A great way to start the new year with a second win with mostly the same team as last year at the annual Snowman Scramble golf tournament. Back next year for a three-peat!

Golfing Days Are Here Again

2nd tee boxSpring has definitely sprung on around the Lower Mainland of B.C. and the surest sign is the bullfrogs coming out of hiding and croaking all night. Another sure sign is more people on the golf course, a good thing as they need as much business as they can get to keep the membership rates as low as they are.

The Year of Golf

the viewThe Year of Golf is going well; just a few months into it now and feeling comfortable enough to start refining how the old bod should move to create a repeatable shot, the principle need of golf. The scorecard regularly ended under 120 is when keeping track started, and the average last week was 111. Can feel the improvement too, regardless of the actual numbers and that’s a really nice feeling.
Getting lots of exercise at the same time, going around the course by myself takes a couple hours and when there are others to follow it’s three, more rest stops waiting. Add in a few hours of walking the dogs and that’s a good day on the feet. With the rest of life in there too just not much time being spent on the computer beyond surfing the net with a feed reader.
