The GrunkleGuru

Grunkle is a slang term for the thick rough on a golf course that I have been using for many years. Given my penchant for inaccurate tee balls, I have become a bit of a guru out of the thick stuff, hence the name. This is a site for my random thoughts about sports (espeically golf) and life in general. While nothing special, it will hopefully offer a break from the daily drudgery for both you and me.

Taking A Break From The Enlightenment

Wow, there is a fascinating discussion going on here in the Greensboro Blogsphere regarding anonymous posting. Many of my brethren are talking about varying philosophies at Greensboro News & Record blogs by John Robinson & Allen Johnson.

To delve into those big-brain, big-thinking discussions could prove disastrous for yours truly as I am neither big-brained nor big-thinking. Trust me, bad things would happen.

I do have a solution for those of you who are looking for a nice diversion from intellectual thinking. Play golf. Better yet, play golf according to your astrological sign.

My wife brought home a book the other day, Golf Astrology by Michael Zullo. I chuckled when she gave it to me, but then I started reading about my sign, Virgo. Here is a synopsis:

Strength lies in your ability to analyze any situation and come up with a solution.

You don’t panic on difficult shots

You take a business like approach to your golf game

Other Virgo golfers include: Arnold Palmer, Raymond Floyd, Tom Watson, and Lee Janzen.

The funny thing is that most of the statements are true. I can usually find the best solution (execution is a different story), Like they say in the Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy, I don’t panic, and I do look at a golf round from a business perspective. Heck, I even own a golf business (Short Game Central – providing quality club repair and custom built wedges and putters).

I also know that anytime I can be associated with the above golfers, it is not a bad thing.

So, I am going to take my own advice and go play golf. It’s Tuesday and that means Par-3 shoot-out.
