I took a day off from work Friday. Reflector sports writer/legend Don Hohler had invited me several months earlier to join him and his son Jeff for a round of golf at legendary Firestone Country Club. Firestone is private, but the company for which Jeff works has a corporate membership so he was able to finagle the visit. I had been excited for weeks about putting my skills to the test, albeit a bit easier one than that which would face Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and just about every other top golfer in the world a month hence. As I've mentioned before here, at one time in my life I was a pretty fair golfer. I gave up the game for some time when I found I had difficulty carving out the 16 or so hours each week to keep my handicap in single digits. If I couldn't play well, I didn't really want to play at all.
