For the last 8 years I’ve been playing 5aside and 8aside, but the last year I’ve just been getting injured more often, and quite frankly not having the same desire to play every week, no competitive urge. I turn 30 in April and the injuries have just been annoying, knee, ankle, back, shoulder, I’m in pretty decent shape, and surprised at how bad I’ve been breaking down. Long story short, I gave up the goalkeeper gloves and picked up a set of golf clubs about 6 months ago and I’m obsessed.
I started messing around and was awful, so I decided to get a string 5 lessons and have completed 4. The patience of this game is fucking brutal. Listening to the instructor and trusting him has been a task, but I enjoy practicing a few days a week, playing 9 holes here and there, and lastly the competitive side in me is back wanting to get better every day at this game. We just completed lessons with the long clubs, hybrids-woods-driver and I felt so relieved to be able to hit them pretty good. He changed my entire swing for the better, I just have to work on consistency but I love the challenge.
What do you play?
