Golf

UPDATE

14 LIFESTYLE JUNE/JULY 2011

SUMMER IS HERE it’s time to break out the bermuda shorts and play some golf!

Scott Parker and his crew have the golf course looking better than ever. We have many great events this month for members, beginning with The Brute on the 4th and 5th. This exciting, two-day event is a match play in which you and your partner will play 5, nine-hole matches against the other teams in your flight. It begins on Saturday with 3 matches, followed by lunch, then the final 2 matches on Sunday. The MGA Partnership on June 11th and 12th is a new event for the MGA, and promises tremendous entertainment. We also have Couples Twilight golf on July 1st and July 22nd. The first annual Kings & Queens couples’ member guest will be held July 21st – 23rd. The schedule of events includes a complimentary practice round on Thursday, July 21st, along with a pairings party offering complimentary wine and hors d’oeuvres that evening. Friday, July 22nd will begin with a 9:00 a.m. shotgun start, followed by lunch and a putting contest in the afternoon. Saturday, July 23rd will begin with a

9:00 a.m. shotgun start, followed by lunch and the awards ceremony in the Vista Room with beer and margaritas. This first annual couples member guest is sure to be a thrilling event. Pick up a schedule of events in the golf shop for more details. In April, the club hosted the Red and Blue, which is Comanche Trace’s version of the Ryder Cup. The Blue team, captained by Leonard Scott and Jacob Davis went against the Red team of John Harrison and Tony Johnson. It was a very competitive two day event that finished with a score of 21.5 Blue to 14.5 Red. Way to go Blue team! Thank you to all the players from both teams and to all the wives who came out to support the event. This is a great event in which all the players qualify for their spots, so make sure to sign up for as many MGA events in the future to help get in next year’s event. I would like to thank all the volunteers who helped during the Valero Texas Open qualifier this year. The Valero Texas Open qualifier was


held on April 7th and 11th and we had some of the top Nationwide and touring professionals trying to qualify for 4 spots to the new TPC Marriott JW resort in San Antonio. The low score on Thursday during the pre-qualifier was 66. Our own Jacob Davis, Assistant Professional at Comanche Trace, came in with a 69. The weather on Monday changed with gusty winds blowing out of the north at 20 to 30 mph. The top four went on to play in the Valero Texas Open in San Antonio. Chris Smith shot the low of the day with a 66. Parker LaBarge shot a 68 and there was a 6-way playoff for the last two spots at 69. The course was in beautiful shape and comments from the professionals were that “Comanche Trace has some of the best greens in Texas.” The players also would like to thank the many volunteers who helped, and noted that the generosity of our membership is second to none. Just a quick reminder of the Men’s Club Championship on July 29th, 30th & 31st. Also, Kid Comanche is scheduled for June 14th- 17th and again July 12th- 15th. Make sure to get the kids and/or grandkids signed up through the golf shop. Speed and Read Equally Important As an instructor it has been drilled into my head that speed is more

important than line. This will always have some measure of truth to it. For example, if you have a perfect read but end up one inch short, you obviously had a speed issue. In my own effort, if you read a putt incorrectly and have the appropriate speed you can still end up in threeputt territory, particularly with doublebreaking putts. It doesn’t take much to end up with a five to seven footer that should have been two feet, at worst. On the contrary, reading the greens better has dramatically improved my speed; only if I get fooled do I end up with a longer second putt than I wanted. There is no question that speed is important with a putt but if you misread a putt with correct speed it is definitely worse than reading it correctly and ending up an inch short (the second scenario is definitely better from a competition standpoint).

Get Back in the Swing be at the top of your game with a tpi certified golf fitness instructor assessment By Jane Garbish

16 LIFESTYLE JUNE/JULY 2011


JANE GARBISH TPI CERTIFIED FITNESS PROFESSIONAL 830-370-9905

Every season golf enthusiasts anxiously await announcements of new equipment introductions. The biggest and best new driver that’s going to give them an extra 30 yards off the tee, or perhaps the redesigned hybrid that will make fairway shots so much more accurate. And then there’s the new putter… sure to improve the score. Hope springs eternal, right? What many of you are forgetting, however, is your most important piece of equipment is not your clubs, or your golf balls, but it’s your body! That’s right! All the latest and greatest equipment will have no positive effect on your game if your body is not fit to swing a club. Most golfers do not consider themselves athletes. An athlete, after all, is someone who is competing in a physically demanding sport. Football and basketball players, as an example – they’re athletes. Those sports put a great deal of physical strain on a body, so in turn, the players must embark on a regular physical routine to not only perform at their peak, but to prevent possible injury. Golf, though, is a different story. It’s not a contact sport. You’re just hitting that little ball down the fairway and then most likely getting

in the golf cart to take you to the next shot. How physically demanding can that be? Well, as it turns out, pretty demanding. The average golfer is taking about 60 full swings each round, and if you include practice swings – double that. Not only are major joints involved – hips and shoulders to name two – but all the muscles that need to be toned in order to keep those joints strong. Effective body mechanics require flexibility, stability, mobility, balance and muscular strength. Without all those attributes, you will no doubt be plagued by a mediocre golf game and a high propensity to injury. As a Titleist Performance Institute Certified Golf Fitness Instructor, let me assess your physical attributes just as your golf professional assesses your swing. How much more effective would those golf lessons be if you were actually able to perform the motions required? With a TPI 12-point physical screening, you will know where your limitations are. Then, embarking on an exercise program designed specifically for your needs, you can focus your training time to just those areas that can improve your game and help you prevent those inevitable injuries. For a well tuned golf game, time on the

practice range must be combined with time in the gym. No one wants to waste time, so use that gym time to work on areas that are specific to improving your weaknesses. Begin with flexibility and core strengthening and eventually transition into mobility, balance and muscular endurance training. You will only be as good as your weakest link. The compensations you have made in your golf game developed around those weak links, most likely resulting in poor habits and improper mechanics. Let’s work on those physical mechanics which will translate to a better and safer golf game. Give me a call today to set up your screening appointment. Let the TPI program work for you!

Faith Friendly Atmosphere

By Bill Blackburn, Ph.D., President, Partners in Ministry: The Leadership Foundation of the Texas Hill Country

Kerr County and Kerrville have a rich tradition of faith and of cooperation among the churches and religious groups of this area. The second church building in Kerrville had Sunday services alternating between the Methodists, the Presbyterians, the Disciples of Christ, and the Baptists. Father Kemper who served as priest at the Notre Dame Catholic Church from 1911 to 1955 was known for taking Sunday nights to visit the Protestant churches. Local churches, numbering over ninety in the county, support ministries to children, youth, senior adults, and those in poverty. From Young Life to the Christian Assistance Ministry, from the YMCA to the New Hope Counseling Center, from Art 2 Heart to the Christian Women’s Job Corps, there are important ministries making a difference in the lives of thousands in this Hill Country county. Seated around the table of the Kerrville Ministerial Alliance are representatives from Lutheran, Baptist, Church of Christ, Unity Charismatic, Presbyterian, Episcopalian and Methodist churches. Included in the community are Jewish persons, Muslims, Buddhists, and other faith groups. 30 LIFESTYLE JUNE/JULY 2011

The Ladies enjoyed lunch at the Garden’s Carriage House Bistro and finished the afternoon with a glass of wine on the beautiful drive back home to Comanche Trace.

EASTER AT COMANCHE TRACE The Easter Bunny made special arrangements to be at Comanche Trace Easter weekend.

We know the questions to ask in the beginning so that there are no surprises later on. And we’re committed to ensuring that every material, every finish, every product that goes into your home meets or exceeds our unusually high standards.

KERRVILLE INDEPENDENT SCHOOL DISTRICT

If you dream of living in the beautiful Texas Hill Country, you’re not alone. Those of us that have realized that dream cherish the close-knit community and beautiful setting. But when selecting an area to raise children the key consideration should be the school system. In Kerrville, Texas your dreams can come true as you raise your children while we raise the bar to provide the highest quality of education in the area. For the fourth consecutive year, the Kerrville Independent School District stands as the only 4A or 5A district in the region to receive a “Recognized” or “Exemplary” rating. Every single KISD campus received a Texas Education Agency rating of “Exemplary” or “Recognized.” This, despite rising standards and looming cuts to the public education budget, KISD continues to provide the highest quality of education without raising taxes. Earning a “Superior Achievement” rating on the Financial Integrity Rating System of Texas for the eighth consecutive year, KISD remains financially stable even in unstable times 40 LIFESTYLE JUNE/JULY 2011

and, for multiple years, KISD’s tax rate has remained in the bottom 15% of districts in Texas. Providing high quality education to students at the current cost, with a price tag that can be easily worn by all taxpayers, will be a huge challenge in the coming years but one Superintendent Dan Troxell meets head on. Named the

2008 Texas Association of School Boards Superintendent of the Year, Troxell will continue his mission to leave no child unchallenged through the teamwork of a veteran School Board of Trustees with over 57 years combined service to children in Kerrville.

KISD has much to be proud of. While top ratings obviously prove strong academics, KISD cherishes the hearts of the teachers, staff, administrators, community members, business leaders, and KISD families who are passionate about ensuring quality education for all children in Kerrville. The 725 fulltime staff works tirelessly to provide all children with the academic, emotional, and social support they need to be successful inside and outside of the classroom. The 4,887 students are committed to learning and welcome the challenges of rigor through Advanced Placement, Dual Credit, Coenrollment, or Gifted and Talented Education. College bound? Your child will be ready when graduating from Tivy High School. Once again, Tivy received the prestigious College Readiness Award. Only 5% of Texas high schools receive this honor for successfully preparing students for college. Coupled with a legacy of National Merit Scholars and annual state qualifiers in a number of University Interscholastic League (UIL) areas, students graduate from KISD prepared for higher learning or a career. Says Troxell, “The biggest misconception is that a district’s job is complete once a student graduates. KISD focuses on preparing students for college and


comanche trace COMMUNITY REPORT

preparing them for life. From college and career counseling, Career and Technology programs, offering a non-traditional high school setting for working students, to creating a community college for both current high school students and adults throughout the Hill Country, KISD strives to offer all the necessary tools to equip students for school and life.” Being well rounded is key to that lifelong success and KISD embraces both academic and athletic offerings. The Tivy Fight Never Dies mantra is proven on the field and off, whether through strong sports programs or the districts numerous academic competitions or extra-curricular opportunities. Become a Tivy Antler or Lady Antler in dozens of sports or display your talents in Destination Imagination, Mock Trial, Debate, UIL, or become a cadet in our Texas Distinguished Unit of Junior Air Force R.O.T.C. Even at the elementary level, our future graduates can thrive through elementary orchestra, Challenge Labs, and youth leadership programs on every campus. Best of all, the beautiful Texas Hill country setting offers our children a living laboratory. With invitations to learn inside and outside of the classroom throughout the year, our students and staff have benefited in the area of science

by the wealth of college, university, and camp programs willing to work with our students. Close proximity to numerous parks and recreation facilities and the availability of nearby camps open doors to our students for outdoor education to inspire a quest for science. Involved parents and a supportive business community are the hallmark of the district. Shares Troxell, “The school and community are a united force, acting in harmony, so that each student will succeed.” Organizations like the Kerrville Public School Foundation (KPSF) shore up the strength of the district through their mission to serve as a catalyst for involving the community in the enhancement and achievement of academic excellence for the children of Kerrville ISD by providing financial assistance not available through state or local funding. From raising money for our teachers and campuses through instructional grants or for numerous student scholarships, the Foundation nears a silver anniversary of support. In Kerrville ISD it seems everywhere you turn, children are given the support they need to be successful. We wouldn’t dream of anything else, nor should you. We invite you to take a closer look. www.kerrvilleisd.net (830)257-2200

No one is more passionate about their hobby than the garden guru’s at Comanche Trace. Veteran and novice gardeners enjoyed a gathering of the Garden Plot Growers. Green thumbs were on display everywhere. It’s hard to beat the camaraderie of avid soil breakers. More than thirty residents and members shared a great time with one another at a reception in their honor Wednesday, April 20th at the Comanche Trace garden. At the reception new members and veteran members enjoyed the opportunity to compare gardening tips and get to know one another. Because of an overwhelming response to the gardens, Comanche Trace just completed nine new garden plots in March. It was a digging good time!

Schreiner also offers a variety of learning opportunities for people who may not see themselves as students anymore. There is a growing cadre of Hill Country residents who have discovered that Schreiner welcomes the community to participate in a variety of educational and cultural programs, most of which are free.

comanche trace COMMUNITY REPORT

PETERSON REGIONAL MEDICAL CENTER

The Peterson Regional Medical Center continues their commitment of being the 72 LIFESTYLE JUNE/JULY 2011

medical leader within the Hill Country by acquiring the state-of-the-art advanced surgical technology known as the da Vinci® Surgical System. The da Vinci® Surgical System combines computer and robotic technologies to create a new category of minimally invasive surgery options. This robotic system allows the surgeon to work in a smaller space with better visualization of the area they are operating on. The da Vinci doesn’t do the surgery; it allows the trained surgeon to manipulate robotic “arms” with his/her thumb and forefinger. The result is an extremely steady and precise surgery. It will enhance the patient experience with less after-surgery pain and a shorter patient recovery time.

Bringing the da Vinci to Peterson will definitely have a positive economic impact on Kerrville. Patients who want this type of minimally invasive surgery will not have to travel to San Antonio or Austin where da Vinci surgery is available. “Having this advanced technology will also help us recruit physicians to the area,” explained Pat Murray, CEO of PRMC. “There are physicians all over the country who are familiar with the da Vinci. Being able to offer that option to their patients is an extra incentive as they consider bringing their practice to Kerrville.” “Peterson Regional Medical Center is our community hospital” stated Robert C. Fairchild, President of the PRMC Foundation Board. “It is really a privilege

to be able to help our hospital acquire this amazing equipment. When the hospital was first built back in 1949 it was heralded as one of the most innovative and forward thinking of that time. I believe it’s important that we continue on that same path of innovation and advancement today.” Bringing this advanced technology to the Hill Country creates an opportunity for the hospital and the community to come together. Funding for the da Vinci thanks to advance gifts by our community members and leaders - has already reached almost 60% of the $1.5 million campaign goal. Leading the campaign effort are Trichairs, Melissa Pevehouse Hoelscher, R. E. “Ed” Warren, Jr. and James E. Wilson, CPA. Other members of the Campaign Steering Committee are: R. H. “Sonny” Baldwin, Kathy Camp Casper, Robert C. Fairchild, Frank W. Maresh, CPA, Louis Romero, Jr., Shirley and Robert L. Schmerbeck, III, A. L. “Curg” Starkey, III, M. Scott Stehling, Edgar A. Wallace, L. Bryant Williams, and William Womack. Those who wish to participate in helping bring this state-of-the-art surgical system to Kerrville are encouraged to call 830258-7411 to find out how they can make a donation.
