A Note From The Tee,
I am a firm believer in everything happens for a reason. In 2009 I got a call from Kevin McGovern about taking a golf lesson. I recognized the name as I’d seen pamphlets in the Ferncroft Country Club gym with information about his physical therapy practice. He was primarily self-taught, but his handicap was climbing and had gone from a 5 to a 7.
We met for the lesson and very quickly I realized that we were going to work well together. Just a couple of suggestions and he was hitting the ball better. As I related some of his swing issues to his range of motion and compensations that were taking place, we both had an “aha” moment. Not only was he surprised at my knowledge of the human body and functional movement but how it impacted the success of the lesson. I mentioned to him that years before, I had worked in conjunction with a physical therapist at the New England Baptist Hospital. We created a program to get patients back to golf safely after orthopedic surgeries. With that, the wheels started turning. We should do something together!
Flash Forward to Now…
I am excited to say that Kevin and I will be working together over the next few months to create a program for the fall/winter. We will also be exchanging ideas and sharing educational material to all of our client base to help you play better golf and stay healthy. If you’ve never visited his site, I encourage you to click here and take a peak. And feel free to join his mailing list. His newsletters are full of great information about staying healthy and feeling better. I’m looking forward to working with Kevin to create great programs for golfers of all ability levels. We’ll be moving and grooving better than ever and in the process, take a few shots off the handicap! Oh, and I’m sure he’d want you to know that his handicap is back to a 5 and trending down…Go Kevin!
