It's my first year here after moving from Sioux Falls SD. Grew up golfing frequently in high school in the late 80's until I graduated in 91. Had a few slow years of playing only 2-5 times a year for several years. For some time I was not much of a score keeper for sanity reasons. Played a lot of best ball and used as a stress relief by shooting for one good drive, one good layup and one good put.
In 2005 I wanted to get a little more serious. I had learned using regular length clubs on my 6ft 5in frame. I did not want to fork the cash over for Callaway or Taylor Made clubs and wound up building myself a set of clones. I switched out my Big Birtha 454cc clone for the one I have now. While I'm satisfied with my long game my goal (with the exception of my hybrid which I can't hit anything with). My time to play golf over the last several years dwindled and now my fiance encouraged me to start again by asking for a set of clubs for herself. I don't know if she'll like it so I bought her a starter set and a few new things for myself.
My goal this year is to track my score and develop my game. Probably play best ball while I get her started but still play my ball all the way through. (depending on course traffic). My putting has also slipped to horrible performance over the years. Overall I hope to improve my mid and short range game while getting my fiance interested in it as well. If all goes well, we'll get a membership and maybe 2 new sets of higher end clubs next year.
