More about David Connally

I qualified for super seniors recently, so the gurney should be just around the corner. I take golf way too seriously, and have a very high threshold for what I think my game should be. I occasionally yell at myself for hitting poor shots, but I do try to have fun, as we could be at work! I'm trying to enter more competitions (GK, SCGA, and others) now that I'm not working, to test my game under pressure. So far, I'm just a leaky gasbag - LOL!!

The GK experience got very personal for me in December 2013, at the GK outing at Indian Wells Golf Resort. I collapsed on the first green, and eventually wound up needing a pacemaker to correct a very slow heartbeat. Concerned GKers playing with me and in other groups took care of me until the parameds arrived, and eased my transition to the emergency room. There's not enough thanks that can be expressed for the concern that those casual acquaintances gave to me to help me move toward recovery. It's just another great aspect of the GK family.

Memorable shots: a hole-in-one I made in April 2006 at hole #16 at Sky Mountain GC in Hurricane, UT, just outside St. George. I followed that up two holes later with a career 3-wood to 5 feet for eagle on the par-5 #18. I recommend this course to anyone visiting that area for its great views and friendly playability - unless it's windy!

And I wound up winning that GK Cup thingy in the summer of 2014 - GK Cup 6. Who would have thunk it after my heart problems that past winter, and multiple first-round losses in previous Cups! I struggled in the sectional playoffs to win on the last hole a couple times, then played some better golf against the East and North (finals) champs. Now I can retire in peace!!
