Why now?
Tuesday May 19, 2009 10:37am

I decided early in the spring this year to try and be more focused in my practice, with the hopes of improving my game a bit and maybe even getting the index down to a 12.  That's a pretty ambitious goal, to drop 4 points, but I truly feel with a better short game, it's attainable.  Things had been going fairly well.  I was practicing more than usual, without feeling guilty about leaving the family behind.  Additioanlly, I have begun entering all of my detail scores on the Golf Channel site using their GameTracker software, and have a better idea of the areas I need to focus on.

Last Friday, 5/1/5/09 I shoot the best score of the year and end up injuring my knee near the end of the round.  I had been posting almost all low 90 scores all year and now I had the chance to enter a very nice 83, with 2 birdies and almost chipped in a sand shot on #18.  Now, I'm on the shelf for the next 6-10 weeks with a torn medial meniscus in my left knee!!  I haven't had the MRI yet, but am hoping to have it sometime this week, so that I can get a better idea of the extent of the injury and schedule surgery as soon as possible.

In the meantime, I will be reading as much as possible and keeping up with the GK site, which I think is one of the finest user generated golf sites anywhere!!
