a special one time discount of 20% which can be used now through December 31, 2007. When ordering, you will need to enter Coupon Code SL011906. What a nice deal! She usually has regular ongoing discounts available on her Storefront page, too.

So now you know my favorite place for adorable women's golf items. I know you will not be disappointed by what you find there. Please don't blame me when your credit card bill comes due but do come back here and tell me about all the compliments you get on your cute golf stuff!

Lori was nice enough to give me permission to post her website and give us a discount. Thanks, Lori!
