  • Shooting your age: Not an easy...

    On Sept. 1, my husband turned 70 and now he has a dream. After several scores in the 70s this summer, he is on a mission to (someday) shoot his age. That’s not an easy thing to do.
    There are 26.2 million golfers in the United States. Of all those golfers, the average score for men on a regulation 18-hole course is 97. For women, the average score is 114.
    Face it. Most of us will never shoot our age.

  • Ocean coming to life for fall...

    Fall is officially here, and I, for one, have been holding my breath to see whether the fish were actually going to show up and respond to their annual fall migration patterns. This past summer has been tough fishing for a variety of species, namely king mackerel and grouper.
