Why bother?

Don't let left vs right mess with you. It is what it is, and I don't know of many that have been able to improve it with much success. I'm 46/54 as a rule, and I make it work.

Because I enjoyed it when I played a lot, and want back in now that I’m not a yachtie. A lot of my friends, clients, bankers, etc. play. I don’t want to be a hack I want to win when I play.

Summer is over and gone.

Lighten up.

I saw a snake again. Maybe the same one as a couple weeks ago? But this time it was in a much smaller area of ivy, surrounded by lawn. I was worried I would do a LesterOfPuppets and run over it with the mower.

Got a lawn cut before today's rain storm. No water stops required.

Too much dead time in golf. Plus I'm terrible.

My water stop came 4+ hours in.

No lawns were mowed here. I did replace an irrigation valve however.

I bought a Stages left arm about 4 years ago and always wondered about my L/R balance. Then, a couple years ago, I got a dual meter and lo and behold, my average was 50.5 left and 49.5 right so not only was I fairly balance but my left was stronger than my right and I’m right footed, legged, or whatever you call it. N my case, a left arm only meter works fine as far as I can tell.

I signed up for lessons after 20 years of off and on playing. After just 3 lessons in to a 10 lesson program, the instructor told me not to come back. :lol:

Good thing I was paying lesson by lesson. :D

You can pay 50 bucks or something to unlock a sort of poor man's version of dual meters on the P2Max spider I've got, but no. My vastus medialis on the left is visibly atrophic from an old L3 root compression and there's not a thing in the world I could do about the 57/43 I predict I'd see if I had a split readout.

I hit a golf cart with riders in it once on a parallel fairway. :innocent:

He. In law school I summered after my first year at Alcoa. We had a law department golf outing. Only time I have played "real" golf. My tee shot on the first hole sliced way over into the parallel fairway. But to my credit, I did win the competition for the longest putt made on the 9th hole. It was probably about 20'. I stick to mini-golf.
