President’s Message – 2/23/2024

RUMORS YOU SHOULD LISTEN TO…

From your STMA President

I know that it has been a while since I have sent out a President’s Message and I apologize for that.  The Christmas holidays and some health issues that I am working through have taken up most of my time. The good news is that your STMA Board has continued to function properly and we have set the course for great things in 2024.   You have a great team representing you on the Board.

Not sure that all of you are aware but I had complete reverse shoulder replacement surgery in January.  I am now four weeks into recovery and, so far, things are on schedule for me to be back on our courses in the Spring.  I mention this because I have a story to tell you about a new addition for ALL of us golfers so, please bear with me.

When I started my physical therapy, I walked into the PT facility and there were four other Sea Trail residents in the facility recovering from shoulder, knee or other procedures.  All of them were golfers and I surmised that after completing their PT they would all need help building their golf swing back.  Now, this was four Sea Trail residents there in just the hour that I was there.  How many more are going thru some type of PT there or somewhere else every week??

That same night, I was asked to approve the purchase of a new exercise bike for our fitness gym to replace one that was at the end of its life.  That bike was over $3,000.  I approved the purchase but that got me to thinking, why don’t we have some equipment onsite that focuses on golf specifically.  I mean, we live in a golf resort, don’t we?  The equipment in our gym is great and a lot of people use it, but I don’t believe that there is any equipment in that gym specifically designed for golfers, recovering or not.

So, I started my search for a swing trainer that would/could help all of us recovering golfers and also help current golfers improve their swing and tempo.  After doing my research I found that there are several golf swing trainers that are available in the marketplace.  I came to the conclusion that the EXPLANAR Golf Swing Ring Trainer seemed to be the best one out there to help with your swing plane and speed.  I went to our STMA Board and asked them to buy one for Sea Trail.  The board approved the purchase unanimously.  We ordered it and this past weekend it was delivered.  I asked a couple of friends of mine to help me put it together.  Currently, it is in the Multi-Purpose room in the Creekside building.  Not sure that this will be its permanent place but it fits there for now, over in one corner.

It came with two rollers to use on the swing ring, the longer one representing a drive thru 5 iron and the shorter one representing 6 iron thru pitch.  Before you use it, please visit our website or click on this link to review how to use it safely:

I hope that all of our current golfers, recovering or just looking to improve their swing and/or tempo check it out.  Note:  When you do go check it out, if there is an exercise class going on in that room, PLEASE don’t interrupt them, they are only there for an hour or so. If you want to check out the availability of the room beforehand, call Debbie Cornell in the CAMS office.  She can let you know.
Also, just a simple reminder, I have been asked by our access committee to remind folks that if you have a room reserved and find out that you don’t need it, please cancel your reservation so that others may use it if they want to.

Take care and see you on the course soon, I hope!

Steve Miller, STMA President
