Well it seems after a multi-year absence I am once again hooked on golf. I have been back playing for a few months now. You might not think that a 6-7 year hiatus would be that big a deal, but let me tell you, it was hell in the early going. While I am in very good shape for 48 years old, apparently I was not in very good "golf shape". After a week or so of hitting 75-100 balls a day on the driving range, I discovered aches in places I did not know existed. It was mostly relegated to the upper torso area as my legs are in most excellent shape from power walking and bike riding. I even pulled a muscle in my rib cage which necessitated a quick trip to the doctor for x-rays, and a diagnosis of "your getting old". I should explain that my doctor is a former triathlete who also thinks he's a comedian.
