I Played Golf This Weekend


For anyone that may have read a few of my summer posts, this should be old news, but sometimes one just has to make a noise.

I am entering my 12th week of recovery from an aortic valve replacement done at the end of March. All went well and I am told, my quality of life will improve, which will be interesting as I a thought I was having a good time.

It will extend my longevity which is saying something as there are several Centenarians in my immediate family including both of my parents.

Does this mean that I have been given an extended warranty so that just hitting 100 is a small blip on the roadway of life?

It felt great to be back and on the top side of the grass. I walked every hole with no issues except for my final score not being where I would have liked it to be.




I kept coming up a little short on putts.


I am so happy that my presence was noted with so many happy smiles across fairways and many a thumbs-up.

They may not feel that way once I feel comfortable to get back into competition and the exchange of paper goes against them.

Nina Hollander, Broker  for the past 2 months we have walked the course quite often and my wife would tell me that I was living my golf through the comments I would make to those we encountered.

Hello Ed - glad to hear about your (and you're) swinging.  Here's to scoring when/where it matters most.  After all, Mulligans are not always an option.

Ed if the put are coming up short it just means you need to take off the skirt and put on a pair of pants.  😆

I am so glad that your recovery is going well, Ed. 

Getting out on the golf course, walking and swinging at the ball has got to be good exercise.

John Juarez   Thank you  I am as well as I was really getting antsy with the inactivity

Well I can relate to your post Ed.  First of all I'm glad you're able to be up and about and got to at least get out and give it your best shot this weekend. In my mind, gold is a perfect goal to keep in mind.  I've got to have neck surgery in early August and that was on of the first questions I asked the doc - how soon can I play some golf.  It's a longer recovery but hey I'll get there some day.    I bet you were feeling antsy sitting around - so darn boring isn't it.  Let's go!   Good for you!

That's great to hear, Ed! I got serious about golf 5 years ago and it has been one of the best things I could do for my mental and physical health. Best wishes on your continued recovery!
