“I want to be a writer should I grow old” – I’ve said that for a long time. Now, looking at my picture on the left, I see it’s time to start typing.
Rumor has it that Mark Twain once advised, “Write about what you know.” I can’t vouch for the rumor, but I do know the advice is good. So, on this blog I’m going to write about golf on Kauai.
I describe myself as “a bogie golfer – on the good days.” All of my posts will be from that perspective. I feel that bogie golfers are ill represented in golf writing. Maybe, if I express myself well, I can add to the voice of the ‘average golfer’ – I would like that.
About his Golf:
Time was I played in weekly skins games – essentially with the same people. I won my share, but there was money involved and people took it seriously – so seriously that they forgot to have fun. I didn’t enjoy it, but that’s okay, I was just in the wrong place playing the wrong game. I decided to change that.
I moved to Kauai. Now mostly I play “resort golf” – it’s a social game. Almost every round is with people I haven’t met before, and that is more fun. In fact ‘fun’ is the objective. A low score is still good, but we strive to get to know each other and enjoy the round. We do more than just hit the ball; we talk, we applaud good shots, we high five, and we laugh – we laugh a lot.
When we have more laughs than putts – it was a good round.
If this seems like a good time to you – come play golf with me.
