    The New Shark Exhibit at the National Aquarium

    Last updated 2 months ago

    The National Aquarium has brought an exciting new exhibit to the Baltimore area: the Blacktip Reef. This exhibit contains 20 intelligent and majestic sharks. Watch this video for a preview of the new shark exhibit at the National Aquarium.

    The Blacktip Reef exhibit accurately recreates a natural shark habitat. Photographs were taken of the Pacific Reef, and then specialists recreated the reef with a clay model. Even the colors of the rocks in the exhibit match those of the Pacific Reef. The sharks have learned to respond to trainers’ cues for feeding; their favorite food tends to be squid.

    The Steps of Mastering Your Golf Swing

    Last updated 2 months ago

    While strength and flexibility help, the game of golf is less about brawn than it is about technique and perseverance. If you are a golf hobbyist or aspiring golf pro who is looking to be on top of your game, practice these tips for mastering each phase of the effective golf swing the next time you are at a hotel with amenable golf facilities.

    Setting up the Ball
    Ball placement may seem trivial to someone who is unacquainted with the intricacies of golf, but all good golfers eventually learn that you cannot have a perfect golf swing without the perfect ball setup. Draw imaginary lines outward from your feet, and place the ball between these lines. Ideal ball placement varies slightly depending on the type of club you are using, but it should always be between the line extending from your front foot and the halfway point between these two imaginary lines. Do not place the ball too close to your feet.

    Gripping the Club
    The perfect grip requires all ten fingers to be on the club, with the thumb and forefinger from each hand forming a V that points to the right shoulder. Professional golfers never grip their clubs too tightly. A lighter grip allows you to swing more freely, hitting the golf ball naturally rather than with jerky force.

    Perfecting Your Backswing
    A good backswing requires your arms, hands, and shoulders to form a triangle and move together as one. Your hips, legs and feet should be firmly planted until contact is made with the ball.

    Following Through
    Once you have your backswing down, the follow through should feel natural. As soon as contact is made with the ball, your hips should rotate to the left as your torso and right foot turn toward the direction in which you want the ball to go.

    Once you have a good handle on your golf swing, take a weekend outing to Turf Valley to play on impeccably maintained courses in the beautiful, rolling hills of Central Maryland between Baltimore and Washington DC. To learn more about our hotel conference facilities, championship golf courses, and resident golf instructors who can help you master your swing and more, call (888) 718-3370.
