They both kinda sound like fun. I think I'd likely score better on the fast flatter green. It might take some time to get used to the speed. The slower more undulated green would be fun for me and some of my golf buddies. So, I'd definitely take option 1 ... unless I took option 2. I'd choose both or neither. So, I'm not going to sit on the fence. Unless I'm already sitting on the fence.... maybe?
Among my goals for 2021, as I wrote quite a long time ago, was to create some reality with thoughts of shooting my age while I'm still 72. The combination of age and it representing even par would be more meaningful to me.
That isn't going to happen, not that I don't still have until May of 2022. Physical issues with bone spurs in my shoulders and a big flare up of sciatica have reduced my hopes, (I can't consider them goals yet), to simply be able to play without pain.
I'm doing physical therapy and played 9 holes yesterday for the first time in nearly 3 months. When I hit my tee shot on the first hole, I got emotional in front of a bunch of people. I probably looked pretty stupid, but I didn't care.
It's great to have goals, but with apologies for sounding way too fatherly to you younger folks, don't ever take simply being able to play this great and ancient game for granted. The joy of the game should be our number 1 goal.
