A golfing buddy has accused me of having CCOCD - that's OCD of the color coordination variety. I'd protest, but...yeah.
Golf is not (just) about the shoes, though. I promise! Actually, I've been playing sporadically since the third grade. Last Summer, I played a lot. The repetition made a huge difference in my game, and I found myself enjoying (nearly) every second of it. I even played several solo rounds, and not just so I'd have more opportunities to wear the shoes.

When the leaves started to fall, I was on the cusp of breaking 90, which was my personal goal for the year. But, I am a fair weather golfer so when the temperatures dropped and the sun started setting too soon to squeeze in a round after work, I put my clubs (and shoes) away without seeing the 80s.

Though I should have known better, I expected to break out the sticks this Summer and pick up just where I left off. Uh...not so much. It's amazing how quickly bad habits return after just a few months without playing. It also seems both the weather and my schedule have colluded to keep me from playing as regularly as I did last year.

I did join a league for the first time, which has at least given me a modicum of consistency. Knowing that I've prepaid my greens fees, coupled with the fact that I have a partner counting on me to show up, gives me the freedom to prioritize 9 holes once a week when it might otherwise be all too easy to bail in the face of a crowded schedule. I'm still not feeling too optimistic about that personal goal, though...

Nevertheless, I'll keep chipping away at my scores (actually, chipping is one of my biggest problems), and even if I go another summer without seeing the underside of 90, I won't be singing the golf course blues. I might, however, be wearing them...
