“Back in 1965, Sports Illustrated said I was going to be the next Arnold Palmer”

“Hey everybody, we’re all gonna get laid!”

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?
