Mountain bike a lot. Running as well but much less. Trying to stretch and do exercises based only using my own body weight. Not into weight lifting.

I would sure as hell drink a John Daly before I'd touch an Arnold Palmer.

Healthy eating, completely changed what i eat and lost 77 lbs in 12 months...about another 40 lbs should get me to where I need to be....
If you don't mind, what changes did you make regarding your eating habits?

I used to eat anything and everything. I was feeling ill and as it turns out had massively high blood pressure. I have cut out all the crap. I eat unlimited amounts of meat, fish, eggs, fruit and veg. A fair amount of potatoes/pasta and rice but if I find the weight isn't coming off I reduce the carbs. No alcohol, all soft drinks are sugar free but I still have 2 sugars in my tea and I have about 6 cups a day.

No bread, No cheese and the only milk I have is in my tea and on cereal for breakfast.

For snacks I always have cold meats, crab sticks, pickled onions and cottage cheese in the fridge...

I'm pretty tough on myself until I get to where I need to be then I will be a bit more flexible but keep an eye on my weight, never going back to being that fat again!

Funny thing is that I ran into my old trainer in my bodybuilding days last Saturday, he got me motivated again, so, today I am back in training mode, not competing but at least back to where I can feel more comfortable, since my accident in Baghdad I have not been a gym rat, my golf game has improved drastically (which is great), but when I was hitting the gym for bodybuilding my game went to crap, so he will have a new training routine that will allow me to keep my flexibility and regain my muscle mass...can't wait!!!!

I recently found out the issues I fight with my swing are due to poor interior hip flexibility, so I am making that my main priority at the gym.  Makes one wonder if a swing issue you think needs fixing at the range really needs fixing at the gym first.

I agree, but I also wonder if it's not necessarily that it needs to be fixed at the gym, but rather that the gym helps to reduce the repetition needed to make a swing change.  As you try to introduce a new technical concept into your swing, the theory is that repetition allows your mind  to ingrain the change.  But repetition of a new move also seems to be a form of dynamic stretching.  So over time your muscles actually stretch/strengthen themselves to more efficiently make that move.  If that's the case, it would make sense that improving that at the gym would just help to expedite a swing change -- especially if you are only seeing incremental progress with the swing change.

I was fighting an early extension problem for the entire season with little success.  After working with a golf fitness guy (TPI certified) for a few weeks, that early extension problem has basically gone away and we are moving on to bigger and better things to address in my swing.  He's really been focused on the concept of disassociation -- namely being able to move muscles independently of each other.  When we first started working together, he would ask me to "move X".  I would do it.  Then he would ask me to "move X without moving Y" and I couldn't do it.  After a few weeks of doing the prescribed stretches and exercises, I was able to do it (or at least increase my range of motion before Y would move) and it was a lot easier to get into the positions I needed to at full speed.  As a result my ball striking improved despite hitting a LOT fewer balls per week than I did this past summer.

I have a very similar issue and the coach i started working with provided a range of exercises. I have been doing side steps & "monster walks" with the elastic/ rubber bands around my ankles or lower legs and lying down side leg raises. Also have been doing some disassociation drills, can openers, 90* twisting box jumps, clam shells. I have seen more improvement in the past 6 months using these exercises then i did in the past 3 years combined. I can so much more easily get into my right side without a sway or any sort of forced movement.

I have always been in very good shape, but the last couple years towards the end of my college career and first year out of college I got a little bit out of shape, had an injury, and lost some athleticism. The last few months I have been getting back into a little bit of weight lifting: kettle bell swings, stiff legged deadlifts (light weight), shoulder press, rows, curls. Additionally, playing racquetball (great for agility), and doing lots of core and some stretching. Everything I do is tailored towards getting my lower back healed, after herniating a disk/disc in may.  

Any advice on gaining flexibility in hips, and legs would be great!

With an old friend, we each did four 25 oz curls of Sapporo which we topped with a sashimi appetizer, four seriously good rolls (TNT, Volcano, Lady Gaga, & Mango Dragon) then finished with an enormous omikasi plate of sashimi - we needed a lot of protein so the muscles could recover from the curls.
