september and october are the best months to be in kansas. those few precious weeks that you can be outdoors without being at the mercy of the heat or bitter cold, and how better to spend those weeks then golfing.everyone in my office loves golf, and today was the annual aia golf tournament. in an office of six people this of course means the office shuts down, and we play golf. being the "new guy" they were anxious to see if they had some new talent waiting to surprise the other firms with. however my years on the junior varsity team did not pay off. i would have had better luck playing blindfolded with a shovel. our saving grace however was the general contractor we recruited for our team, keeping us from coming in last. however the day wasn't a total bust.
there is a reason golf is compared to life so much. as mentioned, i had a terrible round. all day i was hitting the water, sandtraps, and once, the refreshment cart. however on one particular par three, i landed the ball seven feet from the pin, giving me one of the best shots in my life, making all the other disappointing shots disappear. just as in life, years of trial, error and frustration, seem to disappear the moment everything comes together giving you that "perfect shot". and then your boss reminds you of the refreshment cart.
