I can honestly say that it is a challenge to find something to write about when we are in lock down for another two weeks. We were lucky enough to play two rounds in early April, but since all I have to dwell on are my memories of playing golf. I realize that I am in the same boat as many Ontarians, yet it is starting go get a bit monotonous waiting for the courses to open. The real draw back is that I think I am running out of material to write about!
I do like sharing my stories about my golf exploits, however I like to make them relevant to the topic of the article. I like to read other blogs, articles, news, and non-related golf topics to find inspiration. However, with the weather nice enough to play, living vicariously through other means is not really what I had in mind for my 2021 golf season.
It is crazy that we still have two more weeks before the course MIGHT be open. Unless the COVID spikes drop, this date might be soft at best. I do understand the big picture and safety is of paramount concern; so, I will patiently wait for things to settle down.
My calm approach is starting to hurt my golf game. My passion for golf is not waning, but is a struggle to light the spark of inspiration. So, today’s topic is a bit of whine and rant; for that I am sorry. Have no fear, I will not stop writing and I hope that I do not repeat myself too much.
After working in my yard (which is now my new favourite past time) I find it difficult to pick up my golf clubs because I am generally beat. The temperatures are not quite hot yet, but we are getting there. When it does, I can see me chipping a bit more at least. Then I should have more material for sharing….but we shall see.
There is no reason for the picture except Windsor was so cute as a puppy! He does have a sympathetic look on his face and I am taking that as a positive thing. My daughter’s puppy is now 1.5 years old and about 70 pounds. He still considers himself a lap dog, but I am not so sure anymore. Well, this was not golf related, yet fun to write about.
Enough stalling. My ramblings for today have come to an end. I am still struggling for golf topics and I hope I have not wasted your time. If you have any that you think would help your game, drop me a line in the comments section and I will see what I can do about putting my thoughts on paper to answer your questions.
I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links!
Update since I wrote this article from a few hours ago: “Tory MPPs were told earlier this week that golf courses will remain closed until at least June 2 as part of the lockdown measures designed to curb the spread of COVID-19.” (Source) We will have to wait and see what actually unfolds.
