I just want to inform you all that I have now had the all clear from the Infectious Disease Clinic, so I’m free of the Tropical infection that I picked up in March.
I can now move forward and focus on getting back to where I was at the start of the year before this happened. I’m catching up with all my Team next week so I can now put a plan together to get back in the gym so I am fit and ready to start competing again. I have a few options over the winter but I just want to see how I get on over the next few weeks.
I have now sent off all my information to the European Tour and I’ve been told that they will be in contact with me at the end of November regarding my medical exemption application.
I would just like thank everyone for the kind words and messages over the last few months. I really can’t wait to get back competing and get back to my normal day to day living.
I really appreciate everyone’s continued support.
Best wishes in golf
Chesterfield Golf Club Tournament Professional, George Woolgar, has recently used innovative biomechanics techniques in his training regime to improve his game.
Biomechanics is an electromagnetic motion tracking system, using receivers and sensors attached to various body parts that distort the magnetic field generated and collect data. The entire process takes around 10 minutes and gives valuable feedback to golfing professionals and their coaches. The system reports exactly what the professional is doing and leads them towards a more efficient body motion for a repeatable and powerful golf swing.
The session was booked with Dr Robert Neal, one of the leaders of biomechanics in the world, at the Styal Golf Club in Cheshire. The focus was to facilitate efficient body motion throughout the golf swing and to highlight any physical issues. This then allows the golfer to improve in order to assist in the technical progress relating to posture, flexibility, stability, strength and power. Taking characteristics and abilities into consideration, the system uncovers the most efficient swing for the individual golfer.
George Woolgar said about the session: “The most useful thing for me was the data produced from the transition of the downswing timings and sequences and how easily they were identified. The report gives you suggestions as to the important technical faults to address and also gives biofeedback. The lesson was really helpful and now I can work with my swing coach, Steve Astle, and put a winter plan together to make my game more efficient.”
