This Game Is Tough,
I’m desperately trying to figure out something positive regarding my first step forward. I may have to go with the “step”.
My first round Tuesday from the 6,800 yard course at Breakers Rees Jones, Sunbelt Seniors Tour, in the cold and just brutal winds of 30+ was an ouch = 80. 10 pars & 8 bogeys.
I have to tell you, I had no chance as the cold weather sent the nerves off and I just couldn’t even come close to making a shoulder turn which equals disaster. As you can imagine, I’m limited with a shoulder turn now and the cold just made it tougher.
The score itself is not a complete disaster if you consider how nasty it was out there. The 2nd day was even harder, and when I lost a ball up by the green on 16 I just didn’t have it in me to go back and replay another one. I was well on my way to a mid-80 and was hurting worse than the first day. No real excuse but I was just zapped. I clearly got the message that I will never be able to play quality golf in bad weather again.
With that being said I am not throwing in any hankies just yet. I intend to regroup and play in the Fort Myers “Coors Light Open” event next weekend. I do hope that normal weather does reappear soon.
I’ve been taken a godzilla amount of pills these past few days so my normal humor is comatose at the moment.
I don’t have any new news from my friends at PGA headquarters, although I was promised a update call today which I never received. I don’t understand why people say one thing and then don’t execute. Since I said ‘I do’ twice and didn’t, I must realize there was a valid reason. I still refuse to believe the right thing will not be done in regards to me getting my major medical year exemption given to me so I will not open my mouth any more and explain all the facts. Kind of like a lawsuit. Can’t wait for those facts either!!
Good day my friends and the best to all,
