The title might be a bit confusing as my golf season ended last month. At this time every year, I take at least three months off without swinging a club. I have the facility in my garage to hit golf balls, but I also like to take the time off to recharge. This year, however, I am taking the time to heal some nagging injuries I played with all summer. I went to my first physio appointment and have some exercises to do a few times a day, but I expect the time away from golf will help with my healing process. It just makes sense to take these three months and to get healthier.
I consider my injuries to be nagging. I was able to play golf, but the repetitive nature of my golf swing did not allow my left elbow or left Achilles tendon to heal as in years past. Not to worry, I expect these injuries to disappear quickly and I will work on building up my strength for the upcoming golf season.
Similar to previous years, I am not walking away from golf completely. I intend to continue writing most days and to watch my favourite YouTube channels. I take this time away from the physical aspects of golf to increase my knowledge and understanding of possible improvement areas. I already have a couple of topics to research that will make their way into an article. You will know that I am expanding my knowledge because these topics are new to me, hence new to The Grateful Golfer.
Lastly, there is always an adjustment period to the dumping of white stuff. Fortunately, our weather is perfect right now and the traditional snow for this time of year has yet to arrive. The longer it stays away the better, but as a Canadian who embraces winter, it is coming.
Until tomorrow, have a wonderful Wednesday. Keep smiling and remember to be grateful.
