Weather Forecast


Teeing off without getting teed-off


If the past few day’s recent weather is any inclination, summer is nearing its end and soon the brisk chill of fall will be upon us.

For devout golfers, their days to play a round of 18 are numbered and many will be hitting the courses hard to get a few more games in. For me, I am more than ready to pack it in.

I made a goal for myself this summer; to learn the game of golf to the best of my ability and to learn to enjoy it. I am not sure I succeeded too well at either.
