Sit less, Swing Better Restore the Rhythm

Article by: Judy Alverez - First Tee

Is your swing feeling stiff? Are you sitting for several hours a day? Your shoulders could be part of the problem. The anatomical term for your shoulder blades is “scapulae”. Your upper arm bone – the humerus – connects to your scapula. They work together to help you make a full shoulder rotation and swing on plane. This interaction is called “scapulohumeral rhythm”.

Sitting too much messes with this rhythm because it pulls your shoulders forward, disrupting the scapula muscles, causing them to tilt and become unstable. When this happens, your golf swing will be restricted and you may experience pain at your shoulder blades.

20 Sept Crane Watch

Our chapter conducted camps all summer at Crane Watch Club in Palm City.
Coach Bo Batchelor along with several volunteers, offered golf classes daily Monday - Friday to 95 students.
During the camp, students were introduced to playing the game of golf through fun and competitive games which had an emphasis on learning The First Tee Code of Conduct, Nine Core Values, golf skills and healthy habits, as well as appreciating the etiquette and rules of the game of golf.
Camps included daily warmups, golf specific workouts, skill focused drills, one on one instruction, and competitive games. Students braved the heat all summer, and a great time was had by all participants.

Fort Pierce Sunrise Kiwanis, 29th Annual Golf Tournament

Article & Photos by MaryAnn Ketcham

The early 'birdies' of Fort Pierce Sunrise Kiwanis recently hosted their 29th Annual Shoot Out Golf Tournament at the Indian Hills Golf Course in Fort Pierce. Eighty-four golfers received warm welcomes from the balmy morning air, the course's friendly, attentive staff, and Kiwanians excited to finally get the golf balls rolling after a five-month postponement resulting from COVID 19.

Fort Pierce City Commissioners Tom Perona and Jeremiah Johnson joined in the festivities as did recently retired Dr. Edwin Massey, IRSC President of 31 years!

Over thirty sponsors joined corporate sponsor Remnant Construction, and event sponsors Lott Insurance, The Law Firm of Hoskins, Turco, Lloyd & Lloyd, and long-time sponsor OCI Consulting Engineers the fundraiser's success.

John Barbieri, the organization's president, said, "I am so grateful for all of the wonderful sponsors and the players. I set a goal of $10,000 and, because of everyone's generosity, we achieved that goal!"

Event proceeds benefit St. Lucie County Youth Programs such as the WPSL Christmas Kids Program, St. Lucie County Fair's Education Exhibits, Fort Pierce Main Street Christmas Parade, Key Clubs at Lincoln Park Academy, Fort Pierce Central, and Westwood High Schools, plus many additional programs.

Following competitive course play, the traditional post-golf lunch was served outdoors under a large tent in keeping with the recommended social distancing protocol. Participants delighted in the freshly prepared bottomless pot of Cajun Jambalaya cooked up by Kiwanian Frankie Lott.

Traditionally, Fort Pierce Sunrise Kiwanis meetings take place every Thursday at 7:30 am upstairs at Cobbs Landing located at 200 N. Indian River Drive in Fort Pierce. Due to the pandemic, meetings are sometimes virtual and sometimes held in the large cafeteria at IRSC. They are slowly transitioning back home to Cobbs and their routine of hearty breakfasts, exciting guest speakers, and lively discussions.

Be on the lookout for Fort Pierce Sunrise Kiwanis' Farm City Barbeque event, details to be announced soon.

BIRTHDAY COMING UP? PLEASE SUPPORT JUNIOR GOLF

20 Sept First Tee Logo
20 Aug Birthday

South Florida golfers have no doubt taken notice of the "Golf Capital of the World" license plate proudly displayed on thousands of local automobiles. Many golfers do not know that the benefitting charity of this license plate is junior golf.

Created in 2002 by the Dade Amateur Golf Association, the Florida Junior Golf Council was formed for the benefit of Florida's junior golf programs. Through the efforts of the late Charlie DeLucca, the "Golf Capital of the World" license plate was passed into law by the Florida legislature and Governor Jeb Bush. All revenue generated supports junior golf programs. To date, over $8.7 million has been distributed to support junior golf.

The FJGC license plate grant program is designed to assist organizations that introduce young people to golf, through instruction and competition, teach the values and Rules of Golf, stress integrity, courtesy, self-discipline, and other life skills. Additionally, the grant program assists junior golf organizations that serve economically disadvantaged youth, children with special needs and the general population. The FJGC is planning to significantly increase the size of grants for the next year because of the impact of COVID-19 on junior golf programs.

"We are now seeing that junior golf programs have to offer smaller class sizes, pay for more coaches to ensure safety and spend unbudgeted funds on thermometers, sanitizer, masks and gloves," said Charlie DeLucca III, Executive Director of the First Tee of Miami and board member of the FJGC. "After speaking with several junior program executive directors and administrators it became obvious that the FJGC needed to step in and assist these important programs.

All Florida golfers recognize the license plate, but many do not understand the incredible impact it has on junior golf. (Pictured above: Chapter Executive Director Carl Mistretta with one of his two FJGC license plates.)

The easiest way to purchase the license plate is during your birthday month by renewing your tag registration. The plate can be purchased online or in person at the office of the tax collector or tag agency. And HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
