Afternoon on the Links

My goodness golf is a humbling endeavor. I shot my worst game of the season yesterday but still managed to have fun.

I swear I have seen all body types play well but I may be the exception. I started golf late in life; I am barrel chested and short. All this makes it difficult for me to make a full fluid swing. A short choppy swing can work if properly harnessed, but you’ll never be as good as the full fluid folks.

Actually lanky women have the most beautiful golf swing. Michelle Wei’s swing is a thing of beauty.

So, my short barrel chested butt hooked up with a CPA buddy of mine and two guys we met from Vermont. They were nice guys and decent golfers. Both guys had moved down to Charlotte to escape the long cold winters. One said that life was too short to stay inside 8 months out of the year.

I am beginning to appreciate our winters more after talking to so many from different latitudes. A miserable winter day here is 38 and rainy. We might get a 4 inch snow or worse and more likely an ice storm. But these storms are rare occurrences.

But all in all it was a good day. It was a little warm but there were good friends to talk to, the bills are paid and it was Friday. Not bad.
