With only 24 weeks until Christmas, we in the northern climes understand that the cool weather and white precipitation is only 16 weekish away. There is no time to waste as I have a few more golf goals to accomplish before the end of our season some time in October. I am not getting twitchy, but I feel the clock pounding in the background as I write this post!
I have already accomplished many things this year like:
- actually playing
- entering in tournaments
- shooting 1 of 5 eagles
- walking the course regularly
- playing some different courses in my area
This is all well and good, but it is not enough! As my passion is ignited like a fiery phoenix each spring, I am not ready for my season to fall to ashes as it does every year. I still have the following to accomplish:
- win a golf tournament
- shoot more eagles
- break par
- play a few more local courses
- have fun
- continue to be grateful
- shoot a hole in one
- lower my handicap under 5
- have fun
- help out for events at my golf course (this one is in progress)
As you can see, I have much to do in a very short time. It seems that things are a feast or famine, but that is the way of short golf season. I am grateful for a core group of friends who help me accomplish my goals and that is really helps. Of course, my wife is an angel as she supports all my golf passions and encourages me to “go golfing”! I am truly blessed and grateful for my family and friends.
I realize it is the middle of July and there is a fair bit of play left and many of my Canadian followers are rolling their eyes. I will mention that just 8 short weeks ago, there was still snow on the ground. So, I am no too far off!
All joking aside (except for my goals yet to accomplish), golf season is in full swing. I am enjoying all my time on the links and will continue to express gratitude for being able to play at regularly. There is plenty of time to loop the course and I plan to take full advantage of each outing.
I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links!
