“golf is deceptively simple and endlessly complicated; it satisfies the soul and frustrates the intellect. it is at the same time rewarding and maddening – and it is without a doubt the greatest game mankind has ever invented.”
– arnold palmer
it’s been a minute since i’ve posted anything on here. some of you might have been wondering where i’ve disappeared to or maybe you haven’t (it won’t hurt my feelings if it’s the latter). this summer i’ve become a bit golf obsessed which i tell my girlfriend is a good thing because it keeps me off the streets and off of hard drugs (that’s a joke btw). i have this crazy goal that i want to become scratch sometime in the next 2-3 years and play a qualifying round for the us open. the big problem is that i’m currently 9.1 handicap index points away from said goal and my game is nowhere near as close as it needs to be. the bottom line is that i have a lot of work left to do. with that said, i’ve started a new blog to chronicle my golf exploits (and obsession). it’s called notes from the range and you can access it here. i’ll still be posting on to take the train from time to time, but if you really want to know what i’m up to, please check out notes from the range.
