Exactly ninety-eight years ago Kiffin Rockwell was shot down and killed during World War One.

That means that two years from now it will be exactly one hundred years, hard to believe. When I was born and named after him it was only forty-two years before.

I will have to venture down to his final resting place in Luxeuil-les-Bains for the third time and pay him tribute in person.

Better jot down a reminder in my agenda for two years hence so that I do not forget.

With three lousy double bogies on the front nine, any hopes I might have had for winning this prestigious tournament went straight down the drain.

Not that I was playing that poorly. My ball striking was pretty good most of the time. Unfortunately, I had some bad luck at the worst possible moments on some of the easiest holes, ironically enough. The most difficult holes I parred. No birdies though. That's what golf is all about.

I ended up shooting: 45 + 38 = 83. I was 19th out of 55, better luck next year.

It was an honor and a privilege to be part of this year's Zarafa Tour. Many partners and customers showed up, and it was a great opportunity for me to meet new people and receive feedback from them regarding our products.

Of course, the big excitement centered around announcing our new products and giving rough dates when they would be available. We had some really great presentations and I assisted with a workshop about the new Python API we are trying to promote.

In a previous post I complained about knee problems. Since then it has only been getting worse and worse. Now I limp around like an old man, and the pain is becoming so unbearable that I am starting to have serious concerns.

Rather than walk up the stairs I have to climb up each step by lifting myself with my arms. Going down the stairs is even more difficult, only possible one small step at a time.

Tomorrow morning I will go to the doctor and let him have a look. Curious what he has to say. Hope I don't have to go to the hospital for an examination.

There are still three golf tournaments left this year that I would really like to play in. Not to mention the few times I'm invited to play with others. Out of precaution I bailed out of a fun tournament for this weekend.

Maybe I just need some rest, but it's difficult for me being weak and giving up. I'm worried that by not practicing enough my game will go down the tube. Putting and chipping shouldn't be a problem though.
