For some reason, I am thinking back to my original post of The Grateful Golfer. It is amazing how far this little block has come. The greatest aspect is the wonderful people I have ‘talked golf’ with over the years. It really has helped with my mental recovery during my health challenges. Thanks to everyone, I am truly grateful.Continue reading
Similar to every year at this time, I am rededicating my efforts to become healthy and fit to improve my golf game. This is a traditional off-season approach to avoid becoming fluffy over the next 6 months.

It was quite an ordeal and today, one year ago, marked the slight improvement in my health after 10 chemo treatments in 6 days with an infusion of my own stem cells.

It was an ordeal for sure and I am bless to have had a fantastic support network, outstanding medical team, and an outlet to think of something other than the dark side of cancer treatments – that being The Grateful Golfer blog!Continue reading
This year is a banner year at the Grateful Golfer. I committed to writing every day and nearly accomplished that goal. I will admit that some of the articles were not as inspirational as I hoped, but that is a goal for next year. The success at The Grateful Golfer is not just about views and visitors, it is about sharing our thoughts on golf in a positive environment. I think we have achieved that goal as well. So what is the big milestone?
