Shipp currently works at Plumas Pines Golf Resort coaching and teaching golf. Shipp has also been fea- tured in PGA Magazine, for his unique take on the game of golf. Shipp strives to teach the simple, fun aspect of golf to his students, Ray grew up a natural ath- lete and flourished in the sports program at QHS. Ray played football and basketball, among other sports on the side. Ray received a doctorate in physical therapy from Chap- man University and is a li- censed physical therapist. Ray currently works at The Facto- ry in West Lake Village. One day while talking to Ray, Shipp noticed the lack of physical training in the game of golf. "There really isn't a whole lot out there in golf fitness," noted Shipp. "We wanted to bridge a gap between the fit- ness world and the golfing world." Since that meeting, Shipp and Ray, with the guidance of Bowling, created a business plan to utilize a fitness pro- gram created by Ray. Ray cre- ated one of the only physical training programs tailored specifically for golf. The goal of the program is to instill a sense of correct movements and stretching ex- ercises to prevent injury and accelerate golfers' games. The program is especially helpful When James Shipp and Zach Ray attended school to- gether at Quincy High School, they never imagined they would eventually work togeth- er. As they became adults and started their separate careers, they also never imagined they would work together. Now, after two years of work, the website they creat- ed with the help of pro golfer Brandon Bowling is complet- ed and a new philosophy on . approaching golf has materi- alized. Shipp fell in love with golf while in high school. He pur- to those who have health re- lated issues when Playing golf. "There's a ]ot of guys out there who would like to play more golf but can't do it," said Shipp. "Either they play in pain or they're sore for a few days after they play." The Fit to Hit program starts with a self-assessment and pain clearance phase. Once this is passed, the golfer moves on to the next phase. If it is not passed, the first phase is repeated until it is mas- tered. Eventually the golfer goes into a 20-week strength- building phase. Golfers can sign up for the program on the website, fitto- Instructional videos are provided to website members that detail tech- niques and exercises for them to practice. Shipp and Ray filmed a se- "ties o.f videos that highlight the proper ways to conduct the exercises. Golfers can practice the exercises at home, then receive more de- tailed instruction from their local golf pro. The website also encour- ages members to utilize their local golf pros. A search en- gine made specifically for the website will direct users to lo- cal pros in their area. The pro will then work with the Fit to Hit member toutilize the pro- gram and improve his or her swing and technique. The website launched mid- September and has already at- tracted a lot of buzz in the golf community. Shipp, Ray and Bowling all predict the site and program to be a hit. Those interested in the pro- gram may go to fittohit- or contact James Shipp at 836-1420. James Shipp and Dr. Zach Ray demonstrate their stretches intended for golfers. The stretches are part of a new program that bridges golf with fitness training.
