For The Love of Golf
There are few people in the world who love golf as much as I do. No question about it. Golf isn’t just a game, it’s simultaneously an art, an exercise of intense concentration, a test of endurance, and a cathartic stroll through God’s most majestic, scenic creations. Golf is a joy.
After being a once-every-two-years hack that often featured loud screaming antics accompanied by flailing irons, I finally decided to give golf a chance in 2010 when playing hoops anymore was just too painful. I studied the game. I took lessons. I analyzed video of my swing (which often induced a gagging reflex) and made adjustments. But most importantly, I hit countless buckets of balls on the range and did my best to squeeze in a round of golf almost every Saturday morning during the playing season. Reps. I needed reps. And over time I learned to love the game while learning to play it better. My 20+ handicap has over the years dropped to 9.6 resulting in an even greater playing experience. But I continue to grind it out to lower my index.

My 1,500 square foot, self-built backyard putting green. Real bentgrass. I mow it daily and roll it a couple days a week to keep it rolling fast.
