Playing Golf In 2022

Well my 2022 golf season has started. We played our first round yesterday and it went exactly as expected. I shot a few pars, a few bogies and one other. I actually did not keep my score because it did not matter. As in previous years, I felt like Bob Uecker from Major League. The first hole will be a precursor for my year. Yesterday, I had a putt for birdie and lipped out. I am not sure what it exactly means, but my 15 foot birdie putt was the best chance I had at a sub-par score all day.

Do you think it is too early to start preparing for golf season? Well, it might be a bit early to pull out all my clubs and give them a cleaning; yet, I do have the bug to start doing something.

My 2021 Golf Season Is Over

I have decided to put my clubs away for the year! We still have some great weather, but it is time to transition to other activities and start getting ready for winter. This process does take a bit of time because I have to ‘winterize’ my stuff in order to protect it from the blustery days ahead. So, my slow transition of cleaning and storing my golf equipment has begun. My first step was to empty my golf locker (my car); I did not realize how much stuff I actually had squirrelled away. Regardless, it is time to start putting things away……it is a sad day.

My Golf Season Is Quickly Coming To An End

I realize that it is only the first of September, but around here the weather quickly changes. Thus, my play takes a dramatic turn to the left and I play less and less. Additionally, the temperatures can very between the middle of the night and morning, that we will be playing on golf course that is constantly wet with dew. Of course, we may get second summer, but that will not change the fact that it is time for me to start shifting my focus from playing golf to preparing for winter. Can you see my sad face as I write this last line. 😦
