Many of us have specific transition days. Obviously, to embrace those days, there must be a closure day. And for me, today is one of those days. It allows me time to reflect on what was accomplished in the 365 days with an eye to what I want to create moving forward. So, as I say good bye to 2019, I am look forward to the 2020 golf season.
Thinking back to last years season (more detailed review to come), I basically am grateful for playing at all. After a crazy health scare in 2018, I enjoyed playing golf with my friends and embraced all the shots – good and bad. Yes, I wish I could have made a few more great shots, but overall I cannot complain. Complaining would not be fair to the joyous times I had on the links.
Having said that, it is time to say goodbye. As my golf game and life continues to evolve, I learned that any transition takes time and focused intent to make anything happen. This thought will be the cornerstone of my 2020 golf game. I will methodically approach changes and embrace the journey of change. Life on and off the links is going to be awesome!
On this final day of 2019, I have no regrets. Life is fantastic and I am encouraged to see what 2020 has to bring.
I recently ran a poll and found that throwing clubs (at least once in their career) was not that uncommon. We all see the professionals launching their tools great distances, but it is not something that is supported by a majority of the fans. I for one do not support it, but understand the frustration that can occur from time to time.
After a long run of playin golf, I often need a day of rest. It is important to recharge my batteries in order to forge ahead to play better golf. I do wonder from time to time if one day is actually enough rest.
Playing golf with friends is always fun. Playing golf with new friends is something I thoroughly enjoy and yesterday I had a chance to expand my circle of grateful golfers. My wife is from a small town in Ontario and recently reconnected with an old friend, Michele. Little did I know I would be the beneficiary of this re-connection as I was invited to golf with her husband Jacques. He brought his brother Gilles and an old mutual friend Glen who I knew from years ago. We decided to meet at the Mattawa Golf and Ski Resort for a quick round and to take the chance to get to know each other.
