Currently living in Nashville, Tennessee, I’m employed as a content manager. In other words, I write and edit for a living. But long before I became a writer, I intensely loved golf. I played collegiately near Atlanta for two years, with a handicap near scratch. Twelve years of frustrating play in tournaments led to an ugly case of burnout, and I didn’t touch a club for over six years. Here I am, 32, and back at it…for some ridiculously freakish reason.

I’m a Christian first, a husband second, a writer third, and a golfer fourth. I used to love golf, then I hated it. Now I love it again, though I’m not sure why. I’ve never had much to show for my love of this amazingly difficult game, other than a few mental bruises. Maybe I used to take it too seriously, but I’ve got a life now and golf has found its proper perspective.

But that doesn’t mean I don’t want to beat the crap out of this sport. It’s beat me up enough in the past. Time for a little revenge. My game is under repair. I will suck no more.

    Hey Rob, I feel your pain. My golf game (if you call it that) is once a year. Most of the time I am helping the course staff by weeding the rough for them. I have been known to help keep the squirrel population on some courses in check. My slice keeps other golfers, small children, and animals on their toes.

    Keep blogging!

  2. Eric, we should play next time I’m in Atlanta…or let let me know if you’re up in Nashvegas. Loving it up here. Hope things are great down there in the ATL, especially all the connector traffic!

    Robert.

    I am enjoying your blog. We have taken very similar paths leaving golf, six year sabbaticals, and returning to the game. Where did you play collegiate golf? Is there a less public method to contact you?

    thanks

    I have a blog, http://www.viewfromthefringe.com, if you are interested.

  12. Hi Robert, sorry to bug you, but we’ve change our URL for our blog, when you have a chance, could you make the change to:

    Hi Rob,

    I was wondering if you could include a link to our site on your blog. We have a golf lifestyle app called USAProTour that allows people to view golf courses and the highlights of the course. I am the web developer and noticed that we have a link to your site on our page. You can email me to chat about it at webmaster@usaprotourapp.com

    Thank you for your time!
