Talking Suddenly, It Became Interesting!!!

As I was growing up my father told my brother and I that a gentleman should know how to play golf. So he bought us the equipment and proceeded to teach us the game. My brother was so-so, but the scary part was that I was extremely good at it. Too bad I hated it!! My father quit playing with me when I was 14 because I beat him and the "Old Man" was no slouch at golf!!

Well, I thought that ended my dealings with that silly Scottish game that I hated. Oh no!!! 6 years later, my wife asked me to accompany her father to the links!! To make the wife happy, I agreed (damn!!) We went at it for 9 holes. Her dad was not a bad golfer, either. However, he was NOT good enough!! I beat him by 5 strokes. That was not so bad!! However, the only club that I used for those 9 holes was a PUTTER!! Father-in-law refused to ever play golf with me again. That suited me fine!!!

Now, this young lady has made golf interesting! This took a lot of skill and practice. I am sure that she could whip my butt!! She's not to hard on the eyes, either!! Even with my lousy vision!!!

FOUR!!!!

Yeah, she's ok, I guess, but can she do any of that with a one iron?

My wife, myself and my best client went to a ginzu restaurant. To make it exciting, I took one of my knives for him to juggle.

Had a great meal, he liked a sharp knife and kept all of his fingers.

We tipped him for that alone.

Check out the video again. She does it with woods, irons and a putter. Pretty good with all clubs!!!

Can you play beer pong with a golf club??

Except for her gender, goods looks, and nice build, and her ability with the golf clubs and and golf balls, she reminds me a lot of myself at that age.

When asked what's the best thing to do on the golf course if you get caught in a lightning storm, Lee Trevino replied, "Hold a one iron up over your head ... even God can't hit a one iron"

One More Time......

I said that my daddy never played with me again after I was 14. On second thought, that is not correct. When my son was 7 and I was 37, he told us that he wanted to learn to play golf. Remembering what my dad had said about a gentleman, I proceeded to teach him.

We bought him golf clubs and I took him to the driving range and showed him how to use them. Then one day he asked, "Can we play golf with Grandpa?" I made the call and amazingly, he agreed!!

In order to make it easier on the old boy, we went to a Par 3 Executive course. The Old Man was 77 at that time!! No longer in his golfing prime!!

On the third hole, the Old Man teed up the ball, took his best swing and he really got under the ball. The ball flew straight up in the air and landed behind my Dad!!! My son cracked up, laughing! At that point, I grabbed him by the shoulder and squeezed (a la Mr Spock's Vulcan Death Grip!!) causing him to wince in pain!! I then told him, "Don't EVER laugh at my daddy again!!" He got the message!

For the rest of the game, my father and my son spent zig zagging their way down the fairways, spending great deal of time in the rough. After a bunch of strokes, they would report to me, "I'll take a 3 or a 4 on that one!" I knew it was more like an 8 or a 10! They were both lying........to the extreme!!

As we finally completed the 9th hole, I handed the score card to my dad and noted that, "Here, you're the mathematician in the crowd, you add it up." When he was done, a puzzled look appeared on his face. It seems that my son had "out lied" his grandfather!! The Old Man had finished 4 strokes behind his grandson!! I had beat the both of them........badly!!

The Old Man NEVER played golf again, after that!!!


It was a Cinderella Story!!
