Golf Sets Doping Policy on Steroids?!?

Friday, September 21st, 2007

This is kinda funny that pro-golfers have to use steroids!?! Well, I’d let them use it since steroids probably messes up your game more than it helps especially under those high pressure situations where you gotta sink a 2-footer to win. How’s steroid going to help you in that case? Maybe you will hit it with more confidence? LOL

The issue of steroids has finally reached the golf world. On the same day that American Floyd Landis was banned for doping and stripped of his 2006 Tour de France Title, several golf organizations signed an anti-doping policy. The policy comes after weeks of speculation of when professional golf would start taking the same steps that other professional sports were taking in tackling the problem of steroids.

Today’s swing – The 7-iron 165 yard “Knock-down” Shot

It’s a nice little knockdown, my swing looks horrible by the way… but a great little tool for those pressure situations.

A knock-down-shot is basically a slightly shorter backswing and shorter follow-through for distance and arc control.

Arc is the arc of the golf ball. Basically, a knock-down-shot is a knock down because the arc will be much lower than a regular full shot.

But if you can hit this shot well, it’s really easy to hit all the time…

Anyone up for $100 a hole?
