Game of Life - Marathon Golfer

My Game of Life i.e. the Marathon Golfer was declared on 13 Feb 2014 during Session 8 of the Money Seminar. This obviously is dedicated to Mr. Fauja Singh. The name is not one that I created from the mind - it just popped up.

This was more than a year after my first visit to a local Golf Academy (on 5/1/2013); a period of time during which my game did not really move forward.

One of the obstacles was the sudden realization that I was not really a man of action, a possibility that got created on 18/12/2013 during one session of Landmark that I just 'happened' to be attending. This creation saw me starting a routine of physical workouts which is now a part of  my way of being. I am now a man of action when I choose to be.

Not much activity however happened on the Golf front even after the game called Marathon Golfer was declared. There were concerns about not having appropriate training facilities like being able to hit shots off the turf without going to the Course. The academy that I was going to did not have any such arrangements and I had kind of got bored with hitting balls off the mat. And the coaching that was available was also nothing much to write about.

Still the possibility that had already been declared was working overtime and I 'happened' to hear about another academy located about 20 kms from home and paid a visit on 21 July, 2014. One visit and I was hooked as it does have everything that anyone could possibly need for learning and working on the game. There is a 9-hole challenging course right next door. I took my first coaching session from Mr. Sunil Kumar on 20 Aug, 2014 and it's a process that is ongoing. He is really a good coach and a good human being too.

There have been visits in between to the 9-hole golf course during which I have played rounds in 100, 75, 70 and 66 shots which I know, is nothing much to write about. But the fact remains that my game is improving on all aspects. I am getting better with each and every day that passes.

The following possibilities were declared during a conversation with the coach on 8 Oct, 2014:

Golf at 100
(years of age as well no.of courses worldwide during this time frame)

100 by 55
(18 holes in 100 shots by 55 years of age which I will be in about 6 months)

Now these possibilities really enliven me and in fact are driving me on and on.

The benefits are already there for me to see. I am fitter than ever. The tremors in my hands have considerably reduced. I have lost a few pounds and inches around my waist and thighs. My body is getting leaner. The knees and shoulders are absolutely fine. 

And more important, there is a sense of purpose in life.

A life that is in any case Empty and Meaningless.

And so it is.
