2 Man 9 Hole Scamble at Bushwood CC

2 Man 9 Hole Scramble at Bushwood CC

15 Pax rose early this beautiful morning with hopes of enjoying a casual round of golf at Bushwood CC.  They would soon realize the 2 man scramble they signed up for would have them screaming FORE!!

Warm Up:
Mosey lap around to front entrance of school parking lot and circled up
  • 20 Imperial Walkers in Cadence
  • 20 Low Slow Squats in Cadence
  • 20 Mountain Climbers in Cadence
  • 20 Merkins
The Thang:
1/2 mile run around Marvin Creek finishing at the front parking lot of Bushwood CC. A quick tutorial of the key fundamentals of a golf swing was shared with the Pax.  As a result a heavy focus on shoulders and core would set the tone for the 2 man scramble!
Pax Partnered up! 9 holes (at each street lamp) with 100 of each of the following exercises listed below. 1 partner began the exercise at hole 1 while the other partner ran the 9 hole course and then switched. Each 2 man team moved together thru each hole.
Merkins
LBC’s
Dry Docks
Freddy Mercuries
Mike Tyson’s
Heels to heaven
Bobby Hurleys
American Hammers
Moleskin:
Great work today gents and hopefully the Q didn’t let any of you down, Mike Tyson’s at hole 5 was no bueno for any of the Pax but everyone finished the hole with a birdie and moved on! We unfortunately ran off the cart part after hole #8 and did not get to finish the 9th hole but did get to enjoy a musical mix of Bob Marley, Scorpions, and some Cody Jinks as is expected at Bushwood!!

Pax were asked to pair up with a partner of similar speed for the next set of exercises which comprised of sprint races for each 50 yard straight stretch of the parking deck all the way down to the bottom! For some brilliant reason (maybe the high of DryUary coming to an end) I chose Transporter, 5 straight loses and 175 heart rate were the final results a few minutes later but felt great to get pushed to the limits! Treated by the soothing music of Twisted Sister “We’re not gonna take it!
