: This time of year you like to see a Golfer making gradual improvement with each outting.
: Jerry's posted figures are sporadic. There's alot of time between figures. Lots of White Space on the handicap card. This generally means one of several things, all of them bad:
: The issue that jumps out is that it may be a sign of physical problems. A golfer with a swing doesn't take time off and not play golf during the golf part of the year. Jerry may not have much of a swing left and it may be that the effort it takes to make it, takes so much out of him that recovery time is extended;
: Another variable is the type of swings Jerry has been competing against. (New York is not a hotbed of good moves.) Now if you're playing half-court or stickball a New Yorker would have to be factored as a serious contender. But Golf? Most New Yorkers don't have much better than T's and jeans and that kind of attire won't even get you a post position in a quality club.
: Add to that, most Yawkers are too cheap to ante up for a caddy or cart and insist on carrying their own. Those extra pounds add points to a golfer's swing.
: Finally, you have to figure a New Yorker's inability to attend a sporting event without a beer in hand. Now that may the true explanation for all the White Space on the handicap card, (weekends off for bending the elbow). But beer on the Golf Course is almost a sure indicator that a bounce is in order and I've never seen a New York boy on a course without a beer in hand.
: So Jerry may jump up and surprise in the next outing. But I've been doing this awhile and the smart money is with Paul the Slicer and Jerry to bounce big time.
TG--I'm way too lazy to carry my clubs, and I don't drink beer (vodka martinis). The rest is dead on.
Sorry to hear about your mom. TGJB
