Brand New Here, But Not To Golf

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Howdy all. Just signed up a few days ago. Finally getting back into golf after several months of recuperating from a collision with a drunk driver. After some loss of memory, and  a  few surgeries  I will be playing my first round of golf on a real course within the nest few days. I had been playing golf for the past 40 years at the time of the accident. I made it all the way down to 5 handicap during my best playing days. If I had had more time to play and practice I am pretty sure I could have made it to scratch. I have shot par before on a few courses. Best score was a 70, (4 times) on a par 71 course.   I am self taught, never having taken a lesson. For the past few months I have been working my way back, practicing with the short stuff (150 yards) on a make shift practice range hitting off a mat.  My longer shots will be suspect for a while, but I don't care, as I will be back playing again. Anything under 90 will be most satisfying. I am retired, and my wife and I travel while volunteering at various national parks.  Right now we are in southern Nevada in the Lake Mead area. Hot weather will be good for the healing processes. {:<)
