The Measure of a Man

A favorite song of mine by a group called 4Him, is called Measure of a Man…
It’s been on my mind lately as I have been hearing bits and pieces about the upcoming President’s Cup and the selection process that will happen in about a month. The “filler version” of the Ryder Cup in off years definitely has its share of great players, drama, and talent, but it’s felt to me like it was almost “gimmicky”…”the Tie”, Michael Jordan, I don’t know…maybe it just hasn’t been around long enough to be revered yet, at least not in my mind anyway.
September means great golf!

Holy cow, it's September 1. How did this happen? I am not ready to head into the downward slide of the golf season yet! It's funny, last night as we were playing in our weekly "Scramble Tuesday" event, it was like Mother Nature decided to let us know September was on the door step. It was hot and muggy as I left my office yesterday afternoon and my house felt like someone had left a heat lamp on all day when I walked in.

My home course has been closed for just over a week now, but I have been fortunate enough to still sneak out, er, I mean get out, and play a few holes...this past Saturday was in the 50's and I lugged my bag around for a few hours and got 11 holes in before I needed to head home to get ready for a great concert. I had planned on playing on Sunday, too, because for some reason I thought it was going to be another mild day. It wasn't.
September is here...

Ah, September. I almost missed the turning of the calendar this year because our entire summer felt like September, and FINALLY, this past week we had what felt like summer.
My first reaction when I realize it's September is to panic. We've hit the downhill slide of the golf season and I know I've got to take advantage of every opportunity I can to get out on the course. Every year at this time I look back and wonder where the summer went. Our window of opportunity opens in May (sometimes April if we're lucky), and in the next few weeks the golf shade will start to be pulled down. Wait! I'm not ready yet!
When I found Tees2Greens website and forum I found a happy place. There were great people there and in 2009 they asked me if I wanted my own blog space. It was a dream come true!! The site is down now, but I was able to get all of my posts to be able to post here. I will always be grateful for all of the Tees2Greens folks!!
