Actually those are the key ingredients to any and every endeavor. I am able to commit plenty of #1 and #2 not so much #3 so my plan must fit that constraint.
- I am 60 years old, not an obstacle, at least not one anyone can do anything about.
- I am overweight, that is an obstacle that effects performance a little, but since I ride it's not to big of a factor, still I want to loose 40 pounds.
- Physically fit??? Not bad, but I have limited flexibility in the lower back, that is an obstacle. Doing a lot of stretches, using my Prorelax electrical stimulator. Most importantly seeing Dr Matt on a regular basis. I have the strength for golf but not the flexibility.
- Ability. I have eagled every hole on my home course except 3 of the par 3's. Only one hole in one in my life. That means I have the ability to score low.
- Skill. I believe skill is the automatic habituated high-quality application of ability. That only comes with repetitions, hitting lots of balls on purpose and with a purpose. Lots of time in my hitting area in the garage. Probably will still only play once a week, maybe twice on occasion. So the question is, "Can a casual golfer be a scratch golfer?"
