…and no, this did not involve any drinking. But the posting of scores for handicap purposes comes to an end for 2012.
I had a fairly successful year, golf wise. My index dropped from 3.1 to 1.6. What this means now is that it will be VERY hard to make any money in matches over the winter….and I’m throwing up some decent scores.
I made some subtle changes to my game that I’ve sort of documented, and will do so more in depth during the winter. I’m not unhappy with my play, primarily due to my more pragmatic view of the limitations i have for time and practice. I’m grateful for any time I get to spend either at my far right station on the practice facility or enjoying the golf course on a Saturday or Sunday morning.
This weekend, I got to play both days. And for the most part, I managed my misses well, struck a few masterful shots and in between managed to make a couple horrendous swings. Such is golf. And I do enjoy it so. And it baffles me. And that’s why I come back for more.
And that’s why I played this morning as Hurricane Sandy is barreling up the East Coast (well, not barreling), in the rain, pretty chilly. Because there were a couple other guys who I enjoy playing with who were going out, as well.
