17 years ago my wife said I do. Not sure if it was her best decision but damn glad she has stuck it out with me this long.

Well here's some great news: We just signed docs for purchase of a condo adjacent to #1 green at our club. We're doing the happy dance after 4 very stressful days wondering where we were going to live

Played 9. Terrible. Long irons were sharks with laser beams. But I have developed a push with mid and short irons.

Also lots of ballooning. Got a new wedge trick in the bag though.

Time to get fit and take some lessons. Ever since my shoulder surgery I’ve had a heck of a time getting my lower body clear. Not sure how that correlates...

Seemed to have fixed my swing issues just in time for Pine Valley on Thursday.

I just can't wait to experience the course. I hope I play okay, but score will be secondary. I will not let an ounce of frustration enter my body and take away from this experience.

Make sure you give the Turtle Soup a try if you get to eat in the grill room. Also, listen to your caddy as they know the course well and can give a lot of great advice.

At the tail end of a 16 hour day today I got an email for a golf invite to Trump Westchester on Friday. My first thought was to say no due to work commitments and then well I sent my admin an email and let her know I was taking Friday off. Haven’t hit a ball in over two weeks but it is one of my favorite tracks so why not?

Enjoy the game, you're worth it!

Most of us enjoy watching the Class of 2011 on the pro tour.    I have had the opportunity to watch the future classes of golfers on a much lower level, but never the less, more enjoyable on a personal level.   A close friend of mine has a grandchild that is the number 3 player on his high school team as a freshman.   A year of so ago, my friend and I were playing golf and he noticed some improvement in my game and asked how he heck did that happen.   I told him that I was taking lessons from a local PGA teaching pro.   He then asked me to see if the pro would be willing to work with a youngster because he saw the natural talent in his grandson.   So I asked the pro and he responded that he loved to work with young golfers one on one.   Not only has the pro been working with the youngster but he is super enthused doing so.  

My friend and I constantly discuss the youngster's progress,   My friend also knows that I have an interest in his progress.   So he said to me that it would be helpful if someone other than his grandfather and his instructor would support and encourage him.   Last week I went with my friend to watch his grandson and his teammates compete in the local high school championship which they won and his grandson had the third lowest score of all the players most of whom were seniors.   Yesterday, I went to watch them compete in the eastern shore district championship.   While another school beat them by one stroke in the team total, they never the less did qualify for the coming State championship in their division.  

While I was at those tournaments to support my friend's grandson,  I found that I genuinely enjoyed watching all the youngsters play.    I saw the personal relationships that they had developed over the season of play beyond their teammates and the sportsmanship that they displayed.   I realized that I am watching some "really good kids" both as golfers and future adults.   While since my days of playing a team sport times have changed,  it seems that the values and lessons learned by participating in athletics and on a team have not diminished.  

While my friend and I have no illusions about his grandson playing on a Division I college team or every being a pro,  I find it extremely rewarding and enjoyable to support youngsters in their athletic and team activities even if they are not your child.  Most likely you will be supporting some "really good kids" that will be needed in our future.

Do it, life is short. I’ve found out over many years the work will always be there.

Great story, kids need the personal interaction and positive support from adults.

I am not sure it is actually possibly to work more hours in a week than I have been doing the last two months.  It comes and it goes for me, but 10 more years of this and I should be able to move onto a second career with a lot less stress.
