Golf

It's been a long time since I've posted. It's really hard to come up with things worthy of writing about. I have to get over it and just write about what's happening, good, bad, or boring.

Like my golf. I'm just learning. I took lessons last fall for the first time, then completed another set of lessons last week. I took them from Troy Beck at Glenn Dale. She's a great instructor. While I learned a lot, I'm still having trouble remembering all the steps to a good swing when it comes time to tee off. Then a lot of my fairway shots don't get airbound, they just scuttle along the ground.

The practice range provides a lot of hope, but if you get an unfavorable lie in the rough, it's like the practice is all for naught.

The good thing is I didn't get in the sand at all last night! I played with a couple of classmates in the beginner's league. The bad thing is my 9 hole score wouldn't make the cut if I'd been playing 18......

Well you've gotta start somewhere. I'm sure the greats all started with the same problems. The important thing is to enjoy it - especially on beautiful days like we've been having. And if it's something you can enjoy with your husband too - all the better.

Been chased by any Darth Ducks during a tropical rainstorm on a golf course lately?
