Golf, Golf and More Golf

Sometimes things happen and I am bewildered as to how they happen. I mean really, I'm a college educated woman and manage over 75 people and several millions of dollars at my job and I still get involved in things that I don't know how I get there.

I told Cowboy that I only wanted to play golf two days this weekend. I really wanted a day to myself at home just putzing around. And low and behold, we were at the golf course on Saturday, Sunday and Monday. Really, when did I say that was what I wanted to do. I think that man puts some kind of potion in my breakfast and suddenly I'm doing things that I didn't think that I consented too.

Now, I know that I could put my foot down and not go. Or I could take over total control of our comings and goings but that wouldn't really work well, I'm quite certain. But for the life of me, really, how did I end up on the golf course way to much this weekend.

The saving grace was that I really played well two of the three days. The third day, well I guess I was just over it. I swear, next time, this will not happen. I bound and determined for it not to happen again. Really, I'm not going to eat his breakfast. Wish me luck.

Just for you ....


Everyone can learn to play golf! Once a player as mastered the grip and stance, all he has to bear in mind, in the brief two-second interval it takes to swing, is to keep his left elbow pointed in toward the left hip and his right arm loose and closer to the body than the left . . . and take the club head past his right knee . . . and then break the wrists at just the right instant while the left arm is still traveling straight back from the ball and the right arm stays glued to the body . . . and the hips come around in a perfect circle . . and meanwhile everything will be mucked up unless the weight is 60% on the left foot and 40% of the right at the start . . . not an ounce more or less . . . and at just the right point in the turn the left knee bends in toward the right in a dragging motion until the left heel comes up off the ground . . . but not too far . . . and be sue the hands are over the right foot . . . but not on the toe more than the heel . . . except that the left side of the right foot is tilted off the ground . . . but not too far . . . and be sure the hands at the top of the swing are high and the shaft points along a line parallel with the ground . . . and if it’s a downhill lie the shaft is supposed to be pointed downhill, too . . . and pause at the top of the swing and count one, jerk the left arm straight down like a bell ringer yanking a belfry rope . . . and don’t uncock the wrists too soon and pull the left hip around in a circle . . . but don’t let the shoulders turn with the hips, they have to be facing the hole . . . and now transfer the weight 60% to the left foot and 40$ on the right . . . not an ounce more or less . . . and tilt the left foot now so the right side of it is straight . . . that’s the one you hit against . . . watch out for the left hand, it’s supposed to be extended . . . but not too stiff or the shot won’t go anywhere . . . and don’t let it get loose or you’ll hook . . . and don’t let the wrists uncock . . . but don’t force them or you’ll smother the shot . . . and don’t break too soon but keep your head down . . . then hit the ball! That’s all there is to it!

Lynilu--you got it. My definition of golf...moments of brilliance followed by complete and utter chaos.

It's very plain and simple: you are a golf junkie. Even though you want to do other things, you always go back to golf.
