Flashback to 1998. It’s the spring of my junior year at St. Louis Park High. After 2 months of hitting balls at the driving range with the other kids interested trying out for the golf team, it was time to play a real course. I had only done Par 3’s up to this point, and never really owned or used a driver, but I liked playing with Jurisz and Grant Lazer the past few years so I figured why not try. (editor’s note: I tried, and failed)
Flash forward to today. It has been 10 years since I picked up a golf club not tipped with green rubber to hit a into a windmill or clown’s mouth. I haven’t even done a par 3, let alone more in over a decade. But I’m getting old and its time to pick things up where i left off. My body can’t take the wear and tear of Ultimate and Football like it used to, so I decided to go out and get a new set of clubs and start playing golf again like other business-savvy professionals in the norm. Last weekend I did an Executive 9 with Shkonik and Rozinka, and definitely remembered why I played growing up. Golf is damn fun. Now that I spent a small fortune on a new set, I plan to make good use of them. So who out there would like to get a tee time together this summer? If I knew what a handicap was, I’d give it to you but I have no idea. I just know I am better than I thought and need some good excuses to get out and play some more while the summer is young. Any takers?
