My Best Round To Date In The 2020 Golf Season

Yesterday was Canada Day! To celebrate the birth of our nation I hit the links with my friends Blair and Rick. We teed off early to ‘beat the heat’ and our day of fun in the sun turned out to be my best round of golf in 2020. I did not do anything extra special (or so I thought), yet my short game proved to be the main factor for my success. Truthfully, I am not surprised at my success as this part of my game has improved dramatically due to my early season practice.

Happy Canada Day!

The first of July is special to all Canadians because it is Canada’s Birthday.

Canada is 153 years young! As a Canadian, I have so much to be grateful for; I believe that Canada offers more to its citizens than any country in the world. We are not the biggest, richest, nor most influential, but in my opinion, we are the best! After spending 36 years of my life protecting this great country, I still marvel at its majestic and pristine beauty.

I am heading to the links today to celebrate this awesome occasion.

Happy Canada Day!

I am a grateful Canadian!

It was very enlightening for me and as such, I will use what I learned yesterday to improve my game moving forward.

Nursing a Back Injury

Yup, it is true. For about 5 days, I have nursed a back injury. It happened the last time I was out on the links. After the 16th hole, I felt my back suddenly get tight on the lower right side of my back. Additionally, I felt tightness through out my right hip and as such have kept it cool for the past few days. I actually cancelled two rounds (Wednesday and Thursday) which is rare for me, but it was the smart thing to do! I am on the road to recovery and let me explain what I am doing.

Playing Out Of Trouble On The Golf Course

At least once every round, I am in a position where I feel like I am in trouble. I usually can extricate my ball, but not always. After much thought I have figured out the no fail way always get back in play. I researched, read, watched video and consulted the greats and I now have it! Are you ready for the answer:
