Seven timers

He died on a Sunday evening, just past 10pm.  I was sitting next to him, waiting for the end, the inevitable, even though I was hoping for a miracle.  One that I knew was never going to happen.

Mike Linse is his name, but I mostly called him “Dad.”

Don't quit before it's time to quit

I played in my country club golf championship last weekend.  It was the 23rd time I have played in the event since my first go around in 1991. 

I have only missed it twice.   I love the tournament, it is my favorite weekend of the year. 

This past Sunday, on day two and the final day of the tournament, with two holes to go, I was three strokes down.

Eddie Felson and Ben Hogan

While studying Public Health and Corporate Wellness at Minnesota State University, Mankato, I had zero idea of what I wanted to do with my life.  What I did know is that I didn’t want to be stuck in a job that was boring, and with no future.  And I wanted to make a lot of money.
