Three Tips To Help You Benefit From Golf Video InstructionWritten by Mike Pedersen
Continued from page 1
Usually you will end up with a huge volume of instruction and tips from golf video. It is therefore advisable to apply one at a time, rather than try to apply several and when you do not seem to get any result, you simply abandon everything. This is exactly what most golfers do. Be patient and apply tips one at a time. You will find that some do not work for you. Do not get discouraged, move to next one and patiently work your way through your entire list.
C) Combine you application of golf video instruction with a golf-specific exercise program. There are many things in golf which will be extremely difficult to apply to your game if you are not physically fit. Or at least golf-fit. Some techniques can even increase risk of injury if you are not involved in any golf exercise program. Ensuring that you are golf fit is a very important requirement for reaping maximum benefits from golf video instruction tapes.

Croquet - a historyWritten by Peter Jay
Continued from page 1
Croquet is more popular as a competitive sport outside of United States. It began to catch on more in United States again, in 1960’s. In 1969, first six wicket croquet tournament was held in at Colony Hotel in Palm Beach between New York Croquet Club and Palm Beach Croquet Club. Several other clubs eventually joined in, and once creating a uniformed code of rules, they established United States Croquet Association, under Jack Osborn. Since 1980, croquet professionals in North America have grown from about fifty to around 4000. Croquet is now played in over twenty countries as a competitive sport. National tournaments are held often within these countries, and international tournaments are held at international level. Many association and clubs have now been established in United States and international standards of croquet are being played more often by American croquet players. Most Americans, however, still play more simple and casual backyard, nine-wicket version of croquet. Many Americans also play “poison croquet,” which is similar to nine wicket croquet, but is not played in teams. Instead, each player competes for him/herself to see who can hit their ball through all of wickets first, making their ball “poison” and then eliminating other players by hitting their balls with poison ball.
