It's been so long since I've had a quality round.

Save my back, my arms, my shoulder -- things I've had worked on.

Every surgery I've had the last five years, I wondered, Can I do this again? Do I want to do this again? Then I realize I have to make money because I'm not qualified to do anything else.
