    46 and counting DC. I find golf easier now than ever before but can't score a damn. I can hit it so fekin flush it scares me but I haven't really sussed out why I can't score very well any more. I remember the days when I could land a wedge 8 ft left of the pin and spin it back and right to 2 ft from 100bucks off a sloping lie whilst hitting it out of the toe by mistake. Now I can flush it over the back and take 3 from there to make an easy boagster. I reckon when I stopped paying and started practicing on da range I lost something which I cannot recover. I see it with a lot of my peers from back in the day as well.

    There game is such a metaphor for life, I sometimes can't believe it's happening. I just went 65 which means I have been at this silly game 50 years, having started as a boy of fifteen. I noticed little to no difference until about 55, and then recently a SCARY loss of distance, feel and balance. Yet another reminder of my 'back nine" status in life. Ive take to YOGA to try to alleviate the balance and feel thing but, truth be told, I know my golf race has been run. But I was blessed to be born to this breed, and it doesn't take a crystal ball to know, I'm gonna go out swinging when I go

    Keep on swingin biguy! I've loved and hated this game in equal measures at different times but I know we'll never part. It's in my blood and it ain't goin nowhere! But I sometimes wish we could go back to the nostalgia days of Miller/Watson/Nicklaus when I was a wee boy watching my heroes - somehow the world seemed a nicer place back then...

    I hope you get some stength back, DC.

    I see no reason, with the Man upstairs' help, I can't be a better player than I have ever been and wear some 32s soon as this shoulder will let me at it!

    Fast backswing, caddie yard grip, and a pocket full of money.
