My Golf Scores Suffer

First I want to tell you that most of these events occurred previously and the tails about my current golfing scores have been occurring over the summer. It is October as I post these but the current events happened June, July, August and September of 2010.

If you are just now starting to read my blog I would advise that you go to the beginning and read back up to current so that you understand what I am talking about. Or if you want to jump ahead to “the Perfect Golf Swing Tips”

==========================

My golf scores are terrible and I am hacking my way to the basement.

I am sorry if you are a person that plays in the 100′s or even in the 90′s and are happy with your golf scores but I had fallen from the very pinnacle down to the very bottom as far as I was concerned.

A very good thing happened, I got a job as a contract employee with a very large firm. I was being paid a fairly decent amount of money and was happy to be employed. It was a forty hour per week job but the drive was terrible. At first I took the most well know way and I was driving 55 miles one way and over an hour of travel time. Sometimes my drive time was almost two hours, one way, due to accidents or weather.

Then I tried other ways home, so I would not get lost going to work. Got the mileage down to 42. Then the primary road I should have been taking was finally finished rebuilding and my miles driven dropped to 33 miles one way.

Again, I was putting money in the bank and only played about 5 or 6 times that year. I could of afforded to play more but I hated my golf swing and I for sure hated my golf scores.

So, I would golf with friends or family and hoped they would not make fun of me and my golf score. I knew they would make fun of me because I had dropped so far down. Poor golfer and unemployed or sometimes employed hot shot engineer. Actually, I had not done much engineering for a long time as I had been a manager over the last 9 years in my last two jobs and only managed the business.

I was more an accountant then an engineer as I tried to control budgets and profits along with quality of our products. So when you look at what I experienced over the past 12 years you can understand how I consider myself “the mighty has fallen”. A golfer that was in the top 1% of all golfers and a Manager that was in the top 5% of employees with responsibilities and income.

Another change occurs. See you in my next post.
