When I golf I dislike when people have their phones on. I can understand if you run a business or have young children. I always turn mine off. It annoys me if, it's random chatter and not essential.

I usually say "If a war starts or someone dies We'll know after 18." Which I did on last Tuesday.

Tuesday I teed off at 4 pm My dad had a major stroke around 430 turned my phone on at nine. Phoned a friend, was hanging up when I got my brothers text. Two days later we pulled the plug. I missed his last moments of awareness.

I had mentioned it to my Dad in previous conversation that my phone was always off when on the course he said "I don't blame you, you're having fun with your buddies. Whatever happens,happens."



RIP Mac.
Lamont, You big dummy!

Very sorry, tmc! Don't beat yourself up about the phone. We all should unplug more. Hang in there.

My condolences to you and your family.

25 years ago we would have been golfing with no phones and no real method of contact, other than someone coming to bring the news.

Sorry about your dad.

So Sorry for your loss. I empathize.

Lost my pops on Halloween night a couple of years ago. The immediate grief eventually fades but I still have things happen in my life that trigger memories of him. More melancholic than sad but still.

That sucks, I've been there.

Don't sweat the phone thing. Eventually you'll see it's just how it goes sometimes.

I think most dads would prefer their kids to be out getting something done, or having some fun.

That's what we live for, to see our kids out there getting it done and having a good life.

But condolences, and remember that this why we spend time together when we can. You did, so all is good.

Sorry to hear man. It's never a good time for something like that to happen but it sounds like your Dad would've preferred the way it happened over any other situation that would've left you stressed/panicked on his behalf.

The family will say a prayer for you and yours.
Barney who?

Echo the comments above, so sorry to hear that TMC, I know how you feel, been there. Prayers and thoughts to you and your family at this time.

And yes your dad like many dad's surely was happy and very proud of you.

Me and my Dad did everything together...and now I do everything with my 7 year old boy, just the way he did with me.

That's the best attitude to take. RIP to your Dad.

By the way, how'd you hit 'em?

I played good. About 6 strokes better than my average on this particular course. I putt consistently, chip erratically, and drive sufficiently . That's my description of my game if someone asks That day my chipping kicked in. As usual when one aspect raises in your game another can suffer which was my driving, duffing three off the tee box.

Thanks to you (and everyone else) for the kind words. My dad always said "I don't want to be all fucked up like Hogan's goat, laying in a bed, getting fed soup everyday by some old nurse with fat jiggly arms, looking out a window." It would have been hell for him. I had to sign the papers to take off life support. There was no hope so the sooner you do it the resources can be available for someone who has a chance for recovery. Quite an ordeal for my mom after almost 60 years of marriage. Our main focus now.

Sorry to hear about your father. My relationship with mine has been bumpy at times, reading this thread wants me to make more of an effort to spend more time with my dad.
