Member, Stewart Hagestad, Wins Low Amateur Award at the Masters

On Friday, GBNYC Member, Stewart Hagestad, became the first winner of the U.S. Mid-Amateur to make the cut at the Masters. Two days later, he put the finishing touches on final round 73 and tied for 36th place at 6 over par to collect the silver cup that goes to the low amateur.

On Thursday, April 13th, the Wall Street Journal wrote about Hagestad, stating, "During the day, Hagestad helped put valuations on commercial properties. Most weeknights, Hagestad would head to Golf & Body NYC... He spent hours there, trainers at the club said—a routine in the weight room, putting on a turf green, practicing drives in a simulator—sometimes closing the club on weeknights at 10pm."

Member, Stewart Hagestad, Preps for the Masters Tournament

GBNYC member, Stewart Hagestad, the 2016 U.S. Mid-Amateur Golf Championship winner, is preparing for the upcoming Masters Tournament. In an interview with the Metropolitan Golf Association (MGA), Stew was asked "What has your recent preparation looked like?"

Stew replied, "For the most part, it hasn't changed from any other event. There has been slightly more emphasis on short game practice, but as far as general preparation, I consider myself dedicated to putting in the work necessary to have the opportunity to play great."

The team at Golf & Body NYC can attest to the work Stew has put in to keep his game at its peak through practice, training and conditioning -- on the greens, in the simulator and in the gym. A true testament to the Golf & Body experience!

We are now fully into off-season at Golf & Body NYC! As you get your game ready for 2017, you need to make sure that you are taking care of your body.

There are many ways to avoid getting elbow pain including proper strengthening exercises and stretches, and incorporating routine soft-tissue massage. Our staff can show you the appropriate things to do to prevent and treat elbow injuries. Also, remember you can always tee the ball up to avoid the impact of the mat using a small tee for irons.

Nutritionist, Ariane Hundt, Featured in Golf Digest

Along with your new year resolutions to get better at golf, practice more and be healthier, there is no better time than to rethink what you eat while playing a round. GBNYC nutritionist, Ariane Hundt was recently featured in Golf Digest to give tips on "7 healthy golf course snacks" instead of the typical granola bar in your bag or grabbing a hot dog at the halfway house. 

Ariane suggests, “When out on the course, sugar will crash you within a short period of consumption, so stick with the low-carb, higher-protein options to keep your energy up for hours.” Easy enough. Read more by clicking here!
