Second day of summer

Posted 06-22-2015 at 05:42 PM by onebuck

Well we are having some wet weather here in central Illinois. We are under a Tornado watch until 23:00 with expectations of severe weather throughout the night. I have been through my share of tornado and respect them very much. Preparedness is important!
Sun is shining now but the radar shows the storm traffic/path and we will be hit by some bad storms. I am tired of all the rain. We are at 11.5 inches and this is the last week in June. More than we need.

I cannot get caught up with outside work because of the rain. My neighbor is ripping off his flat roof to make repairs. I wish that I could do something for him but that type of work is beyond my physical abilities now. Great neighbors!

My golfing has been limited to hitting balls at a local range. I need to keep my body loose since we have a College golf outing on Friday at a Arnold Palmer course in Bloomington. Our local course has been closed for the past 10 days because of flooding. Walkers were allowed today but I cannot walk that course since the physical stress is beyond my abilities to push a cart, swing and walk the course. I tried walking two weeks ago and it almost killed me. My asthma was triggered so I needed to use the MDI. That elevates my heart rate, blood pressure and causes other issues. Here I am playing with other members that are at least a decade older, two were carrying their clubs. Sure they only had necessary clubs. One guy had a driver, putter, 5 & 9 irons. His round was fair. He said he knew where his ball flights were going therefore only a few clubs needed. No wasted energy.

In my younger days I would carry my full bag without effort but now I would just be asking for troubles. So I am limited to a golf cart to ride around the course. Really enjoy the game and play whenever I can.

I have a Golf card from a local TV station and we have only played 2 courses. We planned to play one course a week through the summer. My friend has been laid up the last few weeks. He volunteered his card for someone else to use so we do not waste the plays. Still been to wet to try other courses. Hopefully we can get out of the weather cycle to get some clear days. I will go out tomorrow to hit some more balls if the weather is permitting.

Go Play!
