Pathetic and Sad

This hasn’t been the greatest golf season either personally or for Golf is Hard TV!

Let’s start with the personal golf side… I played less than 10 rounds this year, the highlight being a 9-hole round with my daughter. I managed to play 2 great courses while on vacation in Myrtle Beach, but outside of that, I made little to no progress on my game and in fact, probably took a big step backwards. I’ve invested a huge amount of time in coaching travel softball, which is eating up most and all of my free time.

As for Golf is Hard TV, clearly we’ve slacked on doing new shows this past year. Whether that’s a function of burning out from season 1, lack of good ideas or again, simply no time, I’m unsure. Coach (err, Chef) Dave has been busy over at Life is Hard TV most of this year, but we both desperately want to rekindle the momentum we had with the golf show at some point in the future. When.. we don’t know!

If you are still out there, how was the 2010 golf season for you?

GolfisHardTV vs. LifeisHardTV

What is the first thing you usually do when you get off the golf course? Although your options are many, chances are they include grabbing a bite and/or a beverage at the 19th hole, or heading home to finish off your latest home improvement project. Perhaps you need to stop by the wine shop to pick up something nice for your dinner guests? Or maybe you believe that although you just spent 5 hours on the golf course, you didn’t get much real exercise, so you’re off for a workout. Whatever you typically do after a round, be sure to check out first. With close to 40 video posts to date, and many more to come, chances are we talking about something in which you are interested.
