Happy New Year everyone. Today, being the day when everybody makes those New Year's Resolutions that they never keep, I'd like run this by some "Golfers" before I decide what to do. I'm 76 now and for my entire life, Baseball, Tennis, and Golf have been my sports. I'm athletic and I was good in my three chosen sports. (I played college baseball and had a Men's 50's USTA Ranking) Certainly not Professional good, but above average for an amateur. It has always been my good fortune to have excellent coordination, tempo, and form in the sports that I played. Because of that, at my age now, I look like a much better golfer than I am! I'm a good ball striker but the "Pretty Swing" does not produce the yardage now that it did back in the day. I'm thinking that it is time to....."Tee it Forward." I recently relocated to Texas and my home course has 4 sets of Tees. The Tips are black, and then, Blue, White, and Red. I have been playing the Blues. The situation is: If I play the Blues, I might hit 3 or 4 GIR. If I play the Whites, I'll hit considerably more because my Tee shot is usually within 5 yards or so from the Black and White Striped 150 Yard Marker Pole. I'm extremely accurate and seldom miss left or right. But when playing from the Blues, I'm short on the approach more than I care to admit. It is without question, "Yardage" that I have lost! Does that sound like its time to Tee It Forward? I'm old, but once I get to the 150 Yard Pole, I can compete with anybody! What do you think? Stay on the Blues another year or move up to the Whites?
