Does having a hobby for over 20 years mean I should be good at it? If you answered yes, my next question is, “but what about golf?” I must say, since I joined a ladies league and golf every Tuesday with my pal Kari, I have at least learned the proper rules. That’s something right? Why do I continue to embarrass myself you say? It all comes down to having something fun to share with Mr B.
Mr B. takes it a wee bit more serious than I do and actually keeps his score the entire game. I usually stop counting around the 14th hole. One thing I really like about golf are the crazy outfits you get to wear. I mean really, where else could I possibly wear a mini skirt with weird pink graphics at my age?
I guess I might golf a little better if I wasn’t so busy meeting the locals. I know they’re not too popular with the grounds keeper but these little gophers were just adorable. They just seemed to be having the time of their life, running back and forth across the greens. “Hey little pal, have you seen my ball?”
Most golfers probably have an image in their head about how they look when they’re swinging. Maybe they think of their favorite Pro (mine is Ernie Els). I’m glad no ones photographing me, cause it’s really hard to look cool in these action shots. Take my word for it, Mr B is way cool.
So I’m thinking, if I keep at it and even apply myself, I might actually keep score an ‘entire’ game some day. But until then it’s really just like a walk in the park.
