Jun 28th

The inevitable “mid-life crisis,” even if it happens to occur when reaching the ripe old age of 30 is the subject of the 2004 comedy, 29 and Holding.

Two friends, Mike and Jeff, have reached the dreaded “Three-0”, and are faced with some tough decisions. Mike would like nothing more than to spend his life on the golf course while Jeff, the romantic, desperately seeks out love to find fulfilment. Mike HAS love, but his girlfriend wants him to “grow up” and become an adult, and threatens to leave him if he doesn’t comply. (source)

Familiar, yet necessary situations visit both friends as they struggle with the happenings swirling around them, making them long for the “good old days.” Viewers will no doubt recognize the scenario and sympathize.

Cast: Jad Davis, Morgan Simpson and David Paladino star in this light-hearted comedy.

Golf Books #74 (Golf’s Golden Rule: What Every Pro Does Instinctively . . . And You Don’t)

The ultimate golf manual from world-renowned coaches—discover the impact zone and transform your swing

The different elements of a good golf swing—the impact zone, backswing, and finish—are analysed in this practical, in-depth guide. The impact zone, an area measuring a couple of feet before the ball and a couple after it, is what good golf is all about.

As such, it should be studied, practised, and trained more than anything else, yet it isn’t. Hundreds of instruction manuals and DVDs fail to deal with it in any real sense, but impact should not be left as a blur. Impact is the precise moment that decides where the ball will go, at what trajectory, and at what speed.

Here, two experienced coaches reveal the secrets that every golf pro knows instinctively, but that modern teaching has nearly forgotten about. The most up-to-date golf manual focusing on impact in detail as the key part to perfecting a good swing, this book will revolutionize your game.
