sigh.....the mind is willing but the body is another thing altogether.

The spirit is still burning but the joints are cracking with pain

Any advice for a golfer about to head into Uncle-hood?


I am thinking of asking 5-5 fm the younger generation as a start.

Time to look for a good hair dye to hide the white. Or to grow a pony-tail in a vain attempt to remain cool and hip. ROFL

DS you really kns! I was not even thinking about it! And now ! Ha ha at the moment I feel I am still peaking in my game ... If you going think that way you are sure to go that way! That's down and defeated! I can safely say I am still within one club off from the average golfers here and maybe 2 from those big hitters. And I can still give them a difficult time ... Until they call me uncle for my game and not for my age !

PS thanks for naming me uncle captain! Like some uncle will say "I will remember You!"

DS, my advice to you is keep buying equipment... new technology will help you in your "golden years"

you are not in the same category as my Idol... 50 and still going strong, in fact, probably stronger than most 30 somethings... perhaps it is the lack of "clean living"???
