I’ve never looked so crappy at 25-75 yard shots.  Grabs the club head and slams it shut… the on-lookers were probably laughing and thinking about offering me a free “lesson”… I looked like I had never seen a golf club before, pretty embarrassing.

It's probably the one time I don't mind my tendency to have a farmer's swing.  Not that any farmer would actually swing a club this way but it does remove sod exposing soil where planting is possible.  Ball may not go far but onto short grass is far enough out of that stuff. 

Had considered sharpening the bottom leading edge of the club to cut through the vegetation but with how often it goes the other way and balls hit thin it would cause a different kind of slice than usual.  

(No golf balls were harmed in the making of this comment. Any resemblance to actual golf is purely coincidental.)

Well, today I made it to 39 years old (17 years longer than I expected((dirt bikes, dangerous things…)).  To celebrate I’m headed to play 18.  Hopefully I can shoot a par of 39’s.  Seems unlikely, but one can wish. 

Happy Birthday!!  Play well.  You are 2 days older than I am... +36 years!!  😂

I used to practice my swing with a farmers long handle sickle. Instead of running a weed eater I would go around the property with the sickle using my golf swing until I couldn't swing it anymore. Totally amazed that I didn't cut my leg off or loose any toes. Worked on my golf swing and cleaned the property at the same time!  I still have that sickle in my shed.
