And I believe we had been all simply grateful to be {golfing}.

Bear in mind, because the snow lastly began to vanish within the spring, it was no sure-thing that we’d be digging divots in 2020.

No rakes? No drawback. Except you’re competing in your membership championship or a match of another type, you by no means ought to have been attempting to blast out of a footprint in a bunker anyway. This sport is tough sufficient already.

No pulling the pin earlier than a putt? I’m admittedly a man who favored the flag-stick out of the way in which so it appeared like there was extra goal to intention at, however who actually cares?

Not sufficient tee-times to satisfy the demand? OK, that one was a little bit of an issue, though it was a pleasant nudge to take a look at a brand new course or guide a rematch with one you hadn’t performed shortly. (Why had it been so lengthy since my final go to to Innisfail, anyway?!?)

Regardless of a implausible fall, we’ve all recognized for a couple of weeks now that each spherical could possibly be our final of the season.

Oh properly. I’m simply grateful we might play golf, interval.
