Thinking about shooting my shot again soon. It's been over 7 years.
The day before my cancer surgery, I played 18 at Troy Burne, Tom Lehman's course up in lovely Wisconsin. Wanted to do what I loved on my last day as me with the people I loved doing it with.
I waited for 6 weeks, per doctors orders, to get back golfing. The day it hit 6 weeks (I was counting it down with anticipation) I went out that day to the range hit some balls and was very internally frustrated with my body. It wasn't ready so I gave up on golf and haven't played since. Too painful of a reminder of what I lost and checked out from the game I love.
Time warp for me, I have a set of Adams CMB that were hot back in the day I got them that have been sitting in my bag, never played. Just hit a few times at the frustrating range session that turned me off to golf. Now, those irons are just a footnote in irons history kind of like me and playing golf.
The next nice weekday we have around here I may get back out to the range to test my body again. I know this isn't what I shot-themed, but I've thought about playing now and again and always tell myself today is not that day. Probably isn't anytime soon despite what I wrote I would like to do next week. Been working hard on my body for the first time since my surgery. Down 16lbs and feeling some mental and physical energy not felt in years.
