Signing off, I think!

It's now May 2020. We're in lockdown because of Coronavirus and the golf courses are closed. But I haven't played since October last year and my sciatic problems continue to restrict me. I have good days and bad days but what is abundantly clear is that golf would only worsen things.

I didn't rejoin the club this year and am more or less resigned to the fact that my golfing days are over. I'll miss my golfing partners and the beautiful surroundings offered by golf courses. But I probably won't miss the frustration of what must be one of the most difficult participant sports on Earth.

So it's adieu I'm afraid.

There may be no more golf!

I'm sad to say that the problem with my back and the resulting sciatica has kept me off the golf course, and the way things are looking it's seeming more and more likely that I won't return.

Although things have improved since I stopped playing, any unguarded twist of the body can result in severe sciatic pain. Pain killers relieve it but that isn't a cure.

I miss the company and the beautiful surroundings offered by golf courses but I can't ignore an unwilling body.

Big Sigh
