I have a confession to make.
I haven’t played enough golf this year.
And I don’t mean in an “I can never get enough golf” way. I really just didn’t get out to play anywhere near often enough.
It’s understandable in a way. My kids are 6 and 3, I’m nearing the end of my training as a physician…and on top of it all, I’ve started coaching players this year.
I also fell into the trap of thinking “it’s only worth going out if I can play 18″, when it would’ve been better to have scratched the itch and played as many as possible.
But I certainly don’t think of this year as a failure.
It’s just not a helpful label. And it’s inaccurate for a number of reasons.Firstly, it’s only one aspect of my life, when the others are going rather well.
