Around the age of 12, my grandparents both avid golfers themselves took me to the driving range to spend some quality time smacking golf balls around for fun. To their surprise and excitement, I was actually pretty good! They began taking me to the range regularly; they even bought me my first set of mini clubs that Christmas! They were tiny (like me), I remember, and they came in a bright purple bag. I loved those clubs.</p><p>By Christine Phillipp</p><p>In eighth grade, I was the only girl to show up for junior varsity golf team registration. Our school didnt have an official girls golf team, so they set me up with the coach of the club team that carried our schools name. I played all four years of high school, and it wasnt until my senior year that girls golf became a recognized school sport. The certificate that shows I lettered reads, First for the year. I like to believe that it was really the first ever. </p><p>Golf is so rewarding because it takes persistence, accuracy, patience, and discipline to be successful. You dont have to be the strongest or the fastest, and when you use all of the skills youve learned to finally hit that perfect shot, it just feels awesome. </p><p>Theres no better time to establish these skills than in adolescence. Fortunately for youth golfers on Okinawa, Chibana Golf Course will again hold junior golf clinics this summer featuring expert instruction from PGA professionals. </p><p>at the Chibana Golf Course</p><p>CHIBANA GOLF COURSE 966-7327</p></li><li><p>VENTURE 13</p><p>RECREATION</p><p>JUNIOR GOLF CLINICSClasses will consist of four one-hour sessions that cover putting, chipping and the full swing. After completion of their clinic on Thursday, each junior golfer will receive a graduation certificate. On Friday, children will be able to put their new skills to use in a Play Day that starts at 8 am, followed by lunch.</p><p>No golf clubs? No problem! Chibana will have golf clubs available for junior golfers. Plus youll receive a 25% discount on any special order junior golf clubs purchased before 17 August! </p><p>I can say from experience that I wish there were clinics like this when I was first learning. The instructors are great, and kids have an absolute blast learning together. Whats even better is that on lovely, sunny days when you have some time to burn, you can take the kids to Chibana and play as a family. Seeing their skills improve in tandem with yours is very rewarding.

In recent years the Classic has grown tremendously, reaching out to both the military community and local Okinawans. PMC strives to bring attention to the art of body sculpting, which is concerned with firmness, muscle tone, symmetry, proportion, and overall physical appearance of the muscular body.</p><p>Hosted by the Schilling Community Center on Kadena, the competition includes two categories of exhibition: figure and bodybuilding. Those competing in the figure category are evaluated on muscle tone and overall physique, while bodybuilder contenders are judged on a total presentation of size, symmetry, and muscular development. </p><p>Witness the 9th Annual Pacific Muscle Classic Sunday, May 17 at the Keystone Theater. Spectator tickets will go on sale Monday, April 20 at the Schilling Community Center and the Chibana Golf Course. Dont forget to purchase a 2015 PMC workout shirt to show your support for this years contestants! </p></li><li><p>VENTURE 23</p><p>HEALTH &amp; WELLNESS</p><p>How did you get started with bodybuilding? </p><p>I began lifting weights in my backyard at the age of 10, when my uncle taught me how to exercise. He made a makeshift gym out of concrete buckets that hed attached to a metal pole. We trained with dumbbells, and I would try to emulate him because I wanted to have the same physique. When my uncle moved I didnt touch weights again for 10 years, during my first deployment to Okinawa as a young marine. I started incorporating what my uncle taught me at the gym, and I also began taking supplements to help with recovery and muscle growth. I bought everything a young PFC could afford things like protein and weight gainer. For me, that was it. I was bit by the iron bug. For the next five years I only cared about becoming the biggest dude to walk in the gym.</p><p>2013 was my turning point when I switched from weightlifter to bodybuilder. I no longer wanted to be just huge; I wanted to look muscular and conditioned. I took a college nutrition class after work every day for three months. I learned a fair share of information about having a healthier lifestyle. I continue to practice a strict exercise regiment of both cardiovascular and weight training, as well as incorporating a healthier diet. Ive managed to lose fat while at the same time putting on lean, quality muscle. </p><p>What has bodybuilding done for you? </p><p>Its given me the privilege of taking part in a unique sport compared to others. Lifting weights is the easy part, its everything else that goes along with it how the smallest adjustments can make such dramatic changes to your body that can determine whether you are a champion or not. </p><p>What do you hope to get out of bodybuilding?</p><p>I look forward to the day I step on stage and share with an audience what I have molded in hopes of attaining perfect symmetry, definition, conditioning and muscular size. Someday, Id like to compete at a professional level and be an ambassador to this great sport. </p><p>Daniel Castro is an up-and-coming bodybuilder who plans to compete in the Pacific Muscle Classic. We asked Daniel some questions about this physically-demanding sport and what he hopes to get out of it. </p><p>Do you have a special role model or inspiration for bodybuilding? </p><p>Whenever I feel like quitting on anything, whether its because Im having a bad day or just because Im super tired, my inspiration is all of the wounded warriors and fallen c...</p></li></ul>
