i don’t know why but even though we’ve been doing it for many years, i am still surprised that we occasionally find enjoyment by going out and hitting a small ball around a course.
we go maybe 3 or 4 times a year which is not nearly frequently enough to get any good ( although i do occasionally win awards ), but infrequently enough to find it an amusing way to pass the time. perhaps we’ve stumbled upon the secret to enjoying the game of golf.
hitting a few buckets of balls on the driving range has become a semi-traditional start to summer.
odin, silently pondering his shot? or attempting to tune out all the advice we are trying to give him about putting his hands this-way-and-not-that-way and placing his feet just so? or both?
overall, odin has nice form, though we are still working on “keep your eye on the ball”.
observant golfers will note that odin might be a “lefty”, but only with golf a golf club. in tennis, hockey, baseball etc he’s most comfortable holding the raquet, club or bat as a “righty”, but such is not the case with a golf club.
we keep thinking he’ll adjust but he never does even after having proper lessons. time to buy some lefty clubs?
