Allen hits the links

Ray Allen [1] turned 34 this summer and there are no signs of slowing down. On Thursday the Celtics [2] guard — and avid golfer — participated in the Deutsche Bank Championship pro-am in Norton, MA. He told the Boston Herald [3] hitting the links has helped him stay in playing shape.

‘€œThe beautiful thing about golf is there are so many hours in the day in the summertime,’€ he said. ‘€œYou can get up early in the morning and work out and then play golf late in the day. It helps me keep that competitive edge and stay in shape.

‘€œIt’€™s been great,’€ Allen said of the offseason. ‘€œI’€™m in one of the best shapes I’€™ve been in at this point in the summer, just from having the time to let my body heal and work out and get certain parts stronger. I’€™ve enjoyed this summer.’€

In addition to golfing, Allen also follows a training regimen [4] at Quinnipiac University in Hamden, CT with former UConn Husky/QU men’s assistant basketball coach Scott Burrell.
