I was laid off/let go/terminated/downsized/whatever you wanna call it for the first time in my life one month ago today. It's been a weird month. They gave me several months of severance as I had been with the company for over 7 years, so that's nice. But I was doing something that may be going the way of the dodo. I had already planned a second career and this is helping to jumpstart that a little more, but I do need a real job for a bit longer before I can fully support myself on the side hustle. Unfortunately I haven't made it to the course here as I've either been trying to keep busy with the side hustle, keeping an ear out for a new job, or just being busy with the family. I think I'll go to the driving range here in a bit though.
If you've been laid off/let go/terminated/downsized/whatever, how did you cope? Did playing a few rounds help? Did ignoring your clubs help? Did something that has nothing to do with golf help? I know I'm not alone out there.

While at the PGA Show I had the opportunity to stop by the Under Armour Golf booth and check out all the latest in it's line of apparel, shoes and accessories. I made off with these two cool pair of shades that we are giving away to two lucky forum members. To be eligible, you have to be a forum member. Then it's a simple as posting below which model you would prefer.
1) Big Shot Tuned Golf ideal for wearing on the course during play
2) Glimpse Tuned Recovery, designed to help your eyes de-stress after the round and return to a natural state,
Both can be used on the course and the Big Shot Golf Tuned is one of the few golf sunglasses that are officially rated safe for driving a vehicle.
So tell us below which one you would choose to win and Good Luck!!
Entries will be closed on Sunday February 3rd at 11:59 PM EST The two winners will be announced in this thread by Tuesday February 5, 2019.
Thanks everyone for the great response to this giveaway.
Congratulations to our two winners: Please send me a PM with your mailing address.
So this was just a random off the wall topic today, that became quite an interesting discussion, with some sides and view points i didn't think of initially. Say the magic Golf Genie were to grant you ONE wish, you could have 25 more yards on every drive, or a guarantee drop of 3 strokes for each round. Which would you choose, and most importantly why?
Remember to vote in the poll. I guess app and TT users won't be able to see it.
