speaking of golf - i decided to give the sport a try. i bought a set of clubs before ever swinging a club. :P obv. didn't think this thru long enough to avoid the impulse buy.
anyway, my buddy recommended we hit the driving range first. said i should bring a pitching wedge to start with. i said, is that the wooden one
he laughed and said, "look for the letter P you ". so yeah, turns out i don't have any wooden clubs. but i do have one with P on it ().
but seriously, went out there - he showed me how to hold the thing and how to swing it. i got a bucket of 50 balls. out of the 50, i made contact with roughly 30. of the 30, 10 made it out past 50 yards. 6 of those went ~100 yards.
most were rollers. ground balls. whatever you wanna call em.
next day i woke up with tendinitis in my elbow. not really, it was just sore and i was whiny.
haven't played it since (mind you that was 2 weeks ago and we just had our first baby... a girl... thanks).
i will give it a few more tries - AT THE DRIVING RANGE FIRST - before i go embarrass myself at an actual golf course.
i let you all know when i get the call from PGA.
