Since “It Happened”

It’s been over two years since “It Happened”, and I finally had surgery on my knee yesterday. They did a scope where they removed some arthritis and then performed microfracture surgery. They drill a bunch of holes through the cartridge into the bone to create a super clot causing it to heal. I can’t put any weight on it for 6-8 weeks which stinks, but I should be ready before the snow melts. He said I will eventually need knee replacement, but this will kick the cam down the road.

Farewell to Golf?

Yesterday was beautiful early spring day in Ohio as is today. It is going to break 70 for the first time this year. Since we are now on DST, I would typically be thinking about going out to play 9 holes after work or cutting out a bit early to get some golf in. I would have normally been on the golf course yesterday for sure, but I am just not feeling it this year. I did a bit of yard work and took the patio furniture out of the shed. While doing that, I saw my golf clubs sitting there, and I ju

    • I read this post as it intrigued me. I then went to update my blog but abandoned it because I wasn't quite into it, but it's been a while. The blogs serve a purpose for both the authors and the reader. I don't read every one, but I do pick and choose topics that interest me.  Now you and Mr No Putts seem to have quite the banter that would probably be a lot of fun on the course. Maybe that could be its own post. 
    • 1. I have not been "in my 70's" very long so I can't really say anything has changed. I think it was somewhere around age 65 that aging overtook technology improvements, and I really became aware of the effects on my game. I have become accustomed to playing more kid's tees. It is still golf, just on a smaller playing field. 2. I am not sure I ever described myself as wealthy. I like the muni's in our area and don't feel I miss out on much not belonging to a private club or teeing it up at
    • Don't mistake Brian for a curmudgeon.   Having met him and played golf with him a few times,  he impresses me a thoughtful and sincere person.    I'll go to bat for him any day.

My suggestions for additional posts as a "life long" golfer - how has your game changed in your 70's and will you embrace fitness - or enjoy the slow decline and be at peace playing from the kid's tees - you seem to play frequently - write about the struggle you mention being comfortably wealthy - but play
