[Ed. note: Now that I’ve got my music collections pretty much done it occurred to me that some music afficianado out there might want to know the contents of each of them so they too, if so inclined, would have a starting point for their own collection or just be interested in checking some of the songs out on YouTube or elsewhere. So here is the first in a series of posts containing the contents of my collections.]

“Zen Surf” was my very first collection. It’s surf music both classical and contemporary, by some bands you’ve heard of but plenty that I’ll bet you haven’t as well. On a hot summer afternoon soaking up some sun or taking a refreshing swim, you can’t beat it. The collection is several years old, but I find it has held up nicely over that time. Surf’s up!!

57 + 60 = 117

There’s a history of this kind of thing, you know. It’s like the Houston Astros going 22-10 during Spring Training and getting everyone’s hopes up, only to see their Opening Day starter get shelled, then losing the first 14 of fifteen games to start the season.

I’m not going to sugarcoat anything – there’s not a whole lot of comfort to be taken from a performance like today. It was a disaster from start to finish. On the range before the round I couldn’t seem to find any tempo whatsoever. On the course, it wasn’t bad enough that I was flogging the dog from start to finish, I had to be rescued by the Pro Shop because of my cart’s dead battery not just once, but twice! I mean, how often does that kind of thing happen? And, judging from my hideously swollen left-hand pinky finger, it would appear I fractured something on a swing out of a sand trap on #7 (one of three attempts to get out of the sand, BTW).

My goal of hitting fairways? A joke – I only hit only two all day. And the fact there are only two Callaway Supersofts remaining out of my original dozen tells you all you need to know there.

More than anything else, just like Tiger at Torrey Pines and the Phoenix Waste management Open, I found myself totally lost on a part of my game I used to take great pride in – my sand game. Sitting in a cold, dark Mexican restaurant and nursing a margarita afterwards I recounted the carnage resulting from my sand game; of those 117 strokes 22 of them – 22! – were directly related to sand traps. Whether it was taking two or three tries to get out, or hitting my out into water, it was, to be truthful, embarrassing.

There’s little comfort I can take out of today’s performance, and, to be truthful, I’m not sure where the road leads from here. I hit my irons OK, but my distance control was way off and I never felt comfortable over the ball. My course management was abysmal, but that’s gonna happen when things start spiraling out of control: you start trying to force things and nothing good ever happens from that. My short game was OK, but when you’re already looking at double-bogey or worse when you’re chipping onto a green who really cares? And what do you do when you find yourself out of position on virtually every hole?

The good thing is that the Pinot Grigio is cold. And it’s rewarding to see that my 26.1 handicap didn’t change as a result of today’s debacle. But that’s little comfort right now.

It may not have been pretty, but at least I looked good stinkin’ up the joint. And I never lost my composure – I just kept my head down and proceeded to double par the next hole. So there’s something to be said from that.

OK, so today serves as the true “Opening Day” of The Great White Shank’s 2015 golf season when I tee it up at Stonecreek Golf Club up the road in Phoenix. The swing, as mentioned in prior posts, is as ready as it will ever be, having been reconstructed completely from scratch courtesy of my fitness trainer Tony Bate, PGA golfer Hunter Mahan, PGA professional Brady Riggs, and yours truly. Four months of weekly work at the range, a few practice rounds in Las Vegas and here, and, most recently, some heavy-duty work on my short game and putting have set the stage for the great unveiling.

It’s time to unleash the hounds.

The Callaway clubs are the same, but the Wilson 50 orange balls are a things of the past: I’m playing white Callaway Supersofts this year. The Hawaiian shirts, long a staple of my golf attire, are also gone – they’re now strictly reserved for post-round nights on the town, having been replaced by the more traditional look of shorts and (brightly colored) polo shirts. I’ve been working hard to get myself into shape, so like they say, if you’ve got it, flaunt it.

Some might guess that my only goal this year is to win my sixth Goodboys Invitational championship. While that would be nice, that’s not it by a longshot. The goal this year is three-fold: 1) hit more fairways, 2) hit more fairways, and 3) you guessed it – hit more fairways! I finally have a highly repeatable golf swing that seems to be holding up quite well under various conditions – especially with my irons and hybrids. My 3-wood and driver are coming around but remain a work in progress. Now, with less than three months to go until July’s Goodboys Invitational weekend, for better or worse it’s time to start posting numbers.

I enter the 2015 season a 26.1 handicap, tied with that cagey marsupial “Possum” Shepter. It would be nice if I could shave a point or two off that number before the end of the season, but I’m not gonna worry about that right now.


…then let whatever will be will be and enjoy the ride.

Let’s get it on.
