A Fun and Relaxing Weekend of Golf!

27 May

With all the pressure, seriousness, and stress that goes with playing college golf I think I had forgotten why I really love playing golf and why I still play. At times this year I viewed golf more as a job than as a fun game. And because of this I didn’t play as well as I would have hoped.

This weekend I was reminded why I love golf. I played the last 3 days at my home club, Birmingham CC, and loved every minute of it. No pressure, no coaches, just playing and having fun.

Friday night I played with two of my best friends, who I’ve played with since I was 11. We went out at 6:30, played 18 holes, had a couple beers, placed a few wagers (which I ended up losing) and just had a good time. We weren’t really focused on how we were playing, we just enjoyed each other’s company.

Today I played with my lil bro Jason who’s 16 and his friend. We only played nine hole and kinda goofed around on the course. It was a great time and I actually played really well.

For the first time in a while I really enjoyed being out on the course and playing. I enjoyed the great weather and good company. I ended up playing well because I wasn’t putting any pressure on myself. I needed a weekend like this to remind myself to not get too serious about golf and enjoy it for what it is… a game!

    It seems a lot of fun. I always want to start to learn how to play golf. But I don’t know how to start. Any suggestions?

    I’m a competitive ice dancer, and have recently – for the second time in two years – found myself at a crossroads in my skating career where things seemed unsure, confusing, and just plain frustrating. However, both times my career hung in jeopardy, I forced myself onto the ice the next day and just skated for the enjoyment of it. It’s important to hold on to this and remember why you love the sport. If you ever stop having fun, then it really isn’t worth continuing anymore (at least in my opinion). For me, both times I’ve been reminded of how much I just love the feel of skating, the expressiveness of it, and the joy of it. I’m glad you had the opportunity to rediscover this about golf!
