Myrtle Beach Golf During Covid-19

GOLF  DURING  COVID-19

 

Why Play Golf and How To Do It Safely During These Covid-19 Times

Golf for some is a get-a-way.  It is a release from a hectic week at work or from life’s demands.  It’s like an outdoor man’s cave, an escape from all of life’s pressures and worries.  A place you can go to block out the rest of the world, breathe in the fresh air, enjoy company of friends and forget about everything else.  It is your escape from reality.   The moment you step onto those greens, nothing else in life exists.  You are now in a new world… no stress, no worries, no woes.

Many people, during this time of Covid restrictions, are locked in the confines of their homes or work spaces with no way to release their frustrations and stress.  Golfers, however, have an escape.  The video above shows you “how” you can still get out and play the game safely, while the story below tells you “why” you can do it and how it can save your life; both physically and mentally.  Jaime Costanzo shares her story and how it has had a life-altering impact for her via PlayGolfMyrtleBeach.com .

 

How Golf  Saved Me In A Chaotic, Covid-19 World

By Jaime Costanzo

                                                                                      (photo credit: Playgolfmyrtlebeach.com)

 

2020 was a challenging year for most. Life as we know it was shut down and turned inside out. In March, I worked for the public school system in New Jersey that went from “all in” to “all out” in 12 hours. Shortly after that, the state shut down everything, and the only people on the roads were delivery trucks from online purchases at food stores and Amazon.

After two months of the shutdown, some states began to open their golf courses. Our neighboring state of New York was one of them. A group of us would drive more than 200 miles round trip to play golf.

Golf was the only thing we could, and wanted, to do. Why, you ask? Here’s why.

For most, golf helps to forget the hard stuff. It cures the pain. Where some people need alcohol or drugs, golfers need golf. Don’t get me wrong. A cocktail after the round helps to get past the bad shots and laugh it off. But that’s just a post-game component for some.

Your mind can only have one thought at a time. It is impossible to have two. We can juggle our thoughts and toggle between many, but only one idea at one time can take place in our brain. And golf is a fantastic sport to divert your attention from COVID-19 and other realities.

It starts with the smell and quiet sounds of the course. The freshly cut grass, birds singing, leaves rustling among the trees, and the small wildlife roaming the course. There are many lakes, streams, rivers, and oceans that reflect and frame the green grass and paint a surreal scenery. Many courses put you in a state of meditation. When standing to take my shot, I look at my surroundings, and I am thankful to see such beauty. As Ben Hogan once said in delivering my favorite quote, “As you walk down the fairway of life, you must smell the roses, for you only get to play one round.”

We then go to the actual art of playing the game. Golf is where our thoughts are focused on just golf, and not the outside world. We think about the target and what type of shot will get us there. We all have different ideas and thoughts on how to execute that, but we all have the same goal: to hit good shots and get the ball in the hole.

Some may argue this point, but all golfers are competitive. Whether you’re competing against others, against yourself and your lowest score, or the course, you are competitive. We always want to do better and achieve our personal best, which is a competitive thought process. My point is, playing “competitive” golf is an excellent diversion. It creates a hyper-focused action for 18 holes, and when it’s over, we want to do it all over again like an addiction.

Perhaps golf is an addiction that soothes the pain of reality.

Since the world of COVID-19 began and the stress it created, I’ve since been fortunate enough to be able to quit my job and move to Myrtle Beach, “The Golf Capital of the World.” I now play a minimum of three times per week, sometimes five. I play in groups from four to 164. We wear masks around the clubhouse and cart staging area and remove them once we get to the first tee. The pin stays in the hole, we touch our own equipment, and we no longer shake hands on 18.

I’ve endured this new world we now live in, and golf has been a great diversion and vehicle to afford me my sanity. Had I been the one to sit home and not change my thought process or way of life, I may be in a different place.

My advice, if you’ve never played the game:

Now is the time to learn.

 

Take Jaime’s advice.  Book your golf package now.

PGA Cancels 2022 Championship at Trumps Golf Course

PGA Cancels 2022 Championship scheduled to take place at Trumps Golf Course in New Jersey after recent mob events at the U.S. Capitol building.

The PGA of America Board of Directors voted Sunday night to terminate the agreement to play the 2022 PGA Championship at Trump Bedminster in New Jersey, Jim Richerson, the PGA of America president, announced.

This comes days after a mob of President Trump’s supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol building, causing damage and resulting in the deaths of five people.

Richerson said, “It’s become clear that conducting the PGA championship at Trump Bedminster would be detrimental to the PGA of America brand” and risks the organization’s ability to deliver on its programs and goals of promoting golf.

 

In a column posted on Saturday eveningGolfweek’s Eamon Lynch foresaw the PGA of America making a move regarding its 2022 PGA Championship, and sure enough…. on the Sunday night segment of the Golf Channel, Lynch said that Southern Hills Country Club in Tulsa and Liberty National Golf Club are now being considered by the PGA officials as a replacement.

No matter which property they choose, this decision severs all ties with Trump’s golf properties in the foreseeable future.

Myrtle Beach Welcomes “The Beast” Sean Fister

Myrtle Beach Welcomes

Sean “The Beast” Fister.

Sean Fister joins the team at Dustin Johnson’s Golf School in Murrells Inlet, SC

Sean “The Beast” Fister joins the Dustin Johnson Golf School after an illustrious career of competing in the World Long Drive Championships, which he did 33 times. He remains to this day the only American competitor to win the long drive world championship three times (1995, 2001 and 2005), and was the first-ever golfer to eclipse the 400-yard barrier in the finals of this event when he accomplished the feat in 1997. Sean is also the oldest competitor to win the World Long Drive Championships when he did so at 43 years, 4 months.

In addition to his aforementioned long drive achievements, Sean’s list of accolades also includes:

  • 13 RE/MAX World Championship records
  • 13 top 10 finishes in World Championships
  • Longest official drive 450 yards (twice; unofficial 515 yards)
  • Longest carry in a World Championship (394 yards; unofficial 466 yards)
  • Fastest recorded club head speed of 171.2 mph (extended club)
  • Fastest recorded ball speed of 218 mph
  • Author of “The Long Drive Bible,” a New York Times Best Seller
  • President at World Long Drive Hall of Fame
  • 2,000-plus exhibitions and appearances worldwide

Sean said:     “I have had my eye on Myrtle Beach for some time, and wanted to be where the action is in golf,” said Fister. “This was an opportunity that was simply too good to pass up. To be a part of such a great facility and team at the Dustin Johnson Golf School is a dream come true for me! I hope to make a positive impact in the community that is already ‘The Golf Capital of the World.’”

        “Everybody wants to hit the ball farther, but that sentence is incomplete,” said Fister. “They want to hit the ball farther, but they want to find the ball. What I can do is help with distance, and accurate distance.”

         “I will definitely find you some yards. There is no question about that,” said Fister. “But, these yards are going to come down the fairway. That’s what I do, and that’s what I am excited to do at the Dustin Johnson Golf School.”

Allen Terrell, 2020 Carolinas PGA Teacher of the Year, who also coaches the worlds top ranked golfer and most recent winner of The Masters, Dustin Johnson looks forward to having Sean Fister join his coaching staff at the Dustin Johnson Golf School.

         “Sean has traveled the world conducting more than 1,000 clinics for people to help improve their game. There is no one more qualified and experienced who can teach our golf clinics and schools,” said Terrell. “Sean has an incredible passion for helping people improve their game, and he is the perfect fit for our goal of adding more opportunities for golfers to improve.”

Fister is a coach in the Dustin Johnson Junior Golf Academy, which offers a developmental roadmap for young golfers ages 5-13 to introduce them to the game and hone their competitive skills along the journey. Terrell noted that Fister will also be leading a new series of teaching clinics at the Dustin Johnson Golf School, which will be scheduled and announced in the near future.

         “From its namesake to its staff, facility, and technology, the Dustin Johnson Golf School is a world-class operation. I can’t imagine a better opportunity for me to pursue my passion for sharing my knowledge to help golfers, from kids to seniors, improve their play in the game I love,” said Fister. “Having raised three kids of my own, I am especially passionate about helping young golfers learn to play a game that also comes with great life lessons that will serve them well beyond the golf course.”

Sean was inducted to the Long Drivers of America Hall of Fame in 2002, the Poplar Bluff Sports Hall of Fame in 2005 and Arkansas Golf Hall of Fame in 2008.
