About 6 weeks ago Mrs. No Three Putts dragged me to the gym to join her for a workout. So I reluctantly went and got a week long pass to try it out. Little did I know, I'd become hooked on fitness. It's unreal. I now jog in the morning at 6:00 AM before work, then when I get home in the evening from work I go to the gym and workout.
Heck I even ran in a 5K race after three weeks of training. Race Results - I'm in the 35-39 age group.
Why do I mention this recent fitness bug I've gotten? Because I've played golf 3 times since I started and I have not played better golf in over 10 years. I am trying to figure this all out. I start running, working out and even eating healthy (something I have never done in my life) now all of a sudden I can play golf again. Does getting my lazy ass into shape really equate to better golf? I'm not sure. I think psychologically it has helped me, which in turn has improved the mental part of my golf game.
I get out there now and I do very little thinking. The less thinking I do on the golf course the better. I played today under fairly windy conditions out at Emerald Dunes in West Palm Beach and shot a very solid 81. And to think I could have been at the office today.
A day of golf, instead of work, is like a sore pecker, you can't beat it.
