Golf

Anyone who knows me knows my fanatical love for golf. If I had the time and the money, I’d play golf every single day for the rest of my life. Unfortunately, I don’t have the time or money, so when I do get to golf, it’s a treat. But I don’t just take it lightly. I love to keep my stats and try to figure out how to get better. One of my big goals is to play golf competitively. Two years ago, I played on the Golf Channel Amateur Tour in Long Island, and loved it. I only played in four tournaments because they were pretty expensive to enter, but even though my game suffered under the pressure, I loved every minute of it. I can’t get enough. I also can’t wait to introduce Brooklyn to the game of golf. I won’t force her to play if she doesn’t want to, but I really hope she does.

Every year, I like to look back at how my game progressed or digressed, but I’m always looking for a place to keep my stats. Last year, I started a golf blog, called Adventures of a Golfaholic, but it was too time intensive to keep up. So that’s why I’m going to use this space to keep my stats, some golf photos, and maybe even some course reviews. If you’re not into golf, please feel free to check out the rest of this site.
