At the age of 28 I had my first child, a big, strong, beautiful boy, Johnny. The pregnancy had been normal, uneventful, and the birth, following an easy, quick labor, also uneventful. There was no reason to expect anything different with a second pregnancy. But it was different. Within 2 months I had a small hemorrhage. By the time the baby was born I had had 4 or 5 more. The baby, a girl, was born at 26 weeks, so small the doctor could hold her in his hands. At first I worked just to get her going day by day, a monumental task. Later it was to assure her of a place in regular public school classes and a life as normal as possible. But I also found myself fighting for a more normal life for other handicapped youngsters and later for all handicapped individuals. Handicap Advocacy became my life's work, albeit unpaid. I chaired a county task force on the Needs of the Handicapped; I was the chairperson for my county's Committee on Employment of the Disabled Persons and organized yearly one-day seminars for employers at the state university; I set up an all-day job fair which involved everybody in the county who had anything to do with disabled individuals, from the county executive to all the non-profit agencies working with those same persons. I begged and borrowed from everywhere and everybody who might help. It was a fantastic success. We had disabled persons who had PhD's and those who were seriously retarded and everything in between. In 1996 I received the Cory Moore Award for my efforts on behalf of disabled persons, and in 1999 I was named one of the Most Outstanding Senior Citizens in the state of Maryland. Best of all I have had a wonderful daughter, and a life full of challenging and rewarding work, and I have grown.

How to Drop Five Strokes without Having One

'Ten years ago I could easily have cleared that pond.' 'I'm okay until about the fourteenth hole; then I can feel myself getting tired.' 'I've had to shorten my backswing; otherwise, my old back will keep me up all night.' Sound familiar? As much as we may hate to admit it, at sixty-plus we're different from younger golfers both physically and mentally. While this isn't necessarily bad, it does impact how we play. In How to Drop Five Strokes without Having One, author Dr. John D. Drake explains how awareness of these changes can allow us to adapt; we can still lower our scores and get more fun from our favorite pastime. Drake offers specific techniques and strategies geared toward seniors that can be readily adapted to every facet of your golf game-tee box, fairway, bunker, and green. How to Drop Five Strokes without Having One provides not only easy-to-apply suggestions for lower golf scores, but also tips on how to reduce anxiety and tension. With photos included, How to Drop Five Strokes without Having One helps solve the unique problems encountered by aging golfers and helps you lower your handicap while enjoying the game.
