Champions: For Cochran, And The Tour, Korea Is A Hit


The organizers of any golf tournament churn with more anxiety than most people ever know, but there are events that throw sharp curve balls at the best and brightest. The Posco E&C Songdo Championship, the Champions Tour’s first visit to Asia, was one of those. Jack Nicklaus GC Korea in Songdo International Business District near Incheon was rife with challenges, enduring pythium blight, a typhoon and 60 inches of rain this summer, including six inches during the tournament. Click here to read his golf gps reviews at golfgpscenter.net.

All of which made 51-year-old Russ Cochran a most fitting winner, for he perfectly fit the reclamation theme, having not won since his only PGA Tour victory 19 years ago at the Centel Western Open and being driven off the tour in his 40s after an assortment of serious injuries.

But Cochran had been pecking away at senior success, contending consistently, and he was opportunistic when Fred Funk opened the door in the final round. Funk, whose own comeback following knee replacement surgery was realized a couple of weeks ago when he won the Jeld-Wen Tradition, missed a 2 1/2-foot birdie putt on the par-5 18th hole to send him and the left-handed Cochran into a playoff after finishing 54 holes at 12-under 204.

Power (Part II)

An SRM (an acronym for “Schoberer Rad Messtechnik,” which loosely translates as “Schoberer’s cycling measuring technique/technology”) consists of a strain gauge mounted inside the crankarm spider, and a monitor mounted on the handlebar. Readings are picked up via a sensor like a standard bike odometer. It’s not yet available to the public.


Similar computers were developed by Look and Power Pacer but were never widely used. Perhaps the biggest obstacle was the conservatism of European pro team directors, who are wary of new training techniques. A more practical reason is the weight penalty. The SRM adds 250 grams to a bike. Another is price–more than $5,000. Also, supporting software for tracking performance in a dizzying array of charts and graphs has only recently been developed.

Despite the expense and complexity, Carmichael and sports biomechanist Jeff Broker, Ph.D., believe the SRM could become the next universal training tool. (Other cycling scientists and some riders, such as Greg LeMond, agree.)

“We initially used it to determine the most aerodynamic positions and equipment,” Broker says. “But it also allows us to measure actual improvement by tracking power output in watts at a given heart rate.”

For instance, suppose a rider covers a course in 10 minutes at an average heart rate of 170 bpm and an average power output of 300 watts. A month later, an identical ride takes 11 minutes at the same heart rate, but the cyclist produces 330 watts. If you look only at elapsed time, you might think the rider lost power. But direct measurement of watts tells the true story. He was actually stronger. There must have been harder headwinds or some other impediment on the second ride.

Carmichael cites another example. “The SRM allows coaches to record actual power output in a competitive event and find out exactly what a rider must be capable of to win,” he says. “If we know a road race requires 10 minutes at 800 watts, 2 hours at 250 watts and another hour in between, we know what we have to accomplish in training. And, we’ll have a physiological profile of a successful racer.”

  • In some events, particularly track, the measurements are exactingly precise. In the 4-man team pursuit, the SRM revealed that the lead rider puts out about 600 watts. When he swings to the top of the velodrome banking and drops to the rear of the paceline after his pull, watts drop to 350. Drafting in the third position, the rider’s power output declines to 250. In the second slot it rises slightly.
  • With this information, coaches can devise a set of intervals for training that exactly mimic the power demands of the event.
  • The SRM can even judge riding technique. For instance, if a rider edges above 400 watts at the back of the paceline, “he probably used too much energy catching back on and needs to smooth out his exchange,” Carmichael explains.
  • Finally, the SRM is a great motivational tool for indoor training. Information on heart rate, power output, and cadence can be displayed on any IBM-compatible monitor. In Hartwell’s epic sprint session, this information acted as classic biofeedback, exhorting him to greater efforts.

Simulated competition could be especially important to riders who can’t race as often as they wish but want to maintain peak condition. Hartwell is ignoring the criterium circuit to concentrate on training for a few kilometer events. “The feedback helps,” he says. “I’m not racing much this year, but I can compete against my past performances and still stay sharp.”

It sounds exciting, but how long before the technology trickles down to benefit you? No one is sure, but Carmichael guesses it will be some time. Even at the elite level, the U.S. lags behind cycling kingpins such as Germany and Australia in measuring and developing power. Germany has an estimated 30 SRMs in operation. The OTC has 1. This means that many aspiring Olympians–let alone weekend century riders–don’t have a profile of their power.

But Carmichael isn’t daunted. “We’re going to get more units,” he says. And he believes that someday SRM-like devices will be available–and affordable-for fitness riders. Until then, we non-Olympic pedal pounders can light up the roads and trails with one of Carmichael’s 4 power-specific workouts

Power (Part I)

Every cyclist seeks to maximize the power that they can exert in their riding. The real measure of power is in how many watts a cyclist can generate which can be understood as the total measure of exertion over time.

Think about the word. It is what separates casual riders from the elite. You can be a precision bike handler, a wheelsucker extraordinaire, an elegant pedaler–but if you can’t crank when the crunch comes, you’ll be left behind. Lust for power isn’t limited to racers. Sure, Lance Armstrong wants to time trial better, and John Tomac wants to put a bigger hurt on the riders already eating his dirt. But club riders sick of getting dropped on the Sunday ride need more power, too.

What exactly is this elusive quality? How do we measure it? And how can we get it-lots of it?

To find out, I went to the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado, for an inside look at a special program that’s helping cyclists and researchers understand how power is developed and delivered. This knowledge will help our stars-and-stripes riders in Atlanta in ’96. Right now all of the research is happening on the road, but the lessons translate into information that can be used by any cyclist on any surface.

Chris Carmichael, the U.S. Cycling Federation’s director of coaching, says that although power is key to cycling success, most of us don’t understand what it is.

“Riding up a hill in a big gear at 50 revolutions per minute doesn’t develop power,” Carmichael says. “It develops strength. Power is defined as work over time. It’s best developed at high cadence: 100 to 130 rpm for most riders, even higher for the elite.”

For a graphic example, I watched ’92 Olympic kilometer bronze medalist Erin Hartwell (pictured) ride a series of hard efforts on resistance rollers. Hartwell is 6-foot-1 with impressive quadriceps muscles developed from his event and the heavy weightlifting squats he regularly endures. In a 53×14-tooth gear, with the magnetic resistance set high, Hartwell launched into a seated sprint. The bike groaned. The rollers shrieked. Hartwell topped 180 rpm, producing enough watts to light up Colorado Springs.

That’s power.

Watts isn’t a figurative term when you’re talking power. It’s a real measurement. Whether for humans or machines, the watts is how power output is tracked. One hundred will illuminate a light bulb. With a bit over 300 watts, a typical cyclist can break 60 minutes for a 40-km time trial. British rider Chris Boardman averaged about 430 in setting the 52.270-km hour record last year.

  • How many do you produce? Most recreational cyclists crank out about 225 watts throughout a 60-minute spin, whether it’s on the road or dirt. National-class riders reach beyond the 370s. Pros begin there and go up, to an astonishing 600 watts reportedly generated by 5-time Tour de France winner Eddy Merckx during a lab test.
  • Power can be tracked precisely on an ergometer. And special stationary trainers such as the CompuTrainer (see “Power to the People,” below) record watts for inhome training. But measuring power in actual riding conditions has always been problematic.
  • If you generated 300 watts to ride the equivalent of 23 mph on an ergometer, there’s no guarantee that the same amount of power would translate into 23 mph on the road. Variables such as wind, temperature, drafting, and rough pavement have always made lab-to-life comparisons meaningless. Until recently.

A device called the SRM Powermeter has begun gaining acceptance among the cycling elite. Invented by Ulrich Schoberer 8 years ago, the SRM measures watts from the rider’s own bike.

Quinn’s mighty start (Part II)

Francis Quinn Sr.

Francis Quinn Sr. got it all started when he married Carol Cosgrove 51 years ago and took lessons at Green Hill GC in Worcester under her uncle, Walter Cosgrove, whose most famous pupil was another Worcester guy, six-time PGA Tour winner Paul Harney. Franny won the 1966 New England Amateur but backed off from golf as a career to raise seven children while working in sales and marketing in the pharmaceutical industry.

But golf was in his genes, and he passed that love onto his children. Fran Jr. and his brothers Brian and Kevin each won the Massachusetts Open. Another brother, Chris, has been club champion at Worcester CC and the youngest brother, Patrick, carries a single-digit handicap. Quinn’s daughters didn’t take up golf, but MaryAnn was a gymnast in high school while Erin played field hockey.

“It all goes back to him instilling the belief in us that no matter what your dreams are, you keep dreaming and if you work hard enough you can attain them,” Fran Jr. told the Worcester Telegram & Gazette after his father died on Jan. 2, 2012, at 74.

Quinn played in the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach in 1992, Oakmont in 1994 and Oakland Hills in 1996. Only at Oakmont did he make the cut, finishing 43rd. “I was right on the cusp of getting my card [from the Web.com Tour],” he said. “You couldn’t really afford not to play. So unfortunately, you had to skip the Open at times.”

Quinn’s mighty start (Part I)

Quinn’s mighty start

The Quinns are to Massachusetts golf what the Kennedys are to politics in the Bay State-iconic, dynastic and revered as much for their sense of family as they are for their accomplishments. And although the Quinns did not achieve success on a national scale the way the Kennedys did-they are more blue-collar than blueblood-their footprint on golf in New England is enormous. On Thursday, Fran Quinn Jr., with his son, Owen, on the bag, gutted his way onto the leader board at the U.S. Open with a first-round 68 on a fiery Pinehurst No. 2 where only Martin Kaymer, at 65, was able to go lower.

Quinn, who was born in Worcester, Mass., and lives now in nearby Holden, is the kind of story that makes the U.S. Open a special event. He was one of the more than 10,000 players who started out in local qualifying in a bid to make the field of 156 players. When he got there, Quinn made the most of it, playing impressively, especially for a 49-year-old journeyman who overcame stress fractures in his back the last couple of years and played the last of his three previous U.S. Opens 18 years earlier.

His success was a victory-albeit short-lived-for the grinder who plays more for the love of the game than for the luxury it brings. How long has Quinn been hanging onto the edges of professional golf? He’s played on the Web.com Tour through five different names, starting with the Ben Hogan Tour in 1990; the Nike Tour, where he won the 1999 Dakota Dunes Open; the Buy.com Tour, where he won the 2000 Florida Classic; and the Nationwide Tour, where he won the 2009 Albertsons Boise Open and 2010 Panama Claro Championship.

Club Max – Final Part




In a recent issue of Golf Digest , Tom Morton, director of the Player Performance Studio at Haggin Oaks Golf Super Shop in Sacramento, Calif., stated that, at best, one in four golfers are using the right putter. “Maybe. And that’s mostly by luck,” he says.

Duane Anderson, R&D analyst for TaylorMade, agrees with that assessment. “The percentage of everyday players I’ve worked with who come in with the right putter is pretty low,” he says. “That’s because they are making that choice based on comfort level or what they see on tour. It has nothing to do with getting the best putter for them.”

Indeed. Instead of taking advantage of a science-based fitting session that uses a system like the SAM PuttLab or the Tomi that reveal how efficient your putting stroke is (and how it changes when you switch putters), too many players still angrily grab a putter off the rack after the latest three-jack on the last hole to lose a $5 Nassau. Of course, that may explain why so many golfers have four or five putters in their basement. Despite putting being the most individual aspect of the game, players would have less grief on the greens if they approached putting as a science instead of an art.

“A lot of golfers get fit on a launch monitor for drivers, but they don’t realize we can do the same for putting,” says Anderson. “One degree [of loft] can make a huge difference.”

Club Max – Part II



Launch monitors, shaft-fitting systems and adjustability help turn around clubs to a player’s exact specs in a matter of minutes. But despite huge differences between tour-caliber balls and the kind you buy at Wal-Mart, ball-fitting continues to be an underappreciated method of improvement.

“It amazes me that so many golfers play a ball without giving much thought to it,” says Brandon Sowell, golf ball marketing manager for Bridgestone. “Every player has a ball that will optimize his launch characteristics. It’s just a matter of finding it. We’re coming up on our 100,000th ball-fitting, and we’ve seen the great improvement that can be made by someone changing from the wrong ball to the right ball. It’s a drastic improvement at times. Plus, it’s probably the least-expensive change in equipment a player can make.”

Although it may be the least expensive, Bill Morgan, senior VP of golf ball R&D for Titleist, says it should be the most time-consuming. “A lot of players incorrectly use driver distance as the key determinant in selecting a golf ball,” says Morgan. “But it is the spin into and around the green where you see more significant differences, not off the tee.
