Pulling out my 6 hybrid for a 145 yard approach to the green (15 years ago it was an 8 iron).  But then again, I'm extremely thankful that technology changes to golf equipment have me still playing from the men's tees.   I am also old enough that I don't care what any other golfer thinks about my senior club assortment.

I'm still shy of 40, but... getting called 'sir' by a younger woman... it gets to me.  Cart girls?  Bartenders?  My daughter's teachers?  

They call me 'sir' and it's like I'm being punched in the gut.  

On the course, if I get paired with some of the young kids out at the club and they start talking about how they were born in 1997... I automatically want to go jump in the pond.  That's the year I graduated high school... which, to me, was just last year.  Then I have that realization that 20 years has passed and, well...
Same story here.  Kid that works at my shop was born two months after I graduated high school.

The fact that the cart girls don't try to pick me up anymore tells me that I'm truly over the hill.

I started feeling old when I started taking people to jail with a birth year of 1999, my rookie year.  Before that was when I dealt with 1992 birth dates, the year I graduated high school.    

It all becomes better when I go home and see my wife, who is 11 years younger than me. It's like an instant fountain of youth.  #cradlerobber #whoneedsviagrawhenyouhaveahotwife :superman2:

Facing the the cold, hard truth that I no longer score better when I'm walking versus when I ride in a cart. I'm sure it doesn't help that my home course is really hilly.

I still prefer walking, but knowing that I'm probably giving up a couple of shots doing it makes it tough not to grab a cart, especially if there is any sort of wagering involved.

When someone asks me my age my pat answer is always "I'm 56, but I eat right and exercise and I have the body of a 55  and three quarter year old". Of course I replace the age every year.

I recently realized I now make a little grunting noise when I bend down to tee it up or pick up a ball. It's totally involuntary. It just comes out. What the hell is that? I thought it would take a lot longer to get old.
The absolute perfection of existence, life, and aesthetic beauty is the work not only of evolution but of a powerful being.
