It’s a nice feeling when you get to say “It’s Monday and I’m not at work.” Everyone hates Mondays. There’s a reason it’s not called “Blue Tuesday.” No one gets a “Case of the Thursdays.” No, we all start feeling that way about Mondays, usually, on Sunday mornings. But when you have that Monday off from work, even though you have to go in on Tuesday, it somehow just doesn’t seem nearly as bad, does it? But do you know what’s even better than being out of work on Monday? Being on the golf course on Monday.
There’s been a few times where I’ve skipped out on work to play golf, and most times it’s been on a Monday. And although I’ve included Wednesdays and Fridays as well, there’s nothing quite as liberating as standing on the first tee and saying to yourself “It’s Monday, and not only am I not at work, but I’m playing golf.”
So that leads me to some questions. I began to wonder what is the most popular day for golfers to play hooky from work and hit the links. But believe it or not, it seems there has been no clear research done on the subject. But in my research, I’ve learned a couple of things. For starters, it seems most golfers prefer to play on Saturdays vs. Sundays. Not sure why as, again, no clear reasons are given. However, if other golfers are anything like me, at least late in the season, I’ve mentioned how once football season starts my golf season comes to an abrupt end, or at least gets a change in schedule. But that only explains from September on. What about earlier in the season? I have no answers.
Secondly, there is no real information about which days golfers will miss work most often to play golf. Out of all of my research, strangely enough, I seemed to come across Tuesday quite often. Really? Tuesday? I don’t think I’ve ever taken a random Tuesday off for any reason, let alone golf. But that seemed to be the trend.
Anyway, my point is, at the time you are reading this, It’s Monday and I will not be at work. Better yet, it’s Monday and not only am I not at work, but I’m playing golf. So a question for all…when you’re going to skip out of work for a day to play golf, what day do you choose to take off? Monday? Friday? Tuesday?! I guess as long as you’re playing golf, it doesn’t really matter, does it?
Swing ’til you’re happy!
