Final Look at Birmingham,
Well, it’s over and accomplished I say! I certainly did not make a fool of myself. I’m very proud of myself. Sorry to be so selfish on this point. I know in my heart that my “gang” is so proud that I have fought on and now trying so hard to play really good golf again.
On a technical point, the side hill lies where an absolutely nightmare for me to pull off. I believe they were responsible for about 80% of my errors. Maybe someday I’ll be able to hit pro-like shots from them, but I’m just not ready at the moment. I hit a boat load of good shots. Not as many as illegal’s crossing the border but it’s a goal. The driver was half way decent but I must get stronger and gain some yardage. I really think I can shoot par or better a round or two at Dicks Sporting event. That’s my goal for the moment.
I’m trying so hard to do something good for the game. The people in Birmingham were just awesome. It is the greatest feeling when they say that I have inspired them. It does my heart so much to hear that.
I struggled with Billy this week as that’s where we started our journey last year. It’s bizarre how things hit you at certain places. I really miss them.
Sadly as I skip from point to point, my pain was really bad for the week but I expected trouble as this place was more of a mountain than a golf course. How they shot so low is boggling. I’m here to tell you there were a lot of just really hard holes. OK enough babble – I’m off to get better, stronger, and just veg a bit.
From one golfer, I say good day & enjoy,
