I love to lift weights, but i also love to play golf. I love to gain muscle. I fear gaining too much muscle while i'm playing golf because i fear it could mess with my swing. I'm afraid that i'll get too big and not be able stretch and get my body around and all that.

What are your thoughts on this?

I don't know how big you are right now, but you'll probably be fine by gaining more muscle. You might have to adjust your swing a little, but in the long run, it'll all be worth it. The longer drives, the iron consistency, the backspin, everything. Good luck with your weight lifting! :thumbsup:

If you look closely on Tour there arn't many guys out there that could get endorsement deals for fitness clubs. Admittedly, Tiger could be the exception.
