What Do You Do for a Living?


Recommended Posts

I was in Enterprise software for years, moved over to cybersecurity 8 years ago. I finally reached my financial goals and retired July 4th. Now I practice golf daily and play 2-3 times weekly.

Sometimes being "Pushed Out" can be a good thing.

Oh no doubt. I think it was the best thing that could have happened. I went from being on salary and giving away an average of 10-15 hours a week In OT to getting paid for all the hours I work. Also no more stress of being in charge of people. All I worry about now is my performance. No more asking for time off. I work when I want and if I need to be off I just don’t work that day.

Glad it is working for you.  I'm similar to you.  As long as I make sure my clients are covered & can do what I please.  On Monday @ 8am I got a call that a group needed a fourth for an outing at a really nice course and I was able to juggle the calendar and had a great day golfing a course I would not normally play.

Retired from 38 years of management  in building materials industry. Wife too young to retire just yet. 6 months later I was back at work in the trenches at the County Road Commission. (Low stress, lots of PTO, great bennies, crap pay, but I'm getting paid to exercise, love it.)

I work as a Firefighter/Emt, along with running a small cattle operation as a hobby. Being a firefighter allows me 2 days out of every 3 for golf so I’ve gotta say it’s the best job around.....

    • I've been Playing Golf for: 4 years My current handicap index or average score is: 85 My typical ball flight is: Draw/hook The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: Hook/push/slice Hi everyone, I changed to an in to out path in order to learn to draw and I developed a very nasty hook over the last 18 months (also flipping wrists at impact at times which I am learning to reduce). Now that I've been trying to change it I've been hitting some fades but I would like to know what you all think of the swings in this video. Unfortunately, no ball so I don't know where these would have gone. I'm relatively happy with the backswing and I think there is something about the downswing and release which is causing me issues. I want to learn to change this path to in-to-in and get back to hitting straight! After working on steepening the path a little a couple of weeks back, I started slicing my drives after hitting them pretty straight or with a draw for 18 months, and I've included one horrible one in this post which started straight and went way right. I can see that there's a lot of out-to-in on the path of that one and would also love a couple of ideas of how to bring that back to straight if possible. I've found that hitting with confidence has straightened it out towards the end of my last round, but I was still hitting a bit out-to-in. Overall the combination of these videos show where I am at. Trying to get back to hitting straight after dabbling in the world of horrible hooks with the odd lovely draw.  https://youtu.be/3k_zppbWl3w https://youtu.be/gvHuY36k9T4 https://youtu.be/E_z77EKNrZo Thanks a lot in advance for any advice you can give!     Videos:   
    • But I still want to know how we can tell the vaccinated from the unvaccinated? Will the latter be wearing a scarlet letter "U"  on their chest?
    • My previous driver was a Callaway xr16, which was a very good driver for me. Whenever I tried adjusting to the draw position for some reason my drives went horrible. I would pull hook drives, have problems getting elevation on my drive, maybe it was all in my head or whatever but I just couldn't hit my driver in the draw bias setting. When I put it back into the neutral setting everything was great. My new Maverick Max driver I initially put it in the neutral setting and have never changed it out of that because of past experience, and it works so well for me as is. If I have driving issues I would try to work it out at the range or get some coaching and leave the adjustment in neutral. I really don't like that kind of attempt of getting help by adjusting a driver out of neutral.
    • As of 9am today Michigan has opened up most things for people that are vaccinated.   People that are fully vaccinated aren't required to wear a mask unless still required by the business.
