I know, yet another golf song. My lack of playing must be bringing it out of me. Or maybe the awesome PGA action today with Rickie Fowler and Ricky Barnes.
Every golfer has certain swing thoughts that one says to oneself upon addressing the ball. It’s usually something random that some coach, magazine, friend, TV commentator has said to do. And that’s not necessarily bad. In the long run it probably helps because it gives you a routine and focus. When I play, which is seldom these days, my only swing thought is to hit the ball in the center of the clubface. If you do that it doesn’t matter what’s happening in your swing. Put the Golf Digest down and try that one on for size.
As usual, after my work week recycling out town and staying away from home a few nights I’m catching up with my songs.
I surprised Adair with a pizza and salad from the grocery store tonight and guess what, that inspired this song.
I’d been watching the PGA tournament and the new kid Rickie Fowler was wearing these awesome Puma pants and that inspired the other half of the song. I love Puma Golf gear, so you’ll probably see me annoying people on the golf course with those same pants this year too.
Welcome to Chris Cates.com. I'm an old school independent artist with lots of albums, songs, solar panels etc. This site tries to encapsulate what it is I've been doing since I played my first professional gig at 13. I post a song of the day occasionally from my somewhat excessive original song catalogue and I'm constantly recording new material when I'm not building solar farms, trying to play golf or tennis or taking care of my new twin girls.
