    I hit about 50 balls at the range the other day and I was sore for 2 days.

    I was thinking

    Deadlifts
    Broomsticks Twists
    Back Extesnions


    Anything else?

    Plus I don't want to be tired after 9. But last yr I was fat and out of shape, which probably was the reason for not being able to walk 18.

    probably heavy oblique work, PC work, abs, and some gigantic forearms so you can grip that club from swinging it so hard.

    I think that not playing golf is the best solution.

    I hit the 7 iron like 200 yards.

    I'm useless with any other club.

    you don't have to lose flexibility as you get bigger... most people do because they don't bother with good, frequent stretching.

    Weighted Clubs help a little. Broomstick twists you should do any way.
