This was a beautiful 80 degree day in Seward, NE and I got out to the golf course with old friends. It was only the 2nd time I'd golfed this summer but felt I needed the practice before our Kiwanis Golf meet Monday evening. The course is in excellent shape and I enjoyed seeing all the trees, shrubs, flowers, birds, etc as much as I enjoyed the golf. I putted as well as I ever had but my play off the greens leaves a lot to be desired. I didn't hit it as far as I did last year so I tried to swing harder which lead to trouble. I really need to go to the driving range and work the "kinks" out of my swing. I just don't know whether the passion for the game will come back and motivate me to work at it.
