The Joys of Golf

 Last weekend...Jer n I were invited to our friends annual luau. They always have a putting green set up and it gets a lot of action.  Now Jer is a real golf nut...but it wasn't always that way.  We lived right on a golf course for seven years and I can count on one hand how many times my hubby played that course. It really wasn't until he retired in 1999 that  the game of golf became Jer's passion. Now he is a Golf Pro..wanna be. One of our grand daughters happened to be at this Luau also and the Golf Pro..wanna be...zoomed in and started giving her pointers. Gabby was a good sport n listened to her Grandpa...golf pro wanna be.  he did teach her a few tips on how to hold the golf club...Next week..Jer is playing with grand son Zach who is 15 and loves the game of golf and has been taking lessons with a pro...What is that saying!!! "It's not about winning but how you play the game"!!!  WE WILL SEE! Should be interesting who comes out on top!

Sweet...I used to play golf a bit [was even in the movie with Kevin Costner's Tin Cup as an extra] but, it became too expensive a hobby for me.

Love the night golf practice! Some folks can play golf in their sleep, can't they. ;)

Love all of those wanna-beeeees, too.

Jer's a good teacher. I'm sure Gabby learned some valuable golf tips.

Seems like a great sport to bridge the generations. Hope Jer won't be too unhappy if your grandson wins.
