So I was watching the Tour Championship on TV today and it occurred to me how little I have written here since I played East Lake for my 200th course over a year and a half ago. Since then I've played 22 new golf courses and three of those are now in my top 10. That's not a bad stretch of golf. I've also moved to New York City which opens up a huge number of golf courses to play. It also opens up Bethpage Black on a regular basis and, for $65 as a resident, I intend to play there at least once a month. I've also competed in two tournaments this year, one at Salem Glen where I finished third and another at Brookville CC on Long Island where I finished far worse than third because I got destroyed by an incredible set of greens. To be honest, Brookville likely had one of the two or three best set of greens that I have ever played.
Another highlight of the past 18 months was playing TPC Sawgrass (PLAYERS Stadium). I played this with a good friend from work. We left Mobile, AL at 4am, drove to Jacksonville, played 18 holes, and drove back to Alabama. Perhaps not something I would recommend to others, but it was a great day.
Hopefully I can post more here going forward. I've simply been lazy and not been writing.

I have found it difficult to play golf this year. I simply have not found the time to get out and play. As of right now, I have played about ten new courses this year, and 7 of those came in January. So it is difficult to write about courses when I am barely playing any golf at all. But hopefully I can get back to playing and writing here as I enjoy both quite a bit.

Well, after quite some time and some changes in life, I'm back to posting. There will be some changes in the site, full photo tours will likely go away due to time constraints, but I am going to make every effort to post once a week. Hopefully I can post something that people will enjoy. If you want to see something specific, let me know.
