Helping Players Prepare for the Blue Bombers Golf Tournament

The Blue Bombers Golf Tournament is a yearly event that gives you the opportunity to play along with the best of the bombers in a game of golf. By participating, amateurs can test their skills against the pros and have a little fun in the process. The event is a much anticipated each summer and this year will take place on August 28th, 2017.

Players who want to participate in the Blue Bombers Golf Tournament can register online for the event held at the Southwood Golf and Country Club. Lunch and registration will begin promptly as 11:00 am with the shotgun start scheduled for 12:00 pm sharp. A reception will follow the event at 6:00 pm.

For the last 25 years, Academy Massage has participated in the Blue Bomber Golf Tournament, providing therapists on hand to ensure all players are ready for the game. Golf can be rough on the muscles with each swing, so our therapists work hard to ensure both team members, as well as golf players, are ready to swing the club.

Therapists of Academy Massage demonstrate stretching to players and Bomber team members to ensure that the golf tournament is injury free. It can be easy to pull or strain a muscle without proper stretching. The football players know the importance of stretching before every game and are more than willing to work with our therapists to ensure the proper stretching is completed for the upcoming golf game.

It is recommended that players warm up for five to ten minutes before stretching for the golf game. This can be walking around the golf tee or running in place for a short period of time. A more fluid golf swing will be produced with adequate stretching. You want to stretch the muscles of the legs, back, and arms to be ready to swing the club at each tee.

We use simple stretches that anyone can do and show each technique to newbies to ensure the game of golf will run smooth. Our therapists at Academy Massage are participating this year as well and look forward to assisting players of the Bombers as well as amateurs with stretching to ensure a quality game.
