I’ve been wondering lately, as I’ve written down some annual and long term goals for myself, what exactly is this blog good for? Hmmm…
It’s been really fun to write and to hear from some of you from time to time. It’s clear that I’m a pretty bad golfer, but that I really do enjoy it quite a bit. Right now, playing a round of golf is the closest I can get myself to a real “zen” moment – the game simply demands that you be completely present at all times. I think that’s what I love most about it.
I think the answer to my question though, is that this blog is good for new golfers and bad golfers alike. I hope that it reflects back the best of why you play golf and occasionally makes you smile, laugh or even learn something.
So for now, I think I’ll stick with my random and sporadic approach; posting on things that are interesting to me and complaining about my lack of focus, inability to hit a soft chip shot and my horrible putting game.
