Ever been in a funk? You know, you just get that "down" feeling? Even though golf season has finally arrived in Minnesota, and I've already had several fun rounds with friends, I've been struggling with this feeling of "funkiness" lately. I know it's real when I have the chance to play golf and I don't. And that happened last night.
A combination of golf, work, and general life issues are cluttering up my brain and my default mode is to attempt to avoid dealing with any of it in the hopes that it might go away on it's own...of course I know from experience it never does, but sometimes the funk wins out.

I was browsing through some golf links last night and came across an interesting blog. The makers of Solus Wedges have created a neat web site and blog site to share their story of trying to make their mark on the Professional Tours.
I'll admit I've never heard of Solus (although I'm wondering now if they've had an infomercial?)...and if you read their blog, the Solus guys aren't all that surprised that they are still under the radar. They have some very interesting commentary on the "big guns" in the equipment world and the challenges they face as they are trying to get their wedges into Tour bags.

My mind has been struggling to comprehend the meaning and appropriateness of rules lately as I have been following the story of Ken Green. Green, a current Champions Tour player and 5-time winner on the PGA Tour was in a terrible accident last year which resulted in the amputation of his lower right leg. More tragic was the death of his brother, girlfriend, and dog in this same accident.
Green's journey from his Tour beginnings until now make for an interesting read. From being called golf's "bad boy" or "Daly before there was a Daly", Green admits that although he may have been controversial, he wouldn't change much from back then.
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!!
