Golfers Anonymous

- Post by Brandon Frame, Pricing Specialist 

My name is Brandon Frame and I am addicted to golf. They don’t have an official support group for people like me, but I know I’m not alone. When I am not at work, chances are I am probably swinging a golf club. For my 8th birthday my grandfather gave me a set of golf clubs and I've been hooked ever since! It gets me away from the fast pace of the Dallas/Ft. Worth area for a few hours. Golf is a game that tests you physically and mentally. There are many things that have to take place to execute a good golf shot, but you'll never hit the same shot twice. It seems that every time I play there is one part of my game that is suffering. Whether it’s my driver slicing to the right all day, my 6 iron continually finding the green side bunkers, or my putter not seeming to work right. Hey, even Tiger has bad days. You have to know your strengths to try to compensate for whatever is lacking in your game. Also, living in Texas does not help, the sudden weather changes and random wind gusts can change your shot in no time. 

I try to play golf more than once a week during golf season. My buddies and I play every Sunday at Firewheel Golf Course for weekly bragging rights and competitive trash talking via text message until the next time we meet. I also take a trip every year to New Braunfels, TX to play golf with my grandfather for a few days at my favorite golf course, The Bandit.

I love golf. It's an individual's sport that will always keep you guessing; a game that people of all ages have fun excelling at, and a place where I can relax while enjoying time with those I care for. There is nothing else that I would rather be doing on a nice summer day than walking the fairways.
