  • Tiger Woods gears up for a miraculous Masters Tournament

    Tiger Woods is gearing up for his latest Augusta appearance this weekend in a bid to claim his fifth green jacket. In previous years, that may not have been such an incredulous statement. However, given the fact he was in crippling agony last year and barely able to pull himself out of bed, his assertion that that he is a "walking miracle" does not seem so outlandish.

    Tiger suffered the pain of a lower back fusion and, this very week last year, needed to leave the Champion's Dinner early because he was in excruciating pain. This year, however, he is the record-holder for fastest swing on the PGA tour, ringing in at 129 mph according to The Telegraph.

    “The reason why I said ‘I'm a walking miracle’ is that I don't know anyone who's had a lower back fusion who can swing as fast as I can now,” Woods said in the Augusta media room. “That's incredible. Some guys have come up to me said, ‘yeah, I need to fuse my back so I can hit it harder’. So that's why I say that - because it is a miracle.

    “I went from a person who really had a hard time getting up, walking around, sitting down, anything, to now swinging the club …at 129 [mph - the fastest on the PGA Tour this year]. That is a miracle, isn't it?”

  • Take a swing at cancer

     

    MissDesignerGolf.com and the Irish Cancer Society are teaming up to take a swing at cancer this Spring, and we want your help.

    Over the next 3 months, we will be helping raise vital funds and awareness for cancer research. We will be distributing information leaflets with every order we send out that highlight the facts and symptoms associated with breast cancer and cervical cancer. We have also launched our JustGiving campaign with the aim of raising €6,000 for cancer research.

    Breast cancer is most common in women over 50. Between Ireland and the UK, roughly 58,000 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer every year, according to the Irish Cancer Society and Cancer Research UK. While the survival rate is improving year on year, there is still a long way to go in terms of fighting breast cancer and ensuring everyone who receives a diagnoses gets the support and healthcare that they need.

    Cervical cancer is also most common in women in their 40s and 50s, but can happen at any age. Combined, there is just under 3,500 cases of cervical cancer diagnosed in Ireland and the UK annually. Cervical cancer can be caught early through screenings and smear tests, and your risk can also be reduced by getting the HPV vaccine.

    Remember, it pays to be safe when it comes to symptoms. Early detection is key to your chances of survival. Check your breasts regularly, and if you are worried about something, make an appointment with your doctor.

    If you want to join the fight, simply head over to JustGiving to donate and share this post!
