Ok... So my wife is packed and ready to leave for Phoenix for the next 12-days.  She is taking our dog.  I'm going to be a bachelor for 2wks.  No business trips on the calendar.  O.M.G.  This is going to be fun!

1.) Wake up every morning at 4:30 AM.

2.) Take a shower.

3.) Do 200 presses.

4.) Eat breakfast.

5.) Drive to the course.

6.) Tee off (by 5:30 AM) and finish my round by 9.

7.) Home by 9:15.... Work.

8.) Lunch at 11:45 AM

9.) Do 200 presses.

10.) Finish work by 4:30 PM.

11.) Eat dinner.

12.) Drive to the range.... Be there from 5:30 until 8:30 practicing all facets of my game.

13.) Home by 8:45.

14.) 45min workout (Crossfit)

15.) Shower and in bed by 10 PM.

Rinse.

Repeat.

Holy ....I think I can get 8hrs+ of golf in a day for the next two weeks!!!

I belive I could sleep in a little longer and still get a round in.  My days are not as busy as yours when i'm off work though.  Either way it is still awesome to be able to get in that much golf a week, especially for two weeks straight.  Hell, I wish I had the time to get in three or four a week!

I was about to remark on how awesome that was until I realized that that could be everyday for me and it's not. :-)

SIgn me up!  Well, for Thursday at least ... I don't know if I could even do that 2 days in a row, let alone 2 weeks!  And I still think we're going to need flash lights for the first hole.

Ha!  We will need a spotter on the first hole.  After that... We're golden.

I'm a bachelor for the next two weeks as well.

LOTS of golf and practicing going to go on.

And lots of work.

And, because I am who I am, really that'll be about it. :P

If only I lived in San Diego. :)

All I can say is, YOU ARE NUTS!! What are you on crack or something? How can you possibly have that much energy to do all that?

I maybe would have half of that energy, but back when I was 15 years old, and it was hormones teenage monster energy.

I bet after the first day, you will be too tired to wake up at 4:30am on Tues.

Please report back to us. I wanna know if you can keep to that crazy schedule.

Assuming that today was the first day, he'd better not be!  I will be dragging my fat butt out of bed tomorrow at 4:30 to meet him at the course for another schooling!

(But unlike Beach, this will likely be the only time in the next 2 weeks that I will be up before 6am.)

But I do agree that he should document the entire 12 days here.

Somewhat related, I should be able to do something similar. I work for myself and go in to the office during normal hours, maybe a little later than most. My normal day looks like 9:30/10am until 4/4:30pm. I'm in software, so I don't really interact with customers in the typical way most do and I'm also completely solo. I genuinely could work in the middle of the night and have no effect from working 9am-5pm. Two nights a week my wife works, so I do have to pick up the kids by a certain time and be the "single parent" until she gets home but aside from that my week is quite flexible. There's no reason I can't get up and go golfing every single morning, be home by noon, have lunch, work from 12-5pm, spend time with my family, then finish off the day from 9pm-12. I just don't. Part of it is that my physical office is across town so basically I'd have to commit to working from home, which can be problematic when the wife and 3 kids are here 3 days a week. I'm not sure why I don't structure my days a little differently, but I just never have in the last year or so I've been doing this. Crazy, huh?

Maybe he wakes up at the time regularly, not everyone sleeps in until noon.  Waking up at the crack of dawn isn't that hard to do if your body is used to it.

8/1/12

OK - yesterday was the first half day with the wife gone.  She left at noon with the dog.  The house was dead... Work was complete, so I went to the range in the afternoon at 4:30.  Hit a medium bucket of balls, then played 9 holes twilight... Tee'd off by 5:15 PM and was finished with 9 by 7:30 (the course is slow as hell where I play).

I probably could of squeezed in another four holes, but instead - went to the putting green and worked on my stroke from 7:30 until dusk which was a little after 8.

I went and picked up some dinner at a little local Italian joint, went home and ate, and watched a few minutes of the Golf Channel.  Had some PGA updates going on and then after I finished up eating... I did my crossfit workout.  Was wrapped up by 9:30.  Jumped in the shower and called the wife.  Was in bed by 10:15.

8/2/12

4:30 AM alarm went off.  Did my presses and jumped in the shower.  Grabbed a small breakfast to take with me to the course, and was there by 5:10 for a 5:30 tee time.  Played 18 with Golfindad... Had four 3-putts (note to self - practice my short putts)... And shot an 81.  Was pissed off at myself... But the silver lining was that I hit some very nice iron shots and hit 66.7% of my GIR.

My fairways %'s were low (28%) - but they were just barely off to the side on most holes. So not bad from tee to green - but just absolutely terrible with my putter.  On one Par 3... It was severely sloped from right to left - and back to front (uphill)... I was down in front - putting uphill with a right to left break.  About 50ft away.  I hit the putt hard enough that it probably would've went 25ft by the hole (LOL)... It hits the hole dead center - jumps about 3ft in the air and lands to the left of the hole - then runs down the slope about 20ft away.  Then I proceed to miss that 20ft uphill putt - and have a tap in for a bogey 4.  That was probably the worst putt I've made recent history - maybe ever?!

We finished 18 holes by 8:50... And I was able to jump on a con call at 9.  So far, today's been running as planned!  Gonna head to the range this evening and hopefully find my confidence with my putter at the practice green?!

And I played like doodoo as well.  Putting was fine for me ... didn't make anything, but didn't 3 putt either.  Everything else, yikes.  Need to go back to the range.(86 for me)  [EDIT:  Just went back and looked at my stats ... I actually hit 50% fairways, which is pretty darn good for me, but the bad news was, the fairways I missed, good god did I miss.  I hit one 3 wood literally 40 degrees right of target.  ... And I hit 3 greens.  Sweet.]

Good news is, we played 18 and I was in the office by 9:30.

Oh, and there was a little light when we teed off ... from a full moon, and a little maintenance tractor parked in the first fairway with lights shining on the aiming stick.  The sun wasn't actually witnessed until, I believe, the 5th hole (maybe it was 4, I can't remember)
