Glad to be back...man, I love this game
Back in the 2008 turkey shoot on Wall Street, I was fat dumb and happy. My wife and I both played every weekend and my foursome from work played twice a week. Two beach trips a year to Myrtle Beach with family to golf 5-6 days.. I even had a little golf club business of selling used clubs, regripping/reshafting clubs and even giving instruction to a junior golfer. Clearly I was living the dream. Then the day came when my employer, Tyco Electronics gave me the pink slip after 16 years of service. Well me, my golfing buddies and 60 others. My wife worked at Goodyear Tire and Rubber for 28 years and they shut her plant down the following year and sold the business to a company in South Korea. Sadly. we stopped playing and I sold all of our golf gear. A few moves later, a new employer and a more financial footing, my wife wanted to start playing again. In November, I gave her the green light and we dove back in. Man I love this game! Every aspect. The technical stuff, the swing mechanics, the equipment, the courses...yeah, it has been a rough seven years but we're finally playing again!
I want to take a second to remind everyone, you are not promised tomorrow. When you are on the golf course, act as though it is your last round. Financially, physically and mentality the game can be ripped out of your hands in a second. So stop playing angry and start playing like you're blessed...you are! Man, I love this game!
