An e-mail from the City of Dayton suggests I should be receiving my refund very soon. So that brings up a question. What do I do with it?
The original plan, when a full slate of KHMA events was presumably going to occur, was to spend the cash for a combination of lessons, shoes and a driver. Well, we got the new shoes last Friday. Soon the golf budget will have the cash to buy the driver, but does blowing that money on a driver still make sense?
It's almost June. I've got absolutely no events to look forward to at this point. If I'm just going to banging the ball around Miami Shores casually, what difference does getting a fancy, expensive driver make anyway?
While having no men's association, Miami Shores hosts a couple of events that could be entered supposing COVID doesn't cancel them. Of course, my game isn't really up to it at the moment. There is a County Championship in early September that I could shoot for theoretically.
For that matter, I've not actually bothered to get my ghin paid up and updated yet. The $30 bucks is nothing, but is even tracking the HI more trouble than its worth at this point?
So with 80% of my Dayton pass on its way back to me, its either:
1) Reallocate the cash to other budgets, figure on just keeping golf really casual this year and forgetting about handicap indexes,
2) Set the County Championship as an actual goal, spend the money, buy the driver, get lessons and work toward it
3) Just get the HI sorted, get some lessons and see what I can do without fussing over the driver or any competitions.
