You guys ARE like therapists. I need a little therapy right now. I'm getting closer to retirement age. Sometimes I think it can come soon enough. I joined a golf country club. I don't have a proprietary membership but I do have golfing privileges. Any day, most times except the early tee times. Fine with me. I have friends and brothers that also golf. My bros play at a swanky course way above my pay grade. At this point almost everyone I know is better than I am, but I have just recently taken the game back up. I consider golf to be a social game, but I do keep my index so I can play in tournaments. Long story. Sorry. I have invited my one buddy several times to play at my CC. Which he has accepted. He is always thankful. He doesn't belong to a CC but has access to any of the public courses. I am only allowed to take the same guest once a month. He has yet to invite me to play at any public course, so if I'm looking for a partner at my course, it can be a tough get. This week he invited me to play at a public course an hour away from our home. Fine. We find out the weather is going to be speculative where he booked, so we cancelled. This was not entirely my decision, but he pulled the trigger on the cancellation. I then suggested a couple of other venues. They were both "goat tracks" to him. I find out today he booked a single on the local course. I checked and there were no times available at the same time. I looked at one of the other close local courses. Equal distant from where we both live. Within 18 minutes of the single tee time he had booked. I booked a twosome. I called my buddy and said, hey, I got a twosome at 10:18.... He said, no, he doesn't like that course. So, he'd rather play as a single with strangers than play with me at a course he doesn't like. I told my wife, she said, you know Joe, he's weird. Maybe he needs some alone time. I honestly don't get it. I know I feel a little (or a lot) sorry for myself. It feels crappy. I don't know.... If you have specific questions, I'll answer, but my preference would be just to listen to what you guys think. I feel weak that it bothers me, but it really does. I should mention this guy is not just an acquaintance. He is one of my best, if not my best, buddy.
