I really like to golf. This is probably a function of my old age. Golf doesn’t hurt me and it’s a great release from any work stress. I don’t have any goals in terms of scores; rather, my goals this year were to get golf shoes and to be fitted for clubs.
I went to the Salt Lake Golf show today and found some clearanced Nike golf shoes for less than $40. Got ’em.
I have a decent set of Cleveland irons that I’ve used for 3 years now. I’m a fairly tall guy but these clubs are of standard length. I’ve had to adjust my swing to account for the shortness of the clubs and my height. I went into Uinta Golf today and got a proper fitting. After some measurements and swings for the pro, he suggested I extend my irons an inch and a half. I love that they can extend clubs rather than me having to buy a whole new custom set of irons. They take the grips off, add a “plug” of sorts to the end of the shaft, and then re-grip the clubs. I’m excited to give them a try.
Now if only I could get some time to hit a round! I know, Keith, no golf until basement is done. Luckily, while I sit on the computer I have a guy in the basement doing the mud and tape job! I go from never hiring out home improvement work to hiring two separate contractors during this basement project (plumber and drywall mudder).
