This weekend marks the 31st US Senior Open, where more than 150 men over 50 are competing to win cash, prizes and the title of Champion. The 2010 winner, Bernhard Langer, won nearly $500,000. Wish we could join in...
However, we know most of us will never play in this tournament and can forget that big payday, but we really enjoy watching. It inspires us to go out and hit a few balls. It reinforces that we are still competitive as we age. We can still practice and work at being better at our favorite sports, whether it's golf or something else. We're sure that Bernhard didn't win because he was sitting on the couch...so we're not doing that either.
It's summer, get out and enjoy it. Hit the course and then some balls, or hit the road and do what you love to do. (We shared what we love to do Old Guys Rule - Favorite Things To Do In the Summer
.) You know what we think - Old Guys Rule...which means we get out there and we get it done. We LIVE our lives instead of watching it pass us by. How are you livin'? We'd love to know.
As the shirt says, "It don't mean a thing if you ain't got that swing." We wish all of the Old Guys in the US Senior Open the best this weekend. And should this be your first time reading our posts, when we say, "Old Guys" it is bestowing an honor for a life well spent.
