I played for a whole year before I broke 100. My handicap was in the range of 18 to 30 for a long time. There were times when I felt like quitting the game because of frustration and failure to improve.
Through the years I have become a better than average golfer but not a great golfer. They say that only 10% of all amateur golfers consistently break 100. My handicap has been as low as a 8, but it is usually in the range of a 10. One area of the game I have developed is my driving distances. I can still consistently hit the golf ball over 300 yards. My distance off the tee has improved substantially after the age of 60. The reason I believe is my exercise routine, setup, Steve Griffith (WLDC) and of course todays high tech equipment.
What I enjoy most about golf is the competition, being with my friends and this game is always a challenge. No matter what you shoot you are always trying to improve your game. I love to bust the long drive and had won a few long drive contests before getting serious about the RE/MAX World Long Drive competitions. What I enjoy least about this game are amateurs that take the game to serious and the golf course cheats. You know, the guy with the oversized ego that has to cheat to make him feel better about his game and himself. Those kind of guys are only fooling themselves.

I am retired and enjoy computers. When I am not playing golf I spend my time with family, friends and working on computer items. I also enjoy the Old West and have wrote a few ebooks about Western History. I enjoy maintaining Golf Swings Web Site and adding new features on a regular basis.
I try to make a little extra money to maintain this web site and pay my damn health insurance by selling my computer programs I design and create. I have also published a few web page sites for friends and business associates.
If you have any thoughts, suggestions or criticism, please email me. I will respond as soon as possible to any email I receive.
