It’s been a lot of fun sharing my passion for the game of golf here the past few years, and I’d like to take this opportunity to thank a few loyal readers for taking the time to drop in and visit from time to time. This blog has definitely served a purpose in my life, offering me a nice distraction and giving me something to do in my spare time, something centered around this game that I love.
I’ve often lamented that when I’m not in the mood to play golf – the golf course is the last place I should be. If you want to play good golf, you need to want to be on the course playing and enjoying the challenges that await. To be certain, that’s not a conundrum that most of my friends have to worry about, as most of them are lucky to play once a week, and they treasure each and every round, good or bad. But it’s the only fitting analogy that I can think of that best explains the reason for my official retirement from the blogosphere.
On too many occasions over the past year I’ve found myself posting articles here more so out of obligation than a genuine desire. As a result, the quality of my writing has been replaced with cut-n-paste quotes from various articles and shallow opinion pieces. That wasn’t in my original plans, that’s not who I am as a writer. Nevertheless, that’s the direction this blog has taken, veering wildly off-course and not reflecting near enough of the type of quality that earns loyal readership.
We all go through phases in life when priorities change, when life suddenly moves on and new interests await. That’s where I am today. That’s where I’ve been for quite a while now, but despite that I kept the lights on and the door unlocked for those who wanted to come inside.
Now the time has finally come for me to turn off the lights, lock the door and close up the shop.
Thanks again to all of you who’ve taken the time to visit my site over the years, and I wish you the very best, both in the game of golf and the game of life.
