Got a new set of golf clubs for my birthday. I don’t really understand why I’m so eager to try them out. But I am. In the past year I have golfed twice, and didn’t play well, at least not in traditional sense. By my own metric — in which I count the number of balls I lost — there has been some improvement. As I said to my good friend, Fishbelly White, maybe, in my previous golf-playing life, I didn’t have the right mindset. Maybe now I do.
