Like the weather this time of year, our fortunes on the golf course can change in a blink of an eye. A poor or lucky bounce can turn a birdie into an other with no remorse. This unknown factor is just one reason I love golf. An this is the reason why I am excited to play my first round of 2022 tomorrow at Osprey Links Golf Course.>!–more–>
The surprise of being able to play came quick. I was anticipating no playing until May, but the course has dried up enough to play the back nine. My mindset of waiting to play golf this year did a 180° about turn to get ready time is short. Of course, I have been anticipating this announcement for weeks and my equipment is clean and ready to go. It is going to be a great day on many levels.
For tomorrow, I have zero expectations. Hitting the links is all about reconnecting with my friends, playing golf, and enjoying the moment. The score is irrelevant as I likely will only play 9 holes (that is a game day decision). Regardless, my 2022 golf season is starting I am a truly grateful I can play another year.
I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links!

I am glad you are getting out for the first time and enjoy yourself. We have been luckier in this part of Ontario and I have played almost every day since my home course opened April 11.
This week has been typical April weather with Wednesday being the coldest at 2 degrees C for the high and today was sunny and 15. On Wednesday, the three of us pretty well had the course to ourself. I like to think of myself as a fair weather golfer, albeit with low standards 😀.
Today was our third Hickory Friday, a beautiful sunny 15C with light winds. Two weeks ago, it was 10C, with 40kph winds with gusts to 80kph. I shot the same score both days (83), go figure.
Sunday is World Hickory Golf Day and we have 56 players registered including representatives from Golf Canada and the Golf Journalists Association of Canada.
We are making plans to come to North Bay in mid August. I hope we can get to play again.
