With just over a month to go before opening season and I feel now is not the time to change my normal preparation routine. Of course, world events have shocked everyone, but I am hoping that it will be business as usual (tongue in cheek) at my local golf course. Fortunately, we still have about 4 or 5 weeks before opening day and I am hoping that some resemblance of normal will return. Regardless, I am continuing my preparation to ensure that I am ready for my first swing at Osprey Links Golf Course.
I will have to admit that my preparation up to this point has not been as diligent as I hoped. I am hitting balls into my driving net and using my orange whip/peel, but the other things like stretching and cardio seems to be lacking. Well, that all changes today. It is important to ensure that I take a well rounded approach to playing golf early in the spring.
As I prepare for a full season on the links, I reached out to Jeff Rogerson, Managing Director and GM at Osprey Links, to see how things were progressing for opening day. He indicated that some things will have to change in the club house to address the current medical challenges around the world, but is hopeful that everything will be in working order come 15 April (my date not his). Of course he indicated that everyone is still on the ‘wait and see what happens mode’ and will update things as time progresses.
As I get ready for my golf season, one of my regular playing partners is down south with Mickey playing as we speak. I appreciate Rick sending my some motivational pictures, but I am not sure I would not be distracted by the cart!
I am still preparing for my 2020 golf season. I think it is time to pick up my socks and get serious. But, I will tell you that swinging the clubs almost everyday is a blessing and I am grateful to have the room to practice. Golf season is only a month away and I will be ready.
How about you?
I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links!
