Looking Back at 2021

Its been too long since I updated this blog but it is March 2022 and time to reconsider goals & plan.  Looking back last year did not achieve much of what I wanted.  I lost most of the weight I was looking for but put some back on over the winter.  I'm not giving up on that, just need to moderate my portions.  As for golf, I did AimPoint as planned and that was time & money well spent.  Putting improved last year but the rest of my game was still inconstant and did not improve as I had hoped.  I did get a good lesson from @iacas in October when he changed my grip.  Unfortunately, this winter was very busy and I did not practice at all so that change is still feeling "Off" and I need to practice it. 

I got to the range for the first time this past Saturday but things went off the rails real quick.  I had hit @ 5 balls with my 7 Iron to warm up when I heard a "Bang" in the parking lot.  I turned and saw someone had backed into my SUV.  He tried to drive off but when he heard my wife scream to people in the lot to stop him and he saw me running into the parking lot he stopped.  Lucky for me I was able to see into the parking lot and get there pretty quick.  Since it was in a parking lot we had to go to the police station to get a Case Number for my insurance.  So much for hitting balls on Saturday.  Good news is the damage is about as minor as possible and insurance will cover 100%.

I'm going to give some thought to my 2022 goals and get those posted soon.  One goal I am putting out there to @iacas @dennyjones @ChetlovesMer @Carl3 @saevel25 and @Chris Brooks and others is to see if we can do another TST Group lesson in Erie.  It was a fun & beneficial.

You should have drove up this way to play on the simulator.    Just today I was thinking about that trip and my priority pieces.   It's a work in process but today I felt that some of that was coming together.  

I'm not opposed to another road trip.   Erik was very accommodating, and the lesson was definitely worth the trip.    Maybe next time I'll get fit for an Edel putter too!

Sorry to hear about your mishap at the driving range. I had a driver push me into a Jersey barrier on my way back from Florida a couple months ago. No injury, but no fun at all.

You two are definitely dedicated coming from Michigan to Erie, but Erik is good! I want to get back to Erie before the season gets into full swing, pun intended.

I wish I would have, I need to focus a little on the Work/Life Balance equation.

I really feel I should spend time practicing what he told me last time before I ask for more advice.  Maybe sometime this spring, just not March/April.  That should give me enough time to get comfortable with the change he already advised.

Get to work on that! And see if this helps.

He tried to drive off

WTF is wrong with people?

Happy to host y'all again, assuming we can find a good time for it. 🙂
