It’s kind of funny because before I was 17, I was incredibly skinny. I was made fun of and called “chicken” and “chicken wings” I was super tall and probably weighed 30 pounds less than I do now. Then I gained weight because my metabolism slowed down, and I kind of was on the other end of the spectrum.
Jumping Rope AnywhereGrab a pair of ropes and keep them in your training bag. Bring it everywhere you go. Anytime you have a break period, skip some ropes. Pawel uses small but very expensive cameras that shoot in ultra high definition called ‘5K’. Yep, that’s 5K. It’s even better than HD.
Both were ante post wagers for a few weeks hence but, unfortunately, one of those slips has already been ripped up and tossed in the bin. It followed the tragic death a fortnight ago of racehorse Darlan, favourite for the Champion Hurdle at next month’s Cheltenham Festival.For some unbeknown reason, I’d completely forgotten to factor in the significant change McIlroy had made since ending last season in almost unstoppable form by starting his 2013 campaign with a full set well, once anyway of new clubs in his bag.In short, the world No1’s first outing for Nike was a disaster, not just because he missed the cut in last month’s HSBC Abu Dhabi Championship but more so for the fact his body language after almost every shot was akin to a cry of anguish.One of the puzzling things about McIlroy appearing in that Middle East event so early in the year was that he was then taking the next three weeks off, though having upset HSBC when he didn’t play in the WGC Champions event in China towards the end of last season all credit to the 23 year old if he did so to avoid further criticism of his scheduling.There’s simply no defending him, though, for his decision, after just one round with his shiny equipment, to put his old Scotty Cameron putter back in the bag for day two. Sorry, no matter what the contract says and it’s common practice for players to have a clause that allows them to use a couple of clubs of their choice, that didn’t send out a positive message at the start of a relationship that is making him a rich young man.Now, as McIlroy prepares for take (or should that be tick) two and he’ll have whacked a fair few balls over the last three weeks in order to get a better feel of that new equipment, the irony, of course, is that he could be sent packing after just one round this time.There are no second chances in the WGC Accenture Match Play Championship, which starts tomorrow at Dove Mountain in Arizona.
