Yes... Acupuncture Can Help
Well... it might not help your swing, but it can keep you healthy, active and on the course enjoying the game you love. Here is a story from a few years ago, I still find insightful.
In 2004, Couples was trailing in the Buick Classic and playing with unbearable pain. Couples's back was throbbing to the point where he considered withdrawing from the tournament. After gritting his teeth through an opening-round 67, a friend advised visiting an acupuncturist. Couples received treatment on Thursday afternoon and Friday morning, and when he arrived for the second round Friday at Westchester Country Club, he still had an acupuncture pin in each ear. But the throbbing in his back was gone.
''To me, it's unbelievable what they can do,'' Couples said.
Couple's play was also impressive. Shooting a six-under-par 65 during a bogey-free round that included six birdies, Couples grabbed a one-stroke lead heading into the third round. He finished 10 under par and tied for 4th place. As you know, he still plays strong today. Couples most recently finished 6th at the Masters and won 3 out of the seven tournaments in this year's Champions Tour.
