THIS COULD SAVE YOUR LIFE!


Correct time to drink water... Very Important. From A Cardiac Specialist!
Drinking water at a certain time maximizes its effectiveness on the body: 2 glasses of water after waking up - helps activate internal organs
1 glass of water 30 minutes before a meal - helps digestion
1 glass of water before taking a bath - helps lower blood pressure

1 glass of water before going to bed - avoids stroke or heart attack
Most heart attacks occur in the day, generally between 6am and noon. Having one during the night, when the heart should be most at rest, means that something unusual happened.
1. If you take an aspirin or a baby aspirin once a day, take it at night.The reason: Aspirin has a 24-hour "half-life"; therefore, if most heart attacks happen in the wee hours of the morning, the Aspirin would be strongest in your system.

2. FYI, Aspirin lasts a really long time in your medicine chest for years,
(when it gets old, it smells like vinegar).

Please read on....
Something that we can do to help ourselves - nice to know.
Bayer is making crystal aspirin to dissolve instantly on the tongue.
They work much faster than the tablets.

Why keep Aspirin by your bedside? It's about Heart Attacks -
There are other symptoms of a heart attack, besides the pain on the left arm. One must also be aware of an intense pain on the chin, as well as nausea and lots of sweating; however, these symptoms may also occur less frequently.

Note: There may be NO pain in the chest during a heart attack.

The majority of people (about 60%) who had a heart attack during their sleep did not wake up. However, if it occurs, the chest pain may wake you up from your deep sleep.

If that happens, immediately dissolve two aspirins in your mouth and swallow them with a bit of water.

Afterwards: - Call 112- Phone a neighbour or a family member who lives very close by.
- Say "heart attack!" - Say that you have taken 2 Aspirins. - Take a seat on a chair or sofa near the front door, and wait for their arrival and ....DO NOT LIE DOWN!

MICK THE GRIP'S DAILY QUIP. NO. 5.

If you watch a game, it's fun.  If you play it, it's recreation.  If you work at it, it's golf.     Bob Hope.

MICK THE GRIP'S DAILY QUIP No. 4.

Golf is a game in which a ball - one and a half inches in diameter - is placed on a ball - 8000 miles in diameter.  The object being to hit the small ball, but not the larger.      John Cunningham.

QUIP 2

Golf is like a love affair.  If you don't take it seriously, it's no fun, if you do take it seriously, it breaks your heart.      Arnold Daly.

March Article. Enjoy


       IN THE BUNKER WITH MICK THE GRIP

                  A HUMAN HOLE IN ONE?  Golfer Mark Mihal was waiting on the fairway to play his shot at Annbriar Golf Course Illinois when he suddenly disappeared from view.  His three fellow golfers immediately rushed over to the spot where he had been standing to see what had happened to him.  They found that an 18ft deep sinkhole had opened up and swallowed him whole.  The city of St. Louis sits on limestone that tends to dissolve in rainwater, and sinkholes are fairly common.  They are however, usually visible.   Mihal, 43, who suffered a dislocated shoulder, said it has not put him off golf, but he might try a different course.

BRITAIN’S CHRIS WOOD, 25, managed an eagle on the final hole to win the Qatar Masters and his first European Tour title.  Wood, who finished in the top five in the 2008 Open, began his last round at Doha with a three shot cushion, but stumbled to trail Sergio Garcia and S. Africa’s George Coetzee by one shot after 17. He then sent a huge drive down the 18th fairway followed by a 5 iron to 12 feet and sank the putt to win by a single stroke.  “I knew it would be hard,” he admitted,  “They get a great field in these desert events, so this means a lot of world ranking points for me.”


AUGUSTA IS LOOMING.  A little bit of background history:  The course was designed by Alister Mackenzie, who worked with Harry Colt on courses in Great Britain before emigrating to the U.S. in the early 1920s.  As well as Augusta, Mackenzie designed Cypress Point in California and Royal Melbourne in Australia. All three are considered among the world's very best golf courses.

The tradition of the Green Jacket dates to 1937. Club members wore the single breasted ‘Masters Green’ jackets during the tournament so that spectators could easily spot them if they needed information. The Augusta National club logo appears on the breast pocket and the brass buttons.  The winner of the Masters takes the Green Jacket home with him and keeps it for a year, then he returns it to the club, but the jacket is still considered ‘his ’and he is allowed to wear it whenever he visits.   Augusta National membership is by invitation only. When a membership slot opens, the club decides who to invite and mails the invitation. 

STEVE STRICKER, who finished two strokes behind Tiger at the WGC Cadillac this month, may have regretted spending 45 minutes on the putting green with him the day before, helping him with his posture.  Woods went on to win and claim his 76th PGA Tour win.   He did thank Steve for his advice. 
For the first time in five years, Woods has two wins before the Masters.  He will be aiming to update his green jacket collection to five, one behind Jack Nicklaus. He could also return to World No. 1 with a win at Bay Hill in the Arnold Palmer Invitational this weekend.
RORY MCILROY was 10 under par in the last 27 holes at the WGC Cadillac, with a 65 on the Sunday which included an eagle and five birdies.  He tied for ninth place.  His only tournament now before the Masters will be the Shell Houston Open, on March 28th.  If he can forget his girlfriend and his wisdom teeth and remember his watch he should be worth a bet at Augusta.
Phil Mickelson has three green jackets, and would love a fourth.  Brandt Snedeker must be a good bet at 22-1 if his ribs have recovered. It would be great to see any of our brave boys in the winners enclosure but whether it’s won by a favourite or an outsider The Masters will be as always, unmissable.

Until next time, happy golfing.

Golf is a game whose aim is to hit a very small ball into an even smaller hole, with weapons singularly ill-designed for the purpose.  Sir Winston Churchill.
