The legacy

My goal in life right now is to better my golf game. Ultimately, I’d like to be a legitimate 5 or below handicapper. In the next few weeks I am working very hard to practice up for the US Amateur Public Links Qualifier here at the Orchards. I’ve entered the thing with no real hopes or aspirations of qualifying, in fact my only real goal is to break 90 both days. (180) The cut to qualify will likely be 142 or better.

This morning I shot a sloppy 41. That’s a generous score considering then umber of free drops I gave myself because of the big storms we’ve had. The course is in the worst condition I’ve seen it and it wasn’t much fun to play today. I plan on going to the range a little this afternoon to work on long irons.

In other news, tonight I am talking about legacies. It’s got me really thinking about “what will my legacy be?” Or on a bigger scale, “will I have a legacy?” I’ll be asking people today on the YS boards that question and post some responses.

Why I am starting this?

Perhaps many people start a blog because they are trying to prove to the world just how smart they are? Perhaps others do it so they can feel like someone is listening to them? Perhaps others do it as a way to share what’s going on in their lives.

But why am I doing this? Mostly as a way to share with myself, just what is going on. I’m not going to use this as a platform for anything else but… Well, whatever I feel like posting. Quotes. Golf scores. Youth Group talks. Carry-over rants. Interesting articles. Stories about the kids. Whatever I want!
