It is about time I made an appearance at my local golf course. The owner and staff at Osprey Links are second to none as they have offered unwavering support throughout my treatments. The customer service alone would be the reason I will return in 2019. My plan is to head to the course on Monday or Tuesday, grab a cart and loop a couple of holes with my friends. I doubt I will be swinging my clubs fully, but I figure I could take my putter and wedge and hack around the green with the boys. This will be a great first step and do wonders for my mental state.
I know the guys will be happy to see me out on the course and will not balk at me playing a bit. Of course this is out of the norm and I have to aware of the other players on the course. So, I have imposed a few restrictions as not to disrupt the flow of play:
- If someone is waiting to hit, do not chip or putt.
- If open, chip only from 10 yards from the green.
- No putts longer that 25 feet.
- Tend the flag for the players.
- Have fun.
I realize I will be excited to hit the links, but it is important to keep my head and be aware of those players trying to enjoy their round. As much as I would like my first outing to be all about me, it can’t be. So I will fit in where I can and be grateful I am out on the links.
I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links!
